“Great call with Rob! We talked a lot about content priorities and information hierarchy, and how important it is to get the whole design structure and layout well defined before involving a designer. Also, Rob shared with me a lot of resources, which is not that common, so I really appreciate that he put together a Notion file just for me. Thanks!”

Get advice on design and UX

It takes about .05 seconds for visitors to form an opinion about your website that determines whether they’ll stay or bounce.

Let’s face it, design and UX are incredibly important.

But there’s some good news: Design and UX can be learned by anyone. Proportions, ratios, guidelines, best-practices; all available online to help take the guess-work out of design.

Is your agenda is to become a UX designer yourself?

You can hack that learning curve by exchanging notes with veteran designers. Learn from them, ask them questions, and accept the homework they give you with enthusiasm. If anything, it’ll make your journey a lot less lonely.

Is your agenda is to use design and UX to increase your conversions and stand apart from your competitors?

Then you can hack that process by jumping on a screenshare with user interface designs who have experience in growth-driven design.

Three choices:

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup!  Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor.  You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
