Why talk to a growth marketing mentor?
GrowthMentor is the only mentorship platform on the internet with a niche focus on growth marketing. We felt growth marketers deserved it, because let’s face it, growth marketing is extremely demanding.
Any blog post you’ll read about “how to learn growth marketing” will harp on about the importance of being T-shaped. That’s great and all, but there’s no point in becoming T-shaped for the sake of being T-shaped. If you’re not applying what you’re learning you’re going to forget it at some point. It’s the same with learning a foreign language.
Being T-shaped is awesome, but become T-shaped as a result of learning new things that are required to learn in order to reach your short term goals. Let it happen naturally. For example, don’t try to learn Google Ads and Facebook ads until mastering the fundamentals of conversion rate optimization and have a product worth spending money on ads to send traffic to.
And one last thing, nobody else is going through exactly the same challenges as you. You’re 100% unique. And that’s the real advantage of this platform. It’s the 1:1 nature of actually speaking to a growth marketing expert that’s been in your shoes before. The advice you’ll get will be 100% unique to YOUR situation, something that can never happen be replicated through taking a course (even the fancy ones like Reforge, CXL, and Demandcurve) or by reading blog posts.

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).

GrowthMentor is a GIVE FIRST platform.
This policy literally enforces that.
This allows members to get access to high level advice at no extra cost.
If an extremely experienced mentor comes on to the platform with a super impressive resume, they will do their first few calls for free – so even bootstrapped startups can get on a call with them.
With all of that being said, we do believe that mentors should be able to choose if they want to be reimbursed for the time after they get their feet wet and get some experience under the belt.
Yes. If it’s not for you, simply cancel your membership within 14 days and contact support for a full refund. Note that refunds are not possible if you’ve scheduled any calls or have breached our terms of service.
