Mark Colgan

Chief Revenue Officer @ TaskDrive.com
I've built Growth Stacks for B2B SaaS companies based on my knowledge and experience of running inbound and outbound strategy. For one client this meant a 328% increase in new leads and a 30% increase in net new revenue. I have the ability to view the entire AARRR lifecycle and help businesses understand the architecture they need in their Growth Stack so that it is scalable, repeatable and profitable and drives revenue.

Ever heard of the 70% rule? It's an approach experienced managers use to delegate their tasks - look it up. Marketing Automation is not to be taken lightly, it can be the difference between having more time to build a kick-ass strategy or more time spent doing a repetitive task that could originally have been automated. Automation can take many forms, from having a script in place for your bidding, to having a slick reporting set-up. Let's chat to see where you're at with this.

“Mark Colgan is a great mentor, who really gets marketing automation and the software stack that goes with it. He really understood the root of my questions around marketing automation. He is also a well connected guy on the growth marketing scene and helped me out with a couple of connections. I look forward to speaking with Mark again soon!”

Get advice on marketing automation

Let’s face it. Marketing Automation isn’t cheap, and it isn’t simple.

If you’re paying potentially thousands of dollars for these tools, it’s important to make sure you’re actually getting as much out of them as you can. If you’re not, it’s time to re-think the resources you’ve dedicated to run it, or re-think the platform as being the right fit for your business.

But it’s not always easy to know if you are or aren’t doing it the right way. Day to day tasks and the short term horizon often cloud the ability to have time to take a step back and look at your market automation and the operations surrounding it as a whole. Further, if you aren’t intimately familiar with the tools and platforms at your disposal, you may not know it’s true capabilities (or limitations).

If you’re looking to learn how to implement marketing automation to save time on your workload and be more productive, you’re in the right place.

On GrowthMentor, you’ll be able to book calls with the best marketing automation experts in the industry. What differentiates our marketing automation experts from other platforms’ is the vetting process. It’s not enough to just be an expert at marketing automation, you need to also be a friendly person with excellent soft skills.

Three choices:

  • Skype
  • Zoom
  • Google Hangouts

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.
