Jim Kingsbury

Growth Marketing Leadership
Many years of e-commerce marketing experience going all the way back to the early days of Amazon.com (when it was still called Amazon.com). Especially since early 2021, I've become a big believer in factoring in the full customer digital journey across many, many months when developing growth marketing strategies.

Why talk to an eCommerce mentor?

Ecommerce startups are a great way to get into the business world and make some money. While they are not as risky as other types of businesses, they still require careful planning and research to ensure that they succeed. There are many different ways that you can go about starting your own eCommerce startup, but one of the most important things that you need is a mentor who has done this before.

Mentors are great because they are people who have “been there and done that” and can help you avoid the same mistakes that they made growing their eCommerce brands. They have experience in running an eCommerce startup, so they know what it takes to succeed.

Mentors can also help with challenges that typically arise during the course of running an ecommerce startup like scaling Facebook ads, hiring marketers, deciding what CMS to use, and nailing your market positioning. They can help point out mistakes before they happen, which saves time and money—and sometimes even embarrassment! And finally, if there ever comes a time when things aren’t going well with your company (and there will be times like this), having someone on hand who understands what it’s like will make those tough times easier for everyone.

The good news is that there are plenty of people who want to help out. You might be surprised at how many people are willing to give advice and guidance when it comes to starting up your eCommerce company. Join GrowthMentor today to unlock access to some of the world’s best eCommerce mentors that genuinely enjoy helping people grow.

Simple answer

Because they are nice people.

Extended answer

  • They genuinely enjoy helping.
  • They want to share their experiences and help others learn from them. Sharing their experiences, wins, and failures can truly change the trajectory of someone else’s path.
  • It keeps them on their toes. No better way to sharpen your skills than to teach someone else!
  • Speaking with up-and-coming businesses is fun and exciting!
  • Growth Mentors have a growth mindset and are looking to learn in each and every situation- including mentoring sessions.
  • They are new to the platform. New mentors are asked to do some free sessions, in the beginning, to get their feet wet and get a feel for the platform. Only after mentors have 3 reviews can they set a price and charge.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok 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 openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Full disclaimer- there are no silver bullets for Growth, so we can’t make any false promises.

If you have a growth mindset and are looking to connect with various experienced individuals and learn from them, you will get value from GrowthMentor.

All mentors are 100% legit. They’re not here to pitch or sell you anything – they’re here to help people like you who are trying to better themselves.
