Anoop Sudhakaran

Growth Marketer (+ pursuer of amateur travel photography, professionally)
Developed playbooks for a B2B technology brand. From new user qualification to SDR integration. I've integrated the platform with Clearbit to identify target accounts and trigger ABM campaigns using a mix of bot + chat personnel.

Kanako Tone

Marketing Operations Guru
I'm Drift certified and have extensively used it for website conversion activities. This tool is very unique as it requires sales enablement/coaching, which I have experience with as well.

At Sentient I developed intuitive conversational marketing pathways to qualify (and route) prospects based on their fitness and relavance with our marketing technology product. We used a combination of firmographic enrichment functions from Clearbit paired with Q&A qualification to increase the quality and consistency of leads.

Stefan Secker

Head of Demand Generation
Set up bots and welcome messages. Most simple, some of them a bit more complex to qualify leads. Turned out to be the best source of booked meetings.

Trevor Fox

Director of Growth at
The ultimate 80/20 rule marketing tool. Depending on the use case, Drift can be 5x over-implemented but it can also be one of the most effective parts of a lead gen program.

Mark Colgan

B2B SaaS | Outbound Sales, Product Onboarding, Brand Building via Podcasts & Marketing Automation | Techstars '18
Implemented and built out Conversation Based Marketing Playbooks for a high growth B2B SaaS business resulting in an increase of visitors to leads. I really like the product and the team, but more suitable for companies with high volume of traffic.

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.
