I was talking to a friend the other day who mentors people and he noticed many people come to him for mentoring even though they have no money. Now of course, this being part of his business, it's not feasible to mentor everyone for free. But I had a thought - let me know what yours are - pros, cons, etc. I'm trying to brainstorm a way for newbies to get help even when they're in a desperate situation.
Flat broke newbies went to a more seasoned marketer and worked as an INTERN - getting taught the lessons they need for FREE in exchange for doing the work FOR the marketer teaching them.
Let me explain...
Let's say Sally May wants me to teach her how to set up a squeeze page and link it to an autoresponder, etc. I could teach her how to do this BUT the example she'd be building would be on MY domain. She would have to upload the squeeze page, connect it to my autoresponder, add email messages in there, etc.
When we were done with the lesson, I would have another page out there as a net capturing leads and she'd have the knowledge she needs to do her OWN work in HER niche.
Or for instance, let's say they wanted to learn how to do keyword research. We teach them and have THEM replicate the process in one of our own niche markets, giving US the keyword list when they were finished - all cleaned up and ready to use, etc.
What am I missing? I feel like there's this big "BUT" that I can't see.
