Marketing Mentor

Frewy

Hi Folks, I am the CEO of a young health tech Saas startup. I am focused on developing my understanding and capability to lead our marketing efforts. I have been trying to find a marketing mentor for a little while but have not been able to find the right person. Any hints or tips on the best way to find a marketing mentor? Anyone here interested in sharing there experience and wisdom?

Cheers

    I feel you.
    As the others recommended GrowthMentor here, I also had a great experience with it.

    When you're stuck and not sure what to do next in terms of lead gen, what channels to use etc., there are so many cool SaaS mentors that have successfully dealt with this and can help you out with relevant advice.
    One-two 30-min calls and you'll have a much clearer picture on what you need to do in terms of marketing. Good luck!

    As @rosiesherry has already pointed out, my site mentorcruise.com could be a good way to get looking, try this page: https://mentorcruise.com/filter/Marketing/.

    As others have pointed out, GrowthMentor is a great alternative too. On MentorCruise the focus is more on recurring, longterm mentorship. Whatever floats your boat!

    Hey Frewy,
    I'm the co-founder of a mentor matching platform called OneUpOneDown. We make near-peer matches, so match mentees with a mentor who's just a couple of steps ahead in specific areas of professional and/or personal development. At the moment our platform is specifically for women in business in tech. If this is relevant to you, signing up could be a great way to find a mentor (it's free at this time). If it's not, I can offer some advice on how to find a mentor.

      I just shared this with a couple "women in STEAM" orgs on Twitter: https://twitter.com/nomis_ton/status/1232491493052432384

      Also, FYI the website footer still says 2019.

      Thanks Natalie, very cool website and concept! Would you consider extending the service to a very grateful male?

        Not at this stage, I'm sorry. I'll send you a message and see if I can help you find someone suitable, especially given we're basically neighbours :)

        Maybe even one from the same little island : )
