Sponsor Or Mentor You Choose
I love to share discussions I have with folks online about marketing. Just recently I had a conversation with a good friend about why so many people seem to fail online. I think at the root of the problem is folks pick the wrong type of person to join.
In this article I am going talk about joining a sponsor or mentor. As you will see the two are not the same.
Sponsor or Mentor – The Battle For Supremacy
There is a war going on right now and you might not even be aware of it. There are 2 different types of people both trying to sell you stuff. As you will see if your not careful you could end up joining the wrong person. It’s not your fault because they both look the same from outward appearances.
Both types of people have compelling arguments, however only 1 type will actually care about you. I am going to help you know the difference right away.
The Differences Between a Sponsor or Mentor
A Sponsor: A person or organization that provides funds or support for a project or activity carried out by another, in particular.
- Sells you on the compensation plan
- Makes everything sound easy and push button simple
- Reverse markets
- Cares more about the numbers than the people
- Doesn’t return phone calls/emails
- Sells hype, fluff, flash, smoke, mirrors, dreams
In my humble opinion sponsors are worthless if your a newbie. You will never learn anything from them, but they will pat you on the back and say “good job!”
A Mentor: a wise and trusted counselor or teacher
- Takes the time to explain things so that you understand them
- Cares about you maybe more than you do
- Shares knowledge freely
- Focuses on quality
- Easy To Get A Hold Of
- Builds relationships that last a lifetime
My question to you is, which one of these people would you rather work with: A Sponsor or mentor?
