Why choose to work with a Marketing Mentor?

There are a number of reasons why you might choose to work with a marketing mentor, including helping with:

  • Career growth

  • Personal development

  • Business success

The 1:1 Mentoring aims to provide a personal experience focusing on the needs and objectives of our customers, ensuring that each one is fully understood by everyone involved, that they are planned for, and finally that each objective is achieved.

Whether you are starting out for the first time, or have a well-established business, our 1:1 sessions are designed to help you and your colleagues make sense of how different marketing tools and approaches can make a significant difference to the success of your business.

Our Mentoring is run by CIM-approved Mentors who will work around your life commitments.

Why Marketing Mentoring Works:

  • Studies show that professionals who work with a mentor are statistically proven to earn more than 75% of executives interviewed, said that mentoring had played a key role in their careers

  • You will receive independent advice relating to your goal expectations and business plans, from an experienced person who is not emotionally connected to your business or its competitors

  • Mentoring will help to develop the capabilities and skills that are needed to succeed in a dynamic economy

  • It will also help you to identify your individual strengths and find the best way to use these strengths in your business.

Benefits for Business Owners

A large majority of our mentoring clients are independent businesses that have the ambition to increase profits and grow their businesses. Our coaching and mentoring programmes fill the gaps to help your business to thrive, by:

  • Keeping you on track, focusing your time on the value-adding activities that will move you towards achieving your long-term business objectives
  • Sharing knowledge and helping you to develop realistic strategies that will help you to increase your profits, customer base, revenue streams and channels to market
  • Acting as a sounding board for any ideas you have, providing you with feedback and validation from a third party.
  • This will boost your confidence when making choices.
