Residual Income Business Online Mentoring Tips
Do you remember how you felt when you first started working on the internet and how everything seemed so foreign and different to what you were used to doing? This is exactly how inexperienced affiliates will feel when they join your residual income business and most of them will be very glad of your mentorship and assistance.
Below are some online mentoring tips and ideas you can use to help your new affiliates achieve success while at the same time contributing to the success of your own residual income business:
Firstly, always send a welcome email to your new affiliates and let them know you are willing to mentor them and available to help where necessary.
It will help if you can establish what level of internet experience they have so that you are in a better position to assist them.
A free and easy online way to communicate is by downloading and using Skype. As an example, an auto-responder is not the easiest thing in the world to set up if you have no prior experience, so if you both have your browsers open on the same web page you can talk your new affiliate through the areas that are causing problems.
Post regularly to a Getting Started section on your blog with useful tips and hints eg ideas on setting up folders in their email client to file their emails, as well as in their Favorites to save the regularly used urls, time management tips and advice on staying organized.
A series of training emails that can be sent out regularly from your auto-responder is another easy and useful way to provide your enrollments with information that they need to get their internet based home business up and running successfully.
Explain the benefits of starting a blog and show them how they can set up a blog and start the social networking train.
By sending them useful links to help them learn will prevent them wasting valuable time searching for information. For example: a step by step guide to learning html, how to add a stat counter to their site, how to create an author's resource box, how to set up a forum signature, how to open a Google Webmaster Account, how to make a sitemap, etc.
Suggest they search for online directories to submit their website url to create more back links or recommend a directory submitter.
Show them where to find the best resources for choosing their keywords and optimizing their website for the search engines.
Send them links to articles you have written as examples of how to optimize for their keywords and add a resource box.
Offer advice on how to submit their articles, the submission programs available and give them a list of your favorite article directories so that they have a good starting point.
Explain the benefits of and help them with creating a lead capture page so they can also start building their own opt-list.
Forward free e-books that have helped you build your residual income business.
Should your new affiliates start recruiting when they do not have much experience themselves, offer to mentor their new recruits too.
Share the internet marketing ideas and advertising methods that are working for you with your affiliates. Keeping them a closely guarded secret will only hinder the growth of your own residual income business.
Mentor your affiliates to the best of your ability and share your success tips, experience and knowledge and you will experience more success with your own residual income business.
