Why talk to a Google Ads expert?
You can talk to your Google Ads mentor about whatever you want.
A very common use case for talking to a Google Ads expert is using them as a sounding board to get feedback on your Adwords strategy.
Want help on the nitty-gritty?
Another super popular use case is to set up a screen share and show how your Google Ads campaign to your mentor. They’ll give you 1:1 advice on how to set up your campaigns, ad groups, and ads.
It’s a lot faster to learn by asking questions directly to experts than by consuming random content on the internet.
Here are some ideas for inspiration:
- You’re considering outsourcing your Google Ads to an agency or freelancer but just aren’t sure
- You’ve got a few campaigns running with decent conversions but want a quick audit in realtime of how everything’s structured
- You’re thinking of offering Adwords services yourself and want a bit of career advice from those that have “been there and done that.”
- You’re not using the full range of ad extensions and you want some help on setting them up
- You’re looking for second opinions on your ad copy
Google Ads Mentorship for Beginners
Speaking to a Google Ads mentor can help you avoid most of the silly mistakes that beginners make. But if you’re not lucky enough to have a colleague or friend that’s willing to mentor you, it’s pretty darn hard to find one!
The best Google Ads experts usually charge between $90-150 per hour.
This is out of budget for most beginners to spend on mentorship or advice, so they view it as a “luxury” and just move on without any mentorship.
So instead of learning under the wing of someone with real-world experience, you try and learn the hard way.
What ends up happening usually looks a little like this:
- You spend crazy hours reading blog posts and watching courses.
- After a while, you build up a false sense of confidence and jump headfirst into building your first campaign. Yay! Launch!
- 3 days later, no conversions, OMG!
- You shut off your campaign and convince yourself, “Google Ads don’t work for my business.”
Google Ads Mentorship for Hiring Managers
At this point you might decide that you aren’t the best fit for managing your Google Ads.
Hey, that’s totally cool.
I consider myself to be well above average at Google Ads and I still don’t trust myself to be the primary caretaker of my account.
Not everyone’s cut out to be a Google Ads expert.
And if you’ve got other things to do, like running your business, outsourcing Google Ads management is a no brainer.
How a GrowthMentor can help you if you’re in this position:
- Get help with hiring: Should I hire a Google Ads freelancer, agency, or hire someone fulltime for an inhouse position?
- Get help with vetting Google Adwords experts: How do I know if the people applying for the position really know their stuff?
- Get help with negotiating contracts: Here is the proposal I received from my Google Ads expert, is it reasonable or are they overpricing me?

The success of any growth experiment strongly depends on how well it is set up. Are you using a standardized and repeatable framework? Are your growth experiments prioritized with respect to other potential experiments that could also drive growth?
Growth hacking is all about using an agile process that’s grounded in rapid experimentation and constant learning. It’s the business version of holding a growth mindset, and it’s for that very reason that it works so well.
The age-old dilemma. Should you hire in-house marketers or outsource to an agency or freelancers.
Too much consumption (ie. passive learning) isn’t always good for you because you probably won’t use more than 5% of the knowledge you’re spending a lot of time accumulating.

- Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
- Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
- Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
