These answers may help. If you can’t find an answer to your question, you are welcome to contact our office in Australia via telephone or email.

It’s ‘normal’ to have questions or concerns when it comes to choosing a mentor. For many people choosing a mentor, is a big step out of their comfort zone especially if they have never worked with a mentor before. We want you to be assured that all our mentors have passed our criteria and have agreed to our terms and conditions as a prerequisite to listing their services on the Best Mentors Directory.

For Mentors

No, we do not charge a commission from any mentoring arrangement. Mentors pay a listing fee when they are approved to list their mentoring services on the Best Mentors Directory, they also can increase their presence on Best Mentors by purchasing advertising space in appropriate places on our website. Money for mentoring services is paid directly from the mentee/protégé to their mentor on the chosen mentor’s website after agreeing to their terms and conditions regarding their mentoring arrangement (services that they will receive). The agreement for the mentoring services provided is between the mentor and the person receiving the mentor services. We at Best Mentors do not charge or receive a commission from any bookings.

Of course, your profile will list the range of mentoring services that you offer and approximate prices for each type of service that you charge. By using the Best Mentors Directory potential mentees/proteges are referred to you via your website and contact options listed on your Best Mentors Directory Profile. We do not set your pricing but understand that by listing on Best Mentors.com you are effectively listing yourself as a mentor who provides mentoring services on a directory with other mentors who are offering similar services. In effect Best Mentors is a mentoring service marketplace.

In any marketplace providers are offering competitive prices to their customers. If you want clients, it is suggested that you set your prices to be competitive in this mentor marketplace against similar mentors who are offering fair and reasonable prices. You want to provide value for money services, remember that nobody wants to be ripped off.

It has always been said that “you get what you pay for”. If you provide outstanding or personalised mentoring services in an unsaturated niche, then you could charge a higher fee for mentees/proteges to work with you.

The point is, that our mentors decide their own fees and structure for service provision, it is advisable though that mentors ensure a high standard of mentoring service provision for the clients that we refer to them considering value for money for all services provided. We suggest you consider a win, win, win approach to your service provision and this includes your fee structure.

No, the definition of a mentor is that they are a trusted advisor and expert in their field.  We are serious about our mentors being what we say they are though, the Best Mentors in the world.

We understand that there are experts who are world class or top of their field who have never mentored anyone before.  At Best Mentors, we want to provide an opportunity for those experts to become mentors, which is why we offer a comprehensive and prerequisite mentor training package as part of your sign up/ listing fee if you have never mentored previously.

We also make it part of our induction for all our mentors to complete the training as part of their sign up with Best Mentors prior to listing them on our Best Mentor Directory.  This gives us as professionals the assurance of the quality of the mentors on our directory that they all know our service provision standards and our expectations of the mentors who are listed with Best Mentors.

By doing this those who are seeking mentoring services can have confidence that they are in the right place and indeed choosing from the Best Mentors in the world.

Knowing that you (and all our mentors) have completed the training provided by Best Mentors raises the bar, shows your commitment and increases your assurance that you have got what it takes to be the very best mentor possible.  It can ensure that we are on the “same page” in relation to mentoring service provision and gives confidence that your clients are receiving the Best Mentoring solutions possible.

Completing the Best Mentors mentor training is not only informative and the best way to be assured that you are on the right track with your mentoring service provision, but it shows that you are dedicated and can offer mentees/proteges the best mentoring experience they can find anywhere in the world.
