ONE MONTH MENTOR, Product Overview

ONE MONTH MENTOR is a mentorship program, divided into 31 days of training.

Each day, you are given one or more videos to watch and a checklist of tasks to be completed that day.

John says, “I will teach you how to build a profitable online business over 31 days. That’s right, 31 days from now you will be in a position to ‘go it alone’.”

The basic outline of the course is:

1.  Laying the Business Foundations

2.  Building a Solid Online Presence

3.  Creating a Hot Selling Killer Product

4.  Website Development & Profit Funnel Building

5.  Proper Positioning for Peak Sales Conversions

6.  Driving Loads of Hungry Buyer Traffic

Support is available whenever you need a question answered, or a problem solved.

John offers a 60-day money back guarantee on ONE MONTH MENTOR.

A Snapshot of the Good & the Bad

The Good

John Thornhill, the author of the program, is a very successful internet marketer.

The program includes LOTS of video instruction.

The extremely low cost makes this a phenomenal learning opportunity.

The Bad

There is not as much printed material as some other programs.

The testimonials are a little confusing because they focus more on John than on ONE MONTH MENTOR.

Who Could Benefit from ONE MONTH MENTOR?

ONE MONTH MENTOR is targeted at people who have tried to get into the field of internet marketing, but have gotten discouraged by a lack of real help and training. It is for people who want to follow a proven leader and are willing to work hard.

The training does a good job of targeting this audience. However, there are three expectations which are presumed but not stated.

1. You need to be willing to select a domain name from the very beginning of the training.

If you already know what direction you’d like to go in internet marketing, that’s fine. But if you don’t, this could be problematic, because you might choose a domain name and set up a blog, and then decide it doesn’t fit what you want to do.

John does suggest that you use your own name as your domain name (e.g. If you do this, you are essentially branding your own name. That’s perfectly okay. It’s just something you may want to think about.

2. You need to be willing to create a product.

Although you will learn how to promote other people’s products and earn money from that, the biggest chunk of this training is devoted to helping you create your own product.

If you don’t already have an idea of a product you’d like to create, there is opportunity to brainstorm during the course. But this could take you quite a while.

3. You need to be willing to dive into the nitty gritty of setting up a website, if you don’t already have this skill.

The instructions in ONE MONTH MENTOR are clear, and there is support if needed.

But it is not as easy or straightforward as it could be.

(In contrast to this, a program called Wealthy Affiliate gives you access to a free site builder, which makes building a website very simple.)

I am giving two ratings for ONE MONTH MENTOR in the category of “Who Could Benefit…”

For those who DO want to create a product, I would give ONE MONTH MENTOR a 7 out of 10 in this category.

For those who DO NOT want to create a product, at least not right away, I would give ONE MONTH MENTOR a 3 out of 10 in this category.

For the sake of giving an overall score in this category, I will say 5.

Is the Flow of Instruction in ONE MONTH MENTOR Easy to Follow, and Are the Steps Helpful?

Here are the basic subjects covered in ONE MONTH MENTOR:

Email and Hosting
Domain Name
Google Adsense
Banner Ads
Niche Selection
List Building
PLR (Private Label Rights)
Product CreationAudio
Sales Page
Thank-you Page
Optin Form
Affiliate Page
Find Other Products
Reviews and Articles

Every tiny step, including all the sub points not mentioned above, is explained on video. The steps are easy to follow, and John goes into a lot of detail to make sure each step is understood.

I do have a difference of opinion about the order of the steps, however.

In ONE MONTH MENTOR, not only do you have to choose a domain name right away, but you start blogging before even thinking about what your niche is going to be.

Your blog posts can be used to help you see what your interests are, and help in deciding on a niche. But I think it would be much better to jot down thoughts and ideas somewhere else first.

Why spend money on a domain and put time and effort into a website before you know what your direction is?

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 6 out of 10 in this category.

Important Note: If you decide to try ONE MONTH MENTOR, you will be given access to new material each day of the month. I would strongly recommend waiting until Day 9 to even start the program. That way, you can choose a niche before choosing a domain name and starting a blog. In the meantime, you could type out sample blog posts on a Word Processing document for your own reference. Remember, there is a 60-day guarantee.

Is the Cost of ONE MONTH MENTOR Worth Trying it?

This is one area where ONE MONTH MENTOR hits the top of the charts.

The original cost is listed at $297, but you can get it here for $27. This is a one-time fee.

ONE MONTH MENTOR is not my overall favorite. However, for such a vast amount of training and information on product creation and how to sell your own product, such a low price is almost unheard-of!

Not to mention the fact that if you decide within 60 days that it’s not for you, you can get the $27 back.

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 10 out of 10 in this category.


John Thornhill backs up his training with an offer of personal support. He may also have others, who work with him, help with any questions or problems that people have.

ONE MONTH MENTOR has a Facebook group, but it does not appear to be very active. Maybe it was at one time, but has fizzled out.

That being said though, to have the owner (John) offer personal support is a step up from what you would get with just a help desk.

It would also be very beneficial to have his input on your product, because sometime down the road, as you build a relationship with him, he may choose to help promote your product. Wouldn’t that be awesome!

I’m not trying to get your hopes up with a pie in the sky idea, but I just want to say it’s possible.

Considering the support that is available, what is not available, and what is potentially availableI am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR an 8 out of 10 in this category.

Is there Proof that People Have Been Successful with ONE MONTH MENTOR?

Hmm. This is a very interesting question when it comes to ONE MONTH MENTOR.

There is no doubt in my mind that people have benefited greatly from John Thornhill’s help. I have seen the amazing success of some who are associated with him.

However, it is unclear to me how much ONE MONTH MENTOR, as a specific program, has contributed to that.

On the sales page for ONE MONTH MENTOR, John includes some glowing testimonials. But these testimonials all point to John himself, without specifically mentioning ONE MONTH MENTOR.

If someone is going to give a testimonial about a training program, they should say something about the actual program.

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 2 out of 10 in this category.

Does ONE MONTH MENTOR include Video Training?

Yes, ONE MONTH MENTOR is primarily based on video. John has done an excellent job in this area.

Each day, at least one new video is released. In most cases, there are multiple videos for one day.

The videos are short, with each one geared to a specific action you need to take.

Altogether, there more than 7 hours of video included.

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 10 out of 10 in this category.

Does ONE MONTH MENTOR Make the Training Material Available in Print Form?

Each day there is a checklist in the form of a pdf. These lists seem to be thorough and well-thought-out.

It would be nice, though, if there were either written transcripts of the videos or at least written summaries of the key points of each video. This would help those who learn better by reading than by listening.

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 5 out of 10 in this category.

Is ONE MONTH MENTOR Continually Upgrading and Improving?

The ONE MONTH MENTOR program is a complete program, packaged and presented as it is. Although John may choose to upgrade or improve it sometime in the future, it is not represented as something that is going through continual review and improvement.

Keeping in mind that ONE MONTH MENTOR can be purchased for only $27, this may not seem like the kind of question to be asking. But ongoing improvement is something that characterizes other training programs, so I feel it’s fair to ask of ONE MONTH MENTOR as well.

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 0 out of 10 in this category.

Has the Author/Owner of ONE MONTH MENTOR Had Significant Success?

Yes, John Thornhill has had loads of success! He is seen as a leader in the industry.

Pretty much any product John creates is worth looking into!

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 10 out of 10 in this category.

Other Considerations Regarding ONE MONTH MENTOR

This is where I get a little more subjective.

The reason I do this is that I want to let you know I’ve been in your shoes — looking for a way to make money online.

One thing that means a lot to me, but which is a little harder to explain, is philosophy, style, and approach to service. I have come to appreciate people and programs that have the philosophy of helping people whether they purchase anything or not.

I think many internet marketers strive to do this — to give value, regardless of their own bottom line. Some seem to exude service and helpfulness more than others.

This has to do with not only serving one’s own customers and providing support, but also teaching them to have an attitude of service toward their future customers.

So I know this is subjective, but …

I am giving ONE MONTH MENTOR a 5 out of 10 in this “Other” category.

    Thanks for this review. Its interesting how many of these types of programs are out there. Its so tough to know which are good and which are bad so thanks for this insight. I guess for $27 you can’t go too far wrong so I may have a better look at this.


    • July 18, 2018 at 4:30 pm

      Thanks, Dan. Yes it is hard to know a lot of times if something is actually good or not. I think it’s really important to take an honest look at our own desires and abilities too, as we evaluate whether or not a certain program is right for us.

    thanks for this. having been burnt so many times at the beginning of my journey to build an online business, these sort of reviews really help me to make an informed decision on what I can trust. thanks again.

    • July 18, 2018 at 4:33 pm

      You’re welcome. I can’t count the times I’ve been burnt, too. I really want to help people avoid that, and find what’s right for them.

    I feel good when i read a product review that has positive aspects to it, gives me hope that internet bussiness isnt all about scams. This program seems like a real legitimate one and if at some point i have need for it, i will definitely give it a try. Great review, thanks.

    • July 23, 2018 at 9:19 am

      Thanks, Queen. Yes, it is good to know there are legitimate offers out there.

  • December 29, 2018 at 11:12 pm

    I must say that I did not heard about this product so far. It looks pretty interesting but I think that it is for more experienced marketers. I would like to give it a try, it offers a money back guarantee and that is something that I like. I already have a niche and a domain name.

    • January 20, 2019 at 6:19 am

      That’s an interesting observation, Daniel, that One Month Mentor may be more helpful for experienced marketers. You may be right, although I think John Thornhill was trying to target people who would be new to online marketing. So that brings up the question of how well One Month Mentor meets its goals. When comparing it with Wealthy Affiliate, I think WA provides more training and support for those who are just beginning to learn how to earn money online.

  • December 29, 2018 at 11:21 pm

    I would agree with you that having to select and think of a domain name right of the bat would be a waste of money if you are a new comer to affiliate marketing.  If the name chosen is not suitable or you change your mind midstream or find a better name, you would have to start all over again.  This is not a viable option in my opinion.

    Not everyone wants to create a product of their own, so it seems this opportunity is geared specific to those who are wanting to promote a craft or product of their own as the main aim.  This would restrict the audience and possible buyers for this product.

    Creating a website is something I can relate to and would support whole heartedly as this gives one so much scope for designing your own layouts and being able to create your very own content and to edit and publish accordingly.

    Having read through your review, it sounds like a crash course in Affiliate Marketing that assumes there are a whole lot of things you already know before you start.  I guess for someone who is trying to find out about affiliate marketing and not expecting to make lots of money from it, but using it as a handbook or manual, would benefit greatly.

    Thank you for providing in-depth information for us to be able to make an informed decision.

      You’re welcome, Edu. I think you have synthesized the key points very well.

      Yes, I agree that creating a website gives so much room for creativity. I think it also helps a person to grow tremendously in their skills as they continue to create, and to help their audience.

      Your comment has made me think a little more about where John Thornhill is coming from. Trying to look at it from his perspective, he has created a product (One Month Mentor) which he wants to use to reach a particular audience. I guess it seems natural that his product would actually teach his audience to do what he has done–to create a product. But, as you said, not everyone wants to create their own product.

      In contrast to this, I think focusing more on a website, rather than one specific product, gives a person the ability to help their audience in greater ways, both with content and with a variety of products (as in affiliate marketing).
