Before we dive in…
What Is Growth Hacking ?
Sean Ellis founder of Growthhackers.com defines a growth hacker, “as a person whose true north is growth.”
One of the most prized members of a startup team is the growth hacker. Startups cannot afford to create an amazing product and wait for customers to come to them. Growth hackers have a unique job to figure out creative ways to amass a large number of users with a limited marketing budget.
Traditional marketing methods that require money for advertising, outsourced video production, teams of in-house content creators and design teams dedicated to marketing efforts are a dream for early-stage startups.
Growth hackers are tasked with the challenge of figuring out how to brand and market their startups in the most cost-effective ways.
Why Marketers Need to Focus on Growth Hacking:
“To succeed in business you need to be original, but you also need to understand what your customers want.”
— Richard Branson
With limited budgets and resources, growth hackers have to help their startups go from zero customers to thousands as fast as possible. That means to understand:
- Who their customer is
- Where they hangout online
- Which websites/apps they frequent
- What they care about
- What are the right ways to approach them
- What medium they prefer to communicate with and much more.
As a marketer, you start by making assumptions on who your customer is. As your customer base grows, you begin to learn who they truly are. From there you’re able to find smarter ways to get in front of the perfect audience. Growth hacking helps you to refine this hypothesis about your customer in an inexpensive way.
Every industry is different and what may work marketing a virtual reality product is not going to be the same for fashion or IOT. That is why it is important to get your growth hacking brain thinking creatively about how to go about finding the right customers.
We want to help you jumpstart that thought process and inspire you. After these guides, our hope is that you’ll look creatively at the tools around you that are free or inexpensive and go after your target market.
