The definitive playbook by the pioneers of Growth Hacking, one of the hottest business methodologies in Silicon Valley and beyond. It seems hard to believe today, but there was a time when Airbnb was the best-kept secret of travel hackers and couch surfers, Pinterest was a niche web site frequented only by bakers and crafters, LinkedIn was an exclusive network for C-suite executives and top-level recruiters, Facebook was MySpace’s sorry step-brother, and Uber was a scrappy upstart that didn’t stand a chance against the Goliath that was New York City Yellow Cabs. So how did these companies grow from these humble beginnings into the powerhouses they are today? Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t explode to massive worldwide popularity simply by building a great product then crossing their fingers and hoping it would catch on. There was a studied, carefully implemented methodology behind these companies’ extraordinary rise. That methodology is called Growth Hacking, and it’s practitioners include not just today’s hottest start-ups, but also companies like IBM, Walmart, and Microsoft as well as the millions of entrepreneurs, marketers, managers and executives who make up the community of Growth Hackers. Think of the Growth Hacking methodology as doing for market-share growth what Lean Start-Up did for product development, and Scrum did for productivity. It involves cross-functional teams and rapid-tempo testing and iteration that focuses customers: attaining them, retaining them, engaging them, and motivating them to come back and buy more. An accessible and practical toolkit that teams and companies in all industries can use to increase their customer base and market share, this book walks readers through the process of creating and executing their own custom-made growth hacking strategy. It is a must read for any marketer, entrepreneur, innovator or manger looking to replace wasteful big bets and "spaghetti-on-the-wall" approaches with more consistent, replicable, cost-effective, and data-driven results.
Growth hacking has taken the business world by storm. It has been there for quite some time offline, but now it has gone viral. In the past, it was McDonald’s using it to pop up at every highway back in the 1950s. Now it has spread its arm and has become a widely applied corporate concept. It is especially famous in the world of start-ups because it provides them a cost-friendly way to expand while remaining within their budgets. As start-ups can’t rely on Super Bowl ads or Mega-expensive billboards, they depend on growth hacking to back them up in cheaper ways. Any infant business can apply growth hacking and if they do it in the right way they can prosper beyond their expectations. From Dropbox to Uber, they all used growth hacking to reach their goals and achieve exponential growth rates. The only thing they had in common was product scalability. So if a product has scalability growth hacking can become a powerful tool to spread it like fire through word of mouth on a big scale.
