What is Growth Hacking?

Growth hacking is basically a new process for acquiring and engaging users that combines

traditional, analytical and marketing skills with product development skills. It is not a

replacement for marketing, neither is it better than marketing, rather it is just different than

marketing. The goals of growth hacking are based in marketing but driven by product


The term “growth hacker” was coined by Sean Ellis in 2010. A growth hacker builds metric-

based strategy within the parameters of a scalable and repeatable method for growth.

Growth hackers find novel and technology-based avenues to push the growth of an

organization, which sometimes goes beyond the bounds of what is expected or advised.

The Growth Hacking ProcessThere are definite steps that help a skilled growth hacker to grow their company.

Defining doable goals: the process begins with focusing on a narrow actionable goal.

instead of focusing on the overall organizational goal, it is important, to begin with, a

narrow but attainable goal.

Implementing analytics to track the goals: without analytics, goals are vague. analytics

gives valuable data to shape and refine the goals.

Utilizing existing strengths: every organization has inherent strengths or assets that can be

leveraged to drive growth. it is important to design the growth strategy and plan the tasks

based on strengths of the enterprise.

Executing the plan: once the goals are identified and a strategy has been designed, it is

time to execute the plan.

Optimizing the plan: plans are fluid and they are meant to be optimized. it is essential to

tweak the plan and re-run the strategy when it is appropriate to do so.

Repeat: when a plan has been executed and optimized, you need to repeat the entire

growth hacking process with newly identified goals and data.

Tips and TricksAs we must have known by now that SEO or search engine optimization,

utilizing the social media and including a call to action (CTA) is an important and

undeniable part of growth hacking. However, there are certain tricks, apart from focusing

on just these techniques, that can help to enhance the growth hacking results.

Here are a few tips to guide you through successful growth hacking:

1. Know Your Customers

Companies that prioritize customer-centric policies enjoy higher revenue growth.

Knowing the customers gives insights to create better content and plan appropriate

growth hacking strategy.

2. Maximize the Use of Content You Already Have

While marketers emphasize on creating new content, it is also essential to revisit and

optimize the content they already have. Enhancing the keywords in your call-to-actions and

updating old blog posts with new content certainly keep them relevant for search and draws

more audience for your content.

3. Sell Your Story, Not Just your Product

A story always has a better recall value in comparison to your product name. A story enables

customers to understand your point of view and the features you incorporated in your

product. A good story will stay with your audience and they will start sharing it with others.

4. Think Topics, Not Just Keywords

When it comes to SEO, marketers should think beyond keywords. Search engines attempt to

understand the intent of the search and comprehend natural language. Therefore,

marketers should consider conversations around topics instead of just focusing on

optimizing for certain keywords.

5. Reconsider the Usage of Your Keywords

Checking Google Webmaster Tool and discovering what keywords people use to find your

best blog posts can assist marketers to optimize their efforts. Incorporate those keywords in

your CTA (both in texts and in images). If there are no applicable CTAs for those keywords,

create new types of content like white papers, eBooks, etc.

6. Use Behavioural and Demographic Targeting For Social Media Ads

Aligning user’s search intent with the results they get delivered is essential for an enriched

user experience. This helps in ensuring that your ads are relevant to your audience,

thereby increasing their likelihood of engaging with your content.

7. Use Analytics Wisely

To accelerate the growth of an organization, it is crucial to diving deep into analytics and

look beyond page views. Marketers should be able to use analytics to decide whether

widely accepted best practices would work for your company or some innovations would

do better. Growth hacking needs marketers to look past the superficial numbers and take

the time to analyze those numbers.

8. Engage Influencers

To hack the growth of an organization, one needs to work with influencers while creating and

distributing new content. Q&As with influencers and curating insights from thought leaders

through blog posts, eBooks and other types of content are some of the ways to engage

influencers. You can also send influencers suggested tweets and ask them to share your

content at the same time.

Growth is the lifeblood of any business and hence growth hacking is the required

fresh oxygen. Growth marketing may not be redefining the goal of marketing, but it is

definitely changing the way of marketing. Currently, growth hacking is found in start-ups, but

it is eventually making its way to larger enterprises. If growth hacking can work in start-

ups without resources or established relationships, imagine what it can accomplish in

enterprises with resources.
