21 Awesome Growth Hacking Tools for Startup Marketers – THE List


21 Awesome Tips for Growth Hacking

There’s one thing that will determine whether a company will survive or die in its early stages; GROWTH. In the age of modern technology, new companies need to grow and grow really fast. If you’re an entrepreneur, founder, growth lead, or anyone else who is trying to grow a startup, growth hacking is crucial!

So what is a growth hacker? The term growth hacker was actually coined by Sean Ellis in a 2010 blog post. He explains, “A growth hacker is a person whose true north is growth. Everything they do is scrutinized by its potential impact on scalable growth.” In contrast to traditional marketers, growth hackers often focus on low-cost, alternative marketing techniques like social media, SEO, etc. to rapidly expand a business. Growth hacking requires a ton of testing across different marketing channels and product development in order to drive traffic and optimize conversion rates. Sounds simple, right?
