  7. 7. Why Growth “Hacking”? • Startups tend to have limited resources so they need to be creative to grow, acquire new users and retain them • Traditional marketing channels are expensive and saturated • Most startups focus heavily on product but another real challenge is with distribution (Dave McClure) • Growth Hackers don’t really care about “brand awareness” they care about ROI - finding out “what works”

  83. 83. OMG so much to test!! Buy Now? Purchase? Checkout? Add to Cart? Change the call-to-action (CTA) text on your buttons to see which word or phrase converts more visitors. 1. Try varying the location of your CTA button, making some CTAs more prominent than others. 2. Test multiple CTAs per page against one CTA per page. 3. Try using hyperlinks instead of buttons to find out which display your users prefer. 4. Find out if CTAs with text, icons, or text + icons convert more users on your site. 5. Try stripping the content off of your entire page. Replace it with a “Click Here for Free Beer!” button. 6. Test different CTA hover states to make it more obvious that buttons are clickable and create a feel of interactivity on the page. 7. Test different colors, shapes, and sizes for CTA buttons on your website. 8. Test gated content against non-gated content. Find out if your users are willing to sign-up or provide more information to access materials on your site. 9. Do site visitors crave more information about your company before signing up or making a purchase? Test adding or removing “About” content on your homepage. 10. Test gated content against non-gated content. Find out if your users are willing to sign-up or provide more information to access materials on your site. 11. Do site visitors crave more information about your company before signing up or making a purchase? Test adding or removing “About” content on your homepage. 12. TL;DR. Find out if your site visitors prefer shorter versions of headlines, taglines, product descriptions, and other content on your site. 13. Test different headline text. Try variations that are straightforward against ones that are abstract, goofy, or creative. 14. Test paragraphs versus bulleted lists. 15. Test how you frame your copy. Users may have different reactions to positive versus negative messaging. 16. Test different types images on your landing page. People versus product is a good place to start. 17. Iterate from there. If your users prefer an image of people, test gender, age, number of people in the image, etc 18. And iterate some more! How about trying a static image vs. a product video vs. a 360* product image. 19. See how a stock image stacks up up against an image of your employees or customers in action. 20. Test auto-play versus click-to-play videos. 21. See how your product videos perform against this video of a sloth hugging a cat.

  92. 92. Be careful • There is no point in scaling if you have not reached product/market fit (Sean Ellis recommends 40% of users should be “very disappointed to lose your tool) • Some growth hacks are NOT sustainable so only apply to very early stages • The term “Growth Hacking” is used for everything and anything nowadays • It doesn’t really matter what you call it as long as it brings growth!
