Convincing people to buy stuff

has been around for a long time.

Growth opportunities arise constantly:

Classic strategies x New platforms x Smart execution
My challenge to you:
Study the classics.
(Don’t try to get clever with tips and tricks)
Approach platforms/channels systematically
Be early to new platforms when you can!
Execute thoughtfully and iteratively
Ignore quick growth hacks
Only trust ideas that 100+ years old :)
