  8. 8. So basically if you want to hire a GH, you are just looking for someone to cover the full spectrum of a startup. Inspector gadget x superman?
  9. 9. No job description You can’t tell what a growth hacker should be like.
  10. 10. A growth hacker is just someone who is obsessively focused on growth and only on growth* *if you think it’s like the CEO I would be worried about your your treasury
  11. 11. He should be either autonomous on most matters or/and someone who could use the core team skills to ensure the growth
  12. 12. What does the GH do
  13. 13. 1. Let’s go back to facebook Traction since it was hot. But they’ve spoted that to activating new user -> 7 mails PS: what’s your risk of spaming (especially in the early days?) + easier to activate with female
  14. 14. 2. Circle of friends – Discovered that moms on Circle of Friends were far more active than other users: • Their messages to one another were on average 50% longer. • They were 115% more likely to attach a picture to a post. • They were 110% more likely to engage in a threaded (i.e. deep) conversation. • They were 75% more likely to click on Facebook notifications. • They were 180% more likely to click on Facebook news feed items • They were 60% more likely to accept invitations to the app. – Pivoted entire company from Circle of Friends to Circle of Moms. – Grew from 2MM monthly active users to 4.5MM – Sold to Sugar Inc.

  17. 17. 4. Dropbox - acquisition Bonus : kick ass video full of MEMES (you have to understand the culture, remember)
  18. 18. 4. Dropbox - Referral PROBLEM: revenue = $99 CAC = $300 referal : free space for (Acquisition + Activation) -> – Users sent 2.8 million direct referral invites in April 2010. – In Sept. 2008 the service had 100,000 registered users. – In Jan 2010 (15 mos.) the service had 4,000,000.
  19. 19. 5. Twitter 30 follows
  20. 20. 6. Living social - Referral Insight: – Building an audience can be outside of the core product experience. – Giving away deals is cheaper than giving away cash. • Hack: – Building a purely viral Facebook app called Pick Your 5, and growing virally until pivoting to daily deals. – A new twist on refer-a-friend with the 3-and-free dynamic. •Result: – 10’s of millions of Facebook app installs – 70MM users as of 11/12

  22. 22. A. Analytics Deep dive vs spot check
  23. 23. A. Analytics Frameworks Funel : the simplest the more powerfull Get visitors -> activate members -> retain users Stay simple : core metrics + simplest framework possible (the math gets easy : XYZ) AARRR To focus on referal (cf viral loop) + revenue ($ matters at the end)
