Growth Hacking Presentation Slides from my hour long Presentation:

Growth Hacking isn't taught in school.
It's learned by doing the work and from other growth hackers.

What is Growth Hacking?
Growth hacking is the art of modern savvy marketing using clever tools, optimized processes, and more data to get bigger; more measurable results from shorter processes.

Who should attend?
Anyone interested in getting better at marketing. Scaling any bootstraped startup can be challenging when you're starting at zero. With very few events directly geared towards pure marketing strategy and growth, with learning in mind.

It's time to give the Copenhagen Startup scene some value.

Editor's Notes

  • http://jointhehunt.co

    Tickets are €149 or 1.112 DKK
  • I want to help. I do this because I actually dig this shit.

    Ask questions. It’s okay to interrupt unless you become “that guy.”

    No such thing as a stupid question – except the one you ask 5 times
  • Raise of hands if you’re:

    Still in school?

    Currently working in marketing?

    Entrepenuers?

    Trying to find out if you want to go into marketing?
  • Branding + strategy hate this phrase:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hacking
  • Branding + strategy hate this phrase:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hacking
  • When you understand one part, it helps you to understand others

    Marketing is understanding systems

  • Discovery is easier
    Boosts awareness of your business -> number of customers
    Legitimizes your business and your expertise


    Adds new channels for your business to pull in customers

    Conveys the right info to those that might purchase in the future

    100+ Types of content:
    http://www.convinceandconvert.com/content-marketing/content-to-fill-calendar/
    https://coschedule.com/blog/types-of-content/

  • Why behind the why? – What’s the point?
    Discovery
    Awareness
    Legitimizes your business and your expertise

    Benefits of good content:
    Referral Traffic
    Backlinks + Linking domains
    Keywords+
    Higher DR rating = more likely to show up in SERP
    Social Media and Reach
    Branding

    GOAL is to drive sales/leads
  • Social Currency:
    We share stuff to sound cool and smart

    Triggers:
    Things that give us a kneejerk reaction + stuff that’s relevant to us + stuff that we think about often and might realize it

    Emotion:
    Sad / happy (motivational) – this shit sells

    Public:
    Something we all share and know – think Copenhagen + biking

    Practical value: Something you can use Stories: Narratives


    The best content: -Amuses / Entertains
    -Teaches / Educates
    -Answers questions / Solves a problem
    -Gets a reaction
    -VALUE

    Here’s an example of what most startups do. This doesn’t work:
    One more thing on this topic: we constantly see startups struggle with the question of whether they should post “internal startup stuff” or “content for the audience.” In our case: “Should we post a photo of the last pitch event that we presented at to keep our audience “up-to-date”?” - The answer is: “No, our audience doesn’t care. They are all travelers: all they want to see is travel hacks and inspiring quotes. They aren’t entrepreneurs.” Post that photo from your pitch event on your personal profile, not on your startup page.
  • Content must appeal most to our buyer personas:
    Ask yourself + potential customers:
    Who will buy your product or service?
    What are their pain points?
    What are the most common questions you get?
    What are the industry secrets?
    What do people in your own industry struggle with understanding?
    What other topics do people in your industry find interesting?
  • You will not find every customer at the spark moment:
    Spark: “I need to find XXXX software”
    -Diverse content
    -Hitting different perspectives
    -Providing Value
    Blog articles should not be entirely be top of funnel:
    -Case Studies + Interviews
    -Buyer Guides
    -Future Predictions
    -Templates

    “Oh but, how do Likes and Followers even matter”
    We keep hearing people hate on us for selling them followers. And we keep telling them: of course, it’s not about having 15,000 likes on your facebook page. They need to be relevant and engaged. Yes, sometimes a community of 2,000 engaged followers will be more valuable than



    Facebook is good at dialogue and sales
    Visible contact info and opening hours are important
    Prioritize surveillance and response to customer inquiries
    --- From the checklist guide: ---
    Facebook
    What is Facebook?
    On Facebook, you can communicate as a business via your own wall or respond to someone else's review of your business or product on other pages. By creating content that is fun, enlightening or creating a different value for users, you can try to get others to share the content you provide.
    Why is it important?
    On the profile wall, you as a company can pinpoint the direction of communication, but generally you should be aware that communication on social media is on the user's premises. Therefore, it is also a good idea to follow the review of your business through tools such as Mention or Hootsuite.
    What should I be aware of?
    Have visible contact information and opening hours.
    Fill out information about the company's goals and vision - it creates credibility.
    Make a plan for production and publishing of content.
    Prioritize monitoring of social media so that customer inquiries are answered. It is important to answer all customer requests and with a quick response.
    Make a strategy for how to react if communication on social media takes a negative turn.
    Do not as a business to contact private users on their wall. It can be perceived as cross-border.
    How do I get on?
    If it makes sense for your business, then create a business profile and fill in all relevant information, such as contact info, opening hours and goals / vision.
    Checklist questions
    Does your business have a purpose of being on Facebook?

  • Boosting posts:
    1st day: boost the post to your own audience = “warm audience”
    2nd day: boost post to people who like your page and their friends = “warm audience”
    3rd day: boost post to people you choose through targeting = “cold audience”

    Only boost your best content: After a couple months of seeing what is “high engagement” you should know when something is preforming well and what your audience likes.
