Introduction to Growth Hacking, part 2 – TrueUp at Digital Growth Day


Published on

Digital Growth Day: September 18, 2014

What is growth hacking? Is it an alternative to marketing? Is it just about conversion rate optimisation? What about APIs? Is it completely legal? Is it only for coders? Is it a technique or state of mind?

In this session we'll explore why Growth Hacking has become one of the bigger buzz terms of 2013 and how a number of highly successful startups have used growth hacking techniques to achieve unprecedented levels of success.

We'll look at a variety of different growth hacks, tips and tricks that cleverly utilise data, technology and behavioural science across acquisition, conversion, retention, advocacy and the product.

This session will also teach you how create a structured framework that focus these techniques on the areas that will make the biggest difference to your business.
