Growth hacking is a term coined by Sean Ellis in 2010. It refers to a skill set somewhere in between marketer and engineer; someone capable of creatively envisioning ways to grow a business, but also with enough technical know-how to make it happen – or worst case, know what is possible and what is impossible and outsourcing the former.
So if a growth hacker is someone who can see opportunities and exploits them for growth purposes (leads, sales, revenue, etc.), then a good growth hack is a technique, method, or process for creating this growth.
The problem: a lot of growth hacks are confusing (either difficult to envision or seemingly impossible to develop without a degree in computer alchemy).
The solution: simple growth hacks that anyone can implement with minimal to no code, that can be replicated in under an hour, and that will dramatically multiply your return on investment.
The following is a list of the top 10 growth hacks (in no particular order) that will help you do just that.
