Learn the framework, step-by-step, that you can use to grow your company. Using this framework, our team acquired over a million customers at Involver.

I walk through the really simple framework I use when thinking about growth. It's not brain-busting stuff, you'll pick up the concepts in 5 minutes -- the question is whether you'll be willing to do the hard/boring work of applying that framework to your schedule everyday.

Whether you call it by it's current buzzword, "growth hacking" (shudder) or it's old buzzword, "internet marketing" (just as bad), it all boils down to one thing: User Acquisition and Retention. This is a simple way to think about capturing and keeping someone's attention. If you want to grow, this is the best way I know how to do it.
