Their book, The Growth Hacking Book challenges the existing norms and is an almanac for growth in today’s hyper-competitive business world.
Dr. Unnat Pandit, Director NITI Aayog, “Indian entrepreneur ecosystem is growing and the government’s effort towards building this ecosystem has been positive. With large human resource and entrepreneur energy, we are seeing surge of Indians Start-ups going global which is a positive sign for the entire entrepreneur system.”
Curated by GrowthMedia.AI, this book features more than 35 marketing experts, trailblazing entrepreneurs, industry thought leaders and successful companies from all over the globe who share radical ideas on how you can grow your business using unconventional marketing strategies. Each chapter is a treasure trove of growth ideas that businesses in the “The Valley” try to shield from the public. It’s the first book of its kind on Growth Hacking by 35 National and International entrepreneurs, growth marketers, influencers, thought leaders and successful companies. The ground-breaking insights shared by the contributors of the book are revealing the secrets that fuel the growth of Silicon Valley start-ups.
Talking about the book, Authors, Parul Agarwal & Rohan Chaubey, “the Indian start-up ecosystem has till date taken a traditional approach towards funding, growth and marketing. We have observed that 90 percent of Indian start-ups fail within the first five years (IBM Institute for Business Value and Oxford Economics). Our growth framework and tactics are guaranteed to make start-ups have a longer run than what the report suggests. This is fail-proof as it is tried and tested in Silicon Valley; now we are bringing it to India.”
The book advises the start-ups to have a growth team irrespective of their team and revenue size. Growth Hacking is conducting marketing experiments to uncover creative strategies to acquire and retain customers/users using data. A growth hacker is someone that operates at the intersection of product, marketing, and technology to methodically acquire, activate and retain users/followers/clients.
Growth hacking is about optimization as well as lead generation. Imagine your business is a bucket and your leads are water. You do not want to pour water into a leaky bucket; it is a waste of money. That is why a true growth hacker would care about customer retention.
If you are into any business today then you are using techniques on ‘growth hacking’ directly or indirectly to grow your business.
