Traditional Marketing vs Growth Marketing

How the Lean Startup Methodology aligns with Growth Marketing

Growth marketing was built around the principle of the lean startup methodology.
  • Define your goals
  • Define a hypothesis to reach that goal, for example, our customers care about X, so we are going to run an experiment to see if it is actually something that cares about
  • Run a series of experiments, for example, an experiment can be a messaging campaign, an explainer video, to see if they really do care about X as we assumed in our hypothesis.
  • Use the learnings from your experiment to build a better campaign.

What is Growth Hacking really about?

What types of campaigns are well suited for experimentation?

  • Does the experiment have an effect on the goal?
  • What is the right message, offer, or campaign?
  • How to tailor the right message to the right customer.
  • Email Marketing Campaigns
  • Facebook ad campaigns
  • Push Notifications
  • SEO campaigns etc

Where growth fits into T-shaped marketing formation

  1. Channel Level Expertise: how well you know your marketing channels like email marketing, Facebook ads, push notification, etc
  2. Analytics Capability: you need to be able to use tools like Excel and SQL to extract data to gather insights and to analyze your own experiments because data is the lifeblood of growth. You need to be able to get your hands on data, interpret it, and use it to make better decisions
  3. Strategic Thinking: This is the key component of becoming a leader in growth. You need to be skilled in strategic thinking and project management.

How to lay a strong foundation for your growth career
