Everyone’s talking about Growth Hacking. 2013 looks set to be the year that the term will enter the common language of start-ups, Innovation teams and the general technocrati. Silicon Valley is bursting with growth hacking stories and Craigslist is overflowing with job adverts for this new discipline.
Growth hackers are a hybrid of marketer and coder, one who looks at the traditional question of “How do I get customers for my product?” and answers with A/B tests, landing pages, viral factor, email deliverability, and Open Graph. Some of the most successful startups of all time have used growth hacking techniques to grow products up to millions, 10s of millions, and in some cases 100M+ users, including Facebook, Mint, Dropbox, Zynga, Twitter, Pinterest and Quora.
