Growth is now the first thing that investors, shareholders and market analysts look for in assessing and valuing companies.
Hacking Growth is a highly accessible, practical, method for growth that involves cross-functional teams and continuous testing and iteration. Hacking Growth does for market share growth what the Lean Startup does for product development and Business Model Generation does for strategy. Hacking Growth focuses on customers – how to attain them, retain them, engage them and monetize them – rather than a product.
Written by the method’s pioneers, this book is a comprehensive toolkit or “bible” that any company in any industry can use to implement their own Growth Hacking strategy, from how to set up and run growth teams, to how to identify and test growth levers and how to evaluate and act on the results. It is designed for any company or leader looking to break out of the ruts of traditional marketing and become more collaborative, less wasteful and achieve more consistent, replicable and data-driven results.
In an increasingly erratic business landscape, where new competition can emerge overnight, customers’ loyalties can shift unexpectedly, and markets are constantly being disrupted, finding growth solutions fast is crucial for survival. Hacking Growth provides a compelling answer to this urgent need for speed, offering companies a methodology for finding and optimizing new strategies to increase their market share and quickly. — Eric Ries, bestselling author of THE LEAN STARTUP

But today’s companies can’t afford to be slowed down by organizational silos. Here, growth hacking pioneers Ellis and Brown show how to break down those traditional barriers and marry powerful data analysis, technical know-how, and marketing savvy to quickly devise and test ways to fuel breakout growth. ― Nir Eyal, bestselling author of HOOKED
