This course is a must for you. You can't afford to miss it. So go ahead and grab it. I can't wait to see you inside the course. 2. Learning method: Hey, first of all, thanks for enjoying into this course. Here's a quick dip on how to learn from this course. Our brains absorb things pretty fast when it happens to see things for the second time or third time. I mean, repetition is the mother of skill. It's an old saying, but it's very true. There are lessons in this court that requires you to absorb the fundamental concepts, and there are other lessons that requires you to work hands on, get your hands dirty and implement what you learn. So I strongly suggest you do this. You watch first, and you study next. Step one. Just watch all the lessons for once and understand everything from a bird's eye view. This will give you a holistic picture off what the subject matter is all about, how things work and what are all the tools you need and so on. So this is your watching time. Finish watching all the lessons in one sitting step to start from the beginning again and go through those lessons this time with full attention. You'll be in a study more. You'll see your absorption capacity is that it's speak because you know what to expect. You know what you'll see next you also implement by watching the step by step victorious. Believe me, it's were there. This is how I learned, and my absorption capacity multiplies when I learned the second time. Try this and you'll be amazed by the results and to increase their attention, go through the lessons as many times as possible. And that's how you nail those fundamentals into your brain. Okay, with that, let's get to the business now. 3. What is Growth Hacking: Hey will come back drunk. Hacking is a process off rapid experimentation. This means you conceive an idea, create a prototype tested several times really fast. If it's not good, kill it and move on to the next idea. Because not every hack is gonna work for everyone. And this has done a cross marketing channels and product development. This means there are many marketing hacks, especially in the digital marketing space. Also, there are many product development in technology hacks on. That's why engineers and product managers can also be good growth hackers. The purpose is to identify the most efficient ways to grow a business this has done to draw the business in the sharpest possible time and the least amount of cost. Technology plays a huge role and growth hacking, especially when you want to imply complex hacks like the ones used by growth hacking poster by Airbnb. If you don't know much about this, don't worry. I'll cover the strategy applied by Airbnb the later part of this course by plus a complex hack that acquired quarters and for grammars to implement the target audience of growth. Hackers are mainly startup companies. That's right, they are cash strapped. They need growth hackers the most. They need to drove that spending much on edge. But they're not the only ones that can use the hacks. Any smart, creative Moctar would keep testing a few hacks to know if they work. If yes, they scale it up. But how will use kill it up? Use technology and automation to do it that sustained the growth by understanding your best customers and find ways to acquire more of them. So growth hacking is a creative marketing using technology. It's about joy. The business has fast as possible by spending asked lit Less possible. Now, having seen the definition of drilled hacking, I want to show you an example off a powerful hack. This is about automating Lincoln marketing. As you may know, Lincoln contacts are professional because the community is highly business audie in it and will pay for your products. Now, a major problem people face on. Lincoln is not knowing how did target and connect with a relevant audience how to automate connecting with your second and third degree connections in bug with a personalized message and how to automate sending messages to your first degree connections in bulk are in general how to automate Lincoln marketing. It's possible with just one automation toe, it's called linked helper. Just go ahead and install the chrome extension, then go to Lincoln. You'll see the linked helper window. Let's say I want to connect with all my second and third degree connections who are growth hackers. So I'll click on collect. I want to collect from General Lincoln Search Page. I choose a filter and enter the keyword growth hacker here. Now click on collect. Now, as you can see, the do has started collecting details. It'll move from one page after the other and collect all the details listed out here. I lived for some time to collect the details while I work on some of my other tasks in other tabs. After some time when I checked, it's collected all that he did. You can see the collector number of contacts year now let me draft a personalized message. Here I can include some links. Also, if I want, then I'll save the template for future use. Now I'll click on invite. Then I click on start profile in Whiting. Now sit back and watch the automation effect. The do will start sending your message automatically toe all the collector contacts, not sending bulk messages to your first degree. Contact works in the same way. Click on collect Goto all my connection speech. Click on collect. Now the duel will start collecting message recipients. Once done, create a personalized message, then click on broadcast, then start message broadcast in the same way the do will send about personalized messages to group members. Also, just try this out and let me know your comments. So this is just a sample off several grow tax. You're gonna learn in this course, But you understand the fundamentals first, before I take you through other hacks, I'll see you in my next video to continue withdraw attacking for minerals. 4. Growth Hacking vs Digital marketing: Hey will come back. I know a lot of people get confused on this. Are these two terms the growth hacking and digital marketing? Both refer to the same thing. I mean same wine and do different bottles. The answer to Snow, The main focus of digital marketing is customer acquisition, retention and branding. Using digital technology, digital marketing is applied toe all types of businesses, including mature ones for continuous grounding and lead generation and customer attention. On the other hand, the main focus of growth hacking is job It could come from anyways, including digital marketing techniques. Digital marketing plays a major role in hacking growth. Apart from digital marketing growth, hackers use various other ways, including product design, user experience, psychology, engineering, statistics analytics and want to grow the business real fast growth hacking as a function is very flexible and very adaptive, and it could take and put from any of the about disciplines tohave the growth of a business and growth. Hacking is mainly applied to start up businesses, but you grow really fast in the initial stages off their life cycle, 5. Types of Hacks: Hey, welcome back. There are mainly two types of hacks marketing with technology and product driven. But the line that separates the do is blurring out. They've actually become one called growth hacking. Some hacks are quite difficult to implement. You may do it only with help off a developer. Air B and B's Craigslist Integration is a classic example off such a hack. In the initial stages of gold, Airbnb reverse engineered and created a system their customers can directly post on Airbnb and Craig List. At the same time, they just visit Airbnb site and filling the farm for rentals. This was done using a loophole in the Craigslist system. They're on Craigslist, found us and plugged in the loophole. But by this time, Airbnb managed to build a considerable customer base. This is how Airbnb hack to the drove off its business in the initial stages. It's an example of a complex engineering hack, but some hacks are moderately difficult. It takes time, and if we're to implement them, and some are quite easy. If you have a basic set up like a website and email our social handles, you can do it. Experts reveal that majority of startups failed because they focused too much on cool products and ignore marketing and distribution. The real challenge, however, lies in marketing. So in this course I'm gonna cover a large number off marketing hacks and a few product a bit of a hacks to get the best of both wash. 6. Product Development Principles: Hey, welcome back. It's common sense that toe built a great company. You need great products. But many people think that throwing out some money into marketing and PR will sell products . But the product is in good all the storytelling and all the partnerships in the world, the only end and waste of time and money. David Ogilvy, the great Copywriter one, said Drink marketing will only make a bad product fail faster. We don't read much about product failures as we prefer to celebrate successes. There are countless failed startups, which actually never get the product right. In other cases that are large number of standard by mediacom products competing for the same set of customers, they end up asked massive flops. Despite the marketing firepower behind them, even massive carpets have become victims here. Think about what happened. A new coat and what happened to the Newton apple, its first personal digital assistant. Building great products is difficult. Many believe that because they use the products and have an opinion about them, they can also design in building. But great product builders and managers are wrapped to see. To make matters worse, there's no formal training to become what the best product people have learned this through trial and enter. They have years of experience. They're passionate about design, obsessed with using experience and always on trouble. Latest tools and technologies. There's no hard and fast rule here on how to build a great product, however, that our principles one should follow questions one must ask and tools one can use. I'm gonna give you nine off the most important principles that you can take and apply when building yar products. They are meant to provide a condensed and framework in the long journey and acquired a build a great product, I think, on these lines before getting to the marketing part. These principles may seem quite obvious, but you'll be surprised. Many startups fail to validate their offers against these principles, which are pure common sense. But surprisingly, common sense is so uncommon, and that's why 90% of the starters fail, but they don't comply with any. Are all of these principles any kind of marketing and growth hacking efforts that only go in vain and that why we'll cover these product development principles first, before we move on to the growth hacking park, you may be a product developer. Arias service provider. These principles will work for any off your products are service. These are generic, but quite important to understand. So let's get started. Principle number one. I would always focus on getting the right product of the market. First, I start with what the market watch. Once I do it right, I can start thinking about getting my product right in Shark. I'll primarily focused on getting the right product of the market first as quickly as possible. The Iran. I'll focus on getting the product right by fixing what needs to be fixed within that principle. Number two. I'll start with the available data to determine if the product will fly in the market. I can give this data from competitors in my niche are directly from my customers. I may combine the ABA with my intuition to make decisions about choosing a product, but that's not the end. If it I would expose the product of the customers even at the design stage. This will help me know their desires, tastes and preferences. This will help me to redesign the product in line with the market requirement principle. Number three I would understand my products unique selling proposition, our USB from the beginning. For example, when I released my product, I would ask myself these questions. How is this product different from what are very exists in the market? What are the are tentative products in the market? How big is the opportunity for this product in each market is the timing of the product. Release the right one. So go ahead and ask yourself these questions for your product, our service principal on before. Always ask. Don't assume I would ask my customers, should this product be created a doll. There are a multitude of reasons why someone would choose not to buy the product. So the best solution is to ask. Ask about the likes and dislikes. Ask what are the minimum required features and benefits that will make your customers to fight anyway? Is it the right time to buy the product? Call them awesome questions about their habits in needs. Observe them using your competitors products at various stages of development. This takes time, but it's extremely valuable as you design your products. Principle. Number five. My initial goal would be to build a minimum viable product, R M V P. That is good enough to put in front of my customers. I must then iterated based on testing measurements and learnings. This will normally lower the cost, but also a quicker way to burn the right product, making small, measurable changes, testing them quickly and refining the product accordingly, as much more effective than making big changes that are more time consuming and more challenging. Principle number six. Why designing the product? Keep in mind that it must be simplistic and easy to use. It's a virtue off any successful product. Take the example of Google. If you go to Google's home page, the only thing you can see there is a search engine. How easy it is. If you go to apple dot com, you see a big crystal clear image on the home page with a call to action and big, bold letters. How easy it is to understand right Principle Number seven. Build a brand. Don't ever listen to the ad wise that will affect your brand image. Whoever say's it. The success off a business is measured by its brand image, so don't ever compromise it for any other thing in your business principle Number eight. Be determined to run an organization that is product focused. I mean creating quality products. Once I know what my customers want, product quality and performance takes the centre stage. Everything else is secondary. I need the right people in the right rules. So I would take time to find these people, train them and design the right processes to be used. And finally, Principle number nine. My product should tell a clear, simple and compelling story. Those who have successful products are great story tellers. People engage with stories, not fit faction features. That's why great copywriters and advertisers don't great stories that helped tow, create and measurable impression in the minds of the viewers. Not sure how positive video and watch this ad. I've given the link in the description section of this video. Welcome back. Hope you watch that ad now. No, down the story line and the personalities no down the words used by the ad. No doubt the expression for facial and Weiss over no down the background music and the noise that use your creativity and make your own air for your product. Here's another funny one from depend and I doubt diaper company. You don't need a celebrity to create such an act, but you need some creative copyrighting skills. 7. Critical Mass Hacking: Hey, welcome back. Every startup has to go through a period when they have zero traffic or activity zero customers and hand zero sales, zero content, zero social proof and zero data for analysis. I mean, they are starting from the scratch. This is the most vulnerable period for any start up. And you know what? If they don't do something at this stage that kickstart the growth quickly, let RGE section and many start up owners quick at this stage in this video, let's see what some of the successful companies did at this stage when they were a startup . It's kind of a chicken and egg situation for many startups, especially when they are a platform where they connect to our more parties. For example, in sites like you do are you enemy in orderto have content, which is created by content creators, our instructors, you need them on board to have them registered. You need site. Visitors are students first. Otherwise there's no credibility and hence creators a lot publish content in there again. In orderto have students, you need content. Otherwise, why would a stolen join a platform which has no content? So if there is no contact, no safe. And if there's no sales, there's no conduct. Likewise, here's another situation is there are no sales that are no social proof. And if there are no social proof, that will be no sales. So it's a vicious circle. Now let's see how some of these successful companies broke the chain off this vicious circle. Some of these techniques may seem to be unethical, are immoral, but in the absence of them, these companies would not have existed. Now these are like strategies to keep the head of bother water on. Don't you gain your critical mosque once you reach that stage draw. It would be much quicker because you can build on what you already have. But in the very beginning, you'll most probably have nothing to build on on that ran. These strategies will help. So let's see the strategies. Now we'll see companies that gained the initial customer base using a drone attack called piggybacking on underlying network PayPal piggybacked on underlying even network people was founded in 1998 managed to gain a remarkable degree attraction by manufacturing its own popularity on eBay when it figured eBay as a wider distribution platform even created a bar that purchased goods on the auction site, using only PayPal as a payment method. Seeing the increased popularity up PayPal for payment, even centers began offering it so they didn't miss out on sales. Not only did this make PayPal seem more popular than it waas, it got sellers to actually use the service, helping them realise it really was a more convenient payment method. Likewise, Airbnb used Craigslist audience and underlying network to get initial traction. In fact, they poached from a computer. This can be an ongoing activity and can be applied by any online business, not necessarily startups at the very beginning. So I have covered the strategy in detail elsewhere in the scores under the hack name Customers of competitors. So stay tuned to learn more on this. Facebook initially started with a student network and Harvard and expanded late Rondo other schools before it became a platform for public. So these companies used the existing that work the game their initial customers. In the case of you do, they silently violated some of its early content late Ron. Then there were more traffic and content creators there no need to continue this practice. Likewise, UNA Me published some of the public domain content to get traffic in the initial stages. They stopped doing this practice once they have registered instructors supplying regular contact. Here's another example. Cora dot com a Cuny side. It acquires two parties to function, those who ask questions and those who answer them. In the initial stages, their site traffic was zero, and hence no questions are answers. The start up had some endurance, and they posted some of their own questions and answers. This kickstarted the activity, and hence the traffic, the traffic asunder in more questions and answers. So these are some of the hacks used by these well known companies to gain a critical mosque in the initial stages. So let's see the steps now. Step one for initial customers. See if you can piggyback on an underlying our existing network. Strict number two for initial Carter. See if you can created by yourself, are already existing content elsewhere. This is to be done without breaking any last, including copyrights 8. Email Signature: Hey, you will come back. Your email goes straight to your diet. Audiences in box How about optimizing it with an awesome professional signature with links back to your website and social handles. This will help you to get regular traffic from your email contacts and build brand of Venice to them. So let's goto settings page off the email service provider if you don't know how to do it.

Here you go. This is how my signature looks like in my Gmail. My picture name designation. You can include address and phone number if you want. Then a call interaction with a link back to my website, then links to social media channels and I also included a USB are unique selling proposition. That's it. Now let me show you step by step.

Go to the settings page off er email service provider Step number two Create a signature that your name your company name and USB put an image to personalize the experience.

I'll make the designation italics and go toe. Insert image and photos. Insert all your social icons here. Now open your social media profile pages and grab the links. I have them readily available for me, so let me just insert them, click on the icon and then click insert link I can't hear based in the profile link and click Apply. That's it.

Go to barter, vit and select zero pixels. Now I want only a divider line that separates the picture from my text. So let me choose the entire area again and click to select barters and choose the divider option. Now I'll go to the bottom it again in shoes, 1.5 pixels with That's it.

When you start doing this, they also start following you. So if you follow more people, you have more people following you. No. Open your personal profile page in critter account and include Yar website Yorn. There you go.

Hashtag makes your posts easily searchable and findable but don't include too many of them . It looks Pammy. So it just used one or do hash tax in the post. This applies to a social media channels like Twitter and Facebook. Oh, that is a cool dip for Instagram. The best way to pulls the hashtag and Instagram is to post it as a first comment, not lineal caption. For example, take a look at this post from Instagram after posting the picture, a common disposed her. Then, after a few dodge, the Hashtags are poster. By doing this way, you'll be able to effectively hide all these hashtag so that you don't appear to be due spammy. And at the same time, Instagram considers all these hashtags for searching purposes, Right? Dag dot com is a site that can have you know, some of the popular dags. Let's say you're running a restaurant. You can go to the site, enter the word restaurant, find some popular hashtag and start using them on your treat.
