Frequently Asked Questions

What is Growth Hacking?

Growth hacking is a marketing technique developed by technology startups that uses creativity, analytical thinking, and social metrics to sell products and gain exposure. It can be seen as part of the online marketing ecosystem, as in many cases growth hackers employ techniques like search engine optimization, website analytics, content marketing and A/B testing, which are already mainstream. Growth hackers focus on innovative alternatives to traditional marketing, e.g. utilizing social media and viral marketing instead of buying advertising through more traditional media such as radio, newspaper, and television. Growth hacking is particularly important for startups, as it allows for a ‘lean’ launch that focuses on ‘growth first, budgets second.’ Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, AirBnB and Dropbox are all companies that use growth hacking techniques.


Can Growth Hacking be outsourced?
Definitely! Growth Hacking requires a deep understanding of a business and its nuances, which is why Growthority dedicates a single person to each client project, with the added benefit of a full team to back that person up.
