Be honest. Does it seem like your Inbound Marketing has flatlined?
Or maybe it never quite took off in the first place?
Well, there’s a solution and I’ve gotta say, it’s a pretty big deal these days.
They call it Growth Hacking and by incorporating it into your Inbound Marketing, you can gain more traffic, generate more leads, and close more sales and all faster than ever before.
Before we dive into the tactics, let’s take a look at what sets these two Marketing philosophies apart — and why they work so well together.
It makes sense at times to produce content without worrying too much about the SEO aspects. (Please know it isn’t easy for me, an SEO professional, to write that.)
Some SEO purists suggest that website content be optimized at all times. It’s inevitable that someone – or a team – will follow an internal process and think about the content with an everything-SEO mentality.
But there are situations when you don’t need to sweat SEO – or can at least scale back the effort. Here are five occasions to consider.

Are you going to launch a startup? Do you want to grow it tremendously quick?
Hell yes you say? Well in that case you require an army of growth hacking strategies to achieve your goal. After all, they’re the data-driven experiments, followed by countless others before you, which you must take in order to help yourself create credible results. Once you use them, and test them, you will begin to realize that they aren’t like those typical rules which are followed by the traditional founders or marketers; they are, in fact, award-winning strategies that open the floodgates of success in your business.
On one hand, “growth hacking” is quite an overused buzz word which personally makes me cringe, on the other one it well communicates the essence of experimental online marketing techniques adopted by startups and small businesses so as to extend their user base fast and cheap.
Big enterprises with copious budgets can usually afford to pour tens of thousands of dollars into traditional (e.g. print, TV, radio) and digital (e.g. search engine advertising, web banners, mobile advertising) marketing channels. Starting entrepreneurs, by contrast, truly need to think out of the box in order to assert their position on the market — by conjuring up a steep growth curve on a shoe-string budget.
Some of the popular methods include lots of A/B testing and website data analytics to increase conversion rates, producing viral content to master social media, and extensive blogging to improve brand image and gain credibility. It may take weeks of tweaking and playing around with different approaches but the result usually pays off. Sounds like too much work, you say? Luckily, there are quite a few web and mobile tools that were developed specifically for businesses that depend on smart and low-cost marketing.
Check this unique list of handy apps that can help you multiply your website’s visitor or paying customer count without bleeding too much cash.
