Why Growth “Hacking”? • Startups tend to have limited resources so they need to be very creative to grow, acquire new users and retain them • • Traditional marketing channels are expensive and saturated • Growth Hackers don’t really care about “brand awareness” they care about ROI and finding out “what works” • It’s exciting and fun as hell!!
