I prefer the discipline of knowledge to the anarchy of ignorance. We pursue knowledge the way a pig pursues truffles.

—DAVID OGILVY

AN INTRODUCTION TO GROWTH HACKING

Nearly two years ago now, on what seemed like a normal day, I got in my car to leave my house, assuming it would be no different from any other workday. I had read the morning news, dealt with a few important employee issues over the phone, and confirmed lunch and drinks meetings for later in the day. I headed to the athletic club—a swanky, century-old private gym favored by downtown executives—and swam and ran and then sat in the steam room to think.

As I entered the office around ten, I nodded to my assistant and sat down at a big desk and reviewed all the papers that required my signature. There were ad designs to approve, invoices to process, events to sponsor, proposals to review. A new product was launching, and I had a press release to write. A stack of magazines had arrived—I handed them to an employee to catalog and organize for the press library.

My job: director of marketing at American Apparel. I had a half dozen employees working under me in my office. Right across the hall from us, thousands of sewing machines were humming away, manned by the world’s most efficient garment workers. A few doors down was a photo studio where the very ads I would be placing were made.

Excepting the help of a few pieces of technology, like my computer and smartphone, my day had begun and would proceed exactly as it had for every other marketing executive for the last seventy-five years. Buy advertisements, plan events, pitch reporters, design “creatives,” approve promotions, and throw around terms like “brand,” “CPM,” “awareness,” “earned media,” “top of mind,” “added value,” and “share of voice.” That was the job; that’s always been the job.

I’m not saying I’m Don Draper or Edward Bernays or anything, but the three of us could probably have swapped offices and routines with only a few adjustments. And I, along with everyone else in the business, found that to be pretty damn cool.

But that seemingly ordinary day was disrupted by an article. The headline stood out clearly amid the online noise, as though it had been lobbed directly at me: “Growth Hacker Is the New VP [of] Marketing.”

What?

I was a VP of marketing. I quite liked my job. I was good at it, too. Self-taught, self-made, I was, at twenty-five, helping to lead the efforts of a publicly traded company with 250 stores in twenty countries and more than $600 million in revenue.

But the writer, Andrew Chen, an influential technologist and entrepreneur, didn’t care about any of that. According to him, my colleagues and I would soon be out of a job—someone was waiting in the wings to replace us.

The new job title of “Growth Hacker” is integrating itself into Silicon Valley’s culture, emphasizing that coding and technical chops are now an essential part of being a great marketer. Growth hackers are a hybrid of marketer and coder, one who looks at the traditional question of “How do I get customers for my product?” and answers with A/B tests, landing pages, viral factor, email deliverability, and Open Graph. . . .

The entire marketing team is being disrupted. Rather than a VP of Marketing with a bunch of non-technical marketers reporting to them, instead growth hackers are engineers leading teams of engineers.1

What the hell is a growth hacker? I thought. How could an engineer ever do my job?

But then I added up the combined valuation of the few companies Chen mentioned as case studies—companies that had barely existed a few years ago.


   • Dropbox
   • Zynga
   • Groupon
   • Instagram
   • Pinterest

Now worth billions and billions of dollars.

As Micah Baldwin, founder of Graphicly and a start-up mentor at Techstars and 500 Startups, explains, “In the absence of big budgets, start-ups learned how to hack the system to build their companies.”2 Their hacking—which occurred right on my watch—had rethought marketing from the ground up, with none of the baggage or old assumptions. And now, their shortcuts, innovations, and backdoor solutions fly in the face of everything we’ve been taught.

We all want to do more with less. For marketers and entrepreneurs, that paradox is practically our job description. Well, in this book, we’re going to look at how growth hackers have helped companies like Dropbox, Mailbox, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Snapchat, Evernote, Instagram, Mint.com, AppSumo, and StumbleUpon do so much with essentially nothing.

What stunned me most about those companies was that none of them were built with any of the skills that traditional marketers like myself had always considered special, and most were built without the resources I’d long considered essential. I couldn’t name the “marketer”—and definitely not the agency—responsible for their success because there wasn’t one. Growth hacking had made “marketing” irrelevant, or at the very least it had completely rewritten its best practices.

Whether you’re currently a marketing executive or a college grad about to enter the field—the first growth hackers have pioneered a new way. Some of their strategies are incredibly technical and complex. The strategies also change constantly; in fact, occasionally it might work only one time. This book is short because it sticks with the timeless parts. I also won’t weigh you down with heavy concepts like “cohort analysis” and “viral coefficients.”* Instead, we will focus on the mindset—it’s far and away the most important part.

I start and end with my own experiences in this book, not because I am anyone special but because I think they illustrate a microcosm of the industry itself. The old way—where product development and marketing were two distinct and separate processes—has been replaced. We all find ourselves in the same position: needing to do more with less and finding, increasingly, that the old strategies no longer generate results.

So in this book, I am going to take you through a new cycle, a much more fluid and iterative process. A growth hacker doesn’t see marketing as something one does but rather as something one builds into the product itself. The product is then kick-started, shared, and optimized (with these steps repeated multiple times) on its way to massive and rapid growth. The chapters of this book follow that structure.

Ryan Holiday nous livre ici une superbe introduction au Growth Hacking!
Le livre est clair et concis, en donnant des exemples sans trop rentrer dans les détails et en expliquant les différences majeures avec l'approche traditionnelle.
Bien entendu, il ne faut pas s'attendre à tout connaître du growth Hacking grâce à ce livre.
Déjà, ce ne serait pas possible puisque comme Ryan l'explique si bien, c'est plus un état d'esprit qu'un ensemble de méthodes et d'outils. De plus, le livre n'a pas du tout cette pretention. C'est juste une bonne introduction. Et puis, pour le prix, vous ne pouvez pas vous tromper!
Pour ma part, sans l'avoir exprimé de manière formelle dans mon esprit, j'étais déjà un adepte du Growth Hacking!
C'est clairement l'évolution logique du marketing, au vue des outils aujourd'hui disponibles et des dérives qu'on connu la fonction depuis quelques temps.
Je compléterai mon commentaire avec un rapide résumé du livre, suite à une deuxième relecture.

I read this book in one sitting. I really enjoyed the content even though I was already familiar with most of the concepts.
It was a good refresher and seeing how pro "old school" marketers are still trying to figure it all out was reassuring in many ways.
The book was packed with insights in the minds of great modern marketers and entrepreneurs and the bonus offered at the end is invaluable to me.
Very worth your time.

I recently decided to learn about growth hacking, not only because everyone is talking about it, but because the few articles I read about this triggered my curiosity. On my boss’ advice I got into Ryan Holiday‘s book on this particular topic: « Growth Hacker Marketing ».

I am always very skeptical when I hear about any new so-called « revolutionary » marketing concepts. Like a lot of « big keywords », growth marketing is the opportunity for a lot of people to make big money out of a new concept. Since this phenomenon has become famous I can’t count the number of new « growth hackers for start-ups » Twitter profiles. My objective when I started to read Growth Hacker Marketing: A Primer on the Future of PR, Marketing, and Advertising was to answer three questions:

What is Growth Marketing?
- Did the people who invented growth marketing reinvent the wheel?
- How can I apply this concept to my day-to-day BtoB Web & Digital Manager job?
- What is growth hacking?

In the book a growth hacker is defined as “someone who has thrown out the playbook of traditional marketing and replaced it with only what is testable, trackable, and scalable (…)”. Very vague I agree. What I will remember from the book:

- Growth hacking is a real mindset which main goal is to massively acquire new users in a short amount of time,
- Growth hacking is very much metric and ROI driven, and focuses on « customer acquisition » over « awareness »,
- Initially, growth hacking was invented by engineers/programmers who happened to get into marketing without the traditional marketing knowledge and mindset, but very attracted by the perspective of driving and improving marketing conversion.

Un petit livre stimulant pour réfléchir a son activité, à son environnement professionnel et à ses projets. Manque une partie sur la mise en oeuvre, ou des exemples plus détaillés, mais les liens a la fin du texte renvoient vers des ressources plus concrètes. .

Very nice introduction to growth hacking. I would have loved to read more stuff about tools and techniques, but there's a lot of links in the end of the book for that. Congrats
