Use Growth Hacking to Enhance Your Inbound Marketing Strategy

February 6, 2017

Slow and steady

Inbound marketing is all about educating, enlightening and building relationships with your potential customers.

Using digital marketing activities such as search engine optimization (SEO), content marketing, social media marketing, paid advertising, PPC, and email marketing, we reach and convert leads into customers and then retain them.

While it’s an excellent practice for sustainability, inbound marketing can be a little too long-term for some of us…. enter: growth hacking.

Fast and furious

Growing a business is no easy feat. It requires a love of data, creativity, and curiosity – which are exactly the traits of growth hackers.

Think of growth hacking as a rocket launcher for your business – from increasing the speed of your website to integrating your product with the right platform. While growth hacking may approach customer conversion and retention from a different angle, it works hand in hand with your inbound marketing efforts to move your audience from one state to the next within the growth hack funnel:

  • Acquisition
  • Activation
  • Retention
  • Revenue

Ultimately, your inbound marketing is enhanced with the use of growth hacking; and is in no way disconnected.
