Growth Hacking

A brief introduction

Example project

Timeline and overview of your possible growth journey

What is Growth hacking?

Growth Hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across the full marketing funnel to identify the most effective way to grow a business.


Full funnel focus







Where traditional marketing is primarily

focussed on awareness & acquisition, 

growth hacking uses a full funnel approach

Where's your focus?

What is your customer lifetime value?

How many experiments are you running on a weekly basis?

Are you doing traditional marketing or

growth hacking? Let's have a look shall we?

"Our succes at Amazon is a function of how many experiments we do per year, per month, per week, per day."

What is your churn rate?

This is what a typical project could look like

General process

Phase 1

Phase 2

Phase 3

Phase 1 - Growth audit

A project typically starts with an audit to get a baseline measurement of all current activities.


The audit will be delivered in one document and will be based on current performance including the following:

  • Tracking & measurement
  • Competitor analysis
  • SEO
  • PPC (social & search)
  • Email
  • UX



  • Set up of social and search advertising channels.
  • Planning and implementing the right tracking.
  • Set up of external tooling or automation software.


Phase 2 - Infrastructure

We have to be certain about completion of tooling access, data points and measurements before we start growth hacking


Infrastructure activities will be executed before or simultaneously during sprint 1 and can include:


Phase 3 - Growth hacking

We look for the most effective and efficient ways in each funnel phase to grow your organization. Working in sprints allows us to experiment and scale up successes at lightning speed for maximum impact.


We translate your company vision and goals back into quarterly goals, into sprint goals, and into daily activities so that the work we are engaged in today.

Sprint process = 1 month

1. Ideation

2. Ranking experiments

3. Execute tests

4. Analyze results

5. Scale success

We walk through the PIRATE (AAARRR) funnel & growth audit data, leveraging multiple brainstorm technique we come up with ideas amongst all 19 traction channels

Hypotheses are made and experiments are scored based on their impact on growth, our confidence that it will be successful, and how easy it is to implement (ICE model). 

Rapid testing of channels & features. Manage the tempo & workload within the sprint, execute experiments with care and focus on throughput and small batch sizes.

Get and analyze the data of the experiments. Capture learnings, “did it work yes or no”? Why not? Should we run another experiment? Store the knowledge. 

Channels that work, scale! The intelligence can be used to make strategic decision how to further grow you business.

The following slides will present some of

the sprints we've worked on in the past.
