Face it. Launching your first company is intimidating. You created an amazing product or service and now you want to get your first customers without spending a lot of money.
This is where Growth Hacking comes into play.
According to wikipedia “Growth hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing channels and product development to identify the most effective, efficient ways to grow a business”
It takes a lot of trial an error to figure out the best ways to become a growth hacker, but once you get the hang of it, it can push hundreds of thousands users to your site for free.
I have compiled a list of the top 4 growth hacking techniques that helped Flocksy become one of largest players in the graphic design and website maintenance fields.
- Write guest posts – Contact blogs that are in the same field as what your company offers and and ask to write a guest post. You will need to write about something that the blog readers will find useful and in return get to put a link to your site at the end of the article.
- Answer Questions – A great site to do this on is Quora. Follow topics that relate to what you offer and when you see a question you can answer, provide an amazing answer. Be careful not to mention your company much. Most time a simple link at the end of the answer is enough. If your answer is good enough, people will check to see what your site offers.
- Sponsored Posts – This can cost some money but has amazing value. Have a blog that is in the same field as your business write a review about your company. This may cost around $500 but you can see long term benefits from it.
- SEO – This is really important. You may not see results right away, but it builds a solid foundation for your company. The more backlinks that you build the higher it will get up in the search results. Make sure that you pick keywords that don’t already have a lot of competition. For us it was Unlimited Custom Graphic Design – which describes exactly what Flocksy offers.
Those are four of the top growth hacking techniques that you can use to get your first clients.
