What is Growth Hacking?
Growth Hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across the marketing funnel, product development, sales segments, and other areas of the business to pinpoint the most efficient ways to grow a business. The term was coined by Sean Ellis in 2010 and has since developed into a potent marketing discipline. You can learn more about how Hackabu uses this methodology to grow your business on our Growth Hacking Service Page.

This can be said for any technological advancement - we let the outcome speak for itself.
Which channels can one growth hack?
Is it trackable? It's hackable.
What's the difference between Growth Hacking and Growth Marketing?
Essentially they have the same goals, both are heavy on data-first approach and both are effective. We'd say the differences, if any, are slim. However, in general, it's perceived that growth hacking has less to do with brand & that growth hacking is focusing too much on technology. However, we have mixed the best of both sides within the team!
What is data-driven Marketing?
Data-driven Marketing is the foundation of growth hacking and optimization, it makes it possible to monitor performance on regular intervals. Data is collected to gain insights into preferences, user behaviours and habits of existing and potential new audiences to make necessary changes on various settings to - in the end - improve conversion rates, be it from a view to visits, from consideration to click, from traffic to actual purchase. Generally speaking data driven Marketing refers to marketing strategies which are derived from insights pulled from big data analysis collected through technological (GDPR compliant) enhancements on website and mobile smartphone apps.
What is Hackabu's Growth Hacking Framework?
At Hackabu we believe the best success can only be delivered with holistic approaches. We consider people, processes and technology through three phases: from analysis to planning to execution - rinse and repeat, learn and adapt.
How long does the Growth Hacking Process take? When can I expect results?
Typically we run experiments for at least 3 months, however, initial results may be present as early as 48 hours after kick-off - it all depends on your industry, seasonalities, traffic to your site/app as well as other subsequently supporting activities such as media-buys during test-phases.
How does Hackabu communicate with clients?
We stay in touch with you by phone, e-mail, video chat, in person, or however else you prefer. At the same time, we use agile working methods, so we combine traditional client contacts with communication on Slack, in Google Hangouts, and in project management applications such as Airtable.

What is a Growth Hacker?
A traditional marketer would usually follow the traditional marketing practices he's been led to believe in. He will need money, publicity, and commercials (not saying those are bad things, just that they are not enough).

A Growth Hacker, on the other hand, is someone who has thrown away all his/ her traditional marketing books and beliefs. Instead, the Growth Hacker has replaced all that with only what is trackable, testable and scalable!
