Iíve noticed a large percentage of the companies I consult with are terrified by the term growth hacking, so I wanted to break the process down into four simple steps. Some examples: Increasing your unique monthly website visitors from 20,000 to 30,000 over the next 30 days. The majority of your goals from the first step will involve numbers, as demonstrated in the examples above. You could be great at mapping out micro goals and analyzing data, but if your conversion funnel isnít creative, you wonít get off the ground.

Knowing your target market will play a huge role in whether or not you are able to put together a creative funnel that converts. Convert a high percentage of your visitors by using landing pages that are optimized to generate email leads. Use re-marketing and email marketing to pull your leads back to your website in an attempt to convert them into revenue.
