Growth Hacking: Why Even Your Business Needs A Blog

Posted by Christina Clemens

5/21/15 1:06 PM


As a business owner, you might be scratching your head when you see your competitors starting blogs on their websites. First of all, who has the time? And, depending on the industry, you might even wonder what they could possibly write about. Why might a construction company, for example, spend time writing bi-weekly posts - shouldn’t they spend their time remodeling kitchens instead? 

Blogging is a growth hacking technique that any business can use to increase traffic, convert leads, and close customers. Even if your business is strictly local, you can access hundreds, if not thousands, more customers online than you ever could through traditional marketing methods (unless you have the budget to buy a SuperBowl ad). To get these potential customers to notice you online, you have to make it onto the first Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) for your business’ keywords.  After that, it's essential to write about blog topics that your readers and target buyer persona will find engaging.

Growth Hacking: The ModCloth Model

If you study e-commerce growth like we do, you can’t ignore ModCloth – they do everything right. Starting out in the Carnegie Mellon dorm room of founder Susan Koger, this vintage clothing business grew from collecting thrift store finds to a 100-million-dollar online business. If you’re wondering how Susan and her husband Eric did it – you’re not alone! 

Most of their growth hacking techniques are related to principles around inbound marketing. Inbound marketing refers to the efforts of producing quality content and using methods that attract prospective customers to a company or product versus outwardly approaching them. On the contrary to traditional marketing efforts, inbound focuses on aligning your content with customer’s needs and interests. (Click to Tweet!)

Posted by Lauren Van Mullem

Fear of Abandonment: The irrational belief that one is in imminent danger of being personally rejected, discarded, or replaced.

At least for Ecommerce sites, this isn’t an “irrational belief” at all – you see it every day: Cart abandonment. Most online retailers experience high rates of cart abandonment and can’t understand why. “Why do you want to leave me?!” they plead, sounding a lot like the ex-boyfriend I had in college.

In fact, much like that ex-boyfriend, most retailers send you notes as if you didn’t leave, you just forgot about them. For a really long time. Is this effective? Well, as my ex-boyfriend could tell you, not one bit.

So what is? How do you woo your cart abandoner back to finalize their purchase?

What is “Growth Hacking”?

Posted by Derek Clark

12/28/13 3:48 PM

“Growth hacking”. Sounds a little strange and probably doesn’t mean anything unless it’s used in context. “Hacking”, after all, is widely perceived as something destructive or subversive. Here, however, the emphasis is on the creative connotation of the word, where the path to the solution requires shortcuts, and shortcuts require a comprehensive understanding of each piece involved.

“Growth Hacking” is a phrase that started spreading around Silicon Valley in 2011, used to describe the creative usage of technical knowledge to develop and implement marketing strategies.
