See. I have a very fundamental view of this and why is why I don’t use a lot of ‘grow your traffic by 10X’ tools or tactics.
Growth is of no meaning, when it doesn’t tie to monetizability of growth. To me, it’s a lot about reaching out to users with a valid proposition.
Tools help, but those who are dependent on tools eventually become slave to these tools. I am hiring digital marketing head for ProductGeeks and my only question to people there is :
What would you do if you have ZERO marketing budget? (FYI: his/her salary is my budget).
And so far, no success
Basics of building a business never changes - the ones who are always growth hacking are just looking for cheap thrills.
