@engage_retain

@suddenlyfrugal we are too lol #cmworld

@CMIContent

A1. Observation: “Growth hacking” is jargon. Whatever it is meant to mean is overtaken by how “hipster” sounding it is. Bad #comms #cmworld

@jgombita

@SujanPatel thoughts? MT @jgombita A1. Observation: “Growth hacking” is jargon. #cmworld

@CMIContent

A1: I think that growth hacking is anything that helps you achieve your goals quicker, cheaper and better. #cmworld

@ideakid88

@jgombita I agree with you there. Growth hacking is just a fancy new term for a familiar concept. #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

a1 #CMWorld – This is a real good question… seeing different definitions!!

@T4Leonard

Q2: How do you decide which processes & systems will help with your growth? #CMWorld

I know #hacks from lifestyle perspective, have covered them (lawn hacks, holiday hacks, travel hacks, money hacks) but not content #cmworld

@suddenlyfrugal

I have to say I tend to agree… #CMWorld https://twitter.com/jgombita/status/666664491539648513

@MaelRoth

Did someone say growth hacking? Glad I was able to drop by! #cmworld

@danielerossi

A1:Strategically building a targeted community that’s part data and a tremendous amount of engagement. @CMIContent #cmworld

@JS_insidepitch

A2 I test first, measure & scale what works. I start by finding out the bottlenecks and problems. Then hypothesize solutions #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

You learn this. Experiment , rinse and repeat and you’re sure to come up with the right process #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

MT @jgombita: A1. Observation: “Growth hacking” is jargon. Whatever it is meant to mean is overtaken by how “hipster” .. Bad #comms #cmworld

@ega1

Best answer! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/jgombita/status/666664491539648513

@netvantage

Sounds like how I’ve approached blogging since 2007! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/BrookeHowell/status/666664858524524544

@suddenlyfrugal

A2b I then prioritize the ideas by the potential impact & least time needed to execute #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

I would also say, it’s really about efficiency. About streamlining your content creation. #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

@danielerossi woo hoo! #cmworld

@CMIContent

A2c Growth hacking requires a good process to scale and build a team around. more details http://www.coelevate.com/essays/growth-process-first-tactics-second #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

Agreed #CMWorld https://twitter.com/sujanpatel/status/666664052689506304

@torriegundersen

Analyze where your growth is stagnant and target that area with different tools and approaches. Testing gets the job done #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

@CMIContent @JeremyBednarski Disappeared for a few minutes to read it – very cool! http://www.jeremybednarski.com/2015/11/content-reasons-why-i-love-facebook.html #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666663400458579969

@lindadessau

A2 What will best serve my communities, current and potential customers? That, then ease of use. #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666664872285892609

@LUCYrk78

A2. Analytics! Use data to make your decisions. #CMWorld

@revaminkoff

There’s truth to that. But as w/ lumping all content marketing in w/ snake oil, not fair to overgeneralize. #cmworld https://twitter.com/jgombita/status/666664491539648513

@carmenhill

@eCopyDesk but what is the “familiar concept?” (as quite frankly I am NOT familiar with it. And I’m hardly a stupid person). #cmworld

@jgombita

Q2: Previous knowledge and experience along with testing. What works for one client might not work well for another. #cmworld

@netvantage

A2 A/B testing of processes, check the system integration w/ your requirements #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666664872285892609

@varunkr842

a2 – #CMWorld This is so different for everyone… Product people need to automate AND Engage.. Everyone needs to “AND Engage”

@T4Leonard

A2d More on growth hacking processes: http://www.referralsaasquatch.com/building-process-growth-experiments/ #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

A1: @pr2020 has a Marketing Growth Hackathon webinar on Dec. 2 with @paulroetzer http://hubs.ly/H01n2-70 #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666663355537428480

@JeremyBednarski

I did a presentation called Bacon marketing that talks about streamlining content creation. http://www.slideshare.net/MaureenJann/bacon-marketingv2 #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

@jgombita the familiar concept is to write content and get traffic to it. This is what content marketers and growth hackers do #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

A2: Simple: use what works and dump that which is not! Just remember that failure is not the end; not trying is. #cmworld

@ideakid88

A1. Growth hacking is much abused term for setting up short cuts that are cheap to free #CMWorld

@micadam

From a writer’s perspective today’s hacks = yesterday’s tips and tricks, whatever they may be. #CMWorld

@suddenlyfrugal

A2) Test various content at different times. Look at your data to see what’s working. #CMWorld

@torriegundersen

@carmenhill I am mystified as to where/how/when I “lump[ed] all content marketing in w/ snake oil.” Let alone “overgeneralize[d]. #cmworld

@jgombita

A2) Know your audience! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666664872285892609

@Serious_Vanity

A2: The processes for content growth hacking aren’t exclusively inside-out. UX functionality plays a big role, too. #cmworld

@pisarose

Mmmmmm bacon…. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/MaureenOnPoint/status/666665661381365760

@suddenlyfrugal

A2: look at your MKTG tech stack & figure out where you have gaps & what tech to leverage to help you do more with less #CMWORLD

@Fawzy_Aya

Q2:I try new processes and vendors and systems all the time. Rule of thumb I use is: if it doesn’t make things easier get rid of it #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

A2: Monitor, analyze & documenting. Learn from previous efforts & shift priorities when something is working. #CMWorld

@CrysWiltshire

@CMIContent A2: Decide what your main goal is and go from there! #CMWorld

@ExperianDQSteph

Is there a fee for this webinar? @JeremyBednarski @pr2020 @paulroetzer #CMWorld

@suddenlyfrugal

a2 #CMWorld -. Analytics give us insight to making better subjective judgment calls.

@T4Leonard

Have to say @eCopyDesk if that is the case, growth hackers do NOT know how to “communicate clearly” #cmworld https://twitter.com/eCopyDesk/status/666665689990631427

@jgombita

Experimentation is key! A/B tests, various audiences, usability, etc. You don’t know until you test! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666664872285892609

@BetsyDaitch

@suddenlyfrugal @pr2020 @paulroetzer Nope, it’s free! #CMWorld

@JeremyBednarski

A1: #GrowthHacking is being mindful of audience + tuning into analytics. #CMWorld

@danielleadairz

@jgombita sounds like you have had a bad marketing experience #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

Q2. Look at your sales cycle & metrics for success. What could be high impact, fast growth for one might be long for others. #cmworld

@carmenhill

Exactly. It has to be a right fit for the strategy. As trends change, so too might the processes & tools. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/MaureenOnPoint/status/666665976491020288

@gShiftLabs

@BetsyDaitch 🙌🏻 #CMWorld

@torriegundersen

Q3: How do you know if your brand is growing in the ways and at the rate it needs to on the marketing side of things? #CMWorld

@T4Leonard Analytics is a major contributor for good decision making. As is keyword research to ensure searchable content. #cmworld

@MaureenOnPoint

When everyone talks about successful content strategies, it’s the collection of assets, not any one that provides strategic value. #CMWorld

@ArrenHPark

@CMIContent Sorry for the shameless plug, but you kind of set me up for it…lol. #CMWorld

@JeremyBednarski

I believe that’s true for most uses of the word “hack” @micadam — short cuts that are cheap to free. #CMWorld

@suddenlyfrugal

A3: Our key KPI is: Our we reaching our goals? #CMWorld

@SueBrady

Unsure where you got idea from @eCopyDesk. I simply think it is #contentmarketing “conventional wisdom” to think term well known #cmworld

@jgombita

Exactly! Continuous improvements are a must. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CrysWiltshire/status/666665975845150720

@amitykapadia

A2. always question the results and challenge there are better ways to realize your goals #CMWorld

@micadam

@BrookeHowell curious – how have you been using growth hacking Brooke? #cmworld

@karrabarron

A2) We analyze what’s working and explore how we can make a bigger impact with it on a larger scale. Also follow successful co’s. #cmworld

@CrowdContent

A3 Most people over complicate this one. I keep it simple: #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

A2:Identify which audience you reach on each platform and A/B test content on those sites. @CMIContent #CMWorld

@JS_insidepitch

@JeremyBednarski with friends like you and @paulroetzer, we’re happy you did it! #cmworld

@CMIContent

@T4Leonard Analytics are a help, as long as we don’t become automated dashboard zombies. http://ow.ly/ULpxY #cmworld

@pisarose

A2: #growthhacking is all about analytics to me. But smart analytics, not vanity metrics. #CMWorld

@danielleadairz

For us, content downloads should improve KPIs which should ultimately improve the revenue goals. #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

A3b Measure branded search volume using Google Search Consule, sales or customers by direct & branded search #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

Analytics and testing are the key to it all. Use a combo of @googleanalytics and @hotjar and you should be all set #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

.@jgombita Valid point, but “Resistance is futile” — here in Silicon Valley, people love growth-hacking #CMworld

@AnneJanzer

@T4Leonard Thanks! I aim for professionally silly as my personal brand! ha-ha #offtopic #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

A3b I’m never satisfied. Brand growth can always happen faster #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

So @AnneJanzer if Silicon Valley says it is so, the rest of the #contentmarketing world must weakly abide? #cmworld https://twitter.com/AnneJanzer/status/666666388530987008

@jgombita

@eCopyDesk what’s the most insightful test you’ve run so far? #cmworld https://twitter.com/eCopyDesk/status/666665327321866240

@karrabarron

A3 Compare results w/ your goals. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666666368591224832

@varunkr842

A3. Make sure you have a clear measurement stick. Many brands have no zero measurement point either – so growth is hard to see #CMWorld

@micadam

A3c fast enough? I’m never satisfied. Brand growth can always happen faster #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

@CMIContent A3: By focusing on the data and analytics! Retention, virility, etc. #cmworld

@ExperianDQSteph

A3: Data. What are you trying to accomplish and what data can you use to measure that goal. #cmworld

@netvantage

MT @CMIContent: Q3: How do you know if your brand is growing in the ways/rate it needs to on the marketing side of things? #CMWorld

@ShakirahDawud

@karrabarron In part, I’m always on the lookout for audience questions and ways to tie content to news & trends. #cmworld

@BrookeHowell

Thanks @JeremyBednarski @pr2020 @paulroetzer Suggestion? Put your CTA for webinar on top & more obvious. Had to scroll to find link #CMWorld

@suddenlyfrugal

A3: Analytics will show you how your marketing is doing and increasing sales will confirm its success. #cmworld

@ideakid88

A3) Every brand is different. Set goals by researching competition + testing content. #CMWorld

@torriegundersen

A3. Define what growth really means to you, the company and the brand #CMWorld – much overlooked thus making for fluffy measurement #CMWorld

@micadam

A3: @CMIContent By setting up measurables for the marketing department that coincide with the sales/business side. #CMWorld

@ToddPatton

A3d More on brand measurement here: http://www.kaushik.net/avinash/brand-measurement-analytics-metrics-branding-campaigns/ #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

Not at all, @jgombita – but some battles are hard to win. The OED’s word of the year for 2015 is an emoji. #cmworld

@AnneJanzer

You’ve got probs if you aren’t sure! 🙂 Always be testing and analyzing against your goals/KPIs #cmworld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666666368591224832

@LUCYrk78

@pisarose “If it was all about analytics, a blind person could drive” ~rel #cmworld #quote “No Vision Required”.

@T4Leonard

@AnneJanzer Silicone Valley (mainly) young, male, Caucasian engineers also been accused of designing for self not general populace #cmworld

@jgombita

@MaureenOnPoint @SFerika I was wondering the same thing 😉 I hear about walking meetings at some workplaces – very cool #cmworld

@lindadessau

A3: Set measurable goals & tie them to the strategy. Look at metrics, which actually matter & forget the vanity data. #CMWorld

@CrysWiltshire

Indeed but you need a clear Zero measurement #CMWorld https://twitter.com/netvantage/status/666666900261236736

@micadam

A3: Your brand is growing in the right ways (marketing-wise) when your most engaging content adheres to personas & use cases. #cmworld

@pisarose

@MaureenOnPoint This one is standing as in recurring every Tuesday, but have had many literally standing meetings in the past. 😉 #cmworld

@SFerika

A3: Plain and simple: Your stakeholder are happy! Good leads & positive feedback from prospects. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666666368591224832

@BetsyDaitch

A3: Measure and compare what matters to your brand (leads/customers/revenue) – it all boils down to the bottom-line. @CMIContent #CMWorld

@amitykapadia

@ToddPatton Agreed! it doesn’t count unless it’s serving the business. Not enough time in the day to create “fluff” #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

danielleadairz : A2: #growthhacking is all about analytics to me. But smart analytics, not vanity metrics. #CMWorld

@GrowthBible

@karrabarron a CTA button copy test I ran was insightful. I ran one on the contact page that showed me leaks on my website #cmworld #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

Translate you business goals into real measurable social goals #CMWorld https://twitter.com/ToddPatton/status/666667140007596032

@micadam

A3: In the end it always comes down to sales + reaching business goals. #CMWorld

@danielleadairz

@lindadessau @MaureenOnPoint I used to do walking meetings for some of my 1:1s. It’s a nice break from the office. #cmworld

@SFerika

@carmenhill I would question what is the value of a concept the majority of the populace doesn’t get instinctively? #cmworld

@jgombita

A3: I think when people start becoming advocates, and marketing on your behalf, the dominos have started falling #CMWorld

@EvanLePage

A3: Metrics – are you measuring your KPI’s and progress towards your business goals? #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666666368591224832

@JeremyBednarski

A3:KPIs. Are you engaging people. Are you developing new audience & brand loyalists? You know if you interact regularly @CMIContent #cmworld

@JS_insidepitch

@SFerika Hehehe I couldn’t help myself. We have a literal standing meeting at 9am #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

A3. What matters to any brand is Revenue and Marging (shareholder return) – all the rest is just secondary measurements #CMWorld

@micadam

A3 There’s never a shortage of analytics you can look at, and I’d suggest always measuring against goals to see how you stand #cmworld

@LUCYrk78

@SFerika @MaureenOnPoint Nice #cmworld

@lindadessau

.@jgombita Yes – sexism in tech (and beyond) is a battle definitely worth fighting! #CMworld

@AnneJanzer

A1. (sort of) Growth hacking ≠ content marketing. There’s more to it than that. #CMWorld

@carmenhill

Standing only meetings are also very productive #CMWorld https://twitter.com/SFerika/status/666667419486810113

@micadam

@suddenlyfrugal @pr2020 @paulroetzer Thanks for the feedback, Leah. We’ll take a look at it. #CMWorld

@JeremyBednarski

a3 #CMWorld – too many different possibilities here. Investors, ROI, or my favorite, “It feels good”.

@T4Leonard

Q4: What growth hacks can be used to improve your day-to-day activities and content marketing processes? #CMWorld

A3) Marketing and sales are closely tied with us. If sales goals are being met, it means that marketing is growing appropriately. #CMWorld

@CrowdContent

@carmenhill how did you do that doesn’t equal sign?! #cmworld

@LUCYrk78

#A2 Define the goals, define the audience, select the most relevant processes, and test to see what works best. Rinse and repeat. #CMWorld

@OhstenMarketing

Agreed! Exactly what we’re helping companies do @Ambassador. #CMWorld https://twitter.com/EvanLePage/status/666667463401185280

@ToddPatton

A3: Set your goals. Figure out what KPIs you want to track against. Work backwards from that goal. If you meet it you are on track #CMWORLD

@Fawzy_Aya

@CrowdContent Yup! It’s one swoop from the moment a lead hits our systems all the way through closed opportunity. #CMWorld

@MaureenOnPoint

@BrookeHowell of course. That’s when prioritization and process come in play #cmworld

@sujanpatel

@MaelRoth then why not call it that?! Or “strategic” (why and what) content marketing? c @netvantage #cmworld

@jgombita

A4 make a habit of questioning everything. Why did a work and not b? How can I get b to work as well as a? #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

A4: Outreach & Relationships are the two biggest things you can do in content hacking! more here: http://blog.contentmarketer.io/outreach-emails/ #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

@eCopyDesk always know your why! #cmworld

@CMIContent

a4 – original content (we all have some) and engage…!!! #CMWorld

@T4Leonard

So many brands are missing the opportunity to evangelize customers & turn them into advocates (aka revenue generators) @EvanLePage #CMWorld

@amitykapadia

A4: Immerse yourself in the social space & build relationships with influencers. Great way to source thought leadership. #cmworld

@pisarose

A4b Growth hack your way into the press http://sujanpatel.com/pr/get-press/ #CMWorld

@sujanpatel

@sujanpatel outreach is important. But it’s tough for someone starting out, you don’t always get a positive response #cmworld

@eCopyDesk

A5: Schedule everything to remove roadblocks from getting stuff done & automate as much as you can! #CMWorld https://twitter.com/CMIContent/status/666667876682600448

@JeremyBednarski

@eCopyDesk @sujanpatel For every negative response, you’ll get a positive response! Keep at it! #CMWorld

@torriegundersen

@jgombita There are lots of terms not widely understood, unless or until they’re relevant to you. That’s the nature of jargon. #CMWorld

@carmenhill

@torriegundersen So Right On.. we all have some… just say it (write it) !! #CMWorld

@T4Leonard

A4: Pretty simple. Listen to what people are asking, and provide solutions and answers. That’s the best content. #cmworld

@JS_insidepitch

@eCopyDesk @sujanpatel Very true. However, sometimes a positive image can come from how you handle negativity in outreach. #CMWorld

@CrysWiltshire

A4: Referral marketing automation! Let your customers share your content & help grow revenue @CMIContent #CMWorld

@amitykapadia

@eCopyDesk True, but you don’t need many of those kinds of relationships #cmworld

@ShakirahDawud

Love this post @jgombita – thanks for sharing it. I was distressed about emoji. #CMworld #offtopic #wordgeeks https://twitter.com/jgombita/status/666668692219015168

@AnneJanzer

Concept needs to be partially self-evident WITHIN words @suddenlyfrugal! Ex. “organizational narrative” #cmworld https://twitter.com/suddenlyfrugal/status/666668769826115586
