MaGIC Academy: Turbo Charge User Growth


Growth hackers are constantly concerned with the million dollar question of “How do I get customers for my product?” They strive to find the answers with A/B tests, landing pages, viral factors, email deliverability, etc. There’s no denying that growth hacking is becoming increasingly important. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs have used growth hacking techniques to grow products up to millions of users, including Facebook, Dropbox, Grab, Twitter and Pinterest.

Based on the stages of the Lean Marketing Funnel, this workshop will heavily focus on user acquisition and other crucial growth drivers like user activation and retention, which are often completely underestimated or simply forgotten by entrepreneurs and startups.
