growth hacking to get users. A LOTTTT of manual work. Anything to help automate it? FREE tools preferably
Samir Moussa
@nicole_ogloza Preach! We're experiencing the same issue ourselves. I would say you're not doing it wrong. 90% of your growth experiments will fail, so there's little value in automating right now. Any growth strategies worth automating will automate themselves in the form of growth loops. Think long-term strategies like SEO, Referrals, Community development, etc. and mix in some manual one-offs like viral content, product launches, etc.

@samir_moussa what have you done for viral content?
Samir Moussa
@nicole_ogloza We're following Traction (https://www.goodreads.com/book/s...) and jumping between channels, as we're still learning ourselves. We are yet to plan viral content, but hopefully soon. 🀞🏼

@nicole_ogloza I agree, its very tough out there.

I appreciate the thread Samie - we're struggling with gaining free users and trying to convert our first paying customers. There obviously isn't a quick fix for this but any advice is appreciated!

Bringing in power users is definitely a struggle for us. Do you have a good mechanism for community building? And what platforms do you use?
