How to Hack Growth Hacking: The 6 Best Growth Hacking Resources

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

Growth hacking — aka user acquisition — is what makes or breaks startups. Without gaining a substantial amount of new users each week, startups won’t grow in important categories like revenue and engagement. Back in 2013 I interviewed several top growth hacking experts in a series which remains quite popular today (Part 1: Growth Hacking Defined, Part 2: Real Examples of Growth Hacking in Action and Part 3: Growth Hacking and the Future). But it’s clear that startup teams need more than just info: they need growth hacking resources. So I’ve compiled a list of 6 growth hacking tools to help your startup thrive. Whether you’re looking for simple growth hacking tips, a full-on growth hacking course/class or something in-between, you’ll find what you need here. If I missed a good resource, let me know in the comments. Good luck!
