101 Growth Marketing Tips - For Every Marketer

Tip #1 - Sustainable Marketing is Key

If you have to take an orange everyday in order to survive, you can continue to buy oranges everyday of your life, or buy oranges everyday while investing more in buying a farm and planting orange seeds, with the hope to either reduce or stop buying oranges when you start harvesting.   

Paid Marketing is buying oranges everyday of your life. It works, but it is more expensive. You’ll die the moment you stop buying or when your money runs dry. 

Organic Marketing is buying a farm and planting orange seeds. This is cheaper in the long term, you’ll get endless fresh oranges from your farm daily. You even stand a chance to start selling excess oranges from your farm to others like you who needs orange to survive. It just takes time to start working. 

Both have their pros and cons. However, if your company want to live long, investing in organic marketing is your best bet.

Organic Marketing is SEO, growing social followership and engagement, etc.

Tip #2 - Marketing Product Use Cases is Better

If marketers were asked to choose the biggest marketing lesson from the success of Canva, it should be their incredible product positioning, and use cases.

If your product has 100 use cases,  market each use case as a separate entity.  This will make your #marketing effort more granular, easier for consumers to understand, and achieve a wider reach than marketing your product in one piece.

THE CANVA USE CASE
The team positioned Canva as not just a design tool, but as a solution for different cases.

They’ve positioned Canva with as a; Card Maker, Social Media Design Maker, Custom Print Maker, Office & Business Design Tool, Marketing Design Maker, etc.

They’ve succeeded in creating hundreds of product pages for each use case. And for each use case, the’ve to design hundreds of templates for customers to start from.

NB: You can find them all here

They’ve brilliantly succeeded in breaking the product down to the tiniest bit. And this will make it easier for them to succeed with marketing, sales and even #SEO.

The role of product marketers in defining messaging and use cases is perhaps the most pivotal to the success of any company.

The LESSON

1. Never market any product in one piece. You should rather break it down to the tiniest bit, and market each unit as a separate product on its own.

2. A landing page or homepage alone is usually difficult to position your product.

3. Are your customers using your product for what it wasn’t made for? Position yourself with it. That’s another use case.

Can you think of any product that can position itself in more ways than the company already does?

Tip #3 - A Product Can NEVER Market Itself

 “A great product will market itself” is a mediocre statement, and it’s far away from the truth. If product could market itself, product marketers will not exist. 

The statement is often a ploy from product leaders and founders with limited marketing knowledge to reduce marketing budget.  

If there are strong marketing competitors in your industy, the one with the best product wins. However, if you’re in a niche with companies building incredible products, the one with the best marketing wins. 

Marketing is always a differentiator. 

Tip #4 - Not Every Marketing Channel is Great for your Busines

Unprofitbale Channel(1)

“An ads channel can be deemed unprofitable or unsustainable if the Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) from that channel is higher than the Lifetime Value (LTV) of an average customer acquired from the channel” 

  • Let’s say you spend $100 on Google Ads to acquire a paying customer.

  • If a customer pays $15 per month, and the LTV of your customer is 5 months, the maximum revenue you can generate per customer will be $75.

  • In this case, even without adding how much it’ll cost you to service a customer for 5 months, you can already say a channel is unprofitable or unsustainable.

Many factors affect the profitability of a channel. Before you can make definite decision on whether or not a channel is unprofitable, you have to make sure you have done everything right. 


– Are you selling the right product or services? 
– Are you targeting the right people? 
– Are your copy, landing page, and conversion optimization tactics effective? 
– Are you tracking the right data? 
– Do you have experts running your ads manager? 

Above are all of the things that could affect the profitability of a marketing channel.
