Growth Hacking Tips and Techniques for Startup
Enough with Theory, Time to do hands-on.
I am not going to sell any services to you; we made and still making enough money by doing Mobile App and Web development for clients.
This small Post is going to Help you in Two things
- A) Getting Filtered Mass Traffic for Free
- B) Converting them to You Client
I started my career as a hardcore programmer, but I realized; I can’t sustain without sales. I learnt sales by Books and Video lectures. YouTube is God, and It helps you to learn anything you want. Good things are that most of the things are free.We realise we need visitors that can help us in SEO and Clients from the USA. Due to some obvious reasons, clients from the USA pays well, and we can save 15% in Service tax.
Mistakes We Did:
We hired SEO Agency; they said “Within 6 Month your website is going to rank, I need some of your competitors and Keywords” etc. But things didn’t work the way they were planned to work. I was scared about SEO and Content Marketing.
But Again when you are running the business, and your business needs something you should not give the excuse, there is nothing better than having organic traffic and referral clients.
If you are new, you need a targeted mass traffic. In our case, we were looking for USA or UK visitors. I tried Facebook, Pinterest, Google Ads, Instagram earlier and Nothing worked like LinkedIn.
LinkedIn for Organic Traffic: Our purpose was not to get traffic; our goal was to get clients from USA or UK who can give us Mobile Application and Web Development orders.
LinkedIn helped me get excellent clients. I have shared a post on.
