A modern approach to education

Don’t pay until you get a job

Universities and other bootcamps charge you tens of thousands of dollars up front, without any guarantee of a job. This has never felt right to us — so we’re flipping it around.

Our students pay 12.5% of just their first two years’ worth of salary only after they’ve landed a well-paying job. This means no loans, no debt, and no risk. And you get to do it remotely.

Since we only get paid if you get a job, we are motivated to intro you to the many tech companies in our employer network, and we prep you for your interviews. We advise at every step.

(Not interested in the income sharing structure? We also offer an upfront payment option of $11.5k + 0% of income.)

Gain real work experience

Our program goes far beyond reading materials.

You’ll have access to growth channels and data from real companies, so you can apply your learnings to companies similar to those you want to work at. When you graduate, you’ll not only know growth marketing at an advanced level — you’ll have have a portfolio of real growth work to show potential employers.

And you get hands-on mentorship and in-depth feedback from our team — through real-time chat and screenshares.

When you graduate from Demand Curve, you actually know what you’re doing in the real world.

Even existing marketers who go through our program become considerably better and command more senior salaries.

Top-tier education

We do not discriminate based on past experience. We welcome novices and experts alike. If you're already an experienced mid-level marketer, we go deeper than you've learned on the job. Expect to get four years of on-the-job learning in only 9 weeks. We distill data from working with a hundred top companies. Because you're learning from a team that runs growth for major startups — today. We aren't retired marketers.

What do I learn?

Students leave our course mastering the tactics we've used to grow brands including Framer, Envoy, Streak, Clearbit, Service, Tovala, Perfect Keto, and many others.

Training is done through a mix of written guides and real-time Slack conversations. Almost nothing is pre-recorded.

Our growth training is broken down into four sections:

I. Growth Strategy

Learning starts with building a solid foundation, and that's the goal of week 1.

You’ll learn the four fundamental components that influence a company’s growth strategy and, ultimately, how to apply that framework to build your own growth strategies.

Choosing the right ad channels

Choosing the right growth strategy

Correctly setting up attribution

Understanding your core metrics

  • Video ads: animated and live production

Cold email

III. Conversion

Landing page structure and design

  • Client examples: Before and after
  • See our highest-converting landing pages

Conversion rate optimization

  • Even the most effective ad strategy has no impact on growth — without conversion-optimized landing pages.
  • We teach you the psychology behind effective landing page designs and copy. You will develop a complete landing page under the guidance of your instructor.
  • You’ll then learn how to run A/B tests to continually improve conversion rates.

IV. Job Placement

Your dedicated advisor will help you hone your interview skills, polish your resume, and connect you with the employers of your choosing.

How to build a growth team

Valuing startup equity

Warm introductions to employers in the Demand Curve network

Maintain an edge.

We have your back after you’re employed. Ask our instructors 1-on-1 questions in our alumni Slack community far after you graduate. So, if your new employer needs you to do something you haven’t done before, someone at Demand Curve can show you how.

We also post our internal learnings about what’s working for our agency clients — so you get better at growth every month when we do.

Most marketers don’t get access to that kind of mentorship and data. Not even senior ones.

After all, it’s in our interest to make you look good. We want employers to only want to hire Demand Curve graduates.

Asher King-Abramson — Head Instructor

What our students have to say

“I had virtually no experience with paid marketing prior to working with Demand Curve. I learned in minutes what would've taken me months of testing or scouring free sources elsewhere. Overall, I'd say I leveled up 10x by taking their course.”
Ryan Wegner
Cofounder at Audm, Y Combinator S17
“I'm a junior marketer at a startup preparing to aggressively begin paid acquisition. I knew enough growth to be useful, but I needed to know more to be very effective with ads. Demand Curve provided the hands-on feedback and walkthrough references needed to level up to senior-level skills.”
Max Orshan
Growth Strategist at Rhino
“I took Demand Curve a few months after graduating college. In about 3 weeks, we were profitably getting many more customers through Facebook, Pinterest, and Google ads. When it was over, we didn't have to hire an experienced marketer to help and I felt my skills had grown exponentially in such a short time. Demand Curve provided thorough and hands-on feedback the entire course and were always open to clarifying any questions I had.”
Sarah Teller
Head of Growth at Farm Tables & More
“The Demand Curve course might be the most valuable thing I've done for my career. I began the program with a good foundation in marketing, but Demand Curve really helped me to develop a growth mindset. The course's structure allows you to tailor your experience to serve the needs of your business, and every project you do contributes to growth in a direct way. Best of all, you're able to get honest, in the moment feedback from instructors.”
Candace Kim
Growth at Scanwell Health, Y Combinator S18

FAQ

What will I be capable of doing after the training?

Everything an entry to mid-level growth hire needs to do day-to-day.

  • Building and implementing a growth/marketing strategy.
  • Identifying, prioritizing, and running high-impact growth experiments.
  • Evaluating marketing channels and choosing the optimal one(s) for your company.
  • Analyzing any company’s business model, product, and growth funnel to determine the biggest growth opportunities.
  • Launching and optimizing ad channels at an advanced level.
  • Writing, building, and testing landing pages that convert.
  • Writing content that gets you customers, not just readers.
  • Applying behavioral psychology and UI/UX design best practices to build landing pages, onboarding flows, and products that convert and users love.
  • Knowing how to build referral programs that people can’t help but use.
  • Identifying the most critical growth metrics and knowing how to properly set up tracking to measure those metrics.
  • Using an arsenal of the most modern marketing tools and software trusted by the world’s top companies.

How is this better than other growth bootcamps?

Two main ways:

1. Our income-share agreement

Most growth bootcamps charge you a flat upfront fee. That’s a lot of money to fork over to potentially not get a job.

We make sure the incentives are aligned. Our curriculum has to stay modern and up to date — or employers won’t hire from us.

2. Real agency learnings

Other programs write curriculum based on their instructors' personal experience. Those instructors tend to be senior growth managers who have worked at only a few companies — that grew years ago.

Through our agency arm, we're tactically growing many startups every month. Which means we continually update our curriculum with what is actually working right now (with plenty of examples) and partner with real companies to apply your skills. That beats subjective experience.

This gives you an advantage when competing with other bootcamp grads for a job; not only can you apply to the companies you’ve already worked on, but you can reference real, up-to-date results from the field. That work for real companies.

When you’re in a job interview, that’s a lot more powerful than parroting the latest blog post.

How does pricing work?

We offer 2 payment plans:

  • Income sharing: You pay absolutely nothing upfront. Once you get a job making at least $40k, you’ll pay back 12.5% of your salary for the first 2 years. There is a cap of $25,000, which equates to an average salary of $100k per year for both years. The ISA ends either after 2 years after graduation or the cap is reached, whichever comes first.
  • Up-front tuition: We also offer the option to pay $11,500 upfront with no salary-based repayment. (We don't guarantee job placement if you pay up front.)

All prices are in USD.

How much time do I need to commit to the program?

5-8 hours per day, 5 days per week, for 9 weeks.

How are the classes structured?

The written portion of the curriculum is hosted on GitBook. Every day there is approximately 1 hour of reading and 5-7 hours of projects.

Daily “office hours” are held via Slack at 10am - 11:30am PT and 1pm - 2:30pm PT. During this time, students work directly with their instructors to ask questions, get feedback, brainstorm/strategize, etc.

Can I see a syllabus?

Sure thing! Here’s the syllabus for the first four weeks.

I’m located outside of the US. Am I eligible for the program?

Yes, if you’re in Canada.

Is the program remote or in-person?

The program is 100% remote.

What if I’m a very advanced marketer already?

It depends on your goals! Even advanced marketers can get a lot of value from the program. For example, if you’ve spent the majority of your career specializing in 1-2 channels and now want to pursue a generalist role, then the program could be a great fit for you. If you’re unsure, we encourage you to apply and our team will work with you to talk through your goals and decide what’s best.

What if I have zero marketing experience?

Then you should absolutely apply! We created this program to help anyone break into marketing - regardless of previous experience.

How do you help me get hired?

In two ways. First, we pair you with a dedicated advisor who prepares you for all aspects of the hiring process - from perfecting your resume to conducting mock interviews and negotiating the best offer. Second, we have a private network of employers who are specifically looking to hire Demand Curve graduates. We’ll connect you directly with the best employers based on your goals and preferences.

Is there any financial risk to me?

Not at all. If, for any reason, you do not get hired after going through the program, then you pay absolutely nothing. We mean it when we say there’s no financial risk.

What is the expected salary range for Demand Curve graduates?

The expected salary range depends on your previous experience, location, and a host of other factors. For example, a senior growth marketer in San Francisco or NYC may make $150,000+, while that same individual can expect to make less in areas such as Denver or Austin.

Once you apply, our team will help estimate your earning potential based on your specific background and goals.
