Growth is the evolution of marketing.
Marketing has traditionally been about getting more eyeballs.
Sales was responsible for converting those eyeballs into sales.
Product was responsible for keeping people around.
Growth is the intersection of all three:
It's cross disciplinary:
It's helping attract more of the right eyeballs.
It's helping sales close more of the right clients.
It's helping product serve their needs better.
It's about removing the blockers to the company's next stage of growth.
It's about setting up systems to make growth seamless.
Growth needs to be a core focus and principle of a company. Every founder needs to understand growth.
Only they can cause it to permeate throughout the company.
