"Growth marketing" refers to a range of data-driven, multi-channel marketing methods. Implementing these methods can provide big strategic advantages, both when it comes to cost, effort, and results. This is how to get started on implementing growth marketing methods.

Start with a preliminary project to build the best foundation

During the preliminary project, you assess your current position in the market by analyzing your brand, position and competitive ecosystem. You identify areas of strength and weaknesses, and how you’re aligned with the overall commercial objectives and goals. Additionally, you identify unmet needs among strategically important target groups.

To ensure a comprehensive and thorough assessment, it's recommended that both company and customer representatives are involved in this phase. It is also highly recommended to involve representatives from different parts of the organization, including from customer care.

Perform a thorough analysis, and keep an eye on the trends

During the analysis phase, it's important to gather and analyze data from a variety of sources, including traffic sources, user behavior, and visibility. To gain a more complete understanding of the performance, it's also important to compare your results to industry benchmarks.

For the most comprehensive results, both qualitative and quantitative data should be analyzed. This includes evaluating your traffic sources, user behavior, search engine- and social media visibility, customer satisfaction, and competitive positioning. Additionally, it's essential to consider market trends. By keeping an eye on the latest trends, you can identify emerging opportunities and gain a competitive advantage.

Monitoring trends can help you identify emerging opportunities and capitalize on them quickly. This can lead to long-lasting benefits and sustained success in a fast-paced and ever-changing market.
