We're building support for @mentions in GH comments and hope to release the feature in the next couple weeks. The goal is to help foster even more engaging discussions.
There are a few other email notifications that you've probably seen, including:
Email to post submitters when there's new activity on their post
Email to members discussing a post when a new comment is added (can be turned on/off in your account settings)
And with the @mention feature, we'd be adding a new email to let you know when someone's mentioned you.
We definitely don't want to keep bombarding you with emails, so it'd be great to hear which notifications you'd like to receive, which ones you could do without, or just thoughts on our email notifications in general :)
A content audit is a detailed examination of your website's existing content with the purpose of ensuring that it's doing what you want it to do - driving the right kind of traffic, containing the right kinds of keywords, and improving conversions.
Content is the most important factor of your site's existence. It is your web site.
In this article, Neil Patel explains what you need in order to get started with a content audit and how to perform one.
Everyone is familiar with what Dropbox did by putting up a short demo on Hacker News where they simply talked through what the product did while showing it.
There's also other examples of great short explainer videos.
The common thread is that they all talk to what's being shown.
I was wondering whether such videos necessarily need to have a voice over or can a quick 2 -3 minute video without voice over showing a product's key features be as successful (or at all)?
Many of us find it easy to create good quality content, but fail to get the right distribution muscle to help lift it. This article shows a couple of neat tricks to help. Interactive infographics, ftw!
We're very excited to announce our first ever Growth Hacking Conference is going to take place in London, England in October. Europe has been home to some of the most exciting growth stories out there - from Skype, to Spotify and LogMeIn. I helped launched two startups in Europe and know that there is some amazing growth talent throughout the continent.
In particular Europe has led the world on the Conversion Rate Optimization front. CRO is one of the most powerful growth levers and I'm excited to announce that Dr. Karl Blanks from Conversion Rate Experts is committed to speak at the conference. Karl may be the most talented CRO professional on the planet, so you will not want to miss his presentation.
But of course, we'll also be pulling together some top growth talent from this side of the pond. Neil Patel and I are definitely heading over to speak, and we'll be lining up a lot more USA speakers.
We have a limited number of early bird tickets going on sale today at a significant discount. Really excited to connect with all of the European marketers and growth hackers!
Start-ups live and die by how effectively they acquire and retain customers.
At Tradecraft I've learned a lot about growth hacking, which was my main focus throughout the twelve-week program here. During that time, Jamie Quint stood out to me - he's garnered a lot of respect as a growth professional and consultant and is a Y Combinator founder.
In this article I share my favorite highlights concerning what I've learned from Jamie's articles and interviews.
