      4 ideas in no particular order:
      1) Add tweet (or share) this icons next to each submission so its easier for people to share posts with their networks (including those who have not signed up with GH)

      2) Conduct AMA's or focused discussions/q&a's with experts on GH/reddit/inbound/ustream/google hangounts/spreecasts etc - and then host the video versions on a GH youtube channel

      3) Conduct a growth hacking course/workshop on CreativeLive (the likes of Noah Kagan have already done so)

      4) Pinterest: Create boards for
      a) company focus studies
      b) Most useful articles (according to you and/or the community)
      c) Most useful marketing tools for xyz
      d) etc etc

        I like the third suggestion. Udemy may be a good resource for that as well, because growth hacking has been listed among their top ten skills being learned on the site.

        An excerpt from the e-mail I received about it in September:

        " Check out the top skills Udemy students are learning so they can break away:
