We all know that silver bullets don't exist in growth hacking, but is there something you'd recommend that's close to a sliver bullet?

    Write down what you've learned. Compile everything you've done. Sharing those lessons will help you learn and will drive people to you.

    Word-of-mouth is more powerful than any marketing campaign or growth hack you'll ever concoct. So I'd say: incentivize word-of-mouth!

    (Caveat: requires a great product that people *want* to talk about.)

    Create custom landing pages that each one focus on only one pain point of your potential customers.

      I'm testing this right now with one of my clients :) Hope to hell it lifts their paid search conversions.

        My general recommendation, don't just use paid search. With social channels and re-targeting campaigns you can improve your results dramatically.

    Live chat.

    Sometimes it's just the nudge prospects need when the page you've built doesn't cover every single need and question that they have.

    If you don't have the resources to provide full coverage, put it at a critical point in your funnel.

    The 'influencer bullet' i.e. a @pmarca retweet and/or one from another situationally relevant (your focus area) tech or startup celeb.

      To elaborate, most people I advise/consult with are in the beginning phases of their startup/idea. At that stage, I rarely see a consistent silver bullet beyond getting word of mouth to spike. Just getting shit done and testing different traction channels is really the most successful way to grow IMO.

    Start with Product/Market fit. If you don't get this one, growth is premature, IMO.

    I'd recommend @sean famous survey to get that right.
