A growth hacker is an IT professional who uses elements of marketing and market research, along with technology and technical strategies, to provide marketing solutions to clients or employers. Here, the use of the term hacking indicates a use of logic processes and technology toward a specific end goal, in this case, customer retention and sales, rather than other uses of the word, which refer to illegal or aggressive behavior toward networks and IT systems.

Social Media Marketing & the B2C Relationship
For businesses looking to capture the market of the online collaborative consumers (ROI), CEOs all the way down the organizational ladder need to learn how to market themselves as “caregivers”, professionals and ultimately as real humans to their customer base. This means everyone within a particular organization should be constantly reaching out to the customer base online, not just the marketing department or the social media “experts”.
Business people should be selling themselves not solely based on analysis, statistics, customer testimonies or through traditional marketing, but also through giving customers the opportunity to learn or even open a dialogue that does not seem automated online.
Bottom line, in order for businesses to be successful in online selling, the organization must accurately sale it’s individuals within that particular market or industry because simply stating that you care about your customers in your business model is simply not enough.
It’s time for companies to really start opening up the books, sharing what’s in the business plans and stop holding board meetings with underlining agendas.
