I'm wondering if anyone has found good resources (bootcamps, blogs, services, etc..) to learn start up growth management and growth hacking skills / strategies from people that have done it at a high level before?


Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to learn SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Karl, in the field of growth management, I would like to emphasize on organic and gradual steps. Don't be perplexed by your competitors who are running ceaselessly. It is natural to feel insecure when you are a startup and suddenly you are faced with many competitors. Make sure that you stick to the USP of your product. Hold on to it and don't lose focus while you are working on it. And make sure that each day of your work should be a step in growing and developing your startup. 

Good Luck

There are many, it depends on your industry, I found some good resources online from 1000 ventures, fastcompany.com, Niel Patel, and Jonloomer. Again it depends on your industry and area, these guys will guide you to promote your business successfully online. @Dirk, No doubt growthhackers is one of them.

Hi Karl, some great advice and tools have been given above. A key is what Lisa mentions in terms of sticking to what your unique offering is and to remember that there are no finite or magical steps to success, try as best as you can each day. Learn from each day, most importantly, never be discouraged.
