Growth marketing provides a structured framework to run experiments and measure their growth impact, but strategy with no tactics has no impact.
Most of the best growth “quick wins” tactics come from deeply understanding user psychology. That includes the obvious “hacks” (referrals, pricing, social network) plus traditional “brand” activities (quickly earning trust, positioning, comprehension). By focusing on these tactics, companies were able to double, triple, even 10X their impact with simple changes, using little budget and almost no development resources.

Matt Lerner is a growth marketing veteran, having worked in marketing and product roles (before growth marketing officially existed) at Macromedia, PayPal, and later as a VC running 500 Startups’ growth marketing program in Europe.
During this 11 years stay at PayPal he occupied multiple roles, including Marketing Manager and Product Marketing Group Manager. His team’s work had a direct positive impact on PayPal’s stock, counted in the billions.
Later, he became a partner at 500 Startups and led their growth marketing programs (aka “Distro Dojo”) in both London in Berlin, working directly with some emerging tech companies such as Storemaven, SimplyCook, ZenJob, AirSorted, Popsa, Settled, Lexoo, Thriva, CharlieHR, HonestBrew, Fy and Second Nature. He helped more than 35 startups achieve an average YoY growth of 250%.
After watching hundreds of European startups waste investors’ money on bad marketing hires and expensive non-scalable tactics, Matt founded Startup Core Strengths, a structured coaching program to help startups learn the foundational mindset and habits to drive sustainable growth. Matt occasionally lectures on Startup Marketing at Imperial College and Stanford Business School.
Growth Marketing is the process of designing and conducting experiments to optimize and improve the results of a target area. In order to do that, growth marketing requires setting up a growth funnel and a growth metric (aka the “north star”) which are measured during each experiment to see if metrics are improving.
Have you have read ‘Influence’ by Robert Cialdini, ‘Predictably Irrational’ by Dan Ariely, ‘Thinking Fast and Slow’ by Daniel Kahneman or ‘Hooked’ by Nir Eyal and thought ‘wow, I’ll bet that thinking could really help my marketing?’ Guess what, you’re right!
User psychology and behavioral economics provide a deep understanding of how the user’s feelings, thoughts and actions are connected, providing answers to questions like “why do they share this page?”, “why do they choose this option?”, “why do they click this button?”. This new layer of understanding provides new insights which can be used for designing growth experiments.

Understanding your users can make the difference between the success or failure of your product. Well-conducted interviews can reveal the reasons users “hire” your product to advance in their lives and the timeline that got them there.
