However, growth hacking can be used to validate hypotheses or assumptions about a new business idea, a possible additional feature or a variant of an existing online product.
This mindset is based mainly on building lean experiments thanks to which we can validate a hypothesis on a specific step of the “pirate funnel” (or “AAARRR funnel”):
The success of the experiment strongly depends on how well it is set up and prioritized with respect to other potential experiments that could also drive growth.
Nobody is an expert at everything, and it’s important to be able to bounce ideas off with people that have more experience with you.
A very common use case for talking to a growth hacking expert is using them as a sounding board to get feedback on your growth hacking strategies.
Another popular use case for talking to a growth hacking mentor is to learn best practices on how to implement an experiment-driven and data-driven growth strategy within your organization. You can learn a lot faster by asking direct and pointed questions to a veteran practitioner than by consuming static blog content and video courses.
Common Use Cases
Growth hacking is all about using an agile process that’s grounded in rapid experimentation and constant learning. It’s the business version of holding a growth mindset, and it’s for that very reason that it works so well.
The success of any growth experiment strongly depends on how well it is set up. Are you using a standardized and repeatable framework? Are your growth experiments prioritized with respect to other potential experiments that could also drive growth?
If you’re spending more than $1M per year on PPC, simple Google searches won’t help anymore.
The first acquisition channel we recommend bootstrapped startups experiment with is almost always outbound sales.
The age-old dilemma. Should you hire in-house marketers or outsource to an agency or freelancers.
If you’re in need of help in making sense of everything – prioritization, actionable items, where to start, then speaking to a mentor that has prior head of growth experience can be game-changing.

- Google Hangouts

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.
- Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
- Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
- Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
- Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
- Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
- Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
- Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
- Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
- Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).
