A Meta-Curation of the Best Growth Hacking Curations (Say Whaa?)

Ever since growth hacking started trending, people have been competing to create the ultimate curation of growth hacking resources. I don’t know about you, but all I’ve wanted to do is put all those curations in one place.

Well, I did, and I’m depositing them here.

Truth is, I’ve always been obsessed with collecting collections. I know it sounds crazy, but in terms of exploring a subject thoroughly, a great collection can be better than a MOOC! And like my friend Ariel here, I’m a secret/now outed hoarder.

Notable example: My Planet of Useful Curations collection on Product Hunt.

I suggest picking one of the following mega-curations (the ones in the first half have more than just tools) to learn from and checking out the bonus mini-curations as well, as extra material at the end for some extra shots of knowledge.

And I sincerely hope you don’t get dizzy from this cluttered post. 😛

Ready? Let’s start with the top 6…

The Guide for SaaS Startups

This *might* be my favorite one. The guide outlines a whole process – pre-launch and after launch, and every section explains everything you need to do, includes the right tools to use, and links to helpful resources. If you need a step-by-step kind of thing, this is your guide.

GrowthHackers.com

There’s a great collection of “growth studies” on the site, where popular companies get autopsied by growth hackers. Other than that, you have to search a lot and engage some, but I think it’s worth it. Just think of the knowledge you’ll gain after having followed some of the pro’s.

It can get overwhelming how something is trending today and the next day it’s something else, but if you’re serious about becoming a growth hacker, you should hang in there. Good luck!

TigerTiger’s Sourcebook

This sourcebook looks almost too intimidatingly cool.

I’ll let you decide whether you like the design or the contents better, because I have not finished reading all of it. But I admire these guys for putting so much effort into it (and making it into a guide).

Roy Povarchik’s Google Doc

It’s called The Ultimate List of Tools for Growth Hackers. Roy is a friend and a very intuitive growth person. (I never know what to call my colleagues seeing as many of us don’t take the title “growth hacker” seriously.) He started this public document so that everyone can add their stack. Including you!

The Marketing Stack

The Marketing Stack was on Product Hunt yesterday. It’s made by Ben Tossell, who is an excellent curator. It’s full of tools for every need (and I mean every need), and some articles thrown in. Worth a bookmark.

35 Tools for Non-Tech Founders

It sucks to be the one who can’t put two lines of code together, but when you have this curation of tools for people like me, you suddenly feel like you can do anything. Let’s face it: everything has got their own strengths, and we don’t really need marketers who can code, like we don’t need developers who can market. What we need is a symbiotic relationship.

And now a shameless plug.

By Yours Truly

My own collection is a little bit messy right now, but it includes all the people, blogs, tools, and articles you should be checking out. And I update it compulsively, so if I see something really cool, I add and tweet it.

If you have any suggestions of resources to add, let me know.

Bonus Curations

(because there are plenty of things left to hack)

Other Than Curations

Guides

Austen Allred’s Book

The full title of his book is “The Hacker’s Guide to User Acquisition“. So far it has three (very detailed and insightful) chapters about getting press, twitter, and instagram. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for the rest! Austen is one of my favorite growth hackers (I mean, just look at what he did with Glasswire), even though he doesn’t like the term.

Quicksprout’s (Visual) Guide

Who doesn’t love Neil Patel’s guides?! Seriously.

This is one I’d recommend to complete newbies. It’s very detailed and visual, and it explains all the basics, from what growth hacking is and what the funnel looks like to specific growth tactics on every level. There are no outward links and not too much detail, so it’s mostly just a crash course.

The Developer’s Guide to App Marketing

I hunted this a while back because it’s the most useful and succinct guide for app marketing I have come across. It has simple hacks and links to resources, but it’s mostly for developers, as the title says.

Courses

One Month Growth Hacking

I haven’t taken this course, but I can imagine it’s as brilliant as every other course started by Mattan Griffel. He is the true master of optimizing the growth funnel, and if you take this quick course, you will be, too.

Ryan Holiday’s Growth Marketing Course

I have not taken this one myself, but I have read Ryan’s books, including the primer to growth hacker marketing, and even though I would mainly recommend it to beginners, I’m sure the course is worth the $39, especially seeing as it includes some bonus material. Check out his resources, too.

Blogs

Groove’s Blog

Among the obvious choices, Groove’s Blog is my favorite.

From “aha” to “oh shit”, we’re sharing everything on our journey to $500k in monthly revenue. We’re learning a lot and so will you.

What better way to learn than learning alongside someone who is also learning and documenting everything? Exactly.

Other Noteworthy Blogs

Phew, was that a lot of material we covered or what? If you know of any curations that should be included here, tell me sooner rather than later, and I might include them in my Medium article. Thank you! 😀
