How can a Growth Hacker like Abdul Ali benefit your company/startup?

Established companies can achieve breakout growth if they adopt a cross-functional, data-driven approach to rapid experimentation. Sometimes conventional teams and entrenched process make the growth transformation bit challenging.
Startups: In the early stage of a start-up, what you should pay attention to is creating that all-important the first impression to inspire customers and clients to trust your brand. When they feel that trust, they’ll buy your product or service and they’ll refer others to your business through word of mouth and the social network.
With Growth hacking, I can help you create that impression immediately.
Startups have a significant advantage of using new tools for rapid growth experimentation. Especially when they are able to build the right systems, team structure and execution habits soon after reaching product/market fit, I’ve helped implement this approach from the ground up at several startups that are now highly successful.
B2B: A whopping 68% of B2B organizations have not identified their funnel yet. If you’re targeting other businesses, growth hacking will streamline the entire process for you and you’ll ultimately close bigger deals through a funnel that centres around great customer experience.
B2C: For B2C companies & startups, growth hacking will help define a business’s ideal customer, which then makes reaching and converting them into purchasing customers and clients much easier.
With 10+ years of professional experience, I have developed many business growth strategies that have helped jumpstart growth at established businesses as well as startups.
I use data & analytics-driven tools, marketing channels, customer feedback, prioritization, automation and much more.

For Growth Transformation, I can take the following responsibilities for any company/startup:
·       Set measurable goals, hypothesize, prioritize and test innovative growth strategies.
·       Choosing in accordance with the other departments which Metrics/KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to focus on.
·       Bringing traditional and creative ideas on how to grow those KPIs.
·        A/B testing those ideas. Analyze and test to see what’s working.
·       Analyzing the data and customers/users’ feedback.
·       Exchanging ideas/data/feedback with other departments (Product, marketing, top management) in order to present results and make the product/service more customer/user-centric.

Failure is good, what’s your opinion ?

Let’s try to know, What is Failure?

"Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective and may be viewed as the opposite of success"

One of the few universal truths in life is that we all fail a lot, it's a normal part of the human experience, just like breathing, eating. In fact, it's not just normal, it's absolutely necessary. Your growth as a person, and as a professional has a lot to do with how you understand and use the setbacks you face. Unfortunately, for far too many people, the experience of failure is highly negative. The word itself has taken on a huge negative dishonour or shame.  People don't want to focus on their failures.
That's too bad, We need to talk and think and give time to understand failure because they truly do represent the key to your success. In this Abdul Ali’ blog, I'll give some tips how You can improve, how you think about failure, what you learn as a result, and how you use failure to make improvements, ensuring that failure always leads to progress. 

Let’s start understanding failure more, 99% problems are because of our Psychology or normal mindset

We love and celebrate success, thus we dislike and shun its opposite, failure. But that's not really good logic. It’s our negative thinking. We can understand the importance of failure. It’s an important part of a journey for success.  

Few Quotes:

  •       I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong. —Benjamin Franklin
  •       Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. —Henry Ford
  •       Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor. —Truman Capote
  •       He who risks and fails can be forgiven. He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being. —Paul Tillich
  •       The man who has won millions at the cost of his conscience is a failure. —BC Forbes
  •       All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. —William Faulkner
  •       Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure —these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. —Steve Jobs

Now let’s move ahead- "Giving up is the only sure way to fail.” - Gena Showalter

Try more and keep moving.

The formula to success - Try – Fail - Learn – Success

Most of the people they try and get a bad experience in trying, they stop trying and learning.  this is 100 % link to our psychology and acceptability to learn from failure.   
Remember its part of success.   

Accept failure,  Its part of learning


- Let's start with a powerful idea, everyone fails. When you fail, you need to remember that you're in moving positively. 

Few motivation facts.


  •          JK Rowling, she has refused by publishers, This is not the first time that Miss Rowling has faced literary rejection.

  •     

Ask one question, What makes them so special? 
Is it their amazing talent and intelligence? Maybe, but most experts point to something else. Work ethic, tenacity, and a strong desire to not give up. They were willing to fail many times. While most people would have quit after one big failure.

Key practice, it will help you to keep moving

Key Weaknesses

  •  The outlook for the agricultural sector is limited by the small size of the country and the hot, arid climate.
