– How a $1 Product Generated $240M in Revenue:
You know the Dollar Shave Club. Before they were acquired for $1B in 2016, they generated $240M/year in revenue.

1. “$1-dollar razor”. Think about it: This is a compelling, disruptive statement to attract attention.

3. 73% of their sales were coming from their $6 and $9 models.

Growth Hack #3
– Let Others Sing Your Praises:
Show, don’t tell. If people love your product, use their quotes and words to advocate, rather than superlatives that describe your product.
Here’s an example of two ways to write a testimonial:
” ‘The Snack’ app is the latest and best way to get growth snacks on the go. Our users learn so much.”
“@TwitterUser1234 – ‘I love “The Snack” app. I’ve learned so many new cool ways of growing my startup – it’s super helpful!’ “
Clearly, the one that uses a customer quote is more convincing.
Embed positive tweets/social posts about experiences with your product, share short testimonials, app store reviews, etc.
