Calling all Startup CEO's, PR pros, and digital marketers. Startup Milwaukee is hosting a #GrowthHacking Night on Wednesday, April 2nd at 6pm. What is Growth Hacking you might ask? Growth hacking is a marketing technique developed by technology startups which uses creativity, analytical thinking, and social metrics to sell products and gain exposure. In many cases Growth Hackers are simply good at using techniques such as search engine optimization, web site analytics, content marketing and A/B testing. In other words we would like to share techniques, ideas, and methods to help your startup gain exposure.
For the event we will have a panel made up of successful entrepreneurs and marketing professionals. The panel will be moderated by Steve Anderson, Cofounder of Snpaifeye. If you have questions for the panel please submit them to Steve@snapifeye.com. Panelists include:
