It's time for the monthly update on my top growth hacks. Here's the Feb 2020 edition list:Hack #1: Leverage Engagement Pods
Join real engagement pods for YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn over Automated Engagement Pods to boost your engagement with real people of similar interest groups or affinity interest groups.Hack #2: Convert Mentions to Links
Convert mentions to links by finding who's mentioned you or your product online but hasn't given you a link back. In some cases, if the discussion if on forums, you can add the link as a response after thanking the mention.Hack #3: Free Upgrade in Exchange for Referrals
If you have a premium version of your product, offer a free upgrade for a month in exchange for new referrals from the user to the free version of the product. This keeps the user happy and rewarded while growing your list.Hack #4: Remove Image Backgrounds Automatically
Use the free tool at www.remove.bg to remove image backgrounds. I found this very useful for my campaign designs and newsletters for my clients. This option is also available in Canva Pro.Hack #5: Extract ProductHunt Upvoters
There are hunters, and then there are upvotes. I've talked about finding hunters in my 30 growth hacks series and you can follow a similar process to export all upvoters of certain categories of products giving you a database of twitter handles you can outreach to check out your new product launch.Hack #6: A/B Test Your Competitor's Landing Pages
This hack lets you get the best of the best of the best. Your competitors have already been doing A/B testing on their landing pages (if they're any good). For your next landing page, just take 4 of your competitor's landing pages, make minor edits to content, add your logo and branding, and A/B test them against each other to sell your product or service of course!Hack #7: Add a Countdown to Your Landing Pages
Make your offers expire. Model Udemy for this. The way Udemy promotes courses or Amazon offers special pricing if ordered within a certain time duration. Using any of these tactics, include a countdown timer on your landing page to create urgency.
