How to choose a growth hacking marketing agency in 4 simple steps (includes a list of all growth hacking & marketing agencies).
Any business that wants to survive, let alone be successful, in cutthroat market conditions has to have a sustainable, long-term growth plan. With the advent of online markets where customers use search engines and just click whatever top result is presented without giving it a second thought, you have to have a rock-solid growth hacking marketing plan to get on top of the pile and stay there, especially if you’re just starting out. This is best done by hiring a specialized growth hacking marketing agency that will boost your business’ online presence despite its teething problems.
Sadly, you might have more pressing matters than worry about your online presence. Startups, scale-ups, and grown-ups typically have 10 work roles per each employee, which means that your team can’t spare any time or energy to deal with growth hacking marketing.
Outsourcing the issue sometimes helps but you might still need another partner with an expertise in growth hacking marketing, wielding a specialized tool- and skillset.
There’s a lot of nuance in choosing the right growth hacking marketing agency depending on your company goals, composition, and roadmap. The very, very first step is accepting that there is a legitimate growth and/or marketing problem and that you do need help.
As you are on our page and reading this, we assume you have accepted that you need help.
Ready to find a growth hacking marketing partner? Start by assessing your needs until you arrive at a set of concrete goals.
Strive to create a long-term roadmap for your business endeavor that will serve as a guide to your North Star, a highly visible point of reference, and then set concrete milestones that will lead you there for the growth hacking digital marketing agency to fulfill. In this way, you have a specific gauge of whether your efforts are fruitful or not.
You should also identify the pain point that’s giving you the most trouble in digital marketing and growth, one where a specialized growth hacking marketing agency can provide a laser-focused solution.
This means you already have metrics from customers interacting with the digital side of your business and can draw worthwhile conclusions out of them. Any preparatory work you can do cuts down on ambiguity and makes the efforts of your growth hacking marketing agency partner that much more powerful.
Next up, define parameters for your growth hacking marketing agency partner. For example: What’s the budget, do you have a deadline and what’s the priority for the task? As you answer these questions, you’ll discover crucial aspects of the task that can be outsourced to the partner agency or split between your in-house team and the agency.
From here, also choose only those services you need and actually can afford; the idea is to have your business end up profitable, not bleed money on services you don’t need.
Try to create an in-house team of specialists capable of dealing with minor issues so you have at least some capacity for immediate action. It’s called a “team” but there’s nothing wrong with having two people in it, as long as they are enough to give some appreciable growth hacking benefit to your business.
As you work with a growth hacking marketing agency, glean what tools, processes and skills they use to accomplish the task and they apply those to your in-house team. Every process you interact with is a valuable lesson, so never consider yourself too successful to stop learning.
The more preparatory work you can do, the easier it’s going to be for the growth hacking marketing agency.
In essence, you should be an authority on your company’s metrics to the point no outside agency can give you the run-around to waste your time and money.
You should know your data inside out and be able to cut through the jargon to data.
A growth hacking marketing agency will also have plenty of moving parts, each of which can grind to a halt for whatever reason.
Your ability to be clear when presenting task requirements minimizes the chance of this happening. Some growth hacking marketing agencies are too ambitious and might chew off more than they can bite, while others might simply be pretentious.
Whatever your partner agency, clarity and focus on data will help you distinguish who has quality and who only the facade.
Ideally, you would have a conversation with your growth hacking marketing agency representative where the two of you discuss data and nothing else.
Once you find such a person that understands what you’re trying to do, the project is essentially halfway done.
It can’t be overstated just how important it is to be prepared before getting the job started.
Each growth hacking marketing agency typically specializes in a certain niche. Ask the representative about the agency portfolio and try to see if your business would logically fit it.
In this way, you’re finding the best partner agency while helping it fatten its portfolio with clients that make sense. There are plenty of faux business awards that can make a portfolio seem impressive until you look at the clients and projects it contains.
Some marketing strategies do indeed work across niches but be wary of the cookie-cutter approach that might not work for you. The end goal is always having the partnership be a great match from the start.
You should also be acquainted with the latest growth hacking marketing trends so no agency can rely solely on buzzwords or past projects to wow you.
It’s a widespread but incorrect notion that past performance indicates future results; a better way to put it is that the current state indicates the potential for future results.
Look through an agency portfolio for an upward trend, meaning the agency took on more challenging tasks over time, which would indicate an ambitious, fearless and curious work attitude.
References are another thing worth investigating. Try to contact the agency’s clients and ask around for what it was like to work with the agency. This will indicate weak points in the agency’s workflow you can start addressing immediately.

Find A Growth Agency That Fits Your Style: Plan For Long Term
Long-term cooperation requires finding such a partner that shares your ideals and has a style to match. More than that, you should have at least some idea what your brand is and how the growth hacking marketing agency is meant to help your brand.
Identify your style of doing business, such as whether you like doing things on a shoestring budget or by overspending. Articulate those ideas and be upfront with the growth hacking marketing agency, “Here we like to overspend on marketing and produce flashy content.” Don’t change the way you do business; whatever your style, stick to it and find an agency that shares the same ideals.
You want to discover such ideas in your business that make you excited and then find such an agency that shares those ideals. Each conversation then becomes a thrilling exchange of information and excitement, where the two of you perfectly motivate one another.
Simply hearing the other person thrilled to be working with you, with electrified brains and ideas, is enough to push your entire business forward.
Plan For Long Term!
Spending more money on a problem doesn’t mean it’s going to get solved faster, better or at all. As Mark Zuckerberg famously said in 2018 after his company got hacked for the umpteenth time, “Security is not a problem that you ever fully solve.” Despite earning $60bn a year, give or take, Facebook still hasn’t solved cyber-security and by the looks of it never will, no matter how much it spends on the problem.
Facebook’s problem is in the concept known as “attack surface”, meaning that any system is only as robust as its least robust component. This is such an incredibly powerful concept that reveals how most companies oriented towards growth at all costs, such as Facebook, haphazardly introduce new features and expand to the point they ultimately get hoisted by their own petard.
In Facebook’s case, 2 billion users sound like an impressive metric until you realize that also includes hackers, scammers or just meanies to the point a regular person will slowly back away from using the platform, leaving it infested with hate speech, clickbait, malware, spam or just plain fake profiles.
The valuable lesson here is that sudden, explosive growth can have tremendous negative consequences for the company. You ideally want to have sustainable growth that won’t increase your attack surface or will at least make the risks manageable.
Each feature should be assessed for vulnerabilities in all aspects, including cyber-security, with the attitude of, “How can this backfire?”
Any product you make should account for scalability and ideally be designed from the ground up to face challenges head-on, not shy away from them. Adding a growth hacking marketing agency to your business will likely amplify all the flaws, so get on them and make everything as robust as possible. In general, whatever enhances user autonomy and privacy is the best possible foundation for a product.
If you feel moved by this logic, then there’s your North Star – make users better equipped to deal with challenges while staying anonymous.
Whatever your service or product, rest assured there’s already a mainstream juggernaut equivalent everyone uses but is secretly sick of.
Now simply find a growth hacking marketing agency that understands the concepts you’re passionate about and you can immediately start making the world a better place.
Find The Best Value, Not The Best Price
Money is a great motivator but can also backfire when you invest too much in a project and simply can’t write off the investment as a bad one.
There is a strong urge to throw more money at the problem to recoup the first investment; guess how that turns out. This string of highly reactive, wasteful investments is commonly known as “sunk cost” and reveals emotional attachment to a positive outcome.
We all want to do better in life as it moves on but it’s possible to get stuck in an extreme mentality that demands only the best results all the time. The thing is, most of the time our results are just OK but we ignore them in favor of striving for constant excellence, which is what often brings failure.
There’s nothing wrong with failure or excellence, what matters is the attitude and emotional endurance after a string of failures occurs through our own actions.
We never have perfect information and by the time we get it, the moment for action is long gone.
What we do have is our gut instinct and experience in handling similar situations that help us make an estimate; lacking experience, we’re left with just our gut instinct that simply doesn’t cut it. Many things we do are just estimates that rarely produce perfect results but the sunk cost fallacy makes us think we should keep trying until everything is just perfect.
Instead of shooting in the dark, spend that money on defining your problem and hiring an expert to solve it.
When you get to hire a growth hacking marketing agency, you’re actually paying for applied expertise that minimizes the chance of catastrophic failure and might just produce perfect results.
Experts don’t tolerate haggling, so first establish that the growth hacking marketing agency has experts and then pay whatever their asking price.
The best way to establish expertise is through a small, easily doable task coupled with immediately available funding.
Create a limited, realistic scenario you can afford to see fail for the growth hacking marketing agency and watch what it can do on a budget.
In this way you’ll limit your expenses, show you’re a serious client and set parameters in such a way that they’re transparent at all times. After they’ve proven themselves worthy and you have verifiable data that shows expertise, don’t haggle and just let the purse strings loose.
Ultimately, invest in experts and foster expertise in everyone involved with your business as the best possible way to grow it.
