    I would say an aspect of Growth Hacking is "Viral Marketing" but I would NOT say "It Is" Viral marketing. The overall premiss of Growth Hacking is to create a synergistic environment within your marketing efforts. You want to Aquire, Retain, and get Referrals. - Viral marketing unto itself would really only be Aquiring.


    Hotmail being probably the best example... you as a user send emails... they place a tag at the bottom "PS I Love You. Get your FREE E-mail." in a sense this would be viral.. the message is being sent out by the hundreds of thousands every day. The Growth Hack aspect is the referral by clicking the link and setting up a Hotmail account - referrals become newly Aquired users... that being the synergistic nature of growth hacking.

    Growth hacking is a new process that combines traditional marketing, analytical skills and product development skills. It focuses on the idea that you understand your users first, let them discover and use your product so you can build features that will acquire and retain them as users.

    The term growth hacker was coined by Sean Ellis out of his frustration in finding the right fit for the job he does. According to him, “growth hacker’s true compass is north.”

    Growth Hacking describes a new process for acquiring and engaging users combining traditional marketing and analytical skills with product development skills. In the past, marketing and product development departments were often at odds where marketing groups would be spending significant amounts of money to acquire users but couldn't get any development resources to build something as simple as new custom landing pages. And on the other side, product development teams would often build what they think users want and will attract users without deeply measuring and understanding the impact of their changes. This concept of "growth hacking" is a recognition that when you focus on understanding your users and how they discover and adopt your products, you can build features that help you acquire and retain more users, rather than just spending marketing dollars.
