Reid Hoffman and team invited well- connected people in the industry. Public profiles launch in 2006, became a second major growth channel due to SEO.
  7.

  10. Growth Team Organization Today Discovery (SEO) & Onboarding Network Growth Notifications & Communications Core Growth China India New Markets (Germay, Japan, Healthcare) International & Segment Growth Experimentation Reporting Standardization Data Products
  11. Principles vs. Tactics
  12. Ignore the hype about Growth Hacks and Tactics
  13. Focus on principles, not tactics • Principles >> Strategy >> Tactics • Tactics have a short shelf life. • If all you know are tactics, you will likely apply them incorrectly. • Once you understand the principles, you can find the right tactics and even come up with your own.
  14. What we’ve learned along the way
  15. Growth is about accelerating the realization of your vision, not moving metrics up-and-to-the-right. • At LinkedIn, our vision is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. • Growth team accelerates this through creation of the economic graph that connects people, companies, jobs and schools. • Taking this view led us to focus on quality signups, not just signups
  16. Pick one North Star metric, measure everything • Define one north star metric that: • Is aligned with the success of your business • Measures value for users • Is summable • Sometimes, one is not possible. Go for as few as you can. • Measure everything and tie it back to the north star metric.
  17. Good product comes first, growth second • Investing in growth before you have a good product is a waste of resources. • Measure product goodness with long-term retention (curve should flatten over time) and through customer feedback • If your retention isn’t good, nothing else matters. Improve it by delivering core product value early and often. Good retention Bad retention %age of users engaging by weeks since signup
  18. But we needed to do more… • For products with network effects or marketplace dynamics (LinkedIn has both), you need to achieve a good product and growth simultaneously. • Products get better with more users and can be useless without a critical mass. • We solved for this by building two powerful growth engines from the start.
  19. Investing in multiple scalable growth channels multiplies your odds of success • Being dependent on a single growth channel is a strategic liability. • Have at least one core channel, invest in strategic channels like new platforms and have some venture bets. • We developed two core channels: Viral growth through members building their networks by importing contacts and SEO of people profiles.
  20. User Behavior Identifying Growth Channels • Do existing users share your product via word of mouth? • Are people using search to find a solution? • Do users have a high LTV? Channels to explore Virality, referrals SEO, SEM Paid acquisition • Does having more users improve the experience? Virality • Are your target users already on another platform? Partnership, Integration
  21. Channel Break down each Channel into Drivers Virality Drivers %age importing contacts, # of contacts imported, %age inviting, # of invites sent, CTR on invites, Sign up conversion Quality signup rate Measure everything and tie it back to the north star metric.
  22. Prioritize channels and drivers Brainstorm hypotheses and ideas Assess impact on north star metric Prioritize based on impact, probability of success and effort Build, A/B test and measure Growth Requires Continuous Prioritization and Feedback
  23. A/B Testing => Always Be Testing • The more you experiment, the faster you learn and innovate. • It can resolve long-disputed strategy questions and break down long-held myths. • You can A/B test most things • We’ve done statistically significant tests to measure impact on customer complaints on an issue with a volume of a few hundred/week • SEO A/B testing can be very effective • As your user demographics change over time, repeating old tests can lead to new insights.
  24. Hiring the right people • Analytical • Gets shit done • Curious – asks why? • Finds new ways to do things – asks why not? • Prior growth experience is optional
  25. Culture • Data trumps opinions • Set ambitious goals • Move fast • Learn continuously • Celebrate wins
  26. “Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth” Final thought I’d leave you with… Rumi
  27. Thank you! Aatif Awan Vice President, Growth & International Products at LinkedIn www.linkedin.com/in/aatifawan aatif_awan
