9 reasons why Belgian Marketers struggle with Growth Hacking:

Growth hacking is hot. Moreover, many Belgian marketers are aware that growth hacking is a big thing. However, most of them struggle with it and do not really know how to take the next step to implement growth hacking strategies at a large scale.

“Growth hacking is a process of rapid experimentation across marketing channels and product development to identify the most effective and efficient ways to grow a business. A set of both conventional and unconventional marketing experiments. “

“Growth hackers are marketers, engineers and product managers that specifically focus on building and engaging the user base of a business. Growth hackers often focus on low-cost alternatives to traditional marketing like social media, viral marketing or targeted advertising instead of buying advertising.”


But why do Belgian marketers struggle when it comes to growth hacking?

First of all

  1. they are questioning the use of growth hacking;
  2. they might not understand the full concept we trust these tactics;
  3. they are afraid it will burn cash if it’s not delivering satisfactory results;
  4. they are convinced it is not for, but for beginners with a low budget and low expectations;
  5. they don’t believe growth hacking can be implemented  in their organisation.

Basically, growth hacking seems to be a psychological struggle. Most Belgian marketers are not convinced that growth hacking should become a fundamental part of their online strategy.

Second, they have tactical and organizational issues with growth marketing:

  1. they don’t know where to start;
  2. they can’t find consultants or experienced people who can help them;
  3. their company does not have the technical resources to make growth hacking a succes;
  4. they have no idea how to measure ROI coming from these tactics.

Bottomline, on top of the psychological reasons, Belgian marketers also struggle with tactical and technical issues.
