To me growth isn’t about single channel, metric, or the latest shiny digital trend. It’s about having a real impact upon a business’ bottom line. Growth means understanding what your customers want from you in the market, and then knowing which levers to pull to efficiently scale that.

Growth is 80% inspiration and 120% perspiration. You need to understand the fundamentals of your business and be the best at communicating customer value. But you also need to put your head down and grind – it’s a numbers game. The one who understands both gets twice the results.

Based on these insights, growth comes down to the numbers and customer understanding. To achieve and accelerate growth, you need to find ways to deliver outputs more efficiently, while making sure that those outputs push towards common business goals.

On the other hand, your efforts need to be based on deep understanding of the customers’ pain points and needs. Talk to the customers and study the market – what are the products & services that really make a difference? After all, your job is to help the customer succeed. Growth will come as a side product.
