Derek Flanzraich, Founder & CEO, Greatist
Reaching 1 million unique visitors per month in less than one year is no easy feat. In this class, I'll share the actionable tips & tricks you can use to hopefully achieve it even faster than we did thanks to social, organic, high-quality growth. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be a black hat SEO expert, the social media ninja master, Bill Simmons, or an evil wizard to build a product, content site, and/or startup with an awesome, engaged, exponentially-growing audience.
None. Though this class is typically most useful for someone planning to build or already working on a site that emphasizes growth from content (whether it's a blog or, say, a company with a blog), there's a lot that's applicable to growth for web products of any kind!
None. A detailed outline of everything (seriously everything) will be sent via email after the class-- just come & drink it all in.
