If you’re looking for a complete Growth Hacking course, Davis Jones’ Growth Hacking Masterclass is absolutely fantastic.
In about 7 hours, Jones takes you through the basics of Growth Hacking all the way through a complete project. Jones is an excellent teacher, and the class is one of the best-selling Growth Hacking courses in the world.
Best-selling author Nir Eyal’s growth hacking class is called Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products. And it’s superb. In just 35 minutes, you’ll learn a framework for building products that are so sticky your users can’t stop coming back.
#2 – Springboard’s Digital Marketing Career Track
Springboard’s Digital Marketing Career Track is so popular, there’s sometimes a waitlist.
Springboard students follow a comprehensive digital marketing curriculum but learn at their own pace. Over the duration of the class, you’ll complete enough projects to prepare a complete marketing plan.
Most important, Springboard pairs students with professional marketing mentors who can answer questions and provide career advice.
Is there a drawback to Springboard? While Springboard’s Marketing Track is fantastic, the course is a bit too focused on traditional outbound channels, so it’s a better fit for those who want to build a foundation and less helpful for those looking to get more creative.
