Meet Your Growth Goals Quarter After Quarter With Growth Loops

Today’s B2B winners are not growing with a funnel—they’re growing with a set of compounding growth loops that continually reduce friction and acquisition costs.

Customer Acquisition Has Changed for Good

For the past several decades it’s been common practice to build a marketing funnel to drive growth. You build awareness in your market with content. Then you leverage emails, gated assets, and retargeting to move buyers through the funnel. And then you start over the next quarter.

But now acquisition costs are increasing faster than your marketing budget, putting you in a race against the competition for who is willing to spend the most to acquire a new customer. Talk about a race to the bottom! There are three huge shifts that are driving up acquisition costs faster than you can outgrow them.

Limited Marketing Channels

Limited Channels

The number of new channels being created every year is decreasing. We’re still all investing in Google, LinkedIn, & Facebook, and they’re all more saturated than ever before.
Increased Competition

Increased Competition

Categories are now filled with hundreds, and sometimes thousands of competitors and alternatives. This dramatic increase is accelerating the cost of customer acquisition.

Channels are continually moving the goalposts and changing the algorithm to make organic content discovery harder. Channels are moving more and more towards a pay to play model.

Funnels drive mediocre growth. Growth Loops create meteoric growth.

Demand Gen Funnel Icon

Marketing Funnel

Funnels are about putting more in at the top to get more out at the bottom – more channels, more spend, more people, more tactics, more awareness.

  • Funnels only operate in a liner direction. You put more in at the top to get some revenue at the bottom.

  • Works only when you add friction—and friction kills your acquisition and increases cost.

  • No competitive advantage. Simply a collection of saturated marketing tactics and channels.

Demand Gen Growth Loops

Growth Loops

Growth loops deliver repeatable growth that’s self-sustaining and compounding over time and is a more defensible form of customer acquisition.
  • Drives compounding growth. Loops are self funding and improve growth rate over time.

  • Reduces friction over time—increasing acquisition while decreasing costs.

  • Massive competitive advantage. A self funding growth loop that improves growth metrics quarter after quarter.
