200 Marketing Hacks & Tools to Ensure Your Startup Crushes It
Here are the top 200 marketing hacks and tools from around the web to help your startup dominate right out of the gates. You'll love #132.
Are you getting ready for your startup to absolutely crush it? If you are, marketing should be one of your first concerns. Your ability to market your new creation will determine it’s success or failure. That’s why I’ve taken the time to find 200 marketing hacks, big and small, to help your startup dominate the market right out of the gate.
Because this list is so long, and marketing is such a massive subject, I’ve divided the individual hacks into segments:
- General Marketing Hacks
- On-Site Marketing Hacks
- Email Marketing Hacks
- Social Media Hacks
- Content Marketing Hacks
- Growth Hack Tools
Without further ado, let’s dive into these marketing hacks:
General Marketing Hacks
General marketing hacks that apply to any business.
1. Just Get Started
Many startups never even get started with their ideas and business. One of the best tips I can give you is to skip trying to perfect your idea and just get started!
2. Find Potential Partners
You should look around blogs and companies in your niche, and find some influencers to partner with. You scratch their back with a backlink, and they might scratch yours.
3. Understand that People Are Lazy
Yes, even I am lazy. You probably are too. It’s human nature. Make everything you want your visitors to do as easy as possible. Give them obvious signs of what to do next, and reduce the steps to complete the task as much as possible.
4. Forget What You Want – Think of What Your Customer Wants
No offense but your opinion doesn’t matter to most of the world. They care about what they want, not what you want. Think about everything you do from your customer’s point of view.
5. People Buy the Benefits, Not the Features
Additionally, people don’t care about the fancy features of your product or service. They want to know how it helps them. So tell them!
6. Do Your Homework
And by that, I mean do your market research. Find out who your ideal customers are, where they go every day, where they work, what social media sites they’re on, and even their birthday. The more you know about them the easier it will be to show them the benefits of your business.
7. Break Huge Tasks into Bite-Size Chunks
Some of the tasks in this list are quick and simple, and some are massive tasks that may take weeks or months. On the bigger ones, break them down into small manageable pieces to keep from feeling overwhelmed and to make daily progress.
8. Give Away Freebies
People love getting stuff for free. Think about the last time you got an unexpected free gift – did you appreciate the company that gave it to you more?
9. Launch on a Tuesday
Mondays suck because people are catching up with work, and by Wednesday people are in the groove of things. Tuesday is the perfect day to get people interested in something. In fact, many artists release their albums on Tuesday because of this fact.
10. Ensure Quality SEO
One of the best FREE ways to get tons of traffic to your site is by ranking high in Google’s search results. Ensure you’re using SEO best practices on all your pages.
11. Analytics, Analytics, Analytics
Marketing means nothing if you don’t track the results. How will you ever know what’s working and what isn’t? You’re leaving money on the table by ignoring the data.
12. Start Building Backlinks Early
Backlinks are a crucial piece to proper SEO. Start looking for influential partners, guest blog opportunities, and blogs to comment on to start building links to your website ASAP.
13. Discount for Beta Testers
If you’re not ready for a full launch (or are ready but aren’t sure how well your system will work), open a beta version and allow the early adopters a lifetime discount for hopping on board. Not only will this net you some early customers, but you’ll also get some crucial feedback on your system or product.
14. Create a Chrome Extension
If you can think of a way to build a chrome extension for your app or service, do it. It only costs $5, and having one allows you to get easy publicity and potential additional customers.
15. Get Featured in a Roundup
There are tons of bloggers who post weekly or monthly roundups of news, tools, and blogs in virtually every niche. To find those people who are hungry for content, go to Google and type “intitle: monthly roundup [your industry or niche]” (Of course, you can also try weekly instead of monthly).
16. Give Stellar Customer Service
One of the best ways to make more sales and beat your competition is by providing incredible, over-the-top customer service. As Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, famously stated:
“Historically, our number-one growth driver has been from repeat customers and word of mouth.”
They’re a multi-million dollar company, and most of their money comes from great customer service.
17. Submit Your App to Daily Deal Sites (AppSumo, Rewardli, MightyDeals)
If you have an app, try submitting it to a daily deals site to get more publicity and downloads. Try:
18. Post Guides to SnapGuide and Guides.co
SnapGuide and Guides.co are communities in which people submit how-to guides for free, and in return, they can receive traffic back to their website. If you know how to do something helpful to your audience, teach them!
46. Exit Intent
Use an app like Exit Monitor to create a popup window giving your visitors an offer when they move their mouse to leave the website.
47. Write Copy in the First Person
Instead of your button saying “Start Your Free Trial”, make it say “Start My Free Trial”. Use the first person in the rest of your copy, too!
48. Fixed Position Signup Form
Add a newsletter signup form in a fixed position on the sidebar of your page. Emails are like gold in today’s marketing world.
49. Create a Killer “Thank You” Page
One of the most overlooked, and paradoxically most important, pages on your website is the thank you page. You should use this page to wow the customer and get them to take the next step.
50. Use Unique CTA Text
Rather than simply writing “Get Started Now” on your call-to-action buttons, try something unique like “Improve Conversions by 50% Now!”
51. Contrast Your CTA Color
Notice how I showed you a big red “Start My Free Trial” button above? Instead of making it blue like the rest of our theme, I made it red to really stick out and capture attention.
52. Use “>>” in Your CTA
This point is minor, but some research has shown that adding “>>” to the end of your call-to-action button actually increases conversions. Who’da thunk it?
53. Make Buttons Look Like Buttons
Don’t get too fancy with your CTAs. Stick with buttons being buttons.
54. Tweet Embeds of Social Proof
Check out Hubspot’s guide to tweeting embeds.
55. Show Testimonials on Your Home Page
Testimonials and social proof are a major factor of any great website. Without them, your viewers have less trust in you.
56. Credit Card Expiration Reminders
This is great for subscription based companies. If you accept recurring credit card payments, a credit card expiration reminder like Churn Buster can save you a lot of potentially lost account. It will email them to update their payment information when their credit card is about to expire.
If you’re able to, showing your customers on a leaderboard where they can compete with each other will raise their loyalty to your company.
Warning: This may cause some unhappy customers.
58. Gamify Everything
Gamification is becoming the new big thing in business and (hopefully soon) education. It’s so popular because it simply works. You can use an app like Smar7 Apps to gamify your store and increase your average order size.
59. Speaking of Gamify – Give Them a Task List When They Log In
By giving your users a task list, they will not only know exactly what they need to do, but they will also feel accomplished as they cross them off. Literally, show the item being crossed off and greyed out when they complete them; and when they complete certain ones, grant them achievements with badges they can show off on their profile!
60. Let Them Share These Achievements
Once they earn the achievements, allow them to share them via social media.
61. Add Messaging or General Social Elements
If you can find a way to make your platform social, you can increase customer loyalty exponentially. In fact, the more social elements you add, the more sticky your platform becomes.
62. Downsell at Cancellation
When a customer goes to cancel their service or order, try to keep them as a customer by downselling them. For example, when I went to cancel my audible subscription, they offered to give me 3 months at half price if I stayed. They suckered me into keeping my subscription, which I still have to this day.
63. Reach Out to “At Risk” Customers
You can use your analytics software (like KISSmetrics, MixPanel, or Trak.io) to tag a customer any time they are “at risk” of unsubscribing. You could use a simple tag like “hasn’t logged in for 2 weeks” or something similar; when they get tagged, re-engage them with emails or through social media.
64. Email Popups – Yes, They Still Work
Use a popup box to capture more emails.
65. Stop Them From Exiting the Popup
I don’t mean force them to enter their email; definitely keep a way for them to close the popup. To stop them, make them click a text saying something like, “No thanks, I don’t want to grow my business” or “No thanks, I don’t want to be healthy”. You can trigger a psychological reaction in some people who don’t want to click that button because it goes against their beliefs; and thus, they’ll sign up.
66. Have a Blog Subscription Form
Simple, but often overlooked.
67. Create an F.A.Q. Page
If you get a lot of questions, create a page with their answers.
68. Exit Survey
Instead of offering your visitors a discount when they try to leave your website, why not ask them to complete a quick survey of why they decided not to buy?
eCommerce Specific Hacks
These marketing hacks are specifically for eCommerce stores.
69. Social Proof
Include social proof, like product reviews, on your product pages.
70. Security Badge
71. Product Titles
Optimize your product titles to play on emotions; for example, instead of saying “Necklace”, say “Dazzling Sterling Silver & Rhinestone Necklace”.
72. Product Images
Ensure your product images are only high-quality 1080p with no pixelation, and you show it from every angle. For more info on taking great product pictures, check out this article.
73. Product Descriptions
Your description should focus on the benefits of your product, not the features. Make it easy to read and touch on emotions.
74. Product Variants
Include product variants, like color or style, to increase your average order size.
75. Limiting # Per Customer
Limit the number of items per customer to give them an extra sense of scarcity. For example, if you say “Limit 3 Per Customer”, there is a chance people will want to buy 3 instead of 1 because it makes the item seem like a better deal.
76. Use a Countdown Timer
Scarcity increases conversions. Use a countdown timer like POWr.
77. Be Up Front with Shipping Costs and Times
If your shipping cost is free and arrives in 3-5 days, say so. If it costs $10 and takes 2 weeks to arrive, still say so. Keep surprises to a minimum to increase conversions.
Content/Inbound Marketing Hacks
Content marketing hacks and inbound marketing hacks for any business.
78. Create a Content Calendar
No amount of marketing hacks makes up for planning. Check out Hubspot’s Content Calendar guide.
79. Generate Tons of Headlines to Choose From
Never run dry on headlines by always keeping a list to choose from.
80. Tell a Great Story
People listen to and engage with stories more than any kind of article. Tell them a story they’ll never forget, and you’ll be rewarded with more shares, comments, and likes.
81. Tap Into the Top Emotions
According to BuzzSumo: Awe, Laughter, and Amusement are the emotions contained in the most shared articles across the web. Share more content that captures these emotions.
82. Write In-Depth Articles
The majority of top search results in Google are 2,000+ words. Make sure you’re writing in-depth, long form articles.
83. Make Sure Your Content is Actually Useful
That said, don’t just write crap. Make sure the stuff you’re creating is actually useful.
84. Create More “How To”/”Tips & Tricks” Articles
The vast majority of people in this poll stated they prefer to read “how to” articles above all else.
85. Follow the 10x Rule
Provide 10x more value than you charge. If someone pays $10 for your subscription, give them $100 of value. Not literally; but give them the content and help to make it worth $100. Give 200 marketing hacks instead of 20. 😉
86. Write More Headlines
According to Upworthy, you should write 25 headlines (yes, 25 headlines!) before you pick your headlines. Then, pick two and test them.
87. Require Shares for Your Best Content
If you have some content that is just incredibly, over-the-top valuable, require the viewer to share it in order to see it. If you don’t like this idea, then let them access a chunk of it without sharing; once you feel you’ve captured their interest, ask them to share it to continue reading.
88. Make (Some) of Your Best Content Evergreen
The great content that you don’t require sharing to view, but consistently gets views and is relevant even as it ages should be posted on your website to its own page as evergreen content.
89. Make Your Content More Shareable
As in, literally include more share buttons. Make buttons that float with the viewer as they scroll down the page, that sit fixed at the end of the article, and that pop up in the bottom left corner.
90. Stay on Top of Trends
91. Use Memes and Humor to get More Shares
Because, memes. People share them.
92. Link To Your Posts, From Your Posts
Not only will this help Google crawl your site, it will also keep your visitors there.
93. Use Infographics
A picture is worth a thousand words. An infographic, then, is worth ten thousand. But seriously… they get more shares and engagement.
94. Offer a Free Course
Offering a free course is an easy way to grow a newsletter. You could make it as simple as a 3 part email series leading to blog posts you’ve already written alongside some extra commentary.
95. Use a CTA at the End of Your Content
If someone read your whole article, chances are they’re at least a little interested in your content. Offer them a next step.
96. Give Away Free Templates in Exchange for an Email
Hubspot does this really well.
97. Send Discounts to Influencers
If you’ve found some influential people in your niche, send them discounted or free products/services to try out and, hopefully, review/spread the word.
98. Ask if You Can Repost Influencer’s Blog Posts
The use of influencers goes on and on. Ask them if you can repost their blog post to your blog for easy, free content. As long as they approve and you link to them, you should be fine.
99. Look for Broken or Outdated Links or Spelling Errors on Other Blogs
Find broken or outdated links, then content the blog owner about them. Maybe even point out some spelling or grammar errors. They’re certain to thank you… and maybe provide you with a small return favor. Like sharing your content or writing a guest post.
100. Write New Content for Them
To make their lives even easier, rewrite the outdated or broken content and make it better. Then tell them, “Hey this link is broken. I wrote that content too; why not link to mine?” Then they barely need to do any work to replace the link, and you get a backlink and some traffic.
101. Repurpose Your Content
Marketing hacks are great, but you need content! You can repurpose your content over and over. Turn your best content into a video, a podcast, an infographic or a slideshare. Then share it as new content.
102. Interview Key Influencers in Your Niche
Those same influencers you’re after? Ask to interview them! Interviews make for interesting content, and the person you’re interviewing will probably share it as well. They’ll likely feel flattered you asked, so it’s a win-win!
103. Partner with Non-Competing Companies in Your Niche
Look for products or services that would complement your product or service well, then try to partner with them. You don’t have to actually become business partners, but help each other out.
104. Write Case Studies of Your Users
Have some of your customers done extremely well using your service? Write about it! Tell their story – they’ll be flattered and share it, and you’ll have a great story like we talked about.
105. Improve Top Content Based on Keywords
This is a well known, but still highly important marketing hack. Search for top keywords in your niche. Read the top results. Can you write something better? Do it, and try to beat them in the search results.
106. Encourage User-Generated Content
Ask your users to uploads pictures of your product, write testimonials, or even write guest posts on your blog!
107. Don’t Forget to Promote!
The fatal mistake of many business owners and content marketers is that they spend more time creating their content than they do promoting it; promotion is just as important, if not more important, than creating the content in the first place. All the marketing hacks in the world won’t help if you don’t take action on them!
Markerly is a way to advertise with the top influencers in your niche; for a price, of course.
109. Click to Tweet

Email marketing hacks to crush it.
114. Create an Email Content Calendar
No amount of marketing hacks will help you if you don’t write a plan. Of course, Hubspot strikes again with their awesome guide to creating an email content calendar. They also have tons of their own marketing hacks and guides.
115. Use the “Rule of 7”
The rule of 7 states you should wait at least 7 days before promoting your product or service to your leads. During those 7 days, instead send them valuable content; be it yours or someone else’s. If you’re not sure what content to send, check out these next few marketing hacks:
116. Don’t Create Content – “Curate” it
Curating means compiling or organizing the best information in one place. This list isn’t a mere creation of content. It’s a curation of all the greatest marketing hacks I could find around the internet.
117. Send Someone Else’s Content
In your emails, send links other people’s content, as long as it’s relevant and you’re not competing directly with them. Then, tell them you shared it; they might return the favor.
118. Write a Shocking Headline
Your email headlines should evoke some emotions, just like your blog post headlines. For example, try leaving people hanging with a good title like “This One Easy Trick Destroyed My Stress”.
119. Keep Your Headline Short
Try to keep the headline short enough that it doesn’t get cut off. Of course, you could always use the cut off on purpose, like “I lost twenty pounds by…”
120. Use FWD: and RE:
Email messages you receive with the subject “FWD:” or “RE:” are seen as more important and are more likely to be clicked on.
Warning! Don’t overuse these marketing hacks, and don’t use them for just any email. Live up to people’s expectations of it being an important message or this strategy will backfire on you.
121. Use Fewer Images
High-quality images are amazing. Unfortunately, having a lot of images increase your emails chance of ending up in the spam folder. All-text emails are not unheard of in the marketing world; or just one or two high impact images.
122. Provide Social Proof
Embed real tweets from your customers or include testimonials in your emails.
123. Send Better Email Receipts
Use a tool like Receiptful to enhance your email receipts and increase repeat customers.
124. Use Buttons in Your Email
One of your high impact images could be a CTA button.
125. Make it Personal
Marketing hacks alone won’t get you customers. You need to show empathy and become personable. Use their first name in the email if you have it; most email marketing platforms do this automatically now.
126. Promote Replying – And Actually Respond
Ask people to reply directly to your emails. Keep an eye on your inbox, and respond to everyone ASAP.
127. Send Fewer Emails – But Make Them Count
This marketing hack is important – No one wants to be spammed by emails. One or two a week is even pushing it. Try to find a number that works for you.
128. Have a Great Signature
Your signature is a great place for quotes and links to important pages on your website.
129. Email Drip Campaigns
An email drip campaign is a set of automatically sent emails which “drip” down to your customer one at a time over the course of the campaign. Send drip campaigns to increase engagement and conversions.
130. Email Autoresponders
Set up autoresponders if you can’t reply to your email right away, to ensure your customer their email was sent and will be responded to shortly.
131. Resend Emails to People Who Don’t Open Them
Every time you send an email, create a list of all the people who didn’t open it. A week later, resend the same email to that list.
There’s nothing worse than getting an email with tons of spelling and grammar errors. Please, for the love of all that is great, proofread your emails.
133. A/B Split Test
Testing, tweaking, and testing some more is what a marketer is all about. You can easily split test landing pages, emails, headlines and more if you have the right tools (like LeadPages, MailChimp, etc.)
134. Wavelength by MailChimp
Speaking of MailChimp – they have this awesome new tool called Wavelength which allows you to send your emails to other people’s lists.
The next few marketing hacks are really email marketing tools to get the most of your customer’s email addresses. Revue is a place for email newsletters. You can add your newsletter there to be seen by their visitors.
ListBuilder is a free email popup tool.
Vero is an email marketing platform in case you don’t like the others.
MailChimp; another, easy-to-use email marketing platform.
AWeber, a third email marketing platform option.

SendGrid is great for transactional emails.
sendwithus is a different email marketing platform in that they have a very modern design.
Customer.io is a messaging platform for your website.
One of the best features of Klaviyo is the built in abandoned cart recovery.
Social Media Marketing Hacks
Social media marketing hacks to gain followers and customers.
145. SellHack for LinkedIn
Find hidden email addresses on LinkedIn with the SellHack browser extension prospecting tool.
146. Optimize Your Content for Social Media
If you’re not previewing how your website and blog posts look when shared on social media, you’re losing a lot of traffic. Start optimizing your title, image, and URL.
147. Share Often & Consistently
Regardless your chosen social platforms, you should be posting at a minimum of once a day. On Twitter, you could even post as much as 10 or even 100 times per day if done properly.
148. Respond to Comments & DM’s
You shouldn’t need to hear this marketing hack, but so few people do it. Responding to your social comments and direct messages is easy money. People want to know they can trust your business; responding to them gives them that trust.
149. Pick 1 or 2 Main Social Platforms to Start
Overwhelming yourself with every social channel is bound to make you burn out and feel useless. Stick to one or two, master them, and build from there.
150. Use AdEspresso to Check the Competition
151. Share More Media
Facebook has been optimized for images. Instagram and Pinterest are two of the most popular social sites. Media is the way to go. Of course, test this hypothesis to see what works for your business!
152. Promote Your Content on Social Media More Than Once
Post it on FB once today, once in a week, and once in a month. Post it on Twitter twice today, once tomorrow, once next week, etc.! No reason you’re limited to one share – you’ll miss a ton of people if you only share it once.
153. Also, Promote Other People’s Content
Marketing hacks are useless without a little tact. Don’t be stingy. Other people make great stuff your followers would appreciate, too.
154. …Then Tell Them About It
They might even share your stuff in return!
155. Make Offers to LinkedIn Group Owners
Offer the owners of LinkedIn groups in your niche a discount or freebie of your product or service, in exchange for an honest review in the group.
156. Automated Webinars
Use a tool like StealthSeminar to record a webinar and play it over and over to your visitors. Just try not to make it obvious – you might piss them off if they find out.
157. Tweet New Customers
When you get a new customer – tweet them! Say thanks, and welcome to the team!
158. Host Your Videos on Wistia (Instead of YouTube)
Wistia, unlike YouTube, gives you the link and SEO advantages when someone embeds your video on their site.
159. Join LinkedIn Groups in Your Niche
Just as you market to the LinkedIn group owners, join the groups! Answer some of their questions, and maybe you’ll be able to offer your product as a solution.
160. Join Facebook Groups in Your Niche
Facebook groups, like LI groups, are a great way to connect with your audience in your niche.
161. Start Your Own Facebook Group
What better way to start a community around your niche than by making one yourself? You can also answer people’s questions and get them around like-minded people who will help each other.
162. Use Facebook Ads
The next few marketing hacks are all about paid social media. Facebook is becoming pay-to-win. You don’t have to spend a lot, but you do have to spend something. Start brushing up on your FB ad skills.
163. Pinterest Ads
Pinterest is not pay-to-win, but running an ad might help you get more traffic.
164. Twitter Ads
Like Pinterest, Twitter isn’t pay-to-win. However, knowing how to run a Twitter ad effectively will help your business.
165. Social Contests and Giveaways
166. Ask Customers to Post Images with Your Product
Another under-used marketing hack: Asking your customers to post images of themselves with your product can net you some valuable social proof.
167. Get Influencers to Post Your Stuff
Reach out to social influencers to repost your blog or products.
168. Find the Accounts with the Most Retweets
The best influencers are those not with the highest following, but with the highest % of retweets! You can get this information from BuzzSumo.
169. Create a List of Highly Influential Accounts
Here’s one of the best marketing hacks out there. Now that you’ve found some influencers that you could work with, start creating a large list (1,000+) of influencers. Then…
170. Market Directly to Those Influencers
Turn that list into an audience on your FB or Twitter ads, and market your content directly to them. If your content is genuinely good and useful, they’ll share it without you even asking!
