  • Efficient Growth Models – Implementation of new growth practices, such as the "lean innovation" and "minimal viable product" build-learn-evolve approach, creating efficient models for rapid growth
  • Content Marketing – Growing adoption of content and social media marketing providing new ways to scale customer acquisitions with less reliance on traditional, expensive sales channels
