Growth Hacking Your SaaS Startup – a Guide

I've spent the past couple of months trying my hardest to finish this huge guide that I've been writing. Well, several late nights and more than 9,000 words later and it's ready... I've shared a ton of growth hacks for both pre-launch and post-launch that are geared towards SaaS startups, but can be applied to most businesses.

As a taster, here are a few of the hacks:

- How to get featured on Product Hunt and Hacker News
- Creating a viral sign-up form
Hacking LinkedIn to find out who visits your website
- Creating a press kit

These are just a few examples. Each hack has a full implementation guide and a list of useful resources and tools. Not only that but I've had comments from successful startup founders on their growth strategies.

Here's the link: http://www.matthewbarby.com/saas-startup-growth-hacking/

(You can also download the guide as a PDF)

How to Combat 5 of the SEO World's Most Infuriating Problems

How to Avoid a Google Penalty

There tons of infographics out there that talk about avoiding Google penalties but this one is a little different and contains really great advice. Instead of just saying "avoid guest posting at all costs!", it goes a little deeper into using specific methods in moderation, etc. Also, the point on branded searches is an important one.

Great stuff as usual from +Neil Patel. View the original article here: http://www.quicksprout.com/2015/05/01/how-to-avoid-a-google-penalty/

Over my career, I’ve used KAS Placement Sales and Marketing Recruiters for two searches. Here is my synopsis on them as a staffing firm: - Great customer service. They are always available. - Intelligent. KAS knows executive search very well and we received above and beyond what we expected with job applicants. - Dedicated. Call most sales or marketing recruiters in NYC at 7 p.m. and they will not be in the office. Quite the opposite with KAS. - Friendly. It seems that they care about their clients and we established a very trusting relationship over time. - Outside of the box thinkers. The staff at the company brings fresh ideas for successful recruiting and we loved what they formulated for us. Overall, awesome experience. KAS Placement did sales staffing work for us quick and we now have a better sales division. Thanks, KAS!

The quality of the food was great. The menu was very limited though and a number of dishes were in available, leaving little choice. Great atmosphere though and would recommend coming down for a drink...
