Usually every quarter we meet for our Growth Hacking meetup. After a long break due to the pandemic the series of Growth Hacking meetups continued on Oct 7th, 2021 with two exciting growth cases.

After such a long time it was a great chance to discuss and learn from growth cases of other companies, listen to the expert panel and contributions from the audience.

In case you missed it: we’ve collected the slide decks and are also sharing a podcast version of the meetup.

Meet the Presenters and Growth Cases

Growth Case: Sherpany

presented by Marco Mancini (Growth Hacker, Sherpany)

Sherpany is a Meeting Management Software to streamline decision-making, shorten meetings, and securely access everything you need.

Problem: targeting all regulated industries led to generic messages

Solution: switch focus to an account based marketing

Key insights

  • LEARN, do surveys internal & external
  • BUILD hypotheses, run the most important
  • TEST, you need an experimentation framework, measure with KPIs
  • RESULTS, find your target audience
  • COMMUNICATION is key, target different persons with different messages

Growth Case: Calingo

presented by Daniel Litscher (COO, Calingo Insurance AG) makes getting an insurance easy, digitally – without any paperwork, just a few clicks and you know the price for your customised insurance. Cancel it monthly.

Problem: nobody is interested in insurances, digitally it is difficult to know the moment, when people need it, insurer ask questions people don’t know the answer

Solution: one click insurance, tailored products whilst the customer does not need to answer a bunch of questions

Key insights

  • Reduce complexity
  • Ask only few questions and based on that offer different options
  • Find unconventional channels, where there is a connection to your product (e.g. movings are connected to a new insurance)
