We discussed our growth strategies, messaging our core value props, reverse engineer others' growth engines, what works/what doesn't work for my type of business.. a whole lot of clarity and new ideas came out of our call. Brilliant!
Zack has some real world experience when it comes to growth hacking. Great call and good feedback!
Great talking with Zack.
I called Zack to get his thoughts on Growth Hacking, and found the call extremely helpful. Zack had interesting perspectives and got right to the point in answering my questions. He also connected to me on Linkedin and offered to keep in touch, which I really appreciated.
Over and above being an outstanding interactive designer, Zack is the most knowledgeable and down to earth person I've ever worked with. He uses a comprehensive knowledge of social networking, business and interface design to create successful experiences for end users and clients.
I had the great fortune to work alongside Zack while at BranchOut. Zack’s passion for the product, keen design eye, and collaborative spirit made him a fantastic team member and colleague. To see just how impactful Zack’s work has been to BranchOut, check out the amazing hockey stick growth BranchOut had in early 2012. It’s his leadership of the growth team that so greatly contributed to making that effort possible.
In short: He’s a damn good growth hacker, designer, and product manager. Consider yourself lucky to have him on your team.
Working with Zack over the past year at BranchOut has been a sincere pleasure. He has a great attitude, is incredibly talented and is always willing to pitch in to get things done. Personally, I've learned a great deal from Zack as he is more than happy to mentor and guide less experienced team members. I see him as a very strong leader with an innate ability to motivate others. Any team would be lucky to have Zack on board.
