Why your business needs a "growth stack"

There’s a wealth of software and tools available for businesses to simplify marketing, so much so that implementing too many tools begins to complicate processes. This is where a growth stack comes in.

What is a growth stack?

According to Hubspot, a growth stack is an interconnected set of tools that work together to achieve a specific result. The stack helps convert traffic with the right forms, contact insights and analytics to drive growth.

The stack combines three tools together: 1) CRM, 2) sales and 3) marketing. This focuses your marketing and communications efforts, so you don’t have to manage multiple, disjointed tools.

What’s in it for you?

Implementing a growth stack addresses some of the pain points sales and marketing professionals encounter daily, such as:

  • An incomplete stack e.g. sales and CRM work well but marketing has numerous tools
  • Sales and marketing teams aren’t aligned
  • Product creep is overcomplicating the stack
  • Sales and marketing are slow

A growth stack will unify tools used and as the name suggests, drive growth. Research has shown businesses that use marketing automation to nurture prospects experience a 451% increase in qualified leads (Annuitas Group).

As more businesses adopt an account-based marketing (ABM) strategy, a growth stack is integral to deliver personalised, contextual content and convert leads.

Building a growth stack

Depending on whether your business provides products and services to B2B or B2C, the type of technology you will use will differ and therefore how you build a growth stack.

However, the main components that are necessary in both markets are:

  • Content Management System (CMS)
  • Email automation
  • Social media
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
  • Analytics

Other components might be appropriate for your business but the main thing to consider is that a successful growth stack will be one that is structured to meet your needs and objectives.
