Growth Hacking: Free Tools For Small Business Owners
Are you a small business owner, start-up or kitchen table entrepreneur looking for ways to systematically growth-hack your biz without spending the heritage you haven’t even inherited yet?
- HATE nerdy & complicated tools but
- LOVE free & powerful hacks you can implement during your lunch break or before getting dinner ready
this course is for you!
- you’re already pretty busy and
- don’t want to spend your funds on shiny biz thingies advertised on Facebook.
Growth-hacking doesn’t have to take a lot of time.
Growth-hacking is not just ONE big and hairy thing.
Everyone can use growth-hacking strategies. Also when their small business is actually still tiny.
My name is Nathalie and I built my first successful online business in 2016.
Because I can never sit still and learn new stuff more often than other people have regular bowel movements, I’ve started building other businesses, too.
With limited time.
(Because I have small kids).
And fun and non-nerdy tools.
(Because I’m still wearing a tech-onesie myself and don’t intend to ever grow into a full-blown nerd.)
Also, my French roots are allergic to over-priced tools and services, which is why I’ve become a Black Belt Master in Free But Effective Biz Tool Kung Fu.
(OK, I made up the black belt).
I do believe that every small business owner, tiny start-up or passionate kitchen table entrepreneur deserves a chance to grow without having to sell their only child.
One logical step (I call them Biz Cookies!) after the other.
That’s why I’ve put together this growth-hacking class for you.
To get you started. For free.
In this short course, I’m gonna show you some of my favorite free tools and strategies to help you:
- Systematically start growth-hacking your small business. TODAY.
- So that you can see results. SOON.
Since absorbing without implementing is completely useless, I like to keep my lectures short and to the point.
That’s kinda like “growth-hacking through reaching micro-goals”.
Have fun watching, implementing and growing your small business!

Welcome to youtube channel growth /SEO
YouTube SEO (search engine optimization) YouTube marketing is one of the easiest ways to get highly targeted traffic, but you have to do it right.
The problem is that ranking on YouTube isn’t as easy as it was back in 2005, or even 2010.
On top of that, there are tons and tons of different marketing strategies out there online. Many of these work and many of them have faded away.
Methods have changed and so has YouTube’s algorithm.
Understanding what keywords are in demand and how to properly optimize your video BEFORE you make it live is what will help YouTube know where to categorize your video.
With this step by step course you will learn the most updated SEO strategies that you must do before you make your YouTube videos live.
Some Topics covered:
Introduction to YouTube SEO
Your Title and Description
Video File Optimization
Secret Tip to Outrank Your Competitors
a lot of changes for YouTube content. Whether it’s demonetization, COPPA restrictions, or any number of unexpected changes, YouTubers need to be more business-minded than ever. One of the least mastered YouTube skills is SEO - search engine optimization. At the core of the platform, YouTube is a search giant. People are looking for answers, and your content probably answers it. BUT, if you’re not effectively making your content searchable - how are they going to find you? Here’s why you need to be working on your SEO and how to SEO can be a gamechanger for your YouTube Videos!
What is YouTube SEO?
There is a common belief that YouTube is a platform for video creators. While there is partial truth in that, YouTube is ultimately a search engine akin to its parent company, Google. YouTube’s aim isn’t necessarily about helping video creators be successful as much as it is about serving content that people are looking for. Most creators start with an idea of what they want to answer when they create their video. That same thought process can be used to optimize your content for search aka YouTube SEO. SEO is using the tools available to you to make sure that when people search, they find what you’re creating.
Will YouTube SEO make you successful?
YouTube SEO will NOT, on its own, make you successful. However, what it will do is provide you with more and more opportunities to become successful. The more your content is surfaced when people search, the more likely people will watch. Then, as your content continues to be consumed, it signals to YouTube that you answer the question people are asking, further pushing your video up in search results. With each video that people enjoy and watch, the more trust that YouTube’s recommendation engine will put in your content. But, none of these things are possible if people can’t find your content. So, you see how SEO can help make you successful.
How can you implement YouTube SEO?
There are some simple technical things you can do to start implementing YouTube SEO. These things take a bit of time to master, but as you start to do them, they will become second nature to you.
