DRIVING INSANE GROWTH WITH CONTENT LOOPS

MRKTRS Newsletter 55 - Casey Winters

Casey Winters has a decent track record, leading growth marketing at big names like Grubhub and Pinterest.

➡️Joined Grubhub: 30k users and 15 employees.
✲ Sprinkle some Winters SEO and content magical dust ✲
$10 billion public company with 3m users and 1,000 employees.

➡️Joined Pinterest: 200 people and 40m active users. Growth was tapering off.
✲ Drop some Winters content looping cherries on top ✲
$12 billion valuation. Second wave of growth. 200m users. 

Winter’s focus on Content Loops is what has paid dividends:

In his exclusive interview with First Round, Winters makes the case for driving growth through a content loop, comparing it with other models and walking through how he successfully applied this approach to scale GrubHub and Pinterest.

He outlines what worked and what didn’t, unveiling the 5-step process he followed and sharing three more advanced strategies for the early-stage startup looking to build a plan for steep and sustainable growth.
