If you are immersed in Growth and business growth this 2020, it is mandatory that you know what Growth Loops are the latest innovation in this field.
Growth loops are a new growth model that emerges as an alternative to the conventional AARRR metric. These metrics end up being watertight from each other and end up losing the sense of their main objective. Loops work as growth loops where the attraction of a user in any of the phases brings others with it; in this way, the efficiency of the actions is much higher.
Loops are in tune with North Metric, that is, with the maximum objective of an organization. What it achieves is that absolutely all the actions carried out within any department of the organization do not lose the focus of what is really important, which is always to achieve sales.
