    Great one Srikanth !

    I was just searching about Growth Hacking tools and google pushed me towards this article and you have made it pretty clear and simple. And I believe that Growth is always a discipline which comes by merging the data with few of these tools mentioned above with legit user feedback and gracefully solving the user issues with good design by measuring and testing different combinations of these tools.

    Thanks 🙂
