Summary

The ultimate playbook to grow your startup to 100 million users

How does a startup with little funding grow to 100 million users? Cliff Lerner's online dating startup was running out of money when he bet the company's fortunes on a then unknown platform called Facebook. The app achieved explosive growth, and, soon after, the stock price skyrocketed 2,000 percent, setting off an extraordinary chain of events filled with sudden success and painful lessons.

Explosive Growth is a business book like no other. This compelling and inspiring narrative gives you a step-by-step play to achieve explosive growth and combines lively and often hilarious storytelling, proven tactics, and case studies to help your startup grow. 

Learn how to: 

  • Ignite explosive growth by creating a remarkable product 
  • Identify the only 3 metrics that matter 
  • Explore valuable viral growth strategies 
  • Execute the genius media hacks that helped us acquire 100 million users 
  • Create a thriving culture with constant innovation 

The tactics that helped us succeed are all here including insights as to how companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Bumble, Tinder, and Dropbox achieved explosive growth. Lerner uses case studies to describe how he applied the teachings from top actionable business books including The Lean Startup, The Innovator’s Dilemma, Contagious, Zero to One, Made to Stick, The One Thing, and Good to Great to help him achieve explosive growth and how you can do the same for your startup. 

This audiobook is ideal for entrepreneurs, marketing experts, startups, and CEOs looking to grow their business to millions of users.

Critic reviews

"Brilliantly crafted Explosive Growth is essential reading for every entrepreneur and leader seeking innovative solutions for their industry." (Keri Douglas, 9MuseNews.com)

"This is a great book to read. Some of the business books are a bit of a chore to read, this was one that we looked forward to reading. It is painfully honest at times, and rather than falling for the hindsight bias, that if he is successful now then surely every decision he made before was awesome. Instead he looks hard at what he did, and did not do right. It makes for a much better, much more compelling read." (Simon Cocking, Irish Tech News)

Incredibly insightful and a very easy read.

A TIMELESS GEM!
I am an avid reader of marketing, leadership, self help and business oriented books. Explosive Growth not only covered well articulated aspects of all mentioned, but did so with experiences from his own life that helped paint a very clear picture of both his victories and defeats; steering me towards the former, while avoiding the latter. I would recommend this book to anyone ranging from newcomer status to the experienced CEO.

Great read

Narrator was great, and there was a lot of interesting, useful information. Definitely recommend reading, though paying $18 for the Audio book may be a bit of a stretch. $2 on Kindle is a much better price if you're into actual reading, as well.

Great primer on business strategy

This is a great book on the founding and growth of a new company. It's quite the journey, and I think it informs you of the risks and rewards of launching your own startup.

It was a great listen during my commute, and I look forward to applying these lessons in my own life.

Nice Story

It was a nice story but that’s it. I learned nothing and it really was not exciting
