There is a good book on this called “Traction” by Gabriel Weinberg (the founder of DuckDuckGo) where he outlines 19 “channels” for getting traction [1]. I’ve also seen the guy from FPU [2] do a good job at extending this list.

Also, why is nobody focusing on unsuccessful “growth strategies”? I’ve often learned more from people who failed at something and told me 10 things to be aware of vs. someone who succeeded and didn’t recognize the role luck played in their success.

Unsuccessful "growth strategies"? I will look into that !
