Hi, I am Darrell Williams
Who am I?
I am a digital marketing expert, but more specifically, I am a growth hacker. I have a decade of experience launching and scaling companies.
A growth hacker’s primary goal is to produce substantial business growth in a short time on small budgets or no budget at all in many cases.
Here is a visual of some skills that pertain to growth hacking:
I gathered my array of skills from Silicon Valley startup companies and large digital marketing agencies.
The road was tough, but I have accomplished the following during the years.
- Helped UC San Diego raise 1 billion dollars.
- Helped launch and scale multiple companies to 7-8 figures annually some even 7-8 figures monthly.
- Trained countless individuals.
And much more…
I wasn’t always a growth hacker training multiple people and generating sizable revenue for companies. My story starts in San Francisco.
I traveled to San Francisco on a Greyhound bus from the east coast. At the time, I had $2,000 dollars, that it.
I traveled to the bay area after college to be surrounded by the best and brightest minds in the tech world.
$2,000 dollars does not go far in San Francisco. I was under pressure to find a job before my funds ran out.
Unfortunately, it took me longer than expected to land a role since I didn’t have any experience being fresh out of college.
I use to stay in hostels while I was job searching. Many times I had to choose between housing or food for the day.
My family had no clue about the struggles I endured. Embarrassed, depressed, self-doubting, I’ve been there.
I spent most of my days in the San Francisco public library applying to jobs and reading to expand my knowledge every day.
For 3 months this was my life. I had no direction on a specific field within tech. I would read about topics that I naturally gravitated towards in the San Francisco public library which included:
- UX design
After learning how to build websites I approached local business owners to set up WordPress websites to make money. I made enough to eat daily and pay for extra days in the hostel.
At the time I didn’t realize I was educating myself in the foundational skills of growth hacking also known as growth marketing. The term growth hacking didn’t even exist at the time.
My life changed when I finally landed an entry-level position at a small startup.
I quickly learned how startups made something out of nothing. I learned how startups automated business through the use of inexpensive software.
The rest was history. I leveled up pretty fast and started to experience a great deal of success with digital marketing. I learned how to scale blogs and websites fast.
It is always darkest before the dawn. Whatever your battles are, I am here to inspire you and guide you to business success. Don’t make excuses. Make plans.
My plan was simple, even with all the hard times I experienced before my success.
I followed the G.R.O.W mindset to gain success in the digital marketing industry.
G.R.O.W stands for:
- Goals – What do I want to accomplish?
- Reality – How feasible are my goals?
- Obstacles – What roadblocks do I foresee?
- Will power – How can I push past the roadblocks?
I still live by those four principles, and they have never led me wrong.
