For the nternet financial platform 30% of users per month promotion is not considered growth

what’s growth? All the growth without effective user growth is a rogue!

note: This article originates from my GrowingIO data driven growth Conference – Beijing Railway Station sharing written.

one, what is growth?

for the Internet financial platform, what is called "growth"? Is there an increase in the number of users 30% per month?

1, starting with the two question,

What does

effective user growth speak about?
