Several forms of effort are required to make a funnel work. A funnel cannot stand alone. It has to be supported by several cross-functional skills (for a T-shaped growth hacker). Those surveyed indicated that their efforts can be much more effective.


Growth funnel experts indicated that their efforts are mostly spent on the design and automation aspects of the funnel. However, they indicated that the more efforts are put into pure optimization, the more comfortable and confident they would be about their funnels. This is where no-code and low-code speed up and lower the cost and time inputs. This gives funnels a better chance of being better optimized.
