Salloum, is the founder of Mobile Growth Academy, an online platform in Silicon Valley that offers entrepreneurs video tutorials and how-to's on acquiring users and growing their businesses.
In this video Salloum addresses the common pitfalls in marketing and advises entrepreneurs to obsess over three particular elements in order to acquire more users and retain them.
The first of these is tapping into the existing communities, using the example of Whatsapp.

He also stresses on retention, positioning and the types of messages that are required to adopt a good marketing strategy.
