The best Pirate Marketing Tools to grow your business (Startup, Agency, Muse…)


My name is Julian Ivaldy, I'm 21 years old and I've been working on marketing & growth for 5 years now. After co-founding a digital side-business studio and an import-export company, I am now Co-Founder & Head of Growth at The Secret Company, a startup studio with a pirate mindset, secret co-founders of 10 startups. Over the past two years, my role at The Secret Company has been to develop our businesses through growth and marketing actions. I learned many strategies, found many resources, and most importantly used many tools. In less than 20 months, I helped 10 companies to develop their business from 0 to 10 M€ ARR. This allowed me to draw up a list of the best pirate marketing tools that I tested & validated to develop your business (Startup, SME, Muse…). In this article, I want to share all the best tools I've discovered over the past 2 years, how to use them, and at what stage. Do you have a recommendation? You're probably familiar with the term "funnel." Marketing funnels are very useful to help you visualize the path customers take from the discovery of your brand to conversion.

The metaverse is coming. Cathy Hackl explains why we should care.


You may have heard of the metaverse -- but let's be honest: do you really know what that means? If you're unsure, you're not alone: The metaverse is hard to pinpoint. It doesn't even have a definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Cathy Hackl, tells Freethink. A "Chief Metaverse Officer," Hackl is a professionally trained futurist and strategist, who has worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Magic Leap, and HTC VIVE, and helps brands understand how this new paradigm will affect their businesses. If you think of Web 1.0 as the internet that connected us to information, and Web 2.0 as the social-media iteration, which connects people, Web 3.0 (which we're now entering) is connecting people, places, and things, says Hackl. "Sometimes, these people, places, and things can be in a fully virtual or synthetic environment, or they could be in a physical world with some level of augmentation," she said.

How to get Google to remove image search results of minors


Exerting any amount of control over the internet seems impossible, but Google has finally thrown a lifeline to frustrated families. On Wednesday, Google announced that minors (or their parents or guardians) can request that their pictures be removed from image searches. Google announced that it would do this in August, but now there's a way to actually get it done. Companies or scammers may scrape social media accounts and then re-purpose those pictures to create fake online identities, or for other unauthorized uses. Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen recently asserted that Instagram knowingly jeopardizes the mental health of young women.

An Introduction to Federated Learning


We all have experienced the benefits of crowdsourcing. In mobile apps such as Waze, clients using the platform can report all sorts of driving conditions such as car crashes, traffic jams, police speed traps, cars parked on the side of the road, etc. In turn, other users of the platform can take advantage of such collaboration to make better driving decisions. As a simple example, if there is an intense traffic jam on a given road, Waze might choose a different route to reach my destination. Similarly, when looking for a hotel to stay the next family holiday, we usually read multiple reviews from previous customers.

Yoti's'Age Estimation' system -- which may well soon be rolled out across social media -- can tell how old users between 6–18 are to a 1.5-year margin of error. The software works by comparing the user's facial features as captured via device camera against millions of other images of Yoti digital ID app users of known age. Social media firms such as Facebook have long struggled with how to handle minimum age verification without requests for passport details, which many see as intrusive.
