A growth experiment template can be used to get a new growth team up and running quickly, or to inform a more custom growth marketing implementation.
We’ve collated some of our favourite below.
Growth Hacking Experiments Template by Pipefy
“Pipefy accelerates digital transformation. It is a low-code/no-code process orchestration platform that gives anyone the power to easily automate workflows and manage business processes with no coding skills required!”
The Growth Hacking Experiments Template was developed by the 500 Startups Distro Team, and inspired by Brian Balfour (ex Growth VP at HubSpot). Similar to Airtable, Trello and others, you can switch between Kanban and list-style views.
Growth Experiments Template, by Airtable
Airtable has the simplicity of Excel, with the power of a database. It is a great option for small or new growth teams that would like to get up and running quickly, safe in the knowledge that it will likely be able to cater for most future needs.

Growth Experiments Template, by Trello
Trello, now owned by Atlassian, is likely the most well-known project management tool in this list.
“Trello helps teams move work forward. Collaborate, manage projects, and reach new productivity peaks. From high rises to the home office, the way your team works is unique—accomplish it all with Trello.”https://trello.com/
The Growth Experiments Trello Board template is a typical kanban style board with 6 columns – Ideas, Prioritise, Doing, Measure, Success and Fail. The advantage to Trello is likely to familiarity you and your team already have with the tool. The disadvantage is that it may become restrictive as the number of ideas and experiments grow, and the UI can be limiting at times.
Growth Experiments Template by Miro
Miro is “the online collaborative whiteboard platform to bring teams together, anytime, anywhere”.
The Growth Experiments Template is a very basic Kanban-style board but lacks the database functionality of many other solutions in this list and so it’s use it extremely limited.

The Growth Hacking Experiment Sheet is essentially a pre-built Google Sheet to help keep track of growth marketing experiments. It contains separate sheets for idea ranking, individual experiments outlines and an overview of all experiments. Although the sheet is very well considered and covers all the elements required in detail teams may find the UX and UI constraints of working with Google Sheets rather limiting.
Google Sheets Test Template by Growth Minded

Growth Experiments Template by Infinity
Infinity, Stackby and Airtable share a lot of similarities, all of them combining advanced database and workflow management functionality.
“One Tool to Organise All Your Work, Your Way. Work together with your team, store everything in one place and organise projects the way you want.”https://startinfinity.com/
The growth experiments template enables viewing ideas and experiments by funnel stage, category or status, and provides very similar functionality to the Airtable template above in terms of fields, attributes, commenting and activity logs.
Growth Hacking Experiments Template by Stackby
Stackby is a no-code workflow management solution, very similar to Airtable and Infinity.
“One work platform with endless possibilities. Keep your data, teams and workflows in sync with flexible spreadsheet style databases. Create, collaborate and automate anything, really. No coding or training needed.”https://stackby.com/about
Despite the similarities with Airtable and Infinity, the Stackby Growth Hacking Experiments Template is not as well developed. Infinity or Airtable are better solutions unless you have a specific reason to use the Stackby platform.
