My number 1 takeaway

What’s the single most important step from our discussion that our listeners need to take away and implement in their businesses?

Really know who the right person is. Define that person not just by keywords, but know their interests, their job title, what kind of companies they work for. You’ve really got to know who you’re trying to get in front of, and have a very accurate picture of who that person is – that way you can make sure that you’re getting your stuff in front of the right person.
