    Great meetup last night. Sorry I had to cut out a little early to take care of my 4 week old, but the first point you made was so critical. You need to listen first (aka, use measuring tools) to understand who your customers are. I see too often that businesses will market to what "they think" their customers are, but the reality is, the data is there to show you. Read/listen first and then develop the strategy.

    Awesome job, will miss these in person meetups but excited for the new change up in them.
