- “There’s some sort of confidence that comes with once you know the numbers, then you feel more confident to move forward…”
- “Get really specific about the questions you want answered, and then specifically go look for the answer to that.”
- “Focus on that one little piece and really dig into that, rather than trying to look at all your site traffic because that’s not really where insightful metrics come from…”
