The internet is a shadow of what it used to be just a couple decades ago. In fact, we have witnessed an insane growth that most people never would have guessed would occur.

Don’t Ask Your Audience What They Want

Market research. Consumer research. Customer surveys. Focus groups. Whatever you want to call it and whatever form it takes on, the objective of this kind of research is pretty clear.
