As the old saying goes: “The more you ask, the more you know.”

Show Notes

This episode's guest loves questions! Michele Ronsen, founder of Curiosity Tank, explains in detail how to understand your brand’s audience through really simple yet very effective probing techniques. While there is no substitute for firsthand data, according to Michele, secondary research can reveal a lot of information about your customers as well, without having to personally ask them.
