“People think the market is coy and shy and that it’s always trying to make you guess what it wants, but in reality, it is NOT! The market is the exact opposite every time. It is either giving you a high five or punching you in the face every time you offer it something!” – Chris Mercer
Chris Mercer (who goes by the last name Mercer) is one of the most sought after measurement marketing experts in the world today.
