Think about it. People often say one thing and do something else. That is why using explicit data (the ones you ask on your forms) should not be taken at face value. It’s a great way to start,m. But eventually, you have to move past that and rely on implicit data like behaviors.

Over the next few 1MMVs, I’ll go over 4 ways you can slice-and-dice your contacts. You can use this in email marketing, both ppc and social ads, and even for chatbots.
