Any advice on KPIs tied to product launches?

I recommend taking a three-pronged approach when it comes to collecting data for ICP. 1) Do the q......Read More
I’d keep an eye on all the indicators - leading and lagging. For leading, do your campaign metrics indicate that people are interested and engaged? How is this helping you fill your funnel?
