'We're cleaning up the mess': Publishers prepare for a post-autoplay world | RJI links | Scoop.it

Hey, is this valuable?

Brian Steffens's insight:

"Instead of looking at analytics and trying to infer what people want – ask them. Instead of spending a lot of time building some product or putting together some package – ask if this is of interest. You can't do this 100% of the time, because – one more startup quote – "people don't know what they want until you show it to them." But you can do it ~20% of the time to great effect saving time and money."
