Eliminating practices that don’t work. Obtaining a perfect batting average is the blessing of few, and that’s not because most marketers don’t work, but rather because they don;t have a clean insight on what they’re doing.

Don’t spell their name wrong and be sure to type it how they type it (e.g. Problogger, not Pro Blogger).
