We divided our marketing model into sections like Achievable Marketing Goals, SWOT Analysis, Buyer Personas, A/B Testing, and Measurable Key Metrics and both of us somewhere knew that in coming days, we will have to leverage the power of data-  Customer Data, Competitor Data, Internal Data, and External data and only then we will be reaching somewhere close to a heightened customer engagement.
