After Pulse: Audience Segmentation

Posted on Monday, Oct 28, 2019

Mary and PJ recap their conversation with SJ and Jesse, diving further into where personas fit into a DevRel strategy as well as how to acknowledge when the data you’re finding doesn’t reflect the ideas represented in your strategy.

In this episode of Community Pulse, our hosts are joined by Sarah-Jane Morris, Founder of Listen Community Consulting, and Jesse Davis, Executive VP of Product and Technology at Devada, to talk about audience segmentation and how it plays into building a sustainable DevRel strategy.
