brand: QUALITY VS. QUANTITY - 06/16/10 06:56 AM
 The quantity of qualified buyers is more important than the quantity of buyers overall.
Why is it important to know this? Think about your marketing. Would you rather invest your time and money marketing to 10,000 possibilities, or 1000 probabilities? Would it be more effective to touch those 10,000 people once….or those 1000 people 10 times?
