Groove’s customer service platform almost died in the introductory stage because they forgot to listen to their customers. They drew people in with a product they assumed would be a hit and pushed forward without taking in customer feedback.

Total digital ad spending worldwide exceeds $450 billion. By 2024, that figure will rise to $645 billion.
