Love the charts especially how you compared each stream to the visual. As a school Principal I am always trying to help my students learn that they can trade their time into more passive strategies. You earned my sub!!

I googled "retargeting Rights" because what you said about selling the rights to your audience pixels sounds absolutely FASCINATING. Unfortunately, nothing in the search results talked about selling the pixels, just all kinds of articles on how to set up retargeting. How did you get into selling the pixel rights? Do you use an ad agency to get new takers if someone cancels on you?
