In the digital marketing world, the term “big data” thrown is thrown around a lot. By definition, big data is extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions.

As a small business, your data may not be classified as “big,” but it’s incredibly important to the growth of your business. Contact data, in particular, is something that small businesses need to focus on.

Without food and water, you die.  Without shelter or clothing to protect you from the elements, guess what, you die.
