Data is the most valuable resource in the world right now, more valuable than oil. Brands need to use data to make decisions. Data has the ability to make or break a company. Public data is that is willingly given by your customers without any form of solicitation is very valuable to the brand. It gives important insights into how the customer perceives the product and how it helps in his daily routine.

This data is more valuable than any market research because it is genuine and addresses specific issues that the customer has when using the product or addressing a problem in their lives.
