From 1848-1855, close to 300,000 gold-seekers invaded California in search of glory. Many missed their opportunity, but some miners managed to make a fortune during the California Gold Rush. Big data analytics could be gold for small businesses looking for their big break. Through data mining, companies can learn about their clients’ preferences (what they like and what they don’t), and create marketing campaigns and user experiences that best match those preferences. Listed below are some advantages of data mining, and in a few small steps you can give your business an intelligent advantage over your competitors.
