The Moral Confusion around Big Data

Improvement of your business is hard to come by in times like these. Unless you have a major funding source, a sizeable investment, or an already well-established fast selling brand, making a satisfactory ROI is always difficult.

It has always been that way.

However, just like the internet gave SMEs an impetus, a new technology, based around the internet, is making life better for many. But you may think that big data is a normally morally contentious. That is one of the major confusions creating a great deal of hindrance to the progress of big data usage. But if you have been a fan of direct marketing, direct approaching, and transparent prospecting, big data can only do good to help you.

So let's see where the once all-American small business idea is going wrong by avoiding big data...

  • Firstly, it's people who do bad things - not technology
  • Secondly, you need to be compliant with multiple privacy laws just to stay in business
  • Thirdly, using big data in a sly way never works for business (might for the Guv, though)!

And besides, big data can be a real push for small businesses struggling to find loyal customers. And that's what they need the most.

While the Orwellian world is already here, it's up to you to mold how the new technology will benefit individuals, families, and enterprises. Big Brother is the only bad character born out of it, isn't it? Private people, using solicited data, for the benefit of other private people and organizations is always worth cherishing.

So here's what's in store for the focused American businessman, Orwellian or Libertarian!

  • A facility to approach real buyers directly
  • Independent sources of contacts that sell white label data sets
  • All-in-one technology access for conducting multi-channel marketing campaigns
(all to surefire targets)

Remember, spying is one thing, and knowledge-building for succeeding in business is another!

Thought leadership comes with the responsibility of processing a particular thought to making it achieve the goals that can improve the health of an enterprise.

Is the Manufacturing Industry Disappearing?

A 2012 Huffington post for Canada read that the country witnessed 79 industrial plant shut-downs in 2011, which took away 14,000 jobs. At the pace which US manufacturing plants, with over 1000 workers, have been declining since 2011, it seems quite evident that the manufactured goods from countries like China are being purchased in large numbers and hence, the downfall of manufacturing companies.
The role-play of technology has become more prominent in countries like USA and Canada, and so, even though, the output of human labor in manufacturing has been good, machines have replaced most of it. So, since, the labor cost is being minimized this way, most manufacturing plants are closing outright and work is being shifted overseas. Though over 12 million workers are still employed in manufacturing, importing manufactured goods from other countries is only going to worsen the situation.
Laying the groundwork for a comeback
