There is perhaps no industry that has taken to big data like a fish to water as much as marketing. It seems that every marketing tool from social media scheduling to content management solutions to email automation is making use of big data. The reason is very simple: the best Advertising has always relied on measured data. Now, big data makes the acquisition and analysis of that data easier and cheaper.

Data-based marketing is not new. This type of marketing is called “direct response marketing” and has existed for over a century. In fact, John Caples’ classic Tested Advertising Methods was first published in 1932!
