If only the leaders of our democracy were educated in marketing research, we could have the guarantee that they will study the Data Insights after every election.

DON’T BE CHEAP!
Imagine that you work in the marketing team of Crocs, and have partnered with pop star Post Malone to design your latest line of shoes. The line is released and is sold out almost immediately.
