I'm trying really hard to comment on this, because I have a few points to make, but I'm actually afraid of being bullied. Not even joking. Therein lies the rub with SM mob mentality. It's never black and white. Bullying wears all kinds of masks. The worst bullying (IMHO) is that which is couched in "legitimacy".

But, but, but...you're comparing oranges and apples here, Howie. Segmentation (which is really what "Little Data" is) is exactly what you outline here. An excellent way to break down your client base to determine *exactly* who's doing what so you can create more personalized marketing efforts aimed directly at their pain points. But that's NOT what Big Data is. Big Data, by it's very definition, is a massive quantity of information, so large as to be impossible to mine using traditional analysis. But, you can't have Little Data without Big Data. You can't segment without having your initial data sets from which to segment from. Yes? So, how can one be better than, or worth more, or more legit, than the other?

SUCH a great point re: The FAB (Features-Advantages-Benefits) statements game. Buyers don't want to be talked at. They want to *think* they've figured something out for themselves! LOL By subtly inserting Bob's finer traits into your content, Rich, you kinda-sorta "subliminal messaging'ed" them. So smart, and a fantastic case study.
