“Confessions of a Data Salesperson”

What You Need to Know BEFORE Shopping for Data

Acquiring the data you need can be a very time-consuming and frustrating endeavor. Whether you are just scouting for new data sets, or have an immediate need for specific data, navigating the data landscape can be daunting. There are plenty of data providers selling similar data sets, but far fewer ones providing data solutions that address your unique needs.

This guide is based on my experiences over a 20+ year career in the data industry. I have been both a consumer of data and a provider of data. So I think I offer a unique perspective on the data procurement process.

I hope this guide helps you navigate the data acquisition process so you can get the highest quality data for an affordable price under friendly terms and conditions.
