So how can you find a good resource for such information?
Nowadays near anyone can just edit the file’s properties or the paper’s content, change one timestamp to another without bothering to check whether this information is still true. In the content wars everything is permitted, isn’t it? This is the way that numbers migrate from reports dating years back straight into papers officially written just yesterday, if not today.
One great resource I found very helpful on this matter is Coupon Machine’s real-time mobile data statistics. Here are some examples of valuable data that is possible to track there:
- Nearly 4 million selfies are taken every hour worldwide.
- Every hour 25 thousand Grabtaxi rides are ordered from mobile devices.
- Samsung sells 4 million…
- …while Apple sells 618 thousand smartphones every day.
- 2 billion Instagram pictures are uploaded from mobile devices every month.
- 22 million songs are downloaded from iTunes every day.
- 96 new apps and games are submitted to the App Store.
- 4 million terabytes – that’s the monthly global video traffic.
How can you use this data?
Well, that strongly depends on your own creativity. For example, you can write great and insightful reports with facts that will surely be impactful. Or you can compare companies and different business segments, in order to see what are their similarities and differences. Or, if you’re a young entrepreneur, use this data to plan your perfect business strategy – everything is possible, to a great extent. Thanks to Coupon Machine team.
In the modern world, he who dares – wins. Grab every opportunity, think through what it has to offer and apply it to the best of your knowledge. Never be shy to ask advice from someone more experienced than yourself and always strive to have at your reach the most accurate and fresh data available. For instance, real-time data is what I personally believe in. It’s like the pulse of the informational world. Seeing numbers grow like these somehow makes you want to grow too and give your own projects an extra boost.
