Recruit and optimize from under-indexed partner business models

This section provides recommendations based on partners that brands could engage with to reinforce under-indexed business models. For instance, if a brand heavily relies on partners providing coupons compared to its peers and is underutilizing content partners compared to peers, we may recommend the brand give these underutilized content partners a chance to generate revenue.
