Insert Demo Data Within 'Current User' Database Searches

I keep my data only visible to the user that created it by using “Do a Search For…” and delineating by “Created by = Current User”. I’d like to now populate these databases with demo data (for new users), however I’m already Live and have users on the system. Any creative ways to insert data in this scenario?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe creating an admin page, with inputs for adding data.
Then using the ‘Run As’ function for a specific user go to the page and add the data through the inputs.
Not certain it would work, and could be a PITA depending on the data type and amount you need to add and number of users. But I have a feeling that having the user actually create the data is the only way to populate that field
