Just a quick personal note to let you all know I’ve landed a new job. I’ve decided to join the team at WebShare, an online marketing and web analytics firm based in Phoenix. I’ve known the owners, David and Corey, for a while and am excited to join their outstanding team.
In their own words:
We help businesses get in front of an online audience, convert visitors into customers, and use accurate measurement and intelligent analysis to drive decisions.
They manage paid search, they do usability and design work, they do website testing and they’ve been developing tools that utilize the GA and AdWords API.
The common theme through all of their services is analytics. Everyone at WebShare is completely analytics driven. And it’s not just Google Analytics. WebShare will use whatever tool you throw at them. And then they’ll suck the data out and use JMP or SPSS to really dig in. It’s this transition from standard web analytics to web intelligence that is exciting. While it’s not for everyone I’ve seen more and more organizations start to apply BI techniques to their web analytics efforts.
Don’t get me wrong, they’re a pretty big force in the world of Google Analytics and have have helped some major brands make the jump to GA. I’ll still get my GA fix but am excited to learn some more advanced things. :)
I’ll be doing a little bit of everything at WebShare. I’m going to help with all things analytics, from guiding implementation projects, to doing data analysis, to providing feedback on software development efforts. I’m also looking forward to advancing how many of our clients look at web analytics by speaking at more events.
With whatever time I have left over, I’ll continue to hit the road and teach Google Analytics & Website Optimizer Seminars for Success. In fact, I’ll be in Dallas next week with my new co-worker Julie doing a GA and WO event .
I’d like to personally thank everyone who took the time to send me an email, tweet, comment, telegram, carrier pigeon and smoke signal wishing me well. :) I really appreciate it, and it’s one of the things I love about the web analytics community. This is a pretty tight group that really supports one another.
