Consolidation: Depth of Knowledge for April 2015

Depth of Knowledge Newsletter
Volume 3.3
April of 2015

Hey Friend of Jeffalytics!

April was a month of breakthroughs for me. Breakthroughs in content consistency. Breakthroughs in seeing things more clearly. Breakthroughs in my direction as a marketer.

We saw many positive gains, and made some difficult decisions… the most difficult decision was in consolidating several website projects back into Jeffalytics. I found operating multiple websites too difficult (who would have imagined??!?) and this choice will help me stay focused in the long run.

Of course, I still managed to keep a pulse on some of the new tools coming to digital marketers and analysts. Here are some items that I found particularly interesting during the month of April.

Analytics Tool Watch

Here are some analytics tools that I have come across since we last spoke. Some of these are startups, while others have been around for years. By linking in this newsletter I am not personally endorsing these tools.

  • GA Config Tool (gaconfig.com) – I came across this tool from Raven earlier in the month and asked myself how I could have missed it?
  • Analytics SEO (analyticsseo.com) – An analytics platform for your SEO data with a (not provided) solution.
  • iPassExam (ipassexam.com) – Study guide for marketing certification tests.
  • Metrics Co (metricsco.com) – Analytics platform for subscription services (think software as a service).

More Cool Tools and Startups

All Analytics and no play makes Jeff a dull boy. Here are some interesting business startups and tools that I have recently come across that I thought you might enjoy.

  • GoodUI (goodui.org) – A reminder of the elements that go into a good user interface.
  • Atomic Reach (atomicreach.com) – Companion app for writers to improve content quality.

One post per week, all of high quality. Things are going well with Jeffalytics. I am still behind on guest posting, but then again that is usually supplemental.

On the other hand, I made the tough decision that it was too difficult to have two blogs talking about digital marketing (one tactical and one strategic), so I am making the difficult decision to fold Knowledge Land back into Jeffalytics.

This will be a gradual process, with articles being moved over first, then other aspects. When all is done, I will have a new homepage, theme and even sunnier outlook for Jeffalytics. Stay tuned!
