Free eMetrics Pass- Is It For You?

Open Contest Interlude

Awareness of SunyataSun Wukong

Everyone can learn something from eMetrics San Francisco, from n00bs to veterans and everyone in between could benefit from attending the conference. If you could benefit from attending, and could potentially get a pass for free, have you started your entry for the FREE eMetrics pass?

Web Analytics Association Spring Awards Gala

If eMetrics San Francisco wasn’t awesome enough, the Web Analytics Association is holding the inaugural Spring Awards Gala on the evening of March 15th to coincide with eMetrics.Web Analytics Association

This is the first one so I am really unsure what to expect; that in and of itself makes attendance basically mandatory. Both members and non-members of the WAA are welcome and will be in having a pretty darn good time.

Entire Measure Community Welcome

In discussions with some members of the community, they have expressed reservations towards entering to win the FREE eMetrics pass. Let me state it as clearly as possible:

Please enter!

I am not deleting entries based on your level of:

  • Experience
  • Technical knowledge
  • Tool specific knowledge
  • Community involvement
  • Personal brand recognition

Each entry will be judged individually relative to the entrant’s level of familiarity with web analytics. That means that if you have a little more experience, my expectation is that you would be able to submit something more advanced than a recent college grad.

Including the link to your LinkedIn profile, or another professional profile, would help your cause in either case.

  • If you are transitioning into, or work tangentially with web analytics
  • If you are a business owner/employee who wears many hats, one of them online optimization
    • I am looking forward to your entry

Leader at Halftime

At present, the contest is about as wide open as you can get. There have been, as of 10:30 am PST Friday 1/28/11 exactly ZERO entries. Tayyab Jawaid of LateRooms is the only person to even bother asking a question.


After the contest I may even post the best of the best, highlighting what I think is interesting about them. Not that it I am the authority, rather to help give some free publicity to people who really nailed it.


Tayyab asked an excellent question, he wanted to know if I would be providing feedback on the entries to the individual entrants.

If you want feedback please state clearly “FEEDBACK YES” in your submittal, if you do not want feedback please state clearly “FEEDBACK NO” in your submittal email. If you forget and leave it blank I will consider that a “FEEDBACK NO.”

My caveat is the following:

  • Feedback for entries that request it will be processed in the order which they are received

Want feedback sooner? Submit sooner.

The next post will fix the data set we have been working on in Excel, don’t forget to download the most current version here if you have not done so already.


Email me at about the contest, otherwise.

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours
    and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks
    a lot!
