Stats are like a Good Friend


Stats are like a really good friend. Really good friends are honest. They’ll tell you how it is or how it isn’t.

“No Stat is a Constellation”


Alright, so that’s a blatant rip off of the whole “no person is an island”, but it’s true. It’s always useful to watch statistics over time. Then you can see if they are going up or down. But it’s often necessary to compare different graphs to really see the full picture. Let’s take an example. All. . . Read More

Consultants, Don’t Waste Time! Check the Client Dashboard First.


Why else use software to help automate processes if not to save everyone’s time? And we can all agree that a consultant’s time is valuable.

Stop Guessing, Start Knowing with Stats


Using stats is the smart way to grow your business. When it comes to business and life in general, “I don’t know” isn’t all that helpful. In most cases, “I don’t know” should be an indicator that there is another step to take, and that usually involves research of some sort. Whether that is asking. . . Read More

I’ve Been Tracking all of These Business Statistics, Now What?


I know what you’re thinking. We’re a stats company so we’re supposed to say that stats are the “be all, end all”, right? Wrong. Stats are just stats. That’s why we picked the name UseMyStats.  Just “tracking” or “keeping” stats won’t do much for you. You have to use them. We conducted a survey not. . . Read More

What is a Stat, Anyway?


A “stat,” a “metric,” a “KPI.” These are all names for basically the same thing. But what is it? Statistics are pretty straightforward. A stat is a number tracked over a unit of time.
