Jennifer LeClaire calls the Aquent partnership "brilliant"
Jennifer LeClaire, a well-respected reporter for The NewsFactor Network who has worked in the past for the AP and the New York Times, and who is a web analytics author herself, picked up the news about the Analytics Demystified/Aquent partnership on her site AnalyticsInsider.
Regarding the partnership, LeClaire has this to say:
“Eric is on to something here. I knew it would only be a matter of days after leaving Visual Sciences that he would strike a partnership of some sort, but I didn’t see this one coming. This is brilliant, what with the online job search space growing and talent crunches making it more difficult for recruiters to find superstar employees becoming a long-term reality in many industries.”
I have a tremendous amount of respect for Jennifer and her knowledge of the sector as a reporter is top-notch so this compliment hits home. When the folks at Aquent first approached me about the idea I had the same response Jennifer did — there are far too many companies struggling to get appropriate staff in-house and up-and-running for our industry to really take off in the direction it needs to go (in my humble opinon.)
I view the opportunity to work with Aquent as a big step towards correcting the problem. Our combined clients will get the benefit of working with two industry leaders to build out their internal web analytics expertise.
Thanks for the nod, Jennifer.
