Yehoshua is one of the rare public figures in the digital analytics circuit who practices what he preaches. His efforts at outreach and education through his blog and his public speaking are only paralleled by his meticulousness and attention to detail in everything he does.
— Simo Ahava, Senior Data Advocate at Reaktor and Google Developer Expert for Google Analytics
I’ve always envied Yehoshua because he has the know-how and experience to turn complex data collection and processing setups into actual, actionable reports and insight. There are many of us out there who know how to tinker and code, but only a few such as Yehoshua, who can combine technical mastery with the type of data-informed leadership that growing a business AND helping others do the same necessitates.
Yehoshua’s work and professional presence are superlative – he excels in technical knowledge and execution. He is a consummate communicator, able to bridge gaps with developers, stakeholders, project managers and end-users with equal fluidity. Above all Yehoshua cares about outcomes – his investment in our success has been evident from the beginning. His drive to see us realize the most from our investment is ever-present througout the projects he engages on. His humor, patience and persistance and genuine passion for his work make him a true standout in the profession
— Deb Kearney, Web Analytics Specialist at Gartner
In a single word, Yehoshua is phenomenal. We first worked together while I was VP Marketing at Savored, when he helped us to configure our Google Analytics in a capacity that was literally game-changing to our understanding of our product efficiency as well as our business. Since then, I have contracted him to do the same for HighTable.com as well as for several other companies where I am an adviser, and will continue to do so in the future.
— Cassie Lancellotti-Young, former VP Marketing at Savored
Yehoshua’s key point of difference from other contractors is that he does not simply execute against a directive; rather, he takes your “wish list” and does extensive diligence to familiarize himself with your business and to devise a robust plan of action from there that will far exceed anything you’ll come up with on your own. His recommendations are thoughtful, value-adding, and high impact. Further, he’s willing to take the time to follow up with you to discuss analysis methods, etc. I cannot recommend Yehoshua’s services highly enough.
From our first interaction, it was evident Yehoshua was an expert in web analytics with a keen business sense. His ideas and solutions were always expressed clearly and with precision. He provided the right amount of detail making them easy to understand and implement. Yeshoshua became my go to person with any question regarding Google Analytics and how to best use it to truly understand our site and traffic. His in depth understanding of Google Analytics proved to be invaluable. He provided expertise on all areas: events, custom variables, virtual pageviews, site search, segmentation, filters, subdomain tracking, third party domain tracking, general set up, and more. With him on board, I was confident there was a knowledgeable resource always available to us. Throughout the year, we frequently brainstormed and discussed problems and solutions.
— Erika Murtha, former Quantitative Marketing Business Analyst at Zagat
Not only did his expertise in Google Analtyics shine, but his intelligence and understanding of our business and goals did as well. He was quick to offer up various solutions always taking into consideration our business goals and obstacles. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Yehoshua. His demeanor was kind, intelligent, engaging, and profesional. I learned a great deal from him, and believe he is an asset to anyone in need of web analytics.
We hired Yehoshua to implement technical requirements for which we did not have the in-house skills to do so. He has exceeded our expectations by being a strategic thought partner and really pushing our analytics in new directions. All of his contributions have been hugely appreciated by not only my analytics team but numerous stakeholders throughout our organization who have more insights to drive their business decisions.
— Courtney Phillips, Director of Digital Analysis at Teach For America
Yehoshua’s name says it all – He is a true analytics ninja. I’ve been consistently impressed with not only Yehoshua’s understanding of Google Analytics (which is incredibly deep), but also by his ability to break down complex topics into actionable insights that clients and internal team members alike can understand and act on. Yehoshua delivers consistently excellent work on time, to spec, and at budget, and he always goes above and beyond what he has promised. Moreover, he is incredibly personable, communicates effectively with clients, and isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and really dive in to a project.

— Todd Garland, Founder of BuySellAds.com
I have had the pleasure of working with Yehoshua over the past year. As you might expect from someone who calls himself a “ninja”, he’s a master at what he does. His understanding of Google Analytics runs incredibly deep, yet he has the unique skill of making that knowledge accessible to the uninitiated. His ability to communicate his knowledge in a manner that almost anyone can understand has impressed me greatly. He is hard-working, personable, communicates effectively and consistently demonstrates a concern for meeting the needs of the client, expressed or not.
— Michael Auzenne, Co-Founder of Manager Tools
