Pulling out problems before they grow into little shops of horrors

Last year I started an area for native wildflowers and shrubs. The past few weeks I noticed some new plants growing there, but outside the specific spots I planted in. I tried to identify them but they were too young. Fast-forward to about a week ago. While out on a...

"Tamales for sell. Tamales."

While out this weekend, I heard the local tamale guy yelling. He or the women who works with him are out now and then with a push cart selling tamales. They're both loud enough that you can hear them a quarter mile away. The first time I heard them, I...

Measuring cohort membership

A customer from Repeat Customer Insights was asking me about customer cohorts: Wanted to understand if in repeat cohorts, customers in the total vertical column are unique or not? So, would the same customer be counted twice if they're-ordered in another month? The Customer Orders by Cohort report is measuring...

End of the quarter backup time

Taking data snapshots to make the future brighter

Yesterday the sun came out enough so I snapped a handful of garden photos. Not for Instabooktweet cred, for tracking. For the past year on the equinox and solstices (or close to them), I take reference photos of the sunlight locations. It's been cloudy and rainy here so I've had...

Are holiday customers dormant or gone?

We have a side yard that's difficult to grow in. Last year I planted a variety of things and only two survived. The area gets lots of sun in late spring and summer but nothing in other seasons so many of the perennial plants struggle. It sucks to put things...

Breaking down customer acquisition sources for each cohort

Knowing where customers come from is important for customer analysis. When you know which sources create quality customers, you can shift more resources to them and away from low-quality sources. Repeat Customer Insights will now analyze and breakdown which acquisition sources lead to customers on a per-cohort basis. This will...
