You’ve probably noticed it looks a little different around here.
The look of the site has changed, clearly. It’s a lot less blue.
But more importantly, we’ve made a big effort to simplify the website and make it easier to get around. As we’ve grown a lot over the past 3+ years, little bits were added here and there, and it was starting to get a bit jumbled.
So we’ve streamlined. Here are some highlights of the website changes.
1. We’ve combined the web site and the blog. The tips, articles, and resources on our blog are some of our most popular pages, but a link to “blog” doesn’t always capture that. So we’ve made those articles front and center.
2. We’ve made a lot of our free offerings easier to get. You used to have to sign up separately for each webinar recording. Now you can sign up just once, and get access to all our recordings.
3. We’ve just plain cleaned up the navigation. Drop-down menus, a sidebar with popular pages and functions, and fewer duplicate pages should make everything much easier to find. We’re still working on the Workshop section, but hope to have that updated soon.
We’re also making some changes to our consulting services that will help us grow and still be able to give you great service and continue to offer new workshops, webinars, and resources:
1. We’re simplifying how we administer consulting. We used to ask for a deposit, then do monthly billing. Now we’re just keeping it simple. You can pre-purchase one consultation or four (at a discount). Just pick what you need. Not sure what you need? Start small, and you can always add on. If your organization requires an exception, just contact us.
2. I am offering consulting only. I realize when a lot of people say consulting, they mean doing projects as a contractor. I have offered both services, and always made a distinction between projects and consulting–guiding you through analyses you’re doing yourself by helping you choose appropriate analyses, explaining how to conduct them, and helping with interpretation.
Although I love getting my hands dirty with data, my true love, (and I honestly believe my true gift and the best way to serve you) is through understanding where you’re stuck, asking the right questions, and getting you unstuck by explaining what you’re not understanding.
There are a lot of good data analysts, but not a lot of good statistical consultants. So I am going to limit myself to what I do best, and personally offer only consulting services. Learn more about my consulting services here.
3. BUT, I also realize there is great need for many researchers to hand off their data analysis. So I have partnered with two expert freelance data analysts so you’re not left without the data analysis project services.
So with pride, I introduce Dr. Jane Yank and Dr. Maike Rahn, who will be available to run your analyses for you. Jane and Maike have different backgrounds in their areas of research, statistical expertise, and the statistical software they use. This will greatly expand the types of analyses and software we’re able to assist with. Learn more about Jane and Maike and how to work with them on our Statistical Project Services page.
