Cross Domain Tracking with Universal Analytics.js – Google Analytics.

November 14th, 2014 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

So I know that you could go to the Google Analytics blog and simply try to understand all the information that they have to offer about how to track several domains with the same Google Analytics Profile. However, I wanted to post a simpler way to get going fast and easy with the cross domain tracking without having to spend 3 hours. Before we begin, let’s say why this is important. Let’s say that you have an e-commerce cart, and let’s say that that e-commerce cart is located in an external domain. If you implement Google analytics the normal way you’re going to end up increasing unnecessarily the referral count. More importantly those referrals are going to show as if they are coming from your own website.

So, without further adieu, let me share with you the secrets of implementing cross domain tracking in Google Analytics, specifically with the universal tracking code.

Robben perdió

June 30th, 2014 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

Ganar con trampa es perder.

En el fútbol como en cualquier área de la vida, hay reglas. Muchas veces esas reglas son explícitas y muchas veces son inherentes. En el fútbol, el reglamento de competición tiene un espíritu de protección a la competencia honesta entre dos equipos. Dos equipos quieren ganar el partido, buscando anotar más goles que los que reciben. Todo dentro del marco de un reglamento que define la competición.

Presidente de Costa Rica tendrá las manos llenas ante retos económicos del país. ¿Qué sucederá en el 2014?

January 31st, 2014 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

Las economías emergentes tiene de que preocuparse pues la Reserva Federal de Estados Unidos ha anunciado una nueva redución en su política de compra de Valores con Respaldo Hipotecario (Mortgage Backed Securities en Inglés). http://mkds.us/f1

Costa Rica cuenta con una economía de tercer mundo pero ciertamente considerada emergente y  principalmente enfocada hacia la venta de sevicios. El tipo de cambio de Costa Rica está recibiendo presión hacia la alza, o en otras palabras, presión de devaluación del colón con respecto al dólar. Cuando disminuye el valor de la moneda local, aumenta la inflación. El gobierno de Costa Rica tendrá que defender el tipo de cambio para prevenir la inflación por medio de venta de dólares de reservas (http://mkds.us/f2). De acuerdo a una nota del periódico La Nación http://mkds.us/f3, el precio del dólar, alcanzó su valor más alto en los últimos dos años. Esto es solo el comienzo de lo que está por venir. A pesar de que el Banco Central intervino vendiendo más de $5 Millones de USD, el tipo de cambio subió ¢6,55 en tan solo un día.

Moving a cPanel acount from host to host

January 28th, 2014 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

So, for this post, I am going to assume that you are having some trouble moving a cPanel account from one server to another. Usually, the problem is because certain hosting companies modify the cPanel installation and therefore once you create a backup – it doesn’t work.

This steps are going to reduce the time that you would waste trying to figure it out on your own. Read the rest of this entry »

Seiki 4K with Mac OS X – Full Res at 30hz – SOLVED

September 25th, 2013 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

The Problem with using a Seiki 4k LED Display (Ultra HD) with Mac OS X (Lion, Mountain Lion or perhaps even Mavericks).

Ok so if you are here, I am assuming that you are having the same problem that I was having. You are on a Mac, you decided to go ahead and buy the tempting Seiki 4k display and plug it to your Mac as a nice huge display. The only problem is that when you plugged it – it didn’t want to show you full 4k resolution(3840×2160) right? Don’t get alarmed you are about to fix it.

Now, if you go online, unfortunately there aren’t many people doing this kind of thing (Most are in PCs). Therefore if you were to Google a solution (like I did) you would get frustrated and angry and tired. Not to mention that you’ll invest an incredible amount of time understanding what is wrong.

Now, I am going to share with you the knowledge that my extensive research gave me – so that you don’t have to do what I did. Are you ready?

Question: Can I use my Seiki 4k Display (either 39″ or 50″) with my Mac(Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, etc) and have it display at its native resolution (3840 x 2160) at 30hz? The answer is yes. Let’s see how.

The Perfect Intro – 6 Steps to a Persuasive Elevator Pitch

August 29th, 2013 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

There are many books in marketing that talk about the elevator pitch. So why is it that the elevator pitch is actually something valuable in online marketing?

Elevator Pitch Intro
In my opinion it has to do with the fact that it allows the business owner (or the marketer) to become clear about what he is offering to the target market. In my experience, I have seen many examples of business owners that have an incredibly difficult time explaining what is the exact problem that they solve. Not to mention, that when they do explain it, its different every time.

When I help business owners come up with their elevator pitch, I have a set routine that I make them go through so that the result is a memorable (something they can memorize) paragraph that they can share with the world.

Allow me to share this routine with you. Read the rest of this entry »

Porqué Costa Rica perdió contra Honduras en la Copa Oro 2013?

July 22nd, 2013 admin Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

La respuesta corta es por falta de la estrategia correcta. El equipo costarricense utilizó una estrategia inefectiva para el oponente, una estrategia fija que no cambió desde el partido contra el equipo de Estados Unidos, y que demuestra ser poco efectiva en general. Las razones a continuación.

Estrategia de Fútbol en General.

El juego del fútbol (soccer) es una competencia en la que el equipo que gana es el que al final tiene más goles a favor que en contra. En general, en eliminatorias simples, los equipos no pueden empatar, por lo que siempre habrá un ganador. Esto es en contraste con los juegos tradicionales en los cuales el empate es un resultado válido.

En general, la estrategia correcta para eliminatorias simples es una que mejore las probabilidades de anotar goles mientras disminuya las de recibir goles.
