One of the key stats we monitor for envisage is New Sign Ups.
We measure this each week, you can see the graph below.
Suddenly we had 9 new accounts sign up in one week, but we had no idea why.Read More

Up is Good
Down is Bad
My version of the KISS principle is Keep It Super Simple.
I’ve written books on many complex subjects such as taxes, money management, investing and marketing. I often get feedback on how easy my books are to read. I go to great lengths to keep things simple.
The opposite of a KISS is a KICK - Keeping It Complicated Knowingly. I much prefer a KISS to a KICK.💋
Results Driven Success is the process of measuring the results of past actions to direct future actions to achieve greater success. It is used by companies around the world to improve their operations, identify areas that need attention, spot areas that are doing well to support them, and remove opinion and guess work from running an organization.Read More
Although we’ve spent over 8 years developing what we believe is the best online app for stats, envisage is only part of our overall plan. Using stats to manage your business is vital, but it requires more than just collecting numbers and creating graphs.
It requires know-how and sometimes it requires a little outside help.
The purpose of this blog is to share that know-how and help. Not just our know-how, but yours too. We want this blog to become a valuable resource and community. A go-to place for reliable information and advice that helps you in your business.Read More
Over the years I have found many small businesses trying to keep too many statistics and spending hours every week trying to keep them all up to date. One person I knew had more than 30 statistics for his one man show. It took him at least 5 minutes per week to measure and lodge each of those statistics. They were all accurate, but he felt like the business wasn't growing like it should be. Well, sure, he had beautiful admin and could tell me all sorts of things about his company, but with 30 statistics he was spending almost 3 hours a week doing this administration! 3 hours a week is a lot of time to be spending on this, especially if you are the only person in your business.Read More
Having different colours for up and down statistics is common, and nothing new.
It makes it simple to see if a chart is "going in the right direction" and is why all Envisage graphs are two toned. Black if the statistic is heading "up" in a better direction, and red if the statistic is heading "down". We chose black and red for many reasons, one of which is that red/green colour blind people can see the difference between black and red.Read More
