AVINASH KAUSHIK INTERVIEWED BY ANALYTICS 2.0

One week ago I interviewed Avinash Kaushik about some hot topics of the Web Analytics Industry.

Avinash – 80% of my efforts should be focussed on delivering towards the company’s bottomline. Everything needs to pass that filter. It comes from the hardships I had to go through in my early jobs.

AVINASH IN THE EARTH OF TANGO

It’s been so long since I’ve interviewed Avinash in this blog (Actually the blog was called damia.com.ar in that time).
