It was fun speaking to the American Marketing Association in Boston today as part of their Hot Topics series. It was an honor being part of an agenda featuring Stephan Spencer, Alan-Rimm Kaufman, Neil Patel, Eric Ward, and others. My slides are posted here for Search by the Numbers.

Thanks in advance for those that order it.
