Marketing in a Recession

14.018 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

I gave this presentation at Chris Brogan's New Marketing Summit in Boston, late in the fall of 2008.

The crowds went wild (at my impersonation of a brain-eating zombie).

The advice is still sound, as the economy is still in the toilet. Good luck! And let me know how I can help.
