The 2013 ASI conference spans April 17-20 at Hotel Contessa, located on San Antonio’s historic river walk.
The workshop, “Your 21st Century Marketing Strategy,” expands on a presentation Paul co-hosted with Steven Ingle of WordCo at the same industry conference in San Diego in 2012. While Paul and Steven focused on how to develop client relationships, Paul is expanding the focus to include planning and preparation in marketing through a three hour workshop.
