Highlights From aimClear Speaking Agenda, Q3 &4

Posted in Speaking Engagements

Online marketing is more than our profession – it’s our passion. Opportunities to learn and share know-how seem never in short supply. Each year we venture across the world to attend an array of industry events, and we return home with fresh ideas and lasting business contacts. The first half of 2010 has taken aimClear from Duluth to Portland, New York to London, Austin to Toronto, Sydney to Santa Clara– to events including  SES, SMX, SEMpdx, SXSW, and 140Conf– and we’re excited to announce our speaking schedule and conference agenda for Q3 & 4.
