I have the honor of speaking at two awesome conferences in Raleigh this week.

High Five ConferenceThe first is High Five. The conference sponsored by the Triangle AMA is focused on the intersection of marketing and creative. Do yourself a favor and check out the hashtag #High5 on Twitter and Instagram. You can also check out a cool content hub designed by Arik Abel for the event. It’s on a platform called Everest Live. Awesome content from thought leaders such as Joseph Jaffe, Rohit Bhargava, Lane Becker, Spike Jones and Jeni Herberger.

Today I’ll be speaking about the importance of retention. I’ll be highlighting some of the findings from my first book, What’s Your Purple Goldfish – 12 Ways to Win Customers and Influence Word of Mouth. You can download the book for free until midnight PST on 2/27 by clicking here.
