Defined: 9 Marketing Buzzwords

By: Sagefrog

While we hear them all the time – and use them – sometimes the definition of an online marketing buzzword can elude our customers and even our co-workers.

Below are nine of the most popular online marketing buzzwords being used today and their definition – so no more need for the quick Google search when no one is looking:

  1. Content Marketing – 86% of B2C marketers and 91% of B2B marketers use content marketing in their social strategy. Content marketing consists of companies communicating effectively and providing value to consumers – largely through blogs, infographics, videos and social media.
  2. Real-Time – The real-time landscape means that life is unfolding simultaneously online and offline. As a real-time micro-blogging channel, Twitter is an excellent example.
  3. Value Proposition – The basis of this buzzword is understanding why your company is valuable to consumers and then establishing how to convey that value.
  4. Crowdsourcing – Described as “the biggest focus group you could ever imagine,” crowdsourcing provides the opportunity to reach and gather information from a large group of people through the Internet – specifically, social media.
  5. Social Commerce – Best described as “social media meets shopping,” this type of eCommerce uses communication, connection and design to drive sales.
  6. Native Ads – Melding advertising and content creation, native ads are meant to look more editorial than sales-focused.
  7. SMO – Standing for Social Media Optimization, SMO is social media marketing with a unique emphasis on optimized content, linking and connections. It incorporates SEO as well as social media to more effectively drive traffic and results.
  8. ROI – This means Return On Investment – It’s a vital part of social media optimization. ROI measures social success by focusing on the benefits you reap in relation to the effort you put in.
  9. KPI – Or Key Performance Indicators. These refer to metrics used to gauge performance – how to determine the successes and failures. KPI’s can be industry-specific or incredibly broad, and they are especially helpful in scenarios such as digital campaigns.
