About Keyword-Driven Marketing™
Acronym Media announced its Keyword-Driven Marketing approach and methodology at last year's Search Engine Strategies Conference and Expo in New York City. Today's announcement was made in time for this year's SES New York (March 17-21), where Acronym Media is an exhibitor, Grehan is moderating three sessions and Konikoff is speaking at two sessions.
The idea for Keyword-Driven Marketing stems from the origins of the company name, Acronym, which is derived from the Greek words akros "topmost" and onoma "name/word." Keyword-Driven Marketing calls for the topmost importance to be given to words that form the language that customers use and understand.
The Agency has successfully applied its KDM™ methodology to help its Clients understand customers' mental dictionary and keyword usage, formed by life experiences and outside influences, along with their interactions with keywords and key messages, both online and offline. The keyword-driven approach provides marketers with a roadmap to decode the intent behind keywords and create powerful marketing messaging that is sure to resonate with customers.
Additional information about Acronym Media's services and Keyword-Driven Marketing™ methodology is available at Booth #134 at the Search Engine Strategies Expo and online on http://www.acronym.com.
