You’re a smart and busy business owner. You know you need to market and advertise your business, but it’s hard to get a plan together when you’re so busy every day running the show.
When you finally carve out some time to get in front of an advertising rep, he or she extols the benefits and virtues of the communications channel they represent. Regardless of product, they all sing a similar song and it always sounds like a number one hit. Oh, and they all sell “digital impressions” (more on that in a later post), no matter what their main offering may be.
During that conversation the rep will throw out a bunch of acronyms and terms. Things like: CPP, KPI, SEM, GRP, CPM, PPC, CTR, SEO, OOH, OTT to name a few, with too many more to list. But you get my drift. They come fast and furious, flying above you, past you and around you. Let’s face it; no one wants to appear stupid, especially not a successful businessperson like yourself. So, you shake your head in agreement and make like you get it; all the while trying to decipher what some of those acronyms mean. You’re also wondering if this complicated mumbo-jumbo is even for you.
Fact is, it’s not your job to know these terms. It’s good to be familiar with them eventually, but your gig is to build and manage your business and your customers, to be great at what you do. Your job is to stay on top of your industry and keep up with advances in your area of expertise. That’s your job, and you’re awesome at it.
