The only social media & marketing glossary that you’ll ever need

More icon arrow down green color

You wake up in the year 3022.

The Intergalactic Marketing Convention is just about to start. The first speaker is up.

They open their mouth and…

“PLASTLWSHUDNOAJDKFKEJAJWOOP”

What the…?

It seems that the inevitable has happened: Marketing talk has turned into One Giant Acronym (OGA).

You sit in confused silence, surprised that everyone else is nodding and taking notes.

When did this happen? I mean, I know things have got bad (need I mention “TLA” – the acronym that actually means Three-Letter Acronym?). But not this bad.

OK, so this futuristic scene might seem unlikely. But with the rate that marketing speak is evolving, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility.

Because let’s be honest, every one of us has been bested by marketing’s love of an acronym. Or a theory. Or even a bunch of random letters akin to that Wordly you couldn’t quite nail.

The thing is, we love to shorten complex ideas. But you needn’t be tripped up by CPM, PPC, PPT, or even GHF* for one moment longer.

For this glossary is now your bible. Yay!

Time to school yourself on every marketing term there is, so you’ll never be caught out at a marketing meeting again (intergalactic or otherwise).

Here goes.
