The Small Business Systems Co. GlossaryA Glossary Of Modern Marketing and Business Terminology
Content Marketing — (1) a strategy for using useful information and entertainment to promote your brand and products. (2) creating appropriate and relevant media that connects company branding with the solving of users’ problems.
CMS Content Management System – a computer application that supports the creation and modification of digital content using a common user interface and thus usually supporting multiple users working in a collaborative environment. CMSes have been available since the late 1990s.
Corporate Identity — In its simplest form a company’s Corporate Identity is the elemental look of the company brand and can generally be found is a suite of documents such as the company logo, business card, letterhead, envelope, website design, as well as your social media platforms
EMD (Exact Matching Domain) — An EMD is when your domain name precisely matches a search query that people are using to search for your products or services and results in driving traffic to your website for those terms. In other words, if you call your website AvonCTGeneralContractors.com your will appear high in searches for “Avon CT General Contractors”. This is a shortcut to gain position in Search Engin Page Results (SERP) but it can backfire in that it could leave you stuck on a page surrounded by services that connect users with general contractors such as Angie’s List, Home Advisor Thumbtack rather than a page full of contractors so you could then possibly be passed over. (see Your Guide to Google’s Exact Match Domain Algorithm Update)
The Facebook pixel is a piece of code you place on the backend of your website to track visitors to your site. The pixel allows you to run highly targeted campaigns, so it’s important to install it before running Facebook ads.
Each ad account gets one default pixel to use. The code is made up of two main parts: the pixel base code and event code. The pixel base code tracks all of the traffic to your site. Event codes are additional pieces of code you can add under the default pixel code to specific pages of your website that allow you to track certain actions on those pages.

.Job Shop — From Wikipedia: “Job shops are typically small manufacturing systems that handle job production, that is, custom/bespoke or semi-custom/bespoke manufacturing processes such as small to medium-size customer orders or batch jobs. Job shops typically move on to different jobs (possibly with different customers) when each job is completed.”
Job Shops can be extremely diverse in terms of output, technology, operations, and size. Output can range all the way from single parts to complex sub-assemblies. Materials can include metals, plastics, paper, rubber, cloth, ceramics… virtually any material with commercial applications. Production technologies are equally diverse.
Not all job shops are manufacturers. Printing, engineering services, architectural design, advertising agencies, construction companies, and others, all operate on a similar order-driven business model.
For example, say you own a Sporting Goods store and have an AdWords ad promoting golf clubs. In this case, you want the Landing page for your ad to be the page on your site that’s about your great selection of golf clubs.
On a Landing Page the focus is tighter and specific on a particular product or service offering you are hoping your prospect will take advantage of and it should be clear about what action or actions you want you prospect to take such as:
- Sign up for something (newsletter, whitepaper, etc.)
- Buy something
- Share something (like an article or offer with a friend via email or social media)
- Give you feedback (comment, send you an email etc.)
And Landing pages can generally be categorized in two way. Click Though Pages and Lead Generation Landing Pages.
Lead Generation Pages — Lead Generation Pages are a type of Landing Page that are used to capture user data, such as a name and email address the sole purpose being to give you a contact point to start a conversation with and/or market to in the future.
UTM code — A UTM code is a simple code that you can attach to a custom URL in order to track a source, medium, and campaign name. This enables Google Analytics to tell you where searchers came from as well as what campaign directed them to you
