The explosion of new media has created a veritable "alphabet soup" of terms and phrases that marketers need to know. It used to be HTML, XML, XP were the standard fare, but now we have blogs, RSS, CMS, BOT, F2F, RFID, SMS, POP, A9, EMS, HMD and a host of other terms invading the once sacred turf of the four P's. On Thursday, June 29, 2006, the American Marketing Association, Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter, will host an executive luncheon entitled "Emerging Marketing Technologies: How to Leverage New Media to Grow Your Business" at the Fort Worth Club, Fort Worth, TX.
