Print  PDF

IMI Creates Innovative Breaking News Content Marketing Platform.  

Sites Populated with News from Keywords Relating to Your Industry, Your Vertical, Your Niche


IMI Creates Quality Traffic, Those Who Searched
for Keywords  "Relating to YOUR Industry"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Scottsdale, AZ and Malibu,CA: September 20, 2012 —

Innovative Marketing Ideas (IMI) is pleased to announce the launch of our unique industry news platform. Our proprietary software sends out “NewsBots” which scour the web for breaking news on any subject/keyword. Once the breaking news story is found, it is sent to our servers which reformat the news stories into the following easy to read/browse configuration:
    • Title
    • Picture (if available)
    • Credit to Author (i.e. Chicago Tribune)
    • 25-200 word Snippet (Preview of Article)
    • Direct Link to the Original Content Provider
    • Related Breaking News Stories 

    50 years ago Gallup released research showing that delivering news is the “most-effective” way to attract people to your business.  


    50 years later, Innovative Marketing Ideas has devised a uniquely effective platform designed to do exactly that…by creating “Breaking News” websites that update every hour on the hour.

    Immediately after IMI”s platform reconfigures the breaking news story, it is published to your “breaking news” website. IMI’s platform can “train” our “NewsBots” to find breaking news on any keyword in any industry, vertical or niche. In addition, the “newsbots” are trained to go out and find breaking news on said keyword(s) every hour on the hour, 24/7/365 providing the latest news on your industry’s sector.

    Our systematic approach to creating traffic is enhanced with our proprietorially enriched built-in search engine optimization (SEO) features creating a rich content marketing 2.0 platform designed to create traffic/eyeballs.

    Our search engine marketing (SEM) campaign creates the avenue whereby traffic is driven. These “Inroads” lead to more page views, unique visits and thus more exposure for your brand/product or service since as the breaking news pages are eloquently laced with banner ads/videos featuring your company.

    To see an example of our technology in action, please visit our Breaking News site for the Near Field Communication (NFC) Mobile Payments Industry at: http://NFCIP.org or visit http://NBANewsHeat.com which provides breaking news on the NBA’s World Champion Miami Heat. We can provide documentation that each of these sites attract over 10,000 unique page views per month by the end of Month Three.

    Introducing IMI’s News Content Marketing Platform

    IMI’s platform includes Social Media Optimization (SMO) and will tie-in your breaking news site with a Twitter Account and Facebook page further increasing traffic/brand exposure. In summary, Innovative Marketing Ideas delivers the “content” your potential customers are searching for and delivers it in all the places they go. You’ll find our service remarkably effective because your customers will find you…via the news.

    Our SEO/SEM/SMO enriched Breaking News sites start at $99 per month and includes 3 keywords. Additional Keywords are only $25/month. You won’t find a better SEO platform (which performs right before your IMEyes) at a better price anywhere. We guarantee it. As part of our introductory offer, our $249 site-build/setup fee is being waived for the first 100 customers.

    Reserve your Industry Breaking News Website with IMI today, before your competition beats you to it. Any keyword, any industry, any vertical, any niche, any language, anywhere in the world. Get yours today! Because “New News is Good News!”
    IMEyes Your Brand/Product/ Service Today!
