Each poem must include at least 3 Internet marketing or search engine optimization related keywords. A list of possible keywords will be provided on the company’s website. Using these keywords, contest applicants can write poems that express their creativity or just pure silliness.

Arnie Kuenn, President of Vertical Measures, said, “With Internet Marketing and social media marketing services being part of a rapidly growing industry, it is important that young people are made aware of these strategies and tactics, and are inspired to pursue jobs in this potentially lucrative field.”
