The challenge here is also your opportunity - to guide the market's formation of new vocabulary. So whatever new words you've established internally, you definitely want to optimize for them from the start, even though there is no search volume... yet!
But in addition you need to consider what challenges your product or service is a solution for - and optimize around the keywords that people use to describe the problems they fact, and that your company offers a solution for. "Problem based" keywords are closer to the marketplace, even if a bit "higher up the conversion funnel."
By doing SEO for both "problem keywords" and "solution keywords" you will establish your company's presence in the market as its vocabulary evolves.

Yes...thank you, this is the only logical approach I could think of, because I am really still a novice at SEO. i will say, however, that I have become a bit of an SEO enthusiast because of the puzzles behind it.
I have my own keyword + solution keywords already going...so thanks, things seem to be on the right track.

This is a situation where well-targeted banner ads could be a valuable part of your mix.
Banners that tell your story well can create interest in users who didn't otherwise know about your product.

Buckworks...I did a small PPC banner ad run...got a zillion clicks but no inquries---which makes me a little leary of content networks search (google). There is nothing wrong with the site (I got a number of opinions when I rebuilt)...so it makes me think that folks were just out to make money for their sites.
Couldn't quite figure out the CPM switch on the google networks. I fooled around and fooled around and I just couldn't get it switched over from CPC to CPM...any ideas or other ways to do banners...I am open!

Then the targeting was off somehow.
Figure out ways to be more selective about who sees your ads. Watch your reports carefully to spot inappropriate placements, and learn how to block them.
And ... if the thing is totally new and no one has heard of it yet, you might simply need to expect a lot of curiosity clicks that don't take action for a while.

Yes...I had the PPC text thing down good for a while...but I just figured out the CPM banner switches as I was writing on this thread...I was WAY off.
Thanks so much!
