Effective marketing shows your goods and value proposition to your target audience - existing customers and new audiences. With your market research, your brand strategy will lead you to what your target market is looking for, the price they are willing to obtain, and how the goods play out in your marketing mix. Feedback through reviews, social media, and customer satisfaction feedback will close the loop on acceptance and follow through to the next product. Marketing management is a role that needs to take charge of the voice that your business will message, and how effective it is in bringing your target audience to your site. Methods vary depending on the medium, such as Subscribers, Email marketing, Social Media, Google Ads, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and other channels. This is a time-consuming activity that requires focus and strong execution. From a marketing strategy to the tools to run the marketing automation, reaching your customer base frequently will require you to announce your new offerings, your promotions, and your brand.

Customer relationship management can be part of the strategy when it comes to B2B marketing which has a different slant to the role. Additionally, when it comes to a social media site, considering all social networks on what is the most appropriate medium is also key. Therefore the role can shift based on customer target audiences, product segments, and usage models.
