Topic: E-marketing ..In lines




EMarketing is essentially part of marketing. But what is the difference between eMarketing and Internet or web marketing? What are the eMarketing tools? And how do marketers plan for eMarketing 
? This lesson aims to answer these questions

So the place to begin defining eMarketing is to consider where it fits within the subject of marketing. So let’s start with adefinition of marketing
 The American Marketing Association (AMA) definition (2004) is as follows

Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders.

Therefore eMarketing by its very nature is one aspect of an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and its stakeholders. As such an aspect, eMarketing has its own approaches and tools that contribute to the achievement of marketing goals and objectives

This also helps us to differentiate between eMarketing and E-commerce, since E-Commerce is simply buying and selling online.
What is the difference between eMarketing and internet or web marketing

There is no real difference between eMarketing and internet or web marketing. However, with the arrival of mobile technologies such as PDA’s and 3G mobile phones, as well as Interactive Television, both terms tend to be stretched to include these new media technologies. On the other hand, others would see eMarketing and internet or web marketing as subtly different, for example Chaffey (below)

internet [or web] marketing is achieving marketing objectives through applying digital technologies. (Chaffey 2006)

eMarketing is achieving marketing objectives through use of electronic communications technology. (Chaffey 2006)

Whilst this distinction is wholly acceptable, it is difficult to see where the distinction lies between digital technologies and electronic communications technologies, especially with the convergence of technologies such as mobile devices
What are the eMarketing tools?

The Internet has a number of tools to offer to the marketer

A company can distribute via the Internet e.g. Amazon.com
A company can use the Internet as a way of building and maintaining a customer relationship e.g. Dell.com
The money collection part of a transaction could be done online e.g. electricity and telephone bills
Leads can be generated by attracting potential customers to sign-up for short periods of time, before signing up for the long-term e.g. which.co.uk
The Internet could be used for advertising e.g. Google Adwords
Finally, the web can be used as a way of collecting direct

How do marketers plan for eMarketing ?

There are two ways of looking at this

An existing organization may embark upon some eMarketing as part of their marketing plan
An organization trades solely on the Internet and so their marketing plan focuses purely on eMarketing

The marketing plan in either case is the next step, whether focused upon eMarketing or all marketing. The next lessons focus upon a tailor-made eMarketing plan which conforms to the acronym AOSTC (from our generic marketing planning lesson)

A – Audit – An audit of internal strengths and weaknesses, an external opportunities and threats
O – Objectives – SMART eMarketing objectives
S – Strategy – eMarketing strategies
T – Tactics – an eMarketing mix
C – Controls – measuring the performance of our eMarketing plan
