A marketing strategy can help an organization focus its resources on the best opportunities to increase sales and gain a competitive advantage. Before strategizing, a company must analyze its strategic position before it can formulate, evaluate and select a market-oriented competitive position that will help them achieve their marketing goals. The study of strategic marketing is a separate field and was developed from the earlier areas of strategic management. Marketing strategy emphasizes the importance of marketing as a link between an organization and its customers. Marketing strategy combines the resources and capabilities of an organization to gain a competitive advantage that enhances firm performance.
Marketing analytics refers to the process of measuring, managing, and analysing marketing performance in order to maximize effectiveness and optimize return-on-investment (ROI). Marketing analytics can help marketers be more efficient and reduce wasted marketing dollars by understanding how they work. Marketing analytics provides insight into customer preferences and trends that can be used to generate leads and sales. These compelling benefits aside, most organizations don't realize the potential of marketing analytics because they aren't able to measure ROI.
Search engine optimization (SEO), is the process of increasing website traffic from search engines. Search engine optimization targets non-paid traffic, also known as organic or natural results. It is not intended to target direct traffic or paid visitors. Search engine optimization can target unpaid traffic from different types of searches such as image, video, news, academic, and vertical search engines. Search engine optimization is an Internet marketing strategy that considers the way search engines work, how they behave, the computer-programmed algorithms which control search engine behavior, what people are searching for, the search terms and keywords used in search engines and which search engines are most preferred by their target audience. Because websites that rank higher in search engine results pages (SERP) will attract more traffic, search engine optimization is done. These visitors could then be converted into customers.
Digital advertising is also known by the names of online marketing, internet advertising, online advertising and web advertising. It uses the Internet to promote products or services to users and audiences. Online advertising can include email marketing, social media marketing, search engine optimization (SEM), digital advertising, and many other types of display advertising, including web banner advertising. Programmatic advertising, which is a form of automated software that works across multiple sites, media services, and platforms, is gaining popularity. Online advertising is similar to other media. A publisher integrates ads into its online content and an advertiser provides the advertisements for display on the publisher's website. Advertising agencies that help create and place the advertising copy, an advertising server that technologically delivers the ads and tracks statistics, as well as advertising affiliates who perform independent promotional work for advertisers are all potential participants.
Content creation refers to the sharing of information in any media, but especially digital media, for an end-user/audience within specific contexts.

Content creation includes blogging, updating websites, writing articles, photography, videography and online commentary. Editing and distribution of digital media can also be done.
