Frequently Asked Questions


What is the difference between marketing strategy and marketing tactics?

A marketing strategy refers to a company's overall plan or approach to reach its target audience and achieve its marketing objectives. It involves identifying the target market, analyzing the competition, and determining the most effective marketing mix (i.e., the combination of products, pricing, promotion, and distribution) to reach and engage potential customers.

On the other hand, marketing tactics are the specific actions or efforts a company takes to implement its marketing strategy. These include advertising, social media campaigns, email marketing, events, and public relations efforts. Marketing tactics are typically more specific and focused on executing a particular aspect of the overall marketing strategy.
