A marketing strategy requires the Chief Marketing Officer to address the sales activities across four basic areas: research, product development, pricing and distribution.

This will involve high-level planning and delegation of internet marketing, paid advertisements, and other marketing campaigns.
The Chief Marketing Officer will collaborate with a number of units across the business, and also externally. They will be required to have an ability to deal with a diverse range of people and be able to communicate developments and also issues without further issues arising. They will be a focal point of the business and be required to build rapport quickly and efficiently use their time.

These skills are essential to accomplish business objectives, overcome obstacles, and address challenges—particularly if they’re projected to take weeks, months, or even years to achieve. They will need to have an understanding of the trajectory of the business and be able to connect that from a marketing perspective so that the marketing activities are aligned with the business goals and also relevant to the marketplace.
The Chief Marketing Officer may be responsible for one or multiple teams and as such, must have the ability to administer and coordinate a group of individuals to perform a task. Team management involves teamwork, communication, objective setting and performance appraisals. The Chief Marketing Officer will communicate clearly with all team members and strive to accomplish a specific goal.
