E-Marketing Mix Strategy (EMMS), Organizational Performance (OP), Jordanian SMEs, Quantitative Research


Purpose: The purpose of this empirical research article is to investigate the association between e-marketing mix strategy (EMMS) and organizational performance (OP) in Jordanian SMEs.


Theoretical framework: The study used a quantitative research methodology to explore the impact of EMMS factors on OP indicators, such as product development, pricing strategies, promotional activities, and online distribution channels.


Design/methodology/approach: The study's data is gathered using a survey questionnaire issued to 250 Jordanian SMEs. The dependent variables include OP indicators such as financial performance, customer happiness, market share, and innovation, whereas the independent variables are EMMS factors. Control factors including business size, firm age, and industry type are also taken into account. To evaluate the hypothesized correlations, the obtained data is analyzed using the PLS-SEM (PLS 4.0) technique.


Findings: The results of this study show that in the Jordanian context, all e-marketing techniques, including product development, price strategies, promotional activities, and online distribution channels, have a significant positive impact on OP metrics


Research implications: The findings of this study demonstrate the value of e-marketing and the necessity of sound e-marketing tactics for fostering the expansion and competitiveness of SMEs in the digital era.


Practical and social implications: The study underscores the significance of implementing e-marketing strategies for SMEs in Jordan, as they contribute to enhancing OP. Policymakers can utilize these findings to develop supportive measures for SMEs, while practitioners can gain insights into the value of e-marketing strategies in achieving growth and competitiveness.


Originality/value: This study adds to the current literature by investigating the association between EMMS and OP in Jordanian SMEs. The study adds to the field's knowledge base by providing empirical evidence and insights on the impact of various e-marketing methods on OP measures.
