This research aims to test the influence of e-marketing usage on competitive advantage through product innovation and marketing performance. The sampling technique uses purposive sampling with a sample of 347 MSMEs in Central Java. Data analysis techniques use path analysis with Warp PLS 5.0 software. The results showed that e-marketing usage has a positive and significant effect on product innovation and competitive advantage, and e-marketing usage has a positive and significant effect on competitive advantage through product innovation. However, e-marketing usage does not affect marketing performance and e-marketing usage does not affect competitive advantage through product innovation.
