What is the impportance of "Marketing user" option in user permission?

Sonam_SFDCSonam_SFDC
marketing user checkbox in User detail page:


When enabled, the user can create, edit, and delete campaigns, configure advanced campaign setup, import leads, and update campaign history via the member import wizards. Available in Professional, Enterprise, Unlimited, and Performance Editions.
To use the campaign import wizards, Marketing Users must also have the Marketing User profile (or the “Import Leads” permission and the “Edit” permission on campaigns in Enterprise, Unlimited, and Performance Edition organizations).
If this option isn’t selected, the user can only view campaigns and advanced campaign setup, edit the Campaign History for a single lead or contact, and run campaign reports.

Thank u for reply..... As per your explanation by using "Marketing User" option we can also "import leads".but same thing we can do by using "Marketing User" profile right!.Then why to have a profile separately to import leads?

Its  kind of an admin permission which you give only to certain marketing users such that they can import campaigns..importing campaigns iI believe is something organizations would not allow all its marketing users to be doing..
