Just like there is an audience for every brand, there’s a marketing platform for every brand too. To reach the audience you are targeting, it takes a vast marketing automation platform – one that has all the complexities and features necessary, yet simple enough to navigate and use across multiple channels.
Why is marketing automation important?
Let’s take a step back and think about all the types of marketing technology your brand uses.
- Email Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Content Management System (CMS)
- Search Marketing
- Testing & Optimization
- Marketing Analytics
- Webinars, Web Conferencing and Virtual Events
- Graphic Design Tools
- Project Management
- Collaborative Software
- Web Hosting
- And so many more…
I’m sure I am forgetting a few marketing tools, and with the incredible amount of options currently available online today, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few more were launched as I write this post. It’s probably no surprise that automating all these tasks can be critical to managing a brand so that you can engage with your audience and find marketing success.
The results are remarkable
According to VB Insight, 80% of marketing automation users saw their number of leads increase, and 77% saw the number of conversions increase. Marketers want to be able to integrate their marketing capabilities to reach their target audience with ease, increase conversion rates, retain current clients, and position their brand as a leader in the space.
Unfortunately, based on a survey done by Ascend2, 59% of companies do not fully use the technology they have available to streamline marketing capabilities. That’s why it’s essential to find the right marketing automation provider.
