Marketers have a crazy busy schedule at work – attending meetings here and there, filtering through mailing lists, sending out emails and SMSes to hundreds and thousands of prospects, publishing blog posts, among several other tasks.
You might think you’ve done your part in driving revenue for your company, but on the contrary, you may be wasting your time (or worse, your prospects’) with every email and SMS blast you send out. In this case, your marketing efforts become ineffective, misdirected, and impractical.
Automation in digital marketing solves this disconnect. Statistics say 91 percent of its most successful users agree that marketing automation is very important to the success of their multichannel marketing campaigns. Simply put, automation is any software that automates your marketing tasks in a way that is more organized, personalized, and targeted than traditional marketing.
