Marketing automation has numerous benefits and is all about making task simpler. Most importantly taking all those exhaustive, administrative and repetitive tasks out of the core processes of your marketing teams hands. For instance manual processes in digital marketing can mostly be automated to minimise labour hours and maximise efficiency. Let’s go over the top 4 reasons you should consider implementing marketing automation to benefit your business.
1. Saving Time with marketing automation
Flagging emails, forwarding prospect emails to the right party, keeping spreadsheets with every lead and updating as you go. These manual processes are something of the internet 10 years ago but not today. Firstly, the lead capture process can be automated down to the individual. Leading to improved response times and potentially moving the needle on conversion. Secondly, as prospects get bombarded more and more every day with marketing messaging their attention span has shortened. This has led to conversion cycles shortening, so speed and efficiency in your marketing processes has never been more important.
2. Scalability & the benefits
There are many benefits in creating a marketing stack with it’s foundation in automation. Firstly, using the right tools can put your business in a position to manage scaling more effectively. Potentially removing the risk around scaling. Secondly, bottlenecks are the bug bear of all CEOs/Managers. Subsequently being the kind of marketing manager who removes bottlenecks, well ahead of time, could earn you a promotion.
