The Marketing Automation Challenge

Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of Marketing Automation, but in a lot of cases it’s not clear what it is or why it is important to them.  Websand is designed to make marketing automation easier and more accessible however, before we get into the Websand Six Minute Marketing Automation Challenge, let’s take a look at why marketing automation is becoming more and more important to businesses in all sectors.

Why Marketing Automation is Important

You grow your business through new business.  But to do that effectively means creating more business from existing customers as well as finding new valuable ones, and in an increasingly digital and data driven market place that is where marketing automation can really help.

Marketing Automation allows you to creating more business from existing customers, allowing you to create processes that automatically send targeted marketing messages based on customer value and behaviour (or lack of it).

Marketing Automation can also help the customer acquisition process by sending personalised messages to prospective customers and nurturing them towards a sale.

Marketing Automation is the tool that brings your marketing strategy to life.  Making seemingly complicated processes much easier to apply.  Sending targeted email messages to your customers when their behaviour meets one of your marketing rules.  In the same way as Google presents adwords when someone enters a search term that meets one of your PPC keywords, except you are in control of the process.
