In a nutshell, marketing automation refers to software that automates your marketing for you. The software is designed to help you prioritise and execute your marketing tasks in a more streamlined and efficient way. But what does that mean for you as a business, and where on earth do you start? Unlike automating manufacturing processes, implementing a marketing automation system won’t make your job irrelevant, it will just make you more effective. It will free up some of your time, while not compromising the authenticity of the content you’re producing. And it will help you reach your goals faster. The ultimate goal with your marketing is to generate more revenue for your company.
