Savvy marketers of today are making the

most of marketing automation

As a business grows, it becomes difficult to maintain a 1:1 relationship with clients/ customers. You might overlook follow-ups, action items, reminders, etc. and this could lead to relationship management issues and lower performance.

This is where marketing automation makes the difference – by allowing you to do more, in an effective manner, with lesser resources. A win-win all the way!

Marketing automation involves using software to help segment and nurture prospects and customers, automate campaign management and performance tracking, define a workflow for routine tasks/ actions, and bring efficiency into marketing efforts.

It’s not the same as email-marketing. It’s not about spamming your prospect/ customer with automated emails/ messages. Done correctly, marketing automation is personalized and user-friendly. But that’s also where the challenge lies – to do it right.

Often marketers, particularly in large corporations subscribe to marketing automation platforms/ software but fail to make use of it beyond the basics, which renders the solution somewhat ineffective.

Marketing Automation Software vs Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software

There are similarities, differences and overlaps between marketing automation & CRM solutions. Ideally, you should have just one solution that does both, and that is increasingly the case. But we still have many solutions available which focus more on either marketing automation or CRM. Ideally though, both are essential.

In simple terms, marketing automation focuses on marketing while CRM focuses on sales. Marketing automation is more involved with managing and automating digital marketing campaigns, while CRM programs are more focused on managing the sales pipeline and opportunity tracking.

Many leading marketing automation programs integrate with a wide range of CRM solutions, and it makes sense that the functions are integrated because they do overlap in many situations. For example, some form of lead nurturing and customer segmentation is involved in both platforms.

The decision of which solution to choose, or to choose an integrated solution will depend on many factors, including:

  • Nature of your business – B2B or B2C
  • Length of your sales cycle
  • Type of business – online, offline, integrated
  • Your marketing objectives and needs
  • Budget
