The landscape of marketing automation is growing at a rapid pace, and in 2017 you really can't escape it. The first steps in marketing automation can be a real challenge. That's why Calibrate is here to help you on your way. Do you want to easily use email marketing, social marketing, landing pages and so much more to reach your visitors with personalised content, and then increase your sales? Then be sure to read along.
You can divide marketing automation into three important tasks: building digital profiles, setting up relevant campaigns and converting leads. Through marketing automation, you enter, so to speak, into conversation with your client. Among other things, you remember which pages he visits, where he clicks, which events interest him, and so on. By saving all this data, you create a unique profile of each customer. This profile is used by organisations only to send relevant information to the client. After all, you know exactly what concerns him or her. You only point out things that are related to the visitor. In the last step, you then transfer your leads from the marketing department to the sales department.
Marketing automation has grown enormously in recent years. The advantages are therefore endless. You get a customer database with clear profiles, so you know exactly which customers need what. The segmentation is also based on both explicit and implicit behaviour. This gives you a better insight into a customer's willingness to buy a product. But the biggest advantage is that you can personalise your campaigns.
The aim of marketing automation is to generate more leads. More leads ensure a higher conversion rate, which in turn leads to a higher return on investment. And as you know: more sales generate more profit. Once the ball is rolling well, you can't stop it!
