How do you manage your marketing? If you’re like many people, you probably do a little mix of digital marketing and traditional marketing. You likely use a variety of online channels and digital programs, but you probably also dabble in marketing the old-fashioned way, individual outreach, old-school (in a good way) tactics like print ads, etc.
Whatever mix you use, you likely run into issues tracking the success of your campaigns (some types, like print, more than others). Between executing on campaigns, creating collateral, building relationships and then tracking results, marketing can be extremely time-consuming and challenging.
Enter the power of marketing automation.
Fortunately, there are lots of great technology platforms available now that help automate tasks and make complex campaigns simpler. Using software that does the hard work for you, you can find yourself the beneficiary of more leads and more ways to measure success.
