Marketing automation software captivates us with its promise to personalize communication between our business and our prospects. By keeping an eye on the content a prospect engages in, it’s able to serve up the right messages to them at the right time, practically putting lead generation and nurturing programs on autopilot.
Marketing automation also empowers marketers to dig into data, understand what’s working and what’s not, and quickly adjust the dials of the marketing automation machine to optimize results.
Given this, it’s no wonder marketing automation solutions are selling like chilled lemonade at a mid-summer marathon. The Raab Report reports that revenues for B2B marketing automation systems will grow 50% to reach $750 million in 2013.
