Marketing Automation for Sales and Marketing
Did you think marketing automation was only for marketers? Think again marketing automation can be as much for sales as it is for marketing. Don’t let sales be a mere bystander to marketing automation. While you might be familiar with how marketing automation can turn your website into a lead magnet and turbocharge your marketing campaigns, you might be less familiar with what marketing automation can do for sales reps. Here are just a few things that sales can do with marketing automation:
- Get a unified view of each lead with complete lead intelligence including demographic and behavioral information.
- Get real-time alerts when a hot lead visits your website.
- Run hyper-targeted campaigns for specific accounts even from a mobile phone.
