WHAT KEY THINGS NEED TO BE NAILED DOWN BEFORE INVESTING IN MARKETING AUTOMATION?
Adoption of marketing automation technology continues to heat up.
Unfortunately, many organizations still struggle with marketing automation – not because the tools don’t work or they lack functionality, but because of a skills gap in B2B marketing best practices and a lack of content to fuel the beast, leading many organizations to take the plunge blindfolded, backward, and head first. At least be prepared.
According to Gleanster’s research findings in 2013:
- Top Performing organizations continue to be 5 to 6 times more likely than Everyone Else to utilize marketing automation, suggesting that the technology is at least partially responsible for superior success.
- But Top Performers account for only a fraction of the companies using the tools.
- 75% of organizations that have been using marketing automation for less than a year use the tool for batch-and-blast campaigns.
- Conversely, Top Performers are 8x more likely than Everyone Else to embrace lead scoring capabilities within the first year.
