What is Marketing Automation?
Marketing automation involves the use of a specially designed platform that can help you automate all the regular marketing activities you need to perform on a daily basis. Marketers who have to work with many customers on a daily basis need to automate some of their tasks.
To provide great personalization you need automation and data. Today you need to collect valuable consumer data at every step and analyze it to be able to make personalized and informed content for your customers.
This can be an overwhelming process as it requires a lot of resources, time and knowledge to organize, manage and analyze such a large amount of data. Furthermore, the final step is to apply everything you learn from the data to personalize and optimize your marketing strategies.
That’s why you need the right technology solutions to make the whole process easier and create a structured impact. Automation platforms and artificial intelligence solutions can help with most of the tasks involved here.

Personalize with automation - Use cases
Automate personalised emails
Blasting a lot of people with automated emails will take even more prospects away from your business. In addition, such emails will likely end up in a spam folder without even being read. This is why many people think email is dead, but it’s not – they’re just approaching it the wrong way.
You need to personalize emails using automation through which you can change the dynamic content of your messages to create a more personalized tone. Through this, you can customize a field that you can use for many different buyer personas and sort them either manually or automatically to segment them.
The next step is to customize all the messages for each individual and make it easier to send them to groups of people. This way you will optimize the email sales process. Although you are directing consumers en masse through your sales funnel, you will increase their chances of conversion.
In addition, this approach also sets your customers and yourself up for an honest communication and this is essential for increasing sales. The potential content within your emails that you can personalize is for example images.
When someone clicks on your newsletter sign-up form, you simply give them more options on how to proceed. As they choose options, they are given sufficient steps that will be more appealing to them.
Not only that, but you will be able to gather valuable information about your prospects that you can use in the future to market yourself to them. For example, you can segment prospects based on their gender and offer them different custom fields to fill out.
