The Seven Deadly Sins Of Marketing Automation

Hayley Mullen UberflipBy Hayley Mullen, Content and Community Manager, Uberflip

I’m tempted to start by calling marketing automation the “hot new trend,” but “trend” implies something fleeting — and believe me, marketing automation isn’t going anywhere. Rather, more companies are realizing the need for marketing automation as part of their strategy, especially as content/inbound marketing replaces traditional in-your-face marketing.

If you’re new to marketing automation, the term can be misleading — automated means less work, right? Well, yes and no. A marketing automation platform will handle much of the grunt work, streamline existing processes, and provide the kind of insight into your audience that would take hours to dig up if done manually. But it’s not meant to take over your marketing for you. It’s meant to cut down on production time and lay the foundation for better marketing. Making the most of that is up to you.
