Getting Started with Marketing Automation

About this Guide

By definition, automation is something that software does exceptionally well, taking a task and performing it repeatedly following a set of rules.

Automation itself refers to any activity that you don’t have to do in real-time (and perhaps don’t have to do yourself at all).

Marketing automation, by nature then, refers to any outbound marketing (like email and text messages) that automatically happens in response to a user’s actions that were made or not made.

Because automated tasks can include so many possibilities, the strategies and tips in this guide will help ensure you maintain your focus and use marketing automation to improve your digital marketing results and ultimately grow your business.
