Marketing automation refers to technology that automates marketing tasks and actions across all channels. A marketing automation platform is used to plan, coordinate, manage, and measure all marketing efforts and campaigns, both online and offline.
For example, it simplifies lead scoring, social media content publishing, email workflows management, and is a highly effective way for businesses to personalize their marketing communications to nurture prospects along the buyer’s journey.
According to research, about 79% of B2B marketers worldwide use marketing automation. This number keeps growing across all industry verticals and amongst companies of all sizes.
