As a marketing manager I found some great information in this 48 page document and recommend it to all our readers who are interested in learning more about marketing automation – from basic to advanced. I especially like the humorous “candid letter from sales to marketing” and this quote from section 2: “Let’s be clear, every marketing department should use marketing automation. In the sales department, every VP of Sales knows they need CRM (software). In the finance department, every CFO knows they need ERP (software). In both those departments, automation is not a “shiny new toy” but a competitive advantage when used correctly. The same is true for marketing automation.”
As a company that sells ERP Software, and works with CRM Software, but has no marketing automation software – I can truly relate to this statement.
