What is marketing automation?

Marketing automation involves using software to automate emails, social media posts, and other digital marketing tasks. Today, many agencies offer this type of service to aid in their clients' digital strategies and campaigns.

The idea behind automating parts of a digital strategy is to make managing different tasks easier.

As your strategy becomes more complex, automation helps you stay on top of everything and enables you to take on more initiatives and campaigns. The more tasks you can automate, the more time you get to work on other, more challenging projects.

What does a marketing automation agency do?

Marketing automation agencies provide marketing automation services like MarketingCloudFX to help their clients determine where automation could simplify their workload and use their time more efficiently so they can get more value from marketing.

In general, you can expect a marketing automation agency to help your business by:

  • Assessing digital marketing processes and tasks
  • Determining which processes or tasks could benefit from marketing automation
  • Automating processes or tasks that offer the best return on investment (ROI)

A marketing automation agency, like WebFX, will also help your company by:

  • Establishing marketing automation through your preferred platform, like HubSpot
  • Setting up website tracking to monitor conversions, leads, and phone calls
  • Creating helpful dashboards for organizing data and analyzing digital marketing performance
  • Offering supportive solutions, like lead scoring, lead tracking, and more

Your marketing automation agency's role in your business will depend on your needs. For example, if you want a provider that supports automations via HubSpot, you'll want to focus on agencies that provide those types of services.

Do I need marketing automation?

Marketing automation offers companies of all sizes value. Whether you're an enterprise organization or small-to-midsized business (SMB), you can benefit from bringing marketing automation into your company.

If you're unsure about whether you need marketing automation, think about these questions:

  • Do you have repetitive marketing tasks, like sending emails or segmenting subscribers?
  • Do you know how much ROI each marketing channel or strategy generates?
  • Do you have a smart method for tracking and monitoring leads?
  • Do you have a fast way to measure, organize, and assess marketing channel performance?

If you answered "No" to most of these questions, marketing automation could help your business.

For example, marketing automation could help your company (and you) by tracking each channel's ROI. When you track and measure a channel's ROI, you make it easier to assess its impact on your business, which can help you prove the effectiveness of a channel, like search, to company decision-makers.

Should I hire a marketing automation agency?

Your business can start using automation today if you want. Platforms like HubSpot and Mailchimp, for instance, allow you to automate tasks as soon as you create your account. Some companies wonder, however, if they should hire a marketing automation agency.

Questions like the following can help you decide whether an agency is right for you:

  • Am I able to automate tasks successfully?
  • Am I getting the most value from marketing automation tools, or could I use some help?
  • Are there more tasks that I want to automate, but can't with my experience or toolkit?
  • Do I need help organizing and analyzing my marketing data?
