Marketing Automation FAQ’s
How does Marketing Automation track website visitors?
Using a variety of tracking cookies, scripts, and triggers, a good marketing automation platform will not only be able to track websites but social media platforms, email client activity and some can even track a prospect journey through the Google Display Network (over 2 million sites that reach across 90% of all people on the Internet today).
How practical is it to automate sales and marketing?
The short answer is very practical, but that all depends on the complexity of the campaign. We always recommend starting off with some simpler automated workflows and add to them over time. The longer you run an automated campaign, the more data you can collect on prospect behavior. Before you know it, the workflows become more complex and highly targeted.
Why is marketing automation important for a business?
Smart marketing teams use marketing automation to make their campaigns more accurate and to provide leverage to their admissions team with better leads, and achieve greater ROI.
What problems do marketing automation platforms solve?
Saving time as starters. But as competition in the education space intensifies, marketing departments and agencies are seeking the latest in innovative marketing techniques to help overcome challenges and boost the efficiency of their marketing campaigns. In the quest for the most effective marketing tools available, many schools and their agencies have incorporated software, such as marketing automation, to help meet their enrollment and start goals.
I already have a CRM with a Marketing Automation feature, do I still need a full-service marketing automation platform?
Customer relationship managers (CRM) – like Campus Vue, SalesForce, Sugar, Talisma, and Zoho – are not marketing automation platforms. Rather, they are CRMs that have a marketing automation feature bolted on to it. Having a marketing automation “feature” is far less effective than a full-service platform where the technology lives at its core.
More About Full-Service Automation Platforms vs CRM (with Automation)
Marketing automation platforms are a robust set of tools for generating and qualifying leads. There is a nice harmony between the two platforms, but CRM functionality is basically limited to tracking communication between sales teams and a prospect.
Marketing automation tools use forms, behavior tracking, dynamic lists, email automation, and analytics to feed the leads into an admissions organization. Simply put, a CRM does not generate leads or help convert them to students. Instead, it is an organization tool for admissions people and Directors of Admissions.
In short, marketing automation allows marketing departments to demonstrate the ROI of their digital campaigns. When marketing teams are able to prove how their campaigns impact the bottom line, they continue to gain more budgeting for marketing programs. With more budget support for their marketing campaigns, marketers are better to expand, grow creatively and execute new campaigns that will further impact their enrollment processes.
