Until recently, marketing automation software was exclusively the preserve of the enterprise organisation. Now, as cloud computing has brought down the cost of software, any business can make use of marketing automation within their digital marketing strategy. This action planning workshop is for marketing professionals and business owners who want to take advantage of the opportunities presented through using marketing automation in their business.

As ever more tasks are added to the to-do of marketing professionals, it’s no surprise that marketing automation is a hot topic in the industry. Whether you want to set up simple reminders that help keep your customers updated on your business, or you want to nurture leads from initial contact through to the closed-sale, marketing automation systems can help achieve your goals.

Join us for this three-hour workshop introducing you to the basics of marketing automation and giving you practical guidance to get started with a marketing automation plan for your upcoming campaigns.
