Marketing Automation is broadly seen as a tool or process serving big companies and their marketing departments managing multiple online marketing channels. However, with the average 50% of the common marketing specialist’s time spent on content, it makes a lot of sense to automate your small
or medium size company marketing efforts to the most, so that you can free some time for your core business activities.
To start with the basics, marketing automation refers to technology or software used to help organizations to more effectively market on multiple channels online (such as email, social media, websites, etc.) and automate repetitive tasks (as described by John Koetsier in “Fast-growing marketing automation still has only 3% penetration in non-tech companies”).
