What is Marketing Automation (MA)?

MA is a indispensible tool in any digital marketer's arsenal as, even in its simplest form, it facilitates 'customer journeys', captures user events and triggers emails. Without it, most marketers run blind; merely focussed on driving traffic to their site but not truly understanding their visitors or whether they are actually engaged, or not...

absolutelyinteractive MA (AI MA) goes way beyond the competition (which are normally standalone solutions) because it is deeply integrated with your site and AI's email marketing, SMS and CRM modules. So, you can do things like personalise any part of any page of your site for an individual or a cohort or even anonymous users. These and other advanced and highly beneficial capabilities are unique to AI MA and you will not find their like in any standalone system like HubSpot, MailChimp, InfusionSoft or Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

Everything is processed in real-time and is measurable. AI MA Journeys can run between set dates and provide reports showing exactly who is at each stage in the customer journey or buying process.
