Content marketing is 62% less expensive than traditional marketing*
Think about all of the expense (cost and time) you last incurred when you attended a trade show, promoted a PR event, or posted out a direct mail promotion.
And did you manage to take the time to back track, to see if these activities generated more sales? Traditional marketing projects are costly and to get best value you need to track their ROI.
Marketing Automation is all about traceability – tracking when a lead first landed on your website. When, where they came from, what they did, what you made them do and how many times they’ve been back.
And all the while scoring them to see how hot they actually are as a lead. Thus reducing costs by creating greater efficiencies and making best use of your budgets.
There’s lots of data available to support the fact that you will secure and convert more leads with an investment in a MAP (Marketing Automation Platform), simply by giving customers what they want and when they want it.
With 90% of buyers saying that when they’re ready they’ll find you and over 70% of the buying process being done before any contact has been made with you, you need to work at building relationships, so prospects feel valued and understood.
By giving customers relevant content, without them even asking for it, you will gain their trust and confidence in your brand, and you will know how interested they are in your products and services – and then decide what you need to do, to make them sales-ready.
There is nothing expensive about SharpSpring automation – you can even spread the cost monthly
The point is Marketing Automation is responsive to present-day trends, is simple to get up and running, and boosts the number of sales-ready prospects you secure and convert. That’s not expensive. We think that’s affordable.
