Well, it actually depends on what you name “expensive”. Marketing automation tools will help you priorise your pipeline and let you focus on the relevant opportunities for your business, reducing therefore your cost per acquisition.

Marketing automation will allow you to automate interactions with early stage leads for example, enabling you to qualify your leads before you handle them directly with a personal contact.

You will also be able to understand better your acquisition channels, gain an overview of which channel does generate business for you at the lowest cost, or what is the right channel mix.

A marketing automation tool is a complementary solution to a CRM, it will synchronise with it in realtime and give you a full 360 degree visibility of your prospects and clients behaviours online, on e-mails, will connect also to their social profile, making you understand better your prospects and clients.

Looking into other critical elements of a Marketing Automation Solution you will find an open API most of the time. the API (advanced programmatic interface) makes it easier for you to add a lot of customer experiences for your prospects / clients. You can automatically import all the contacts generated on your linkedin & facebook lead forms, let your clients book appointments into any agenda, register to a webinar, sign-up for an event, you can send them reminder SMS, add personalisation to your websites and send the data to your database for reporting. These capabilities make a marketing automation solution the centerpiece of your customer journey orchestration.
