Marketing requires big efforts to gain that precious customer. But no matter how difficult or easy marketing may be to you, you can get better results with marketing automation.
Marketing automation involves having a repeatable system that sends the right message to your leads at the right time based on their interactions with your email, products, websites, or ads.
When you have the right execution for your marketing automation, it could be the game changer for your business. You can process your leads faster and gain more customers with less effort.
Setting up your marketing automation system allows you to have better conversations with potential buyers and see how they interact with your content and business generally.
Over the years, as automation became popular, marketers tagged it “robotic.”
You have probably read articles where the authors talked about how automation lacks the emotion that's important in human interactions. But these criticisms are unjustified!

So saving new clients from your CRM system in this example, into for example here, QuickBooks Online. So another way to save some time, in this case specifically for sales, we set up a Zapier zap or a synchronization between AgileCRM and QuickBooks Online. So that the moment that I tag a specific contact, in this case we tagged with a tag called "invoice", that contact's information every 15 minutes through Zapier will automatically add that new customer into a customer within QuickBooks.
Today I'm going to quickly go over five benefits of email marketing automation. This is basically the idea of why you should be doing marketing automation. Most of it is usually done by email, so let's discuss.
