Shortly after meeting Julien Brandt, OrganikSEO's founder and speaking about various online marketing topics, he shared with me his company's new "Growing your Busines Online" infographic, which shares the essential message of this blog post in a single image. In fact, this image is being shared here on Bloominari's Blog before Julien had a chance to post it on his own site, so I'm happy he gave me the opportunity to do so :-)

Before we jump into exactly what services you should consider, it’s important to note that not every business will need the same services as every business is different, has different goals, different target markets, budgets, etc. Thus, the following list of services is not meant to help every company, but only those who’d benefit from marketing their products or services to a target audience that can be defined through online marketing services with a wide range of people.

Throughout the history of mankind and our existence, humans have constantly been in the pursuit of making life easier. In most cases, this has been achieved by developing new tools and technologies that help achieve things faster, easier and more efficiently.
Today’s modern online marketing tools are no different, as they allow the modern digital marketer to achieve many tasks faster, with less effort and more efficiently overall. Let’s explore what Internet marketing automation is all about.
In today’s digital marketing world, marketing automation refers to the ability to program, schedule, or automate one or more tasks to make a marketer’s work more effective.
Marketing automation comes in various shapes and sizes. It can range from a task as small as scheduling a social media post, to a very complex automated marketing and sales funnel that includes web user tracking, e-mail sign-up forms, lead scoring, e-mail open & click rates that help trigger specific emails, printed mail pieces, scheduling a rep to call a lead, and much more.
As the Internet continues to evolve, there’s a constant flow of innovation that bring to life new, better and different types of online marketing automation tools. Some of these tools are stand-alone applications and work independent of other software, some work only as add-ons or extensions to other applications and some as a combination of both.
Within the various automation tools, some solutions target specific online marketing niches - such as E-mail or online ADs only, others offer a complete solution of various pre-integrated marketing tools, while others offer the ability to easily connect independent web-based tools with each other to add automation capabilities without the need of complex custom-made programming.
