Marketing automation doesn’t have to be the “big bad evil” of simply serving automatic messages to your prospects and customers hoping something will stick. But it’s not an instant fix for your campaigns gone awry, either. Effective use of marketing automation technologies takes a strategic, thoughtful approach, just like all of your other marketing tools and activities. With the right strategy, it can help you create marketing campaigns your customers will actually appreciate and react to. Join the SFAMA and your fellow marketers for another great evening of discussion and discovery, and a lively panel debate with Bay Area leaders in marketing technology. Cash bar. Light appetizers will be provided.
