Marketing Automation Trends

As these specialised tools take the marketing world by storm, we spoke to email marketing automation experts, Wired Plus, about what advancements we can expect to see going forwards. Here’s what forecasted trends they had to share with us:

1. Advancing Email Marketing Automation: Personalised and u

ser-specific automated marketing emails will drive engagement. Simply including a customer’s name in an email is no longer enough to satisfy your customer base. Utilising a customer’s online behaviour and relationship with your business is imperative for maximising engagement levels. If they have been repeatedly viewing a specific product or service that you provide, why not send them a tailored discount code to nudge them to make a purchase? This also encourages customer loyalty with your customers, making them feel valued.

2. AI Personalisation Tools: AI tools can help with marketing segmentation and consumer profiling for a more tailored marketing approach. These tools can provide you with a deeper understanding of your audience, helping you develop overall engagement by personalising your content. You can even use automation to create a single customer view to create tailored content for each individual customer.

3. Pivoting Paid Media Messaging: Adatadriven strategy with ad messages tailored to user’s profile to stand out from the competition. With so many ads targeting us every single day, it’s important to cut through the noise. Rotating personalised ads to match your customer’s specific interests is a sure way to help you stand out against competitors.

4. Privacy Provisions: Lawful use of consumers’ private information is critical to maintain trust and engagement. Businesses that use cookies and data will need to be more transparent to maintain trust with consumersstrengthening relationships over time.
