Act Marketing Automation Training & Help
Act’s Marketing Automation is the equivalent of hiring a new Salesperson. Act Marketing Automation’s powerful email program for Act CRM includes a minimum of 2500 monthly emails with your Act CRM subscription. When people ask me About Act Marketing Automation I tell them that they have to prepare themselves to think of this tool as a completely different software from Act itself. It is my opinion that approaching it with that mindset will make your experience better. It is powerful and unique in the way you go about setting up email marketing campaigns to groups within your Act database.
Unfortunately, Act Marketing Automation is not a very intuitive email program. But it is powerful and worth learning how to use today.
I do not want to sugarcoat this: setting up campaigns and the thought that goes into creating the email content and templates can be time-consuming and a bit of work. It is very similar to the work involved in hiring and training a new salesperson. It takes imagination and a mindset to focus on the bottom line goal of that campaign you send out first and foremost. But the true beauty of Act Marketing Automation is that it builds upon itself. You gather intelligence and insights about your client base that you can use in the future. As your experience with Act Marketing Automation grows so will your confidence and Ideas for new campaigns.
