Workplace Revolution: 3 Key Automations

Workplace Revolution: 3 Key Automations

Automation is not a sci-fi buzzword anymore. It’s a reality that is actively transforming the way we live and work. Machines and software can do things for us, so we don’t have to. It saves us time, money, and energy, while also boosting our creativity, quality of work, and satisfaction from business decisions. In this article, we’ll explore three key areas where automation is taking the stage: IT, marketing, and customer service.


IT Automation Benefits

IT automation is the process of using software, hardware, or AI to perform tasks that would otherwise require human intervention. We know, this sounds incredibly vague and general. And that’s because IT automation can serve many different functions. For example:

Avoid errors and risks. Humans make mistakes. It’s normal. But sometimes, as we all know, those mistakes can be disastrous. Systems crashing, data losses, or getting hacked are some of those potential IT mishaps. IT automation reduces the number of those disasters by keeping our systems running safely and smoothly.

Get more done in less time. IT automation can do things faster than we can, like checking performance, sending alerts, or deploying changes. This can save you time and money, and lets you focus on more important and creative work.

Adapt to changes and challenges. IT automation helps you deal with sudden changes. For example, if you suddenly start getting more traffic, or if new technology emerges, IT automation allows you to do things across different platforms and devices, giving you more options and opportunities.


Advantages of Marketing Automation

Marketing automation is when you use software, tools, or AI to streamline your marketing stuff, like sending emails, posting on social media, or analyzing your web stats. Marketing automation can help you:

Make your customers happy and loyal. Marketing automation can help you send personalized messages to your customers based on what they like, do, or need. This can make them feel special, stick with you, and spread the word about your brand. After all, nothing like an almost handwritten letter, right?

Improve your marketing results and ROI. Marketing automation can help you measure and improve how well your marketing campaigns perform. By analyzing how many people open your emails, click your links, or convert into customers, your marketing automation can help you figure out what works and what doesn’t.


Top Marketing Automation Platforms

There are tons of marketing automation platforms out there, each one with its own pros and cons. Here are some of the best ones (a couple of whom we are certified partners with) that you might want to check out:

HubSpot: HubSpot is a one-stop shop for all your marketing needs. From email marketing, landing pages, and social media to SEO, CRM, and analytics, HubSpot is definitely a top contender. It’s flexible, easy to use, has tons of integrations, and great customer support.

Salesforce: Salesforce is a titan in the CRM world, but it also offers advanced marketing automation solutions. It offers email marketing, webinars, lead generation, and analytics. It’s a platform that offers tons of horsepower, but that means it can also be complicated, pricey, and require tech skills.

Mailchimp: Mailchimp is another big name in marketing automation. It’s most known for its capabilities as an email marketing platform, but it also offers other services like landing pages, ads, social media, e-commerce, and analytics. It’s a user-friendly and budget-friendly platform with a huge community of users and experts.


Customer Service Automation

Customer service automation is exploding in popularity and it’s easy to see why. It can help you:

Build trust with customers: Customer service automation can help us provide faster, more accurate, and more consistent responses to our customers, 24/7. This can reduce customer frustration and build customer loyalty.

Save costs and workload: Customer service automation can help you handle more. More customer chats, calls, emails, or anything else digital, with fewer people. This lowers expenses and stress levels (phew).

Gain insights and opportunities: Customer service automation can help you collect valuable data from customers. Feedback, ratings, and preferences can help you get to know your customers better and find out new ways to wow them while identifying their pain points. 

Automation is not something to be scared of or ignored. It’s a tool for you to embrace and use to your advantage. It’s there to create new opportunities for you, your business, and your customers. And it’s happening right now. If you’re ready to evolve your business, it’s time to partner up with a new, automated friend of your choosing. Good luck, and have fun!
