There are a lot of repetitive tasks that can be automated for online businesses. Marketing automation platforms and software solutions can create hands-off sales and marketing systems and are often fairly inexpensive.
This Resource Page includes articles related to marketing automation software including autoresponders and ecommerce solutions. Reviews are also included.
BusinessBolts.com Recommends the Following Marketing Automation Solutions:
- Aweber is an email only customer follow-up solution. It’s an autoresponder that allows you to send out automated messages as well as broadcasts.
- 1ShoppingCart is an ecommerce solution. It’s designed for people who sell products or services and want to follow up with their prospects and customers. They also have a built in affiliate management system.
- Infusionsoft is an ecommerce solution including an affiliate management system + a ‘smart autoresponder’. It allows for far more segmentation and customization of automated follow-up. You can also get a trimmed down version with just the ‘smart autoresponder if you’re not offering products or services.
Please note that the links above are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you decide to buy based on my referral (there is no extra charge to you). I’ve used all of the above systems. The BusinessBolts.com newsletter currently runs through Infusionsoft.
