So WHO uses marketing automation?
COMPANY SIZES: Large enterprises have long found value in the technology, but it’s important to point out that marketing automation isn’t just for big companies. In fact, Small and Mid- Sized Businesses (SMBs) make up the largest growing segment in the marketing automation technology space right now. (That’s any company with between £5 and £500 million in annual revenue.) And thousands of companies even smaller than that use marketing automation as well.
INDUSTRIES: Companies across all industries are using it. The early adopters were primarily in “business-to- business” (B2B) industries such as high-tech / software, manufacturing, and business services. But increasingly, companies across all categories – including “business-to-consumer” (B2C) industries such as healthcare, nancial services, media and entertainment, and retail – are adopting marketing automation for its real-time, relationship- oriented approach to maintaining and extending customer relationships.
