To Automate or Not…
Love it or hate it, automation is here to stay.
For us marketers, it’s not a bad thing (until all of our jobs are taken by bots). 🤖 Let’s face it though, our jobs are safe for quite a while.🤞🏼
When we talk about the ‘Pros’ of automation, a few come to mind.
- A/B testing abilities
- A feedback loop between your sales and marketing team
Considering we’re ‘glass half-full’ kind of folks here at Carney, we’re gonna lean into the positives and discuss some ways to use automation.
- Post Scheduling: We all know social media is a grind. It requires constant attention, strategic planning, and meticulous scheduling. Luckily, there are a ton of tools to use for scheduling purposes. Pro tip: plan out your social media posts at least 2 weeks in advance, so you aren’t making decisions on the fly.
- Mention Tracking: There’s no need to waste time digging through search results looking for mentions of your brand. Why? Because Google Alerts is free and effortless to set up. Pro tip: Start using Google Alerts.
- Ad Retargeting: We already know you’re using a Facebook pixel on your website 😉, so why not give folks an extra nudge to convert? Pro tip: Set up some retargeting ads to folks who are engaging with your site.
