Managing B2B marketing automation in 2019

CommuniGator and Smart Insights present the latest research on adoption of Marketing Automation within the B2B sector

How will this guide help me and my business?

You know the promise of Marketing Automation - it should enable marketers to increase return on investment by delivering more relevant, targeted prospect and customer communications across the customer lifecycle. But what is the reality for Business-to-business (B2B) marketers as they have implemented Marketing Automation? How many businesses are using different features of Marketing Automation, which challenges have they faced, what are the success factors and what results have they achieved?

This new B2B Benchmarking research from SmartInsights.com in collaboration with our research partner CommuniGator aims to show the current drivers and barriers for B2B adoption of Marketing Automation and how it is used in practice 'in the real-world'.
