SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Campaign Monitor, the leading provider of professional-grade email marketing and automation software for growing businesses, today introduced a new suite of marketing automation features designed for fast-growing companies. With Campaign Monitor’s new Visual Journey Designer, now every marketer is empowered to create drag-and-drop customer journeys that automatically send personalized, timely and relevant marketing offers that drive sales and business growth.
Sixty percent of marketers at today’s biggest brands in the Fortune 1,000 use marketing automation to deliver relevant messages and experiences . But smaller, growing brands have been slower to adopt marketing automation. Today, only five percent of businesses outside of the Fortune 1,000 are currently using marketing automation, yet those that do are generating outsized leads, conversions and revenue .
“Marketers want to take the manual effort out of sending campaigns to customers and prospects, but the cost and complexity of enterprise marketing automation suites make them available exclusively to the Fortune 1,000,” said Kraig Swensrud, CMO, Campaign Monitor. “With Campaign Monitor’s new marketing automation capability, now every marketer can automate marketing campaigns that will increase sales and grow their business.”
