Marketing automation is more than just a buzzword – it’s a way businesses can flirt with their customers writes Mellissah Smith.

You walk into your favourite restaurant and at a glance lock eyes with something beautiful. You muster up all your courage and risk stumbling over your words as you begin the conversation with your breathtaking prospect. I know what you’re thinking, but I’m not speaking of a potential relationship between a man or woman. In fact, the prospect in your sights is possibly your next new customer. There is no denying that in business your approach is everything. Similar to the lives of all single people, we must flirt with our customers, begin the conversation, maintain friendly communication and close the deal. So, just how do we flirt?

Marketing automation is the new wooing machine, with every single element of the marketing mix taken into account. It allows you to create chemistry with your potential customer by enticing interaction.

Ah marketing – the bane of many business owners’ calendars. We’ve got to do it, but it takes precious time and resources away from what we really love doing – which is working with our clients.

By learning to do marketing in a smart way, and to create low-cost strategies with results you can measure, you can actually cut down on the time spent marketing, and focus on the techniques that WORK for your business. And one of the best ways to learn about what is and isn’t working in marketing is to read marketing blogs. You get all the information you need in blog-sized chunks, and you’re able to access the top marketing minds without having to pay them thousands in consulting fees.

How much of the family connection needs to go into the marketing of a family business? The argument in favour goes like this: a good corporate reputation is essential for success. The idea of ‘family’ suggests stability, which translates into quality service and high integrity. The result: trust and loyalty among customers and a better reputation.

The global financial crisis may have many business owners running scared but, according to marketing dynamo Mellissah Smith, it could cost them dearly.

An EO Melbourne member and the Founder and Chief Executive of Marketing Eye, Smith said defensive strategies in these troubled times were gifting valuable customers to more aggressive competitors.

“I think the current global downturn creates opportunities for lateral-thinking business owners.”

Smith agreed businesses needed to trim the fat from expenses.

“Cutbacks in this environment are inevitable, and marketing staff are always on the firing line.”

But she warned that ill-conceived cutbacks could prove costly in the long term.
