Marketing automation software helps your business automate its marketing functions, like lead generation, lead management, and sales campaigns.  With complex automated workflows, you can bring together different aspects of marketing and create a seamless process. Their transactional workflows, based on traditional  “if this, then that” logic, automate repetitive marketing tasks like sending emails or following up with phone calls so you can keep your focus on growing the business. 

Marketing automation can be used to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your marketing programs by identifying leads and customers Unfortunately, these platforms are often very pricey – and come with more features than the average business can really leverage. As you build your contact list, the price tag for the most popular tools may become too high to justify.

SendinBlue’s Workflows 

With SendinBlue’s marketing automation software, you can easily build a workflow that pushes out marketing content based on specific triggers or conditions. For example,  when someone visits your website for the first time in 30 days, you can set up a workflow to send them an email thanking them for stopping by and asking if they’re interested in learning more about your services/products. Furthermore, suppose you have several different products/services to promote, and each one needs its own automated campaign optimized for different audiences (the same way Google Ads campaigns are optimized). In that case, marketing automation becomes even more valuable because it will help keep all of this separate while optimizing each campaign based on those particular users’ unique behaviors.

Here are some of the most popular workflows SendinBlue offers to automate and improve your marketing processes:

  • Create new SendinBlue subscribers from new rows added to a Google Sheets spreadsheet

SendinBlue makes it simple to organize and segment new contacts as they are added to your spreadsheet for those who save their contact list in a Google Sheets Spreadsheet.

  • Create new SendinBlue subscribers from Facebook Lead Ads leads

Facebook Lead Ads are a great way to target your chosen market segment. As users interact with your ads, Facebook generates data that can be downloaded into SendinBlue to be organized and stored. 

  • Add new Shopify customers to SendinBlue contacts

If you use Shopify to handle your e-commerce, SendinBlue has a workflow that lets you automate the process of adding online customers to your contact lists and then helps you manage and nurture those leads into sales. 

  • Create SendinBlue contacts from Typeform submissions

As you create contact forms for your website and digital marketing campaigns, SendinBlue lets you upload the data you collect and organize it as part of your CRM.
