Automation allows you to contact more clients and prospects more frequently with less work - all good things. The following is a list and brief description of my Top 10 Marketing Automation tools.
- AWeber - This is a service that allows me to automatically manage my email database, send auto responses to requests and send this newsletter. There are many choices for this type of service but AWeber is the best.
- TypePad - This is a hosted blog software that is simple to use but very powerful. With a Pro account you can set-up as many blogs as you wish. Blogs are great but what about using the technology as a client portal. You can password protect a TypePad blog and use it to share information and files with clients.
- AudioGenerator - Publish audio content to your website. Create audio testimonials. All you do is call a phone number, record your message like voicemail and pick-up the code to put the audio on your web site. This is a great way to get audio testimonials from clients.
- Feedburner - This is a service use to extend the power your RSS feeds. Feedburner makes the feed compatible with any reader, gives tools to promote subscriptions and even automatically alerts the major blog and RSS directories every time I add new content to my blog.
