The Scientific Case for Online Marketing That Doesn’t Get Results

We’ve become spoiled. Before the Internet, marketers had a very hard time quantifying the ROI they got from their advertising efforts. But they still did it. They knew that advertising worked, they just didn’t feel like they had a solid grasp on how, why, when, and where it worked. There wasn’t much that was highly measurable in those days, so directly tying ROI to marketing spend with any level of significant confidence was hard. Enter digital.

Customer Experience Matrix: New Marketing Automation Options for Small Business


GreenRope is all-in-one software sold primarily to very small businesses such as lawyers, real estate agents, consultant, coaches and membership organizations. That puts it firmly in Infusionsoft territory, and perhaps even towards the lower end of that.

Hatchbuck is another all-in-one product for very small businesses. It has taken the approach of providing only core features and making them as easy to use as possible. This scope covers email, Web forms, multi-step campaign flows, and CRM.

Lead Liaison calls itself “revenue generation software” to indicate that it provides more than a standard B2B marketing automation product. Additional features include lead distribution and buying signal alerts, but don’t extend to full CRM or the other operational functions.

dbSignals is brand new: the system was formally launched just last week. The system straddles B2B and B2C marketing automation, using a flexible data structure typical of B2C products but also providing Salesforce.com integration, the B2B hallmark. It also includes its own lightweight CRM. But what really distinguishes dbSignals are two features beyond the normal scope of marketing automation. The first is prospect data: the company has negotiated deals to let its clients access detailed files with 235 million consumer names and 60 million B2B names. The second feature is machine learning: the system analyzes the client’s customer list or past campaigns, builds a predictive model, runs test campaigns to validate and refine the model, and then runs a roll-out campaign once the model is stable.
