There’s no denying a fact that most of marketing tasks we get to perform cannot (or should not) be automated. You cannot automate content creation and link acquisition. You’d better stay away from automating most of relationship building tasks. You cannot fully automate customer service, loyalty building and community nurturing.
However automation can reinforce your marketing efforts and a few powerful automation tools should definitely be on your marketing agenda (especially if you value your time and mind your budget).
1. Automate Your Email Marketing with GetResponse

VCB RSS sharing feature lets you save time on adding projects: You add your RSS feed and whenever you have a new article going live, it will be automatically added to VCB.
This means, as soon as you publish an article, it gets shared by someone outside your immediate following which gives it an immediate social media boost.
Mind that ALL VCB projects go through moderation before appearing on the public dashboards which means two things:
3. Automate Your Social Media Updates with DrumUp
There are quite a few tools that allow you somehow automate your own social media sharing. I like and use a few. In this article I am sharing my most recent find which I ended up using more often than the others.
DrumUp has two features I use (which are probably not unique but I like how they are set up):
Bonus: Automate More with Zapie
Another recent discovery of mine, Zapie offers much more automation opportunities than you could imagine. It works by making any two online apps work together. Some examples of automation opportunities using Zapie:
A powerful alternative to Zapie is IFTTT (which I know is awesome but I haven’t had a chance to play with it enough).
What do you automate in your marketing? What other powerful tools are you aware of? Please share!
