Marketing is the lifeblood of any business, powering growth and paving the way to success. But let's face it - getting it right can be a real challenge. There are many moving parts to consider, from lead generation, content and campaign management to measuring results. It can be tough to know where to focus your energy to get the biggest bang for your buck. With all these tasks vying for your attention, it's no wonder that many marketers feel like they're drowning in a sea of emails, spreadsheets, and never-ending to-do lists.
But fear not, because automation is the key to reducing these disconnected manual tasks. In fact, a recent survey found that over 30% of marketers would like to automate tasks like data entry and tracking, while another 28% are eager to automate lead management.
That's where Dynamics 365 Marketing comes in, offering easy-to-use tools that can help streamline your marketing efforts and boost conversion rates. So, if you're looking to simplify your workload and increase your ROI, Dynamics 365 Marketing is the solution for you.
1. Unlocking the Power of Personalisation
Let's get personal! In today's digital world, personalisation is king. Did you know that 80% of customers are more likely to engage with a brand if they're offered a personalised experience? And that's not all - 68% of people are happy to share their personal data in exchange for a personalised experience. It's clear that customers want messages that speak to their individual needs and preferences.

Did you know that 80% of marketing professionals believe that having automation software is a key ingredient to improving lead nurturing performance?
