With the advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI), there are many tasks you can automate instead of wasting time doing them manually.
Thus, business automation provides a platform for businesses to save time wasted on manual tasks while increasing the efficiency of those tasks.

A new year is coming our way, along with resolutions and new goals for our businesses to keep on blooming!
There’s no better way to start the new year than learning from experience from the past. Here are some lessons learned during 2018 that will help you start 2019 in the right direction.
To deliver an effective marketing campaign, you need to plan ahead and make improvements along the way. If your campaign is well-executed, your business will definitely generate leads and customers.
If you approach your campaign without a proper strategy to execute it professionally, you’ll waste both time and money.
According to HubSpot, 28% of salespeople do not think their organization’s marketing strategy is effective. Results matter. If your campaign fails to deliver the right results, you may not be motivated to do it again.
If you’re serious about marketing and growing your business using digital marketing strategies, then you need a marketing budget. You simply can’t do without it.
Most small business owners think they don’t need a budget because they assume that their investments are too small.
But that’s not true.
Funny enough, the core reason why your investment may seem small is lack of effective planning, or not creating a budget. You just spend money and accept anything as it comes.
Don’t run your business like that.
A budget helps you to build a firm structure around your marketing investments so that you can get good returns on them as well as increase their worth over time.
That said, let’s discuss some best practices for setting an effective marketing budget that facilitates sustainable business growth.
Digital marketing gets better every day. Because marketers are always looking for better means to convince and convert customers. They are looking for new strategies and refining the old ones so that they can have a competitive advantage in business.
You know that this “advantage” would mean more customers, which results in more profits and a better business. Isn't that what you want?
As exciting as this may sound, a study by SmartInsights found that 49% of organizations have no clear digital marketing strategy. Furthermore, HubSpot reveals 39% of marketers think their organization’s marketing strategy isn’t effective.
This is why you need to improve upon your strategies in 2018 to get your business ahead of the tough competition.
That being said, I want to show you some of the proven digital marketing strategies that will bring real results this year.
Lead generation is vital to the growth of a business.
Actively pursuing leads through an effective marketing strategy is a great way to increase conversion rates and ROI. Some strategies have proven to be effective, but a few missing elements could cause potential leads to slip away.
There are several common mistakes companies make that can hamper their lead generation attempts.
Small businesses face a difficult start without a firm grasp of modern marketing. Some modern marketing tools are very efficient and cost-effective for fledgling businesses. Unfortunately, many new business owners simply assume that it’s “too soon” to start heavily marketing. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
New business owners usually wear several hats in the beginning stages of their companies. Starting a new business is extremely demanding in any industry, so it’s important to understand the role marketing plays early on. For example, investing early in brand awareness can help attract top talent who want to be part of something new and exciting. Additionally, early investments in marketing typically pay off tremendously in the long run. Your first customers are likely going to become regulars if they have a good first experience.
This last weekend I attended one of the most amazing digital marketing conferences there is in the world, the Traffic & Conversion Summit 2017 in San Diego, California - organized by DigitalMarketer.com. It’s a conference designed for more advanced and experienced marketers and marketing agencies, rather than for people looking to get started in digital marketing. The speakers dig deep into marketing strategy, things that work and don’t work, the exploration and testing of new technology and much more.

Do keep in mind that approximately half or two thirds of the sessions were led by the internal team members of DigitalMarketer.com
If you’re feeling the strain of the daily grind in running a business, you’re not alone. Many entrepreneurs and small business owners try to take on too much, which can end up negatively affecting the business in the long run.
Small business owners typically wear several hats, especially in the early days of running the company. Most startups don’t have the financial security to hire staff to handle IT support, payroll, marketing, customer service, and various other aspects of the business. Most of the basic tasks of this nature will fall to the owner or founders until business picks up steam and they gain the liquidity they need to hire staff.
