It’s a common theme we see time and time again. The initial impact that Marketing Automation makes on any marketing department that has left spreadsheets, ad hoc emails and manual reporting behind.
Naturally, moving from manual to automated represents a significant time saving. It reduces the administrative burden on teams and enables the creation of sophisticated and accurate reporting at the click of a button – literally.
But what happens beyond this initial honeymoon phase – when the magic of marketing automation becomes the new norm?
For starters, the shiny new features become tried, tested, and trusted tools. As expectations and demands start to rise throughout the business, demands on the Marketing Automation platform start to increase. And before you know it, the technology that was once heralded as a game changer is now struggling to keep pace with business ambitions… and in some cases, is no longer fit for purpose.
Why MAP migration doesn’t have to be difficult
While the thought of moving away from an established platform might fill you with dread (especially if you did the hard yards with setting the system up in the first place), it doesn’t have to be difficult.
With the right preparation and planning, transitioning to a new platform that better caters for your current and future needs will enable you to keep making progress, and ultimately make your life easier in the long run.
So, just how easy would it be for you to migrate to a new MAP?
