Which Tools Does LOJO Recommend For Marketing Software and Automation?

“Productivity doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be easily boosted through a manageable combination of the right tools, resources, and habits to make the most of your time.”

Caroline Ghosn

Just like Batman’s trusty utility belt and batmobile, Captain Kirk’s Federation-issued tricorder and phaser, and Harry Potter’s holly-and-phoenix-feather wand having the right tools can indeed make all the difference. 

The simple truth is this: tools are a force multiplier. Having the right tools at your disposal allows you to accomplish more, make better use of your time, and work a lot more effectively. Generally speaking, simplify your process and connect more with marketing software and automation.

The marketing tools we’ll be covering in this guide are what we use here at LOJO, and we recommend for our clients too:

Shortly, we’ll be discussing each of these tools at greater length, and we’ll tell you what makes each of these services particularly important to your marketing efforts.

Do You Have a Growing Business?
If So, You Need To Automate Your Marketing!

Do you remember how, in the early days, when you were just starting with your business, you would be a lot more hands-on when it came to marketing, client servicing, and customer service? 

You’ll realize soon enough that the more leads you amass equal the inquiries that come in, and the more clients that need servicing, the harder it is to stay on top of things. 

Indeed, it’s a good problem to have (because you are bringing in more business, after all), but it’s still a problem nevertheless.

Entertaining one client email might be easy enough, but what happens when you have ten at once? A few dozen emails? or A couple of hundred?

When we do our marketing here at LOJO, we anticipate growth. To put it differently, at some point, you might be swimming in more leads than you can handle. 

This is why even at such an early stage of your business, we encourage developing a proper inbound marketing strategy, coupled with market-effective techniques and tactics to boost sales and visibility, aided with the use of the best marketing tools available to help set you up for success.

The Importance of
Marketing Software and Automation

As a business owner, nothing quite gives you a better sense of joy and accomplishment than growing your business from scratch– lead by lead, sale by sale.

After all, quite possibly your most valuable business asset is your marketing database. How well you manage, nurture, and utilize your database of leads greatly impacts your future as a business.

For those practicing Inbound Marketing, marketing automation greatly helps in nurturing your leads steadily towards conversions.

After your content marketing strategies, online ads, and SEO efforts draw in the visitors. Marketing automation keeps track of all your leads, taking note of where they are precisely in the buyer’s journey, then serves personalized and relevant content to nudge them further down until they finally reward you with their business.

Bottom line: marketing automation aids greatly in converting more leads to sales. By being more effective in nurturing your leads, you also optimize marketing spend.

When it comes to Marketing Automation Tools, we recommend using either of these two:

Other Marketing Tools

Aside from our two recommended marketing automation tools, there are also a good number of applications we use to take care of other aspects of our overall digital marketing strategy.

In our experience, we’ve tried quite a number of service providers, applications, and other software ourselves. Some have come and gone, others have been steady favorites even through all these years.

Similarly, if and when we do discover a new, brilliant piece of software, there is no doubt we’ll be sharing it with our clients and partners as well.

In the meantime, here are the other digital marketing tools we commonly make use of (and recommend) here at LOJO:

Here are  a few of our other favorite digital marketing tools:

Review Llama

A lot of businesses don’t quite realize how important reviews really are. Even if you’re catering to a very niche base of customers or serving a particular locale, it’s almost certain that your clients, as well as potential new visitors, are looking you up online.

According to a survey by Search Engine Land, 72% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from real people. Reviews are more well-received than advertisements or press releases. 

Furthermore, reviews not only contribute to your online visibility, but they also build trust– which is not just great for business but also contributes greatly to your SEO.

Reviews also allow you direct access to what your customers really think about you. Truly, as far as marketing goes, reviews do carry a great deal of weight. Reviews create social proof, after all. And social proof ultimately drives purchases.

So how do we now get as many positive customer reviews as possible? 

Review Llama is LOJO’s own special software for managing local reviews. It helps get your customers to spread the good word about your business on the sites that matter,  tactfully asking and reminding customers for feedback and guiding them through the online review process.

By encouraging review etiquette, Review Llama aims to further amplify your good reviews in the public eye, while keeping valuable critique in private.

Review Acquisitions

  • Creation of landing page or an easy-to-use widget on a designated page on your website.
  • Widget embeddable in email for acquisitions
  • Enabled Positive Vs.
  • Negative feedback flow
  • Reviews generated on review sites

Review Request Campaigns

  • Set up of 1 customized email timing sequence
  • SMS Messaging (Additional Cost: starts at $8 a month)
  • Offline review invitations available

Aggregation

  • Auto–publish positive reviews to your website
  • Auto share positive reviews to social media
  • Embeddable aggregate rating with rich-snippet markup

Reporting

  • Anytime Reports Available

Email Marketing

Email marketing is an oft-overlooked marketing strategy for many small businesses. Even if it’s a (relatively) old tactic, email marketing continues to be an important part of any solid digital marketing campaign. Here’s why:

Here at LOJO, we primarily use one of two email marketing solutions for our digital marketing campaigns: Mailchimp or Constant Contact.  

They’re both extremely popular, have a wealth of functions and features, and either one can greatly help your business get in touch with prospects, market products, and re-engage past customers through email. 

Mailchimp

There’s so much to love about MailChimp: high delivery rates, sleek and modern easy-to-use templates, tons of customization options and  A/B testing, just to name a few. 

Some of its most notable advantages over most other email marketing services include:

  • Our email marketing service provides real-time tracking tools that report who’s opening, clicking, and sharing your emails—so you can plan your next steps.
  • For even more effective email marketing campaigns: Segment contacts based on the content they click to create more targeted lists and deliver more relevant emails. While you’re at it, reach more fans by automatically posting emails to your social networks.

This way, you can have all the phone numbers you need for your business at a significantly lower cost. You get the advantages of e-mail-based voice mail, the ability to take your VoIP phone number with you anywhere in the world, as well as a wealth of other great features.
