Which Tools Does LOJO Recommend For Marketing Software and Automation?
Just like Batman’s utility belt and batmobile, and Captain Kirk’s tricorder and phaser, in digital marketing the right tools can also allow you to accomplish more, make better use of your time, and increase your productivity.
At LOJO, we have a roster of digital marketing software and automation tools that can simplify your process, reduce your overhead cost, and ultimately drive your sales.
Jump To a Sector!
Tools of the Trade:
Below is the list of marketing software and automation tools that we recommend to our clients and partners. (We also use these programs in our digital marketing efforts.)
Do You Have a Growing Business?
If So, You Need To Automate Your Marketing!
Instead of hiring more staff or spreading yourself thin by doing everything yourself (a common mistake of solo entrepreneurs), it is better to automate your marketing. Not only will you accomplish more, but you can also focus more on your core business functions.
Here at LOJO, we anticipate growth and so we prefer marketing tools that are not just efficient but also scalable. In fact, even if you’re still at the early business stage, we recommend that you start designing an inbound marketing strategy that boosts brand awareness and sales.
In a nutshell, marketing automation combines software and strategy in which the main goal is to nurture your target audience with valuable, personalized contents that will delight them and eventually convert them into actual customers.
The benefits of the right marketing automation tools:
The Importance of
Marketing Software and Automation
Marketing automation has leveled the playing field that it has allowed small and medium enterprises or SMEs to compete with bigger, more established companies.
Automation tools are also ideal for side hustlers and solo entrepreneurs who are often burned out for having to wear many hats just to keep their business running. The problem with this setup is that they often overlook the importance of creating a consistent and connected customer experience, which is the goal of these “intelligent” programs.
When it comes to marketing automation tools, we recommend using either of these two:

HubSpot Marketing Suite
HubSpot Marketing Suite is ideal if you’re an established brand with a budget to spare. This is a comprehensive, top-of-the-line marketing automation solution that is versatile and scalable, which makes it great for companies expecting growth in terms of market reach and sales.
The list below explains the selling points of HubSpot platform:
What you can do with the HubSpot Marketing Suite:
Turn lead nurturing on autopilot mode with email drip campaigns.
Automated email campaigns allow you to stay in touch with your target audience and previous customers. These personalized emails are sent out on specific timelines and/or based on user actions like after signing up for an account.
In a nutshell, drip emails are about giving the right information to the right people at the right time, which makes them one of the most effective digital marketing tactics. In fact, a recent survey has shown that a well-executed email marketing campaign can produce 18 times more sales than a “generalized broadcast.”
Create personalized workflows.
Marketing automation workflows are the key to build better customer relationships, improve conversion rates, and ultimately drive your sales. While these “goals” require different complex processes, a personalized workflow can deliver them quickly and efficiently.
Your workflow automates manual tasks based on pre-set rules. For instance, it sends an email when a potential client signs up for a newsletter, visits your website, and/or contacts your customer service.
Automate Other Time-Consuming Tasks.
Aside from emails, marketing automation allows you to further streamline the processes involved in customer relationships. For example, your sales team is notified to follow up with a contact who performs the desired action (e.g., post an inquiry or ask about pricing).
Other Marketing Tools
Aside from the two marketing automation tools we recommend–i.e., LOJO Marketing Automation Software and HubSpot Software Suite–we also use other applications that further enhance our digital marketing strategy.
With our 20 years’ experience, we have tried and tested a number of applications and service providers to manage our marketing campaigns. Some were just a temporary fix, but others have been our steady favorites.
We have been constantly testing and discovering new software to make sure that our clients and partners remain up-to-date on the latest programs that can help them increase their productivity and reduce their overhead cost at the same time.
Meanwhile, the following list includes our favorite digital marketing tools that we recommend to our clients based. Take note that we are confident to endorse these apps because of our first-hand experience with them.
Here are a few of our other favorite digital marketing tools:
Review Llama is a platform that focuses on managing and automating your online reviews, allowing you to improve your visibility and boost your credibility.
You might be already aware that customer reviews can make or break your business. One survey released by Search Engine Land has even shown that 72% of consumers trust online reviews as much as recommendations from friends and family.
A separate survey also showed that people trust online customer reviews 12 times more than the product description.
Regardless of the types of reviews you get, Review Llama can help you boost your online visibility and positive word of mouth by systematically driving customers to the review sites of your choice. Also, it lets you know any negative feedback, which gives you an opportunity to regain the trust of some unhappy customers.
By encouraging review etiquette, Review Llama aims to further amplify your good reviews in the public eye, while keeping valuable critique in private.

Email marketing is often an overlooked marketing strategy for small businesses despite studies showing that it is remarkably effective in driving sales. In fact, a study conducted by McKinsey & Company has shown that it is 40 times more effective than social media in terms of reach, and leads to a buying process that is three times faster than popular social platforms.
Email marketing is a more personalized way to reach your target audience, which makes it effective in boosting your sales even with a small budget.
The list below explains the other notable benefits of a well-executed email marketing campaign:
