Global Marketing Automation Software Market Covid-19 Impact

During the COVID-19 outbreak, many B2B marketing companies adopted a “play it safe” approach. They reduced the marketing budgets until they could analyze the impact on their businesses and had to wait for the economic scenario to be stable and improved. According to a survey by Hubspot, most businesses implemented a cut of 1%-25% of their marketing budgets. In Q1 of 2020, most B2B marketing companies reported budget cuts of 26%+; however, some of the budgets have been restored, resulting in overall budgetary cuts due to the pandemic. On the contrary, content channels witnessed a significant budgetary increase during the pandemic. B2B marketing businesses increasingly invested in different content formats that foster relationships, despite social distancing and lockdowns. As a result, virtual events, video content, and webinars became popular content types and significantly increased the overall budget.

In March 2020, when the pandemic affected the whole world, the Cleveland Clinic logged 60,000 telemedicine visits. It previously reported its monthly average at 3,400. Similarly, NYU Langone Health in New York saw daily virtual visits rise from 50 to 900. This digital transformation amongst sectors rose drastically. In 2019 it was estimated that 7% of Americans worked from home; by early April 2020, it was estimated that nearly half (49%) of workers were working remotely.

DriversOngoing Shift Toward Digital-based Campaigns

Over 90,000 small businesses use ActiveCampaign, which has evolved as one of the major marketing automation platforms. According to Emarsys, 3.2 billion social media users are active every day, translating to about 42% of the population. This highlights the need for businesses to conduct their marketing efforts online.

Furthermore, as per Zoominfo’s research, nearly 98% of sales representatives, who have over 5,000 LinkedIn connections, found it easy to exceed their quota through social selling. Moreover, in July 2020, Yieldify researched 400 e-commerce leaders across the United Kingdom and the United States.

ChallengesLegacy-Related Implementation Challenges

Engagement with customers is a significant challenge for all businesses. Marketing Automation Software growth has been hindered by legacy systems and the reluctance of businesses to digitize. As per Automizy, the 2020 survey of 130 business professionals suggested that the main challenge of the marketing and advertising industry was integration. Over 80% of the Fortune 500 companies were not considered for ranking since 2016. This is so because many failed to transition into an internet-based business model in the late 1990s. By getting replaced by newer, digital-native companies whose models are built for innovation and technology adoption, it is realized that an organization struggles with their legacy systems, even information technology companies.

In a similar survey of enterprise IT companies by SnapLogic, on average, 76% of IT decision-makers had data trapped in legacy systems that could not be accessed. Similarly, the marketing domain is held back by legacy systems without integration. Generally, the costs of updating and maintaining a legacy system are steep. A conventional legacy system might not integrate with new technologies, creating silos and barriers within the organization. These barriers cost huge time and money due to inefficiencies and incompatibility.
