4 Common Mistakes to Avoid in Marketing Automation

May 2, 2024

When implementing marketing automation, there are a few common mistakes that can easily be prevented. Keep the four points outlined below in mind to make the best use of marketing automation, as a powerful tool in your company's arsenal. Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Mistake 1: Rushing Keyword Changes

When it comes to search terms (keywords), less is sometimes more. Constantly adding new keywords might seem like a good idea — especially if you assume that more keywords will lead to better search engine rankings. But unfortunately this is not always the case. There are cases where this can backfire.

Don't just focus on quantity, but above all on the relevance and context of your keywords. Conduct thorough keyword research to identify the search terms that match the search intent of your target audience. Incorporate these keywords organically into your content to ensure a seamless user experience while optimising for SEO.

If you make too many changes in a short time, such as removing keywords or optimizing too early, it may be that the search terms haven't had the time to prove themselves at all. Rome wasn't built in a day, nor is it a successful SEO campaign. Give yourself, your campaigns, and your SEO strategy enough time to collect enough time to collect sufficient data before making significant adjustments. Patience and well-thought-out strategic planning, based on data, often lead to better results than impulsive changes.

Mistake 2: Rushing Testing Phases

Testing is super important if you want your marketing campaigns and automations to be a solid success. Many marketers are in a hurry and want to get everything done quickly, especially when deadlines are tight or they want to see fixed results. But if you skip testing, it can really backfire — you'll miss opportunities and perhaps make costly mistakes. And that's exactly what you don't want, because automation is supposed to make everything more efficient and accurate, right?

So take the time to test. Do proper A/B tests, check the results, and readjust your automation processes accordingly. And don't forget: testing is an endurance run that keeps you on track.

It's not just about launching campaigns quickly or keeping them running, but also about making sure they really deliver. By testing and adapting, you set yourself up for long-term success in the ever-changing world of digital marketing.

Mistake 3: Blind Faith in Automation

Automation is great and can save you a lot of work and time, but it's not infallible. You can't just set them up and then forget about them. If you just rely on automation without taking a look at it, it can pretty much backfire. What works great today may not work tomorrow because the market and customers are constantly evolving or because something changes in the software or an algorithm.

If your automations don't run as you expected, you need to intervene immediately. Waiting for the problem to resolve itself is not a good idea and can jeopardize all your marketing efforts. You need manual control from time to time to keep up with trends and adjust your strategies. That might sound contradictory and like a lot of effort at first, but the point is that you spend your time on the strategy and not on the small details.

That's why it's smart to use tools like Shopstory to set up automatic notifications if your campaign performance drops below a certain point. This way, you can immediately check what is not running smoothly. The combination of human intuition and data-based insights makes for an unbeatable team.

Mistake 4: Using the Wrong Automation Tool

The wrong choice of automation tool can really slow down your marketing efforts. It's not just about grabbing any tool, but the right one that really fits your needs. Many marketers simply opt for a tool because it's trendy or because everyone knows it, without even checking whether it fits their goals or not.

For example, some tools are great for email marketing, but rather unsuitable for performance marketing or ecommerce systems. Others may have advanced analysis features, but are totally cumbersome.

Before you decide on a tool, definitely do your homework and check how well it fits into your existing systems and processes. Think of things like scalability, adaptability, customer support, onboarding, and how easy it is to use. Even the strongest tool is useless if your team doesn't understand how to use all the features. Ultimately, marketing automation should make your processes leaner and boost efficiency – and the right tool is the basis for this.

Conclusion

So when navigating the jungle of marketing automation, be sure to proceed carefully. There are a few pitfalls that you can easily plan how to avoid them in advance. If you dodge these common mistakes – such as using too many keywords, rushing the test phase, blindly relying on automation without checking it, or simply using the wrong tool — you can really get the most out of your automation campaigns.
