Autopilot is well known for its marketing software and while the Autopilot platform is great at building customer communication workflows, it requires other key components such as CRM, lead capture forms, landing pages, to be added as third party integrations which can be a barrier for many businesses. Luckily there are easy to use competitors such as Jumplead that as an all-in-one system includes these features. Allowing a deeper level of integration and enabling a range of benefits such as comprehensive automatic lead scoring, lead tracking and progressive profiling.

Let's start by comparing an 'all-in-one' approach to marketing automation with the 'marketing stack' approach used by Autopilot.

Why is most marketing automation 'All-in-one' software

With very few exceptions, marketing automation systems take an 'all-in-one' approach, this is to provide a deep and consistent level of integration between all of the key components, passing data and tracking activity, making scoring calculations based upon activity and then triggering changes in connected systems.

The components that are part of this connected 'core functionality' generally include web forms, landing pages, website tracking, contact management and CRM features.

Through this deep level of integration features such as 'Progressive profiling' that allow you to dynamically question and profile leads over many months and across web forms and interactions are possible.

Also, centralised lead scoring based upon a global set of rules can be applied consistently. Without this deep level of connection and with interactions spread across many third party systems in a 'marketing stack' approach, this central view is lost.

Visitor identification

Most marketing automation systems also come with useful B2B tools, for example; when someone visits your website they are usually fairly anonymous, it is possible to identify the organisation for some visitors giving you useful insights. Particularly if you are taking an account based marketing approach.

Landing pages, web forms and Popups for lead generation

Lead generation is a core component of marketing automation which is why landing pages and conversion forms are included in the software to convert visitors into leads.

Then when this happens we need to keep our contact records up to date as well as triggering email nurture sequences and other automation workflows.

Autopilot requires you to have a separate CRM to manage your contact information, adding to the complexity and overall cost. Jumplead as well as other all-in-one systems manages this data allowing you to access customer records within the system.

What's more adding custom contact fields that apply to all of your contacts can be easily dragged into the web forms and landing pages you build. Because they are all part of the same system.

And not spread across several disparate apps.



Particularly for B2B businesses it's incredibly important to be able to capture information over a period of time (it can take 6 months to qualify a B2B lead) so having an onboard CRM to collect, store and manage information about your leads is an important requirement.

This is where a deep level of integration between landing page software, embedded forms and popups is crucial. Jumplead uses progressive profiling to automatically deliver the next unknown questions for your custom contact fields over time to best qualify you leads.

Marketing tools needed for your marketing automation process

So a good list of features and tools you'll need to implement a marketing strategy would be:

  • Website Content Management System. WordPress works well for this, but anything that allows you to add JavaScript is good (most existing websites are fine).
  • Landing Pages and Lead Capture Forms. Custom sub-domains are handy for landing pages, and the ability to use shortcodes for WordPress if that's yous CMS.
  • Lead Nurturing and Autoresponders. These are essential for you to follow up on lead activity such as form completions, email opens and page visits.

  • Social media integration and monitoring. To identify the social accounts of your leads and to monitor activity for leads.
  • Personalisation. This includes being able to use merge tags in emails and create content and messaging based upon segmentation (for example, by sales stage).
  • Contact management CRM. As your leads are active on your website and opening your emails etc. You need to see their activity as part of their onboard CRM profile page.
  • Live chat and messaging. While this isn't a must have for marketing automation, it's a great inbound mechanism particularly for SMB's.

Core marketing automation benefits

Marketing automation can work very well when implemented properly, the ability to personalise and nurture effectively for extended periods of time particularly when you are using a service that supports progressive profiling (such as Jumplead and Autopilot) guarantees you make the most out every lead you generate.

What is progressive profiling?

Progressive profiling allows you to ask a range of questions over a period of time across multiple conversion forms without specifying which questions are on which form. This prevents duplication, reduces the size of your forms and increases conversion rates.

Conclusion

If you are focused primarily on building a workflow and need to use certain landing page, popup, web form and live chat software then Autopilot's 'marketing stack' approach makes great sense. However if you value an integrated set of functionality at a lower cost, then a system like Jumplead would be worth investigating. Why not compare Jumplead with Autopilot on TrustRadius.

How awesome is Jumplead Marketing Automation for agencies?
Jumplead dominates their market segment and price point so completely, when I got their demo, I shut down our in-house software and migrated all our clients over. Although we had invested 3 years and over $50,000 we were unable to deliver even 1/20th the value that Jumplead provides.

Janne Halla-aho
Product Manager, Praecom Oy
