When done correctly, marketing automation reduces the gap between your people. The key is to understand you must put your efforts as a collaborative.

As a small business owner using a marketing automation solution, your marketers track your prospects habits as they go through your website, then use that information to determine when your leads are sales ready.

Top quality leads are then passed to sales. Your sales people engage with the leads and convert them with proper optimized customer strategy.

If your sales people encounter someone who is not ready to buy, it is important for them to knock that customer back to your marketing people to continued to be nurtured until the right time comes.

Marketing automation helps greatly with sales and marketing alignment. This is not just about enabling your marketing people to provide your sales people with leads that will convert. It is how your sales and marketing people pass leads back and forth as needed for the specific leads in question.
