The survey asks questions about barriers to marketing automation adoption including:

  • Cost of the marketing automation platform
  • Integration of the marketing automation platform with other systems such as CRM
  • Lack of experience with marketing automation platforms
  • Internal politics – people were not convinced we needed marketing automation
  • Articulating the marketing / sales handoff to the sales team or other leadership
  • Other priorities got in the way
  • Change management and changing the behavior of the marketing department or the sales organization
  • Demonstrating marketing automation ROI
