LoopFuse Captures More Web Traffic Data

Customer Experience Matrix

Summary: LoopFuse has extended its system to capture more Web traffic data, which lays the foundation for future analytics. LoopFuse recently released its latest enhancements, which it somewhat grandiosely labels as making it “ the First and Only Marketing Automation Solution with Inbound Marketing ”. Although LoopFuse might eventually add those functions, it hasn't yet and isn’t necessarily moving in that direction.

LoopFuse Offers Free Marketing Automation System: Another Step Towards Industry Consolidation

Customer Experience Matrix

Summary: LoopFuse has launched a free entry-level version of its marketing automation system. LoopFuse today promised to “transform” the marketing automation industry by offering a free version of its system. In practice, this means that only very small companies will actually be able to use the free system as their primary long-term marketing system. LoopFuse knows that, of course. But LoopFuse may have been more focused than anyone else.

Beyond that, Raghaven cited several narrow benefits, including the chance of converting Marketbright customers to Act-On, the business knowledge and skills of key Marketbright employees, and some design features of the Marketbright system. According to Act-On CMO David Applebaum, most buyers have 35 to 50 employees, which puts them firmly in the small business category. For what it’s worth, Genius and LoopFuse seem satisfied with their freemium results.

Why Is B2B Marketing Automation Growing So Slowly?

Customer Experience Matrix

For example, LoopFuse reported 42% of respondents had marketing automation in place, a Forrester study reported 45% use among B2B enterprise marketers, and the Lenskold Group found 70% marketing automation usage.* I’ve excluded business under $5 million revenue from this analysis because that’s a very different market. A BuyerZone survey returned 13% usage, although it probably included mostly small businesses. ** Here's the Manta data if you want to play along at home.
