Marketing automation encompasses many functions and service. It would be useful to have a tool to help build funnels.
A graphical interface where you can drag and drop specific functions connected to external services (Facebook, Google, etc.) and have the basic building blocks (tracking pixels, campaigns, etc.) built for you at these services (using their APIs), all based on your design.
To find out new communication channels to each one, their email address, phone number, etc.
Build an automated system that polls the Facebook API for all the data on new fans. Then use other external services’ and their APIs to gather new information. The system can then connect to your other marketing automation services to feed them the new information. It can also build aggregate sub-segments based on demographic and psychographic groups it finds of fans that are very similar to each other.
Be able to send up to 1 million emails per day for less than $100 per month.
Have a “push button” install of a server that includes everything needed. Have an API for connecting with all major email automation providers.
