Most marketers say their email automation and marketing automation skills are still a work in progress and that they are not using many features effectively, according to recent research from GetResponse and SmartInsights.

The report was based on data from a survey of 585 marketers (44% work for B2C firms, 19% for B2B firms, and 37% hybrid, B2C-B2B firms).

Some 28% of marketers rate the effectiveness of their email and marketing automation efforts as basic (don't use many features), and 16% rate them as moderate (use only core features); some 19% of marketers say they don't engage in email and marketing automation at all.

Just 8% of marketers rate the effectiveness of their email and marketing automation efforts as high (use all features and optimize for best results).

Some 29% of marketers rate their email and marketing automation skills as basic, and 28% rate their skills as intermediate.

Only 5% of marketers say they are experts in email and marketing automation.
