David Hurley (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dbhurley) is a co-founder of Mautic, an open source marketing automation platform that is rapidly gaining popularity.
If you're familiar with the way that WordPress is setup, Mautic has a similar structure. There's the Mautic.org (https://www.mautic.org/) version of the project which develops the core open source platform. In addition, you have the Mautic.com (https://mautic.com/) version of Mautic which offers a free hosted version and premium upgrades. Also, there is a growing marketplace of theme, plugin, and support providers available to help your business take Mautic to the next level.
It's possible to replace your MailChimp ($9/mo) and LeadPages ($25/mo) with the free version of Mautic.
If you want to upgrade to the unlimited package with Mautic, that will only cost you $120/year.
Now, before you start thinking this is a push for a freemium product. Keep in mind that Mautic is open source and you could always install the software on your own server for free (well, you have to pay for the server and IT person).
Mautic offers marketing automation comparable to:
Marketo - $1,195 per month HubSpot - $200 per month ($600 setup fee) Pardot - $1,000 per month Act-On - $600 per month SalesFusion - $950 per month Since Mautic is poised to disrupt the marketing automation industry, it's important that the Raleigh SEO Meetup take the time to learn about how this platform can impact our businesses - and clients.
Did I mention there is a white label version and an agency version of Mautic planned to be launched early in 2016?
This presentation will have as much to offer agencies as it will educate new internet marketers.
If there is space available for this event, you should RSVP now because this event will fill up fast.
The RSVP system on Meetup is only for people that will be at the venue in person.
