subscribers are some hundred people and you want to engage them
effectively and efficiently, all you need to do is make a group of them that
are eager to know about their diet plan and setup your software system
so that they get email alerts each day at a specific time. If you are a
language expert and you are running a page of a language course, let’s
say it’s ank English course and some Chinese people want to learn
English and are ready to pay for it. You can arrange the system so that
on day 1 they get notification of the basics of English language. On day
2 they get email updates about some nouns and verbs and so on.

email which is very time consuming and less efficient. Through
automatic marketing you can set reminders for yourself as well as for the
customers. Email marketing strategy is now proved to be one of the best
strategies in the business field as it helps you to engage with people
easily. You can also check the content liked by the people or the most
viewed content so that you make groups of people having common
interest and automatically arrange the required content for them. A

your brand promotion. With use of technology, all advertisement and

Unemployment is a worldwide issue. In many countries of the world, the
unemployment rate is increasing day by day. Including many factors like
population increase and less job opportunities, use of artificial
intelligence is also a major cause of it. If duties of labour is distributed
among 6 people and with artificial intelligence that work is done by a
software system alone, obviously there is no need for 6 people at work.
This simply increases the unemployment rate.
There is a disadvantage of automation that you have to buy a software
system and that costs too much. You need to have enough money in
order to set up your company, buy that system and also manage to meet
your company’s expenses. It is like an investment without the guarantee
of the cost recovery.
Many a time, the business fails due to poor marketing strategy and less
efficient automation of the system. A key reason behind this failure is
mismanagement and lack of knowledge. Also many people in the world
are not fully aware of use of technology, therefore a major chunk is not
available as a customer.
Automatic Marketing has several complications and the process is even
tangled. You need to have expertise in using technology plus the
customer and the masses should also have complete knowledge of it.
Complicated methods are always difficult to adopt and therefore
companies always tend to make the selling process easier so as to earn
a good reputation.
Thus technology has a great role in our daily life. We use a lot of
