Lead nurturing, as the name say, is all about cultivating and maintaining mind share, building and sustaining interest in what you have to offer, and developing trusted relationships with those who could possibly be your next customer. Effective lead nurturing is how well your keep conversations going over time, build relationships and create customer's interest in products and/or services and then bring them (leads) to sales-ready status.

Maintaining it manually is difficult and time consuming. Automation is a quick and effective way to lead nurturing. Successful marketers do not rely solely of automation.

Once the process is clearly defined, then marketing automation comes into picture. Marketing automation help you quickly connect with your leads at various touch points. It helps you deliver right information to right prospect at right time. This process keeps a prospect engaged until he is ready for a sales call.

Doing all this manually is very very difficult plus it requires a lot of expertise. Here's how automated programs make nurturing easier

1. Set up your nurturing process as an automated program
2. You can set your program so as new leads come in, they enter your program’s beginning step via data synchronizations
3. As the program begins nurturing leads, the leads gather scores for engaging with you or your content assets. You can set an automatic handover to sales for leads that hit a certain threshold for qualification.
4. Be patient; companies with long or complex sales cycles also have long nurture cycles.
