Mautic Tutorials for Beginners & Tips for Specialists

Mautic is a marketing automation software platform and the most important open source alternative to systems such as Hubspot, Pardot and Marketo. With a state-of-the-art interface, it offers all the features needed to automate processes in inbound marketing, including workflows, landing pages, e-mail / SMS / social marketing and behavior-based targeting of anonymous website visitors ("smart" or "predictive" content).
