Here’s where you think about tone, also.

It’s important that you take the time to explain your business, why you need marketing automation, and how you expect to use it. This is something better done before the demo, either in an RFI (request for information) or in initial discussions with vendors.
Marketing historically has marched to its own drummer, at best unevenly supporting strategy handed down from headquarters and, more commonly, pursuing brand or marketing goals (such as growing brand equity) that were not directly related to the overall business strategy.
For example, if you realize that you are getting a lot of traffic (based on Google Analytics data) on days that you boost Facebook posts and/or advertise on social media, this may be something that you want to spend more money on. Similarly, if you realize that you really need to have someone dedicating a full workweek of effort to marketing (in most cases, you do) then you may want to allocate some of your marketing budget to pay a marketing manager.
The budgeting process is usually a grind; an exercise in psychological warfare since performance data is lacking to support what marketing wants to do. Marketing has to settle for incremental funding increases in good” years, and if it wants to do something ambitious outside the status quo, funding approval is daunting.
