Businesses today are no longer competing against each other; they’re competing against speed!

In today’s digital business world, to be a winner, it is imperative to implement a powerful data analysis that clearly shows the activity and links between your business outcome and your customer’s journey. Organizations that participate in data-driven marketing and operations hold a distinct advantage for customer acquisition and retention. 

Marketing leaders understand that fostering a strong relationship with customers drives sales, and the sales team can cross-sell and upsell multiple offerings across various services. A consistent marketing strategy powered by enterprise tools such as Salesforce Marketing Cloud adds value to your business and boosts your marketing and sales team’s efficiency.

What is Salesforce Marketing Cloud, and how effective is it for B2B and B2C marketers?

Salesforce Marketing Cloud is an enterprise-grade digital platform that helps optimize marketing efforts and allows you to personalize every customer experience. With Salesforce Marketing Cloud, you can customize customer touchpoints, automate marketing activities, and build multi-channel journeys to connect with customers. The Marketing Cloud provides an array of add-on features and integrated solutions such as email studio, social studio, mobile studio, interaction studio, advertising studio, content management, and creation to personalize every marketing activity.

Touchpoints and benefits of Salesforce Marketing Cloud:

    • Organize cross-channel marketing campaigns to deliver relevant and meaningful content to customers.
    • Create targeted customer journeys and personalized customer interactions based on real-time customer behavior. 
    • Analyze each campaign’s data and customers’ behavior under one intuitive dashboard to fuel your opportunity pipeline.  
    • Create impact analysis through measurement of data from customer journeys collected from different channels and devices. Marketing Cloud uses AI and third-party data to create impact analysis.
    • Improve operational efficiency and generate better leads with marketing automation. The automation tool simplifies email activity, file transfer activity, and data verification.

Enables data-driven messaging across channels

Salesforce Marketing Cloud delivers individualized messages to each contact based on their behavioral data and past interaction with the brand. You can have multiple paths based on contact and journey data. The journey data demonstrates how a contact has interacted with the marketing cloud journey. The journey data assist in multiple ways:

    • After a purchase, customers may receive multiple emails. The journey data tool detects whether customers open or interact with the corresponding mail and configures further emails based on their behavior.
    • If a prospect is converted into a customer, the Marketing Cloud removes the contact from the prospect path (list of data) and passes it to the new-customer journey path for further interactions.

Supports multi-channel messaging for pre and post purchases

The journey builder in the marketing cloud allows you to develop journeys that consist of direct mailing, messaging service, and post-purchase communication with customers. The multi-channel messaging service supports customer service-related inquiries quickly. It also helps in post communication services such as product delivery information, shipment status, registration, and more. 

Salesforce Marketing Automation provides critical benefits:

  • It empowers marketers to construct messages based on each customer’s engagement level and target them with a simplified customer buying journey. 
  • The Marketing Cloud provides a better understanding of your customers with a detailed dashboard including demographics of the marketing activity and buyers’ behavior. 
  • The powerful analytical tool gives a clear view of your marketing results in real time. The analytical tool helps to understand the engagement factor, social impact, and overall spending.
  • With tools such as journey builder, email studio, and social studio, you can magnify the opportunity pipeline and streamline the customer interaction with your brand.
