Posted On: 10 May 2024

Today's Marketing journeys must be tailored to deliver superior customer experiences across all interface points. Therefore, data from different sources must be assimilated to get a comprehensive view of customer contacts, which can be used to deliver relevant content to customers. This also helps marketing teams obtain periodic inputs to tweak customer journeys with cross-channel marketing strategies. Salesforce Marketing Cloud helps businesses with resources that create personalized customer experiences and optimize campaigns across multiple channels.

What is Salesforce Marketing Cloud?

Salesforce Marketing Cloud, part of the Salesforce Suite of products, is a comprehensive cloud-based digital marketing platform designed to help B2B and B2C businesses manage marketing campaigns. It connects customers to a more customized and data-driven experience across digital platforms while assisting businesses in enhancing customer engagement.

With Salesforce Marketing Cloud, marketers can plan, execute, and assess marketing campaigns using its tools and features across various channels, including email, mobile, social media, advertising, and the web. Marketing efforts can be automated, tailored content can be created and delivered, and, most importantly, customer data can be gathered for targeted marketing.

Salesforce Sales Cloud and Marketing Cloud can work in tandem to provide a unified customer view, thus ultimately streamlining the sales and marketing processes. Sales Cloud manages the lead-to-revenue cycle and includes aspects such as leads, opportunities, orders, etc. On the other hand, Marketing Cloud manages all marketing touchpoints across the whole customer lifecycle and hence digs into other datasets beyond Sales Cloud (website analytics, service case data, advertising data, etc.). This integration can help businesses enhance customer account engagement, increase lead conversion, and boost revenues.
