Build Better Customer Relationships With Marketing Cloud

Salesforce Marketing Cloud is a highly scalable customer relationship management (CRM) platform. It has a wide array of features that allow you to manage your customer interactions in Salesforce across multiple channels — from email to social, media and mobile.

According to more than 58 per cent of marketing leaders, Salesforce Marketing Cloud has helped them gain a deeper understanding of their customers. In this article, we’ll look at Marketing Cloud’s many features, including Customer Data Platform, Journey Builder, Personalisation Builder, and Advertising, to help you see why Marketing Cloud is ideally positioned to assist you in building stronger customer relationships. Let’s dive in!

The benefit of a single view of each customer

understanding of every interaction that person has had with your brand, providing more personalised content at each stage of the customer journey. This is vital for creating relevant and targeted content that meets your customers’ needs, rather than just delivering generic messages. It also allows you to address any pain points that may have arisen during their customer journey.

CDP gives you a complete view of your customer, including their behavioural data, interactions and preferences. This gives you the ability to create targeted content and journeys based on a person’s behaviour, preferences and interaction history — allowing you to improve customer retention rates and increase customer lifetime value. In addition, CDP provides valuable insights that other departments can use in your organisation, such as customer service, sales and product development. This ensures that everyone is working with the same data and understanding of your customers, which leads to better decisions being made across the board.

CDP can benefit you by creating campaigns that are even more relevant to your customers and increase your chances of conversion. CDP helps you rapidly build audience segments based on subscriber characteristics, engagement and predictive insights. Once you have created your audience, it’s time to start connecting with them.

Help your marketing teams engage better with customers

One of the most valuable features of Salesforce Marketing Cloud is Journey Builder. Journey Builder allows you to map out your customer’s entire journey with your brand, from when they first encounter you through to when they become a loyal customer.

With a drag and drop tool, marketers can build automated journeys to help increase customer interest, serve set behavioural goals and allow customers to feel nurtured with relevant, consistent and timely communications.

Deliver the right content at the right time

With easy personalisation and artificial intelligence algorithms, Salesforce Marketing Cloud puts the power of marketing back in marketers’ hands by allowing you to tailor your messaging and reach customers at the right time. Let’s take a look at some of the features that make this possible:

  • Salesforce Einstein is the first comprehensive AI for CRM. With Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Einstein offers marketers the ability to serve real-time personalisation across web, email, and mobile channels in real-time so that audiences can interact with offers created uniquely for them to increase conversions.

 

  • Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s Personalisation Builder allows you to create dynamic content that will be unique to each customer by using predictive analytics. This content can be delivered using Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s Email builder, open-time, click-time, and behavioural triggers.

    You can also use Personalisation Builder to create custom pages unique to each customer for your website. This will give them a more personalised experience when they visit your website. Additionally, you can use Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s Advertising to create targeted ads that will be displayed on websites and social media platforms.

 

  • Salesforce Marketing Cloud Advertising is a tool that allows you to create and manage your social media and online ad campaigns. It makes it easy to target specific customers based on their interests and behaviour and integrates with Salesforce CRM and Programmatic Ad platforms, making it easy to track your ad campaigns.

Get a 360-degree view of your customers

All the tools within Salesforce Marketing Cloud work in perfect tandem together to give you a 360-degree view of your customers. To take full advantage of this, use Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s Relationship Map to see how all the different tools are connected and toggle between them easily. This integrated view of your customers will better understand their behaviour and allow you to create more relevant and effective marketing campaigns. In addition to this, the Salesforce Marketing Cloud Customer Insights tool will help you gather valuable information about your customers – so you can continually improve your marketing strategy.
