Short and sweet

Honest customer communication is the core of a functioning company. In the current times of COVID-19 and the Ukraine war, companies are facing unscheduled difficulties. But it has the importance of good customer relations for the success of your business changed? Quite the opposite! Salesforce specializes in this fundamental factor and is the world's leading CRM provider and expert in digitizing customer relationships. In this article, you will learn how you can digitize and secure communication with your customers thanks to the Marketing Cloud and Pardot.

Welcome to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud!

Here you get exactly what you want for your company: seamless customer communication. From B2B or B2C marketing, to personalized customer journeys across all channels, tracking of all activities via social networks to individual and target group-specific campaigns. The Salesforce Marketing Cloud gives you all these benefits - digitally and transparently on one platform.

Personalized Customer Journey

The personalized Customer Journey is one of the most effective features that the Marketing Cloud provides you with. Make the right use of your customer information with Customer Journeys:  

  • Send personalized messages to your customers based on previous purchase history behavior 

  • Send automated information and messages to customers based on real-time events. 

  • Communicate seamlessly - across all channels 

  • Link marketing, sales, service and commerce and offer your customers a consistent customer journey. 

  • Always respond proactively to behavioral changes of your customers 

  • Use analytics to increase the efficiency of your marketing activities 

For many companies, a large part of their daily communication is B2B marketing. With the Salesforce Marketing Cloud you can rely on automated marketing activities, more leads and an overview of all your key figures:  

  • Automate the sending of emails and other marketing activities using triggers 

  • Send personalized content to your customers 

  • Create engaging landing pages and increase customer interactions 

  • Manage your webinars and events and capture the interest of your customers 

  • Have an eye on your marketing ROI and measure the impact of your marketing actions on revenue 

  • Track the opportunities in your pipeline 

The needs and wishes of your customers are different. That's why an "one size fits all" mindset is unlikely to benefit you. Personalize your email campaigns with the Marketing Cloud and use specific targeting, persuasive emails and personalized email journeys to your advantage: 

  • Segment your customer groups and send target group-specific content 

  • Automate routine tasks and increase your efficiency 

  • Reach your customers on any device thanks to Responsive Design 

  • Use customizable templates to populate your emails 

  • Optimize your email journeys 

Maintain a personal relationship with all customers.
