Challenge #1 – Gaining Customer Insights

In the digital omnipresence of marketing, sending generalized marketing emails without getting customer insights could be disastrous.

Salesforce Marketing Cloud benefits customers in many ways. It assesses a customer’s behavioral history to predict future actions. A customer’s pact actions help marketers predict their future actions, such as unsubscribe, share with a friend or buy. The Salesforce Marketing Cloud then delivers customized customer journeys based on that insight.

If, for instance, a customer always buys items on sale, then they will always receive news about the latest sale. Marketers can drive customer experiences according to real customer preferences and thus, enjoy a greater customer response rate.

Challenge #3 – Deliver Effective Communication

Bland marketing communication does not work in today’s digital age. Getting a customer to open and read a message is hard enough. Customers are bombarded with thousands of marketing messages every day. It is critical that marketers consider the “health” of the customer when delivering content to ensure that the content strikes a chord and the customer takes the desired action.

Salesforce Marketing Cloud carefully constructs messages based on the specific customer’s satisfaction levels. For instance, a customer who is unhappy with the customer service will be less receptive to email from the brand outlining some renewal offers. Salesforce Marketing Cloud benefits include adapting marketing activities based on the signals it receives. This can include pausing marketing activities to the specific customer until a difficult customer service issue has been resolved. As soon as the problem gets sorted, the Salesforce Marketing Cloud can follow up with the customer to identify their satisfaction levels. Based on the response, a marketer can decide how best to progress the specific customer’s journey.

The Salesforce Marketing Cloud analyses campaign results with precision. The impact of every interaction is evaluated to determine the strengths and flaws in the marketing process. These results are then used to leverage existing methods in real time, as well as strategies going forward.
