Explore Intelligent Marketing

Learning Objectives

After completing this unit, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify how Marketing Cloud helps businesses achieve their goals.
  • Describe the three elements of intelligent marketing.
  • Recommend Marketing Cloud products to customers.

Marketing Cloud: Our Solution for Intelligent Marketing

To meet customer expectations, businesses need a complete Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. Salesforce is a complete CRM solution that helps businesses sell, service, and market. Marketing Cloud is one of the Salesforce solutions that provides businesses with intelligent marketing, which is marketing that businesses use to:

  • Know their customer: Understand customers’ preferences by connecting data stored in different systems.
  • Personalize their communications: Make the right offer at the right time by tailoring communications based on a customer’s preferences.
  • Talk with their customers across the journey: Send messages before, during, and after the sale or service experience.

A person orders shoes from a promotion email, gets the shoes, and joins a running club.

These three capabilities combined provide intelligent marketing—the type of marketing that’s essential for businesses to meet customer expectations.
