About Salesforce Marketing Cloud

Audience Studio is a data management platform (DMP) designed to help businesses deliver personalized marketing experiences by capturing and storing data signals from multiple sources. Advertisers can utilize machine learning technologies to define audience segments and a device graph to understand their footprints across channels.

Audience Studio includes Salesforce's Einstein application, which allows administrators to gain insights into customer journeys and uncover new audiences based on events or actions. It also offers a consent management module, which lets businesses configure consent frameworks for multiple markets, request data deletion and modify rules to meet regulatory compliance across the organization.

Powerful, but complex

Pros

This software is an online SAAS, and is some of the most powerful Marketing Software on the planet. The software is best used in an environment where personalized, but mass email communication is needed--typically for B2C situations. Pardot is an ideal product for B2B solutions. Although the product can be configured and used by end-users, it is best to work with a partner.

Cons

There are many updates needed in order to make the software work in a more user-friendly fashion, particularly when compared with less powerful solutions, like Constant Contact, MailChimp, etc. A Salesforce partner will cost additional money to implement the solution, but it is a good investment.

SFMC

This is a very serviceable software and will serve it's purpose. It can do a lot, so depending of the size of your organization it might be too much for the cost.

Pros

In addition to being able to import a distribution list, this product integrated with our CRM (Recruit) so we were able to send to segregated lists and it showed what emails were sent in Recruit. This made it easier for our reps to see when correspondence went out to their pipelines. It is rather simple to create and distribute emails.

Cons

Some of the functionality was a bit wonky, and emails viewed differently between various email clients. Line spacing was the biggest thing that varied quite a bit. Everything would look great in SFMC, but when an email was received in Outlook, Mac Mail, or Gmail, all three would display it just a bit differently. Not sure who's problem this is. It also doesn't embed video either. The workaround is to create a screenshot as a graphic, then add a link to it.

Reasons for Switching to Salesforce Marketing Cloud

We wanted integration with our CRM (Recruit).

Custom email marketing

Pros

I like that I can upload my own HTML and create very customized emails for my customers.

Cons

I don't like that the UI of the entire website is very hard to use. If you click on something, you lose your work. And there's no way to preview my emails for multiple devices to troubleshoot.
