How to Use Salesforce to Automate the Sales & Marketing Process
Marketing Cloud, Salesforce

How to Use Salesforce to Automate the Sales & Marketing Process?

“The Biggest Challenge a Business Faces Today is to Streamline their Sales and Marketing Process. They Fail to Strengthen Relationships with their Customer at Every Stage due to their Sales & Marketing Gaps. That’s where Salesforce comes as a Savior, Allowing Customers to put in the Center of Everything. One Platform for One Connected Experience Taking Customers One to One Journeys they Choose.”

At the Heart of Everything is the Customer Journey

Even today, Companies still experience a Gap in their Sales & Marketing Process. 

They struggle to create a seamless experience for every stage of their customer life cycle and unable to balance their marketing budget campaigns.

Why?

Because they don’t have a unified platform to put their Sales & Marketing Team to have a 360 view of their Customer Data.

Your business needs to engage your customers at the right moment with the right channel, content, device, department, and representative. 

And if you don’t, you lose a customer right away!

Salesforce: Putting Sales & Marketing Teams Together in a Single Integrated Platform

There was this Entrepreneur who had a terrible business experience.

Charles runs a business and has a powerful A Players Team. He thought he had everything to run his business efficiently in order to enhance the sales productivity.

However, he was unable to generate leads with the uncontrolled rise in his sales & marketing expenditure along with lack of process visibility.

He struggled to get the right ROI for his marketing campaigns.

He then decided to switch to Salesforce.

To his surprise, he saw Salesforce Completely Streamlined his critical Sales & Marketing Processes.

Now with the right marketing campaign, he was able to target the right audience using the right channel with the right message at the right time.

He could easily personalize his marketing campaigns making his marketing team smarter and more predictive about their customer by using this intelligent platform. 

When his marketing went in the right direction, he generated more leads, and with the right leads, it was passed to the right sales representative.

Hence the sales expenditure & sales cycle were reduced.

Streamlines Both Sales & Marketing Process

With Salesforce, your marketing team will see the entire Sales Process. It will help you better understand which leads are likely to buy, which marketing content was most helpful, and what it takes to close the deal. These insights will help your marketers measure their impact on revenue and to understand how they should spend on a limited budget in the future.

Sales Teams will understand their entire customer journey and everything marketing did to nurture them along the way. Even before the first conversation, your sales reps will see all the information about your prospects like who they are, how to contact them, information details about their business, and the level of interest in your product or service. 

Representatives will know which marketing emails they have received and which ones were actually opened, what links were clicked and what content they engaged with. Your representatives can now have relevant, effective conversations from the first call, and your service teams can have a complete view of the customer life cycle about their purchases and activities. 

Engaging Customer in a Way That Suits Them

Salesforce for Marketing & Sales allows the Customers to put in the center of everything. It has a ton of marketing data to view it all in one place. You can easily find the new target audiences and have a unified view of the customer data. The best part is that you can engage them at the moment.

This is done using the data and AI to reach them with the right content on the right channel at the perfect time. When they land on your site, it’s already personalized based on what they came from. This can be from any channel, device, or department.

Takeaway

Yes, there’s a lot Salesforce can do to help every team operate their full potential. As a 10-year-old Salesforce partner company, we are an expert in delivering and streamlining the sales & marketing process with the power of Salesforce. To know more about how you can work and get maximum ROI from your sales and marketing activities or sales expenditure with Salesforce, get in touch with us.

Salesforce Took its Partnership with Microsoft to the Next Level

In a recent announcement, Salesforce has taken its partnership with Microsoft a step forward. As per the development, Salesforce is moving its Marketing Cloud to Microsoft Azure. Salesforce is also building new integrations between its Sales Cloud & Service Cloud with Microsoft Teams in order to make things easy for customers using both.

Salesforce first collaborated with Microsoft in 2014 & both the tech giants expanded their collaboration in 2015. Salesforce developed integrations with Microsoft products including Skype for Business, OneNote & Windows 10. 

Salesforce already has a stable partnership with Amazon Web Services & Google Cloud. This means Salesforce is now using all the major Cloud platforms to host some of its products. This partnership is a big boost to Microsoft as they are trying to give a tough competition to AWS who is currently the market leader. Microsoft already has a CRM tool Dynamics 365 which is a Salesforce’s Sales Cloud competitor, but the deal points that Microsoft is clearly putting all it’s money on Azure as this is going to be a huge growth driver for them in the future. 

The new integrations between Sales Cloud & Service Cloud with Microsoft Teams will enable mutual customers to search, view & share Salesforce records directly within Teams. 

Interesting to know that a few days back Salesforce announced a partnership with Microsoft’s biggest competitor AWS around the Cloud Information Model. While Slack, which is the biggest competitor of Microsoft Team recently announced a strategic deal with Salesforce to integrate its services. This proves that in today’s customer-centric business world, it is important for every service provider to collaborate with others in order to offer a seamless customer experience.
