Google Analytics 360 & Salesforce Marketing Cloud Integration
Finally, Analytics from website & data generated from campaigns in Salesforce via Emails, Text & Social channels collaborated seamlessly and bridging the gap of Marketing & Sales through GA 360 suite integration with Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
Helping you invest in the right campaign
As a member of CXO team in any enterprise, it is always a pressure situation for the CXO’s to justify their investment on a particular campaign. Most enterprises use Google Analytics 360 suite (GA 360) to track marketing campaigns and Salesforce to track their Sales operations. As a CXO you know how much each campaign is costing you but you have no idea of which campaign or advertisement is generating the maximum revenue. At times you continue investing in channels which don’t give a great % return.
With GA connector within your IT landscape provides you the capability to:
- Know which campaign is profitable
- Know which is draining your time & money
- Increase profit without increasing spend
With my recent B2B implementation, we identified multiple channels through which a client is made aware about the products & services – these are Social Media, Emails, Paid & Organic searches, Telemarketing, display advertising and not limited to physical direct mails.
Measure your campaigns ROI
A typical B2B conversion cycle is somewhere around 3-9 months, the customer uses various marketing touch points through the journey before it gets converted. To analyze how each of the channels impact conversions, most of the enterprises use the last interaction attribution model which means giving the full credit to the last touch point before the conversion. That means the contribution of all the other touch points is neglected & the money spent on those touch points are considered wasted. The reason why enterprises consider last click or first click attribution model is because they think it’s difficult to bring all of the data in one place. There are many other attribution models which we will cover in detail in our subsequent articles.
Getting the most from the Integration
Providing marketeers an enhance customer experience by personalizing their experiences on their Website, advertisements & their email channels.
Until now marketeers find it difficult to understand & decide what should be the next best interaction with their customers. With Marketing Cloud, we can create journeys through which emails are sent out to a specific audience based on attribution created in GA 360 using leads & opportunity data received from Sales Cloud. When a user reads the email & actions on the email they land on a website page.
Emails also carry journey campaign information as parameters which are then passed on to Google Analytics to analyze & determine the traffic source & which channel is generating most of the revenue.
With Salesforce Marketing Cloud integrated with GA 360 suite, marketers will have a new set of metrics which will help them to take appropriate decisions for investing into right campaigns & channels.
