October 10, 2019 | Manju Devadas
Cloud technology is transforming the way enterprises do business. Marketing is no exception. Digital marketing is the new norm and marketers are constantly under pressure to cut through the noise, influence sales, and increase the bottom line.
What is the biggest challenge that Marketers face today? Data Silos.
Data about your customers like who they are, what they do, what they purchase, and how they think, is crucial information. Capturing that data is the easy part. Making sure that data works together to fully paint the customer profile is difficult, and predicting what that customer will do next and taking actions ahead of time to capture that value seems impossible. But companies are doing it!
It is common for data to be separated into silos within different applications and software. CRM systems, ad campaigns, billing info, email management, social media, customer service, and content marketing are all separate and the data that is captured is separate. Putting these reports together and analyzing them together is usually a manual task full of human bias and error.
Imagine all of your marketing data centralized in the cloud being analyzed together. What if you could understand the full customer journey, predict marketing outcomes, and personalize your customer’s experience simultaneously with the data you already have.
Customers have different needs at the various levels of the marketing funnel. This requires unique messaging, and specific marketing activities for each level and each customer. This is what you can achieve with Google Cloud for Marketing:
Cloud For Marketing (C4M) is a platform that allows you to optimize the entire marketing funnel leveraging the power of machine learning.
