Salesforce.com Acquisition of ExactTarget: Excerpts from the Industry

 

http://sco.lt/91u0Hp

Today, 8:49 AM

 

Excerpts from industry analysts and journalists...

 

SalesForce/ExactTarget Deal Means More Complexity For MarketersForrester

  • Raises the specter of further market consolidation by large players. By making a bold move into not just automation, but digital media, Salesforce will raise pressure on Adobe, IBM, Microsoft, SAP, and other traditional enterprise application providers to make similar moves, raising the valuations of Responsys, Neolane, and Silverpop. Salesforce can now monetize both seat licenses and media CPMs, and clearly wants to create a billion dollar business line in the marketing cloud.
  • As a large, established vendor, Salesforce will make it easier for marketing departments to convince their IT and procurement peers of adopting ET. If Salesforce chooses to suppress digital media CPM rates, existing ET customers benefit, but Salesforce would make it difficult for (now much) smaller vendors, like Responsys and Silverpop, to compete.

 

Salesforce.com Acquires ExactTarget - Gartner

  • Why ExactTarget?  With a marquis customer list, and the ability to support robust email marketing programs, they offer Salesforce.com and their customers the capabilities needed to build out the marketing cloud. In fact, when existing Salesforce.com customers were seeking support for complex email requirements, the folks in San Francisco would point customers east to the folks in Indianapolis…often enough that integration via the Salesforce.com APIs already exists.

 

Salesforce Acquires ExactTarget, Continues Marketing Automation Industry Consolidation - Customer Experience Matrix

  • I doubt Salesforce will suddenly stop integrating with other marketing automation vendors.  Small, independent marketing automation firms already had a tough time selling against big competitors, so this only makes their lives marginally harder.  The smart ones (and that's most of them) already have a strategy in place to differentiate themselves from the big industry leaders.
  • I've long argued that CRM and marketing automation should be part of the same system.  Like a broken clock, the time has come when I'm right.  Marketing automation sits between email and CRM, in the sense that it uses both heavily.  So Salesforce has effectively surrounded the marketing automation vendors with its purchase, even ignoring Pardot.  This means that Salesforce will be in the room with a solution when email and CRM users discuss expanding into marketing automation.  In many cases, clients will extend their Salesforce deployment without considering anyone else..

 

With ExactTarget Acquisition, Salesforce.com Has Spent Close To $3.5 Billion To Get Into The Chief Marketing Officer’s Suite - TechCrunch

  • If Salesforce.com does wish to push deep into lead management, it will need to either invest heavily in its own development or acquire a company, which will bring another hefty price tag. Last month, Marketo, a marketing automation leader, had a successful initial public offering. It opened at $13 per share. Today it is trading in the $22 range with a market capitalization of about $812 million. Eloqua, the other leader in the category, sold to Oracle late last year for $871 million. [TechCrunch blew it with this analysis, not realizing that Pardot came with ET!]

 

Salesforce to acquire Exact Target: I now pronounce you 'Marketing Cloud' - ZDNet

  • This move is precisely (I would have said "exactly" but that sounded redundant) what salesforce needed to do. They now have an excellent email marketing suite, a strong upper-end-of-the-small-and-through-the-middle-of-the-mid-market marketing automation suite (via the Exact Target acquisition of Pardot last year) and, as an added bonus, the social comms tool Co-Tweet, which was one of the underutilized gems owned by Exact Target. They are also acquiring a substantial customer base that is reasonably ripe for salesforce's other offerings.

 

Salesforce.com's ExactTarget Buy Equals Marketing Clout - InformationWeek

  • By combining ExactTarget's digital marketing capabilities with Salesforce.com's sales, service and social marketing capabilities, Salesforce said it will create "a world-class marketing platform across email, social, mobile and the Web." Salesforce marketing capabilities were previously limited to social channels, powered by capabilities gained through the acquisitions of Radian6 and Buddy Media. In contrast, rivals including IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAS and Teradata, among others, have much broader, multi-channel marketing capabilities, most on the strength of acquisitions over the last three years.

 

Our Take

  • For the CMO with SFDC and MA: You can maintain your MA without concern, regardless of vendor. You may, however, want to seriously consider the soon to be native ET/Pardot advantages, as that will reduce your operating costs to maintain separate systems.
  • For the CMO with SFDC but without MA: Your IT challenges will be resolved. CIO concerns will be overcome as SFDC acts as a Trojan Horse for your MA.
  • For the SMB marketplace: Your life just got a bit easier. Salesforce meets the needs of all sizes of businesses, and this bundled solution will improve your time-to-marketing efforts.
  • For Oracle/Eloqua: This is going to be difficult. Oracle wants to improve its CRM business, and the Eloqua acquisition to round out its offering makes sense. However, Salesforce want to improve its marketing capabilities, not necessarily its CRM business, so that it can fully assist the Marketing function. Big difference. Salesforce just cut Oracle off at the pass.

Using Psychology to Increase Conversions [FREE White Paper] - Pardot


http://sco.lt/7UpkxN

From www.pardot.com - Today, 12:22 PM

 

Excerpt...

 

Our newest white paper, “Using Psychology to Increase Conversions,” was written to educate marketers on these psychological principles and give them a powerful new dynamic in their marketing strategy. By leveraging the power of human instinct, you can be more effective at grabbing consumers’ attention, holding their interest, and facilitating action.

 

Let’s take a look at what’s covered:

  • Social Proof: When making decisions, we often look at the behavior of others as an example.
  • Loss Aversion: The desire to avoid loss is a strong motivator for many.
  • Anchoring: In decision making, we often judge our options by the first piece of information we have.
  • Foot-in-the-Door: Agreeing to a small task will make it harder to say no to a large task later.
  • Authority: We are more persuaded by people and companies that we perceive to have authority.

 

With the psychological principles, you will be able to tweak your conversion points to be more persuasive and convert a higher number of leads. Keep in mind that these principles are meant to guide the design and approach of your conversion points, not to manipulate your customers. Use the tips and suggestions in this white paper responsibly and honestly.

 

iNeoMarketing's insight:

We admire the insight using psychology principles to improve marketing tactics, and this paper adds to the wealth of knowledge in this area. To see more content, search our filter for psychology or the tag conversions.

The LinkedIn Guide to Personalized Content Creation - CMI


http://sco.lt/5sTjKT

From contentmarketinginstitute.com - Today, 10:19 AM

 

Condensed...

 

How do you start your personalization plan on the right foot?

1. Find out who they are: Extensive research helps reveal what makes your audience members tick. Your buyer personas make that data actionable.

2. Listen to what they have to say: Listening to discussions on social media is today’s most powerful research tool for content creation. On LinkedIn, active “groups” are gold mines of information about each of your segments.

3. Create segment-specific content: Use your buyer personas to create a content plan for each segment. This part of the process takes a look at what each audience segment is talking about — and what they aren’t talking about but might find interesting.

4. Form a distribution plan: With your segments in hand, reevaluate your distribution channels. Are you approaching them with your audience segments in mind?

 

Below are three ways LinkedIn works with brands to promote content marketing:

1. Leveraging brand pages and native ads

2. Taking part in the conversation: Not everyone considers the conversations they have in LinkedIn groups to be “content marketing.” But that’s exactly what it is — providing helpful content directly to an audience member without imposing a sales message.

3. Creating personalized social experiences: LinkedIn APIs have uncovered a world of uses for creating personalized social experiences. Just ask PwC Netherlands: The global consulting firm worked with LinkedIn to create a successful professional relationship game based on a user’s LinkedIn network. CMI says: LinkedIn imposes few limitations on content marketers. Extending personalization beyond the walls of the professional network is a realistic goal that you can make happen with LinkedIn APIs.

 

iNeoMarketing's insight:

We got excited when we saw the article title, but very little of the post concerned itself with personalization. And when personalization was mentioned, it came with APIs (pain). So if you have a nice dev team as a part of your marketing department, great. If not, then either start a business around custom program for LinkedIn APIs or just stick with the basics.

Quick Guide to Making your Website Social Media Friendly | Velocity Digital Blog


http://sco.lt/8WTkmH

From www.velocitydigital.co.uk - Today, 10:01 AM

 

This posts gives advice on ensuring your website is cleverly integrated with social media technology and platforms. Handy for all marketers!

 

Excerpt...

 

I’m often asked by clients to work with their web designers/developers to ensure their new website is going to be built and presented in a way that ensures social media tech plays a part in the user’s experience. Usually I’m asked to do this after jumping up and down a lot and ramming home the importance of thinking social when it comes to websites! It’s very important that social is taken into consideration at a very early stage of any web build or revamp. Read on for some tips on making your site more social media friendly.

  • Create a social media widget
  • Create a content hub
  • Sharing is caring: There are a lot of off-the-shelf options out there, but I would recommend ‘hard-coding’ share buttons, this tends to allow you to mould them to fit better with your site design. Tech blog, The Next Web does this very well.

iNeoMarketing's insight:

We primarily scooped this for the The Next Web example. Good info nevertheless.

Twitter Prepping Ad-Retargeting Exchange to Rival Facebook's - AdAge


http://sco.lt/87V3Kb

From adage.com - Today, 10:13 AM

 

following the success of facebook's retargeting exchange, twitter plans to build its own version of fbx to let brands retarget visitors with ads on twitter.

 

Excerpt...

 

The micro-blogging platform is planning to erect an exchange similar to FBX that would let brands retarget people who visit their sites with ads on Twitter, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Twitter did not respond to requests for comment.

 

It's unclear how far along Twitter is in building the exchange, though Facebook managed to create FBX from scratch in a month. In keeping with the company's measured approach to advertising, Twitter is performing its due diligence. Since at least late last year, the company has met with several FBX partners who are well-versed in locating on Facebook people who had previously visited a brand’s site and retargeting them with non-standard display ads on the social network, in hopes of luring them back to the brand site. It works by by pinging a partner when a cookied user visits Facebook so that the partner can bid to target ads to that user on the social network. The talks are early but ongoing, and Twitter has not briefed potential partners on a planned launch date.

 

iNeoMarketing's insight:

You'll want to keep an eye on this as well as Twitter's Lead Generation Cards.

Penguin 2.0: How to become an online authority - Econsultancy


http://sco.lt/84wfA1

From econsultancy.com - Today, 10:06 AM

 

The SEO world is abuzz following the release of Penguin 2.0, though there have been several updates to the algorithm since it launched in April 2012.

 

Digest...

 

Invest in quality content

Everything you create – both on and offsite - should have quality at its core. Invest in blogs, news, features, white papers, infographics, videos; but only if they are relevant and likely to have a real benefit to your customer base. 

 

Invest in onsite content

Google rewards websites that publish content on their own websites. It is a key metric, and growing in importance, brands and businesses that fail to invest in developing onsite content strategies are not going to succeed online. 

 

Use Google+ Authorship markup to gain even more authority in Google

Why use Google+?

  • It immediately indexes your new content in Google.
  • Create authority and respect in Google’s eyes – Google loves Google products.
  • Generate more inbound links.
  • Generate more social likes and shares.
  • Build up your authorship and expertise in an emerging area for SEO.
  • Add additional SEO power to your guest posts and blogger outreach.
  • Cultivate business leads and be seen as a thought leader.

 

Amplify your content to create authority

It’s not about masses of poor quality inbound links – it’s about relevant, high value content and inbound links from relevant and quality sites and authors  that share a story, is useful to your customer base and shareable. Social shares are very important for search success, but also in building your authority in Google’s eyes.

 

Increase traffic to your website 

 

iNeoMarketing's insight:

Excellent advice, and we place this post amongst the top pieces on how to manage the impact from Penguin 2.0.

As you could have predicted, prediction is big these days. Big enough, in fact, that leading B2B practitioner Radius today announced new investment funding of $50 million.

That brings the total raised to date by the San Francisco-based company to $125 million, which CEO and cofounder Darian Shirazi told me via email was “almost as much as the [other] predictive providers combined.”

Those others include such competitors as Lattice Engines and Infer. Shirazi noted that they “built [predictive] models to help sales prioritize leads, then help marketing operations accelerate existing leads, and now they’re partnering with data providers to deliver net-new [customers] in existing markets.”

IntellaSphere's budget marketing cloud - The Hub

IntellaSphere's budget marketing cloud - The Hub | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
Washington-based start-up IntellaSphere this week announced the launch of a low-priced, cloud-based marketing guidance center, and suite of associated tools, aimed primarily at the SMB segment.

IntellaSphere is very much a marketing tool. It does provide a platform for publishing and sharing content across the main social channels, and also serves to monitor relevant brand conversations across the network. Distinctively, it throws some key marketing functions into the mix. The Connections Relationship Management system integrates social activity with CRM, profiling online connections as prospects and tracking their behavior. In effect, it automatically builds a prospect database.

IntellaSphere starts at $9.95 per month for one user and five profiles. I noted that the highest priced package (for agencies) was priced at $299 per month, but only served 25 users--somewhat short of what even some medium-sized businesses might need. Worrall told me that the packages can be customized to add users and connections.

4 Marketing Analytics That Matter for Driving Higher Revenue - Marketo

4 Marketing Analytics That Matter for Driving Higher Revenue - Marketo | The Marketing Technology Alert | Scoop.it
Instead of seeing marketing activities in isolation, marketers need an end-to-end view of buyer engagement. It’s not about the first “touch” that brings a prospect into the sales funnel, or the last “touch” before signing a deal. It’s about tracking all the touch points at which a prospect connects with your marketing programs, and measuring those multi-touch impacts.

So how do you do it? Here are four marketing analytics for demonstrating marketing’s ability to drive revenue:

Flow: Where are prospects connecting with your marketing programs?
Balance: How many prospects are in each stage of the sales funnel?
Conversion: What’s the ratio of movement from stage to stage?
Velocity: What’s the rate of movement from stage to stage?
