What is Adobe Campaign?
Adobe Campaign is the market-leading Marketing Automation Platform (MAP) that allows marketers to create customer journey workflows (adhoc and automated) and technical workflows, identify and segment audiences, personalize communications and send communications through a number of channels. What sets Adobe Campaign apart from other MAPs is its ability to integrate to any solution while also having the propensity to manage high complexities of data and overall volume. It is a powerful digital tool that allows marketers to send the right message to the right individual or group at the right time. This personalized communication leads to better customer journeys, new customer acquisition and enhanced customer retention.
What is Adobe Analytics?
Adobe Analytics is a market-leading application that provides a comprehensive breakdown of web behavior data regarding how visitors interact and engage with your website. Its ability to both gather and store data will help drive analysis on how you can improve current marketing campaigns along with identifying gaps or key actions your business can undertake that will enhance the customer experience. Such examples can include:
- Identifying which page(s) on your website lead to the most conversions
- Identifying customer segments that are most engaged with your brand
- Analyzing when there is most visitor engagement to drive personalized offers
Current State of Affairs
The goal of purchasing marketing technologies is to automate processes and campaigns to connect better with your customers and grow your business as it scales and evolves. To do this, technology silos must be addressed. Having multiple, disparate solutions will not lead to automation or breakthroughs in industry-leading marketing efforts. Getting to full automation requires integrations and teams speaking to and working with one another to make blue-sky visions become a reality.
Celerity typically sees that there is an individual or team specifically dedicated to each and every marketing technology, and this makes sense. You want solution-specific SMEs as the owners of these powerful tools; however, we also see that these teams seldom work together consistently or are aware of the capabilities beyond the technology they own or manage daily. One of the best ways you can implement new and innovative marketing practices is to set a blue-sky vision and work backwards from there, deconstructing the steps required as you go. Until then, manual processes will require a large amount of staff bandwidth and pigeon-hole the business in terms of what can be accomplished with your target audience(s).
Why Integrate? What is the Value?
Integrating technologies is the best way to remove manual processes and potential human errors while also opening a litany of solutions that will help drive business and lead to more revenue. Understanding the key touchpoints in a customer journey is vital to unlocking ways in which you can interact with your customers and provide better overall experiences. These better experiences will lead to more conversions, increases in new customer acquisition, upselling and cross-selling opportunities, and customer retention, just to name a few.
Integrating Adobe Analytics with Adobe Campaign will allow you to understand web behaviors of those visiting your site to help drive communication that is highly personalized and best-suited for a particular individual or segment based on where they are in their lifecycle.
