Salesforce Marketing Cloud, formerly ExactTarget, offers hundreds of features to help brands execute everything from basic email marketing to sophisticated cross-channel campaign management. Salesforce is recognised as one of the world’s most powerful one-to-one digital marketing platforms.

Salesforce provides four main solutions within the Marketing Cloud, and each contains different editions, offering options to brands with basic needs as well as those with highly complex needs. Accordingly, Salesforce Marketing Cloud pricing is structured according to specific product needs and also the scale of the marketing effort. Salesforce Marketing Cloud pricing is normally broken down into Basic, Pro, Corporate and Enterprise tiers.

We’ve broken down each edition with its pricing levels below so that you can get a better idea

of Salesforce Marketing Cloud costs. The most sophisticated editions come at a higher price point, but you might not need all the features with them. Working with a certified Salesforce Marketing Cloud partner like Celerity will help you identify which package is best suited to your needs.

Celerity specialise in using the Salesforce Marketing Cloud for email, mobile, social and marketing automation, however, there is an edition that specifically contains advertising capabilities.
