Why Integrate? The Winning Formula

Just think about being able to schedule the social post, follow the brand mention, or support leads – all within the frames of the familiar and user-friendly solution – the Marketing Cloud. Salesforce Marketing Cloud offers two main methods for integrating social media channels.

There are two basic ways of connecting social media channels in Salesforce Marketing Cloud:

Native Integration: Social Studio is the tool within the environment of the Marketing Cloud managing social media and tracking the activity. Posts, Conversations, and basic features such as setup and analytics can be done within the Marketing Cloud.

AppExchange Integrations: The Salesforce AppExchange is a platform that is filled with third-party apps that may be used to complement Marketing Cloud. It is possible to get social media management software with all the necessary tools, and features like social media listening and monitoring, influencer marketing, and even analyzing the overall social media presence and strengths and weaknesses.

Choosing the Right Approach:

How one chooses to integrate depends on the type of organizations and relations involved, as well as the amount of money available. Here’s a quick guide:

For beginners: First, use the social studio ad format, this is one of the native ad options available. And, finally, it is a more accessible way of managing some of the tasks related to social media accounts.

For advanced users: We can search for other available options in the AppExchange that contain much better social media features. When making a choice, one has to take into account the following aspects: price range, basic or secondary functions, and design.

Advanced Features with AppExchange Integrations:

Social Listening: Export all findings into custom social listening tools for purposes such as brand awareness, trends in an industry, or customer attitudes.

Influencer Marketing: Identify and approach opinion makers and other groups that would assist in the dissemination of the brand message and thus, influence the market/product appeal.

Social Advertising Integration: Social Advertising can also let you control, track, and analyze your advertising campaigns within the Marketing Cloud environment.

Advanced Analytics: Don’t just look at the basics – try to maximize the possibilities of the social media analyzing applications in the AppExchange, thus getting the overall picture of your social media efficiency.
