Why do you need Cloud for Marketing

Cloud for Marketing delivers the essential building blocks for marketing success. It enables you to tackle the common marketing challenges in the most efficient and robust way. 

1. Measure user interaction across different owned and paid channels, apps and platforms

Consumers and prospects interact with your business through different touch points such as website, mobile app, email and advertising channels and platforms. Measuring across all of these touchpoints at the same time to get a holistic analytical view is essential to know whether your efforts are going to be successful or not.

2. Measure interactions across the ecosystem of advertising platforms

Measuring the advertising interactions over the walled gardens such as Facebook, Google, Amazon will help you to better understand the whole customer journey. Optimise campaigns for effectiveness by knowing what actions your prospects take before making a purchase.

3. Activate insights from data back into the platform in a timely manner

Enhance the ROI of your data infrastructure and benefit from your customer insights by turning them into (preferably automated) actions. Trigger these actions in a timely manner when it's relevant to the customer.

Benefit from providing better customer experiences by using the power of both Google Cloud Platform and Google Marketing Platform. 

How does it work

4. Activate one campaign across all marketing channels

Customers demand seamless interactions with your brand across all channels and devices they are using. Collecting customer data and merging them into one central analytical view gives you the opportunity to decide what you should communicate, also per channel. So this also allows you to activate one campaign across all marketing channels and, as a result, to create experiences and interactions that are consistent, easy, and relevant.

5. Personalisation throughout the marketing funnel from awareness phase to the advocacy phase

Marketing funnel demonstrates how to target prospects at different stages with different tactics. As prospects enter or exit at any stage of the marketing funnel, one-message-fits-all is no longer applicable. Meet the customer expectations when they reach out to you by matching purpose with their intent. Choose the right strategy depending on the stage they are in: discovery, engagement, conversion, retention, etc. Provide unique, personalised experiences for each buyer to attract new customers and create loyal brand advocates.

6. Optimise Net Present Value: find the balance between ROI, ROAS, CAC and CLTV

Enhance your marketing cloud to manage the entire customer lifecycle. Bring together data from all touchpoints to understand the customer journey, predict marketing outcomes, and personalise across all touchpoints. Prioritise targeting and flow based on Net Present Value instead of on short term conversion. Reduce Customer Acquisition Costs by targeting a new customer only when it is profitable against Customer Lifetime Value. Grow reach at the same acquisition costs by smart spending and ROI optimisation.

10. Use less separate tools for your marketing activities

The diversity of today's marketing technology combined with the broad set of tasks that marketers need to tackle caused that many marketing teams have reached the point of tech-overload. It has become very time consuming to apply analyses and models to get all the customer information from the data. Once organisations start seeing insight from their data powered by cloud technology, they want to make it faster, easier and smarter. They want to activate the data, apply machine learning and build prediction models to create delightful customer experiences.
