Managing Marketing Metrics at Salesforce.com
Adam Greco, Director of Web Analytics, Salesforce.com
Web Analytics is great at helping B2B companies see what happens before a visitor becomes a lead. CRM systems are great at knowing what happens before a lead becomes a customer. But if your sales team could connect the dots between these two systems, they would know exactly what visitors have done on the website prior to becoming lead and in order to help them become a customer. Conversely, your Web Analytics tool often cannot see what happens after the lead is submitted so it cannot optimize marketing campaigns. Adam reveals how Salesforce.com integrates their Web Analytics and CRM systems to move marketing analytics from the server room to the Board Room. At Salesforce.com, data is viewed as a strategic part of business initiatives instead of a reporting afterthought. Learn some ways that you can better position yourself (and your team) to be more relevant and vital to your executives.
