Track Insights and Key Data Points
One of the most common problems we see organizations struggle with is having scattered customer data and no insights to improve results. Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing helps addresses this problem with its capability to analyze and document your ROI. By using dashboards and performance analytics to your team can view campaign reports and use that information inform future activities. Having tangible results will also help you demonstrate a return on investment when reporting up the chain of command.
Performance data is key to identifying your best lead sources, so that sales and marketing can understand campaign reach and impact. With a more holistic perspective on your data, the marketing team can then pinpoint their contributions, influence, and opportunities for improvement.
Enable LinkedIn and Social Integration
Another problem we see when new clients engage Avtex is that their tools and systems are disconnected. One way we combat this is by leveraging the integration features of the Microsoft technologies. For example, Dynamics 365 Marketing allows you to tap into LinkedIn's business prospects and import leads directly, so you can quickly target and connect with the right audience. You can start by spending time inside LinkedIn's lead tool to track down business prospects and then integrate them into your prospecting campaign.
These social integrations help combine the locations you need to focus on when generating leads and helps fill the gaps so that no information is lost throughout the process.
Integrate with Microsoft Technologies
Dynamics 365 Marketing not only integrates with your different social platforms, but also with other technologies to increase your overall functionality. The unification of records into one customer profile provides a holistic, 360-degree view of your customer. Technology integration further ensures that your systems are talking to each other and that every interaction is accounted for. This is a crucial piece to achieve that unified customer profile and to maintain consistency as customer profiles move through the marketing funnel.
Additionally, you can leverage the benefits of the entire Microsoft Suite and tap into the expertise of our consultants at Avtex to set up surveys through Microsoft Forms Pro and approvals with Power Automate.
