All you need to know about Sitefinity Digital Experience Cloud

Your entire marketing campaign depends on who your customers are – you have probably heard this from your own digital manager. Or if you are a digital marketer yourself, you already know it. This indicates the importance of customer profiling in growing your business.

But data is complex; and it is everywhere. Serious digital marketers know that their Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are now directly linked to bottom-lines. This is where Sitefinity Digital Experience Cloud (DEC) steps in to give digital marketers an integrated marketing command center that not just gives shape and order to optimizations, but also drives business growth.

So what makes Sitefinity DEC a must-have to fire up your customer profiling and journey optimization?

  1. Customer Journey Database – Keeping an ear out

  • Recording customer interactions and their journeys is no longer about optimizing the pipeline. Sitefinity DEC shatters the traditional model of compartmentalizing all customers into “marketing funnels” to focus on measuring the quality and quantity of each customer interaction along the customer journey instead. It understands that each customer journey is different and hence, works toward providing improved customer experience.
  • A customer makes multiple anonymous interactions with a business on the world wide web. Technically, the customer journey begins even before the customer has officially said “hello”. It then becomes cardinal that positive experiences are built around the customer which is quite an uphill task for digital marketers, considering how vast the Internet is. However, with Sitefinity DEC, tracking online customer behavior patterns becomes easy, even when the customer is anonymous as is typical of early interactions.
  • Customer interactions come from multiple directions – web, mobile, social, customer service or sales reps. All these interactions get recorded into various channels such as marketing systems or CRMs, and tend to go into silos. However, with Sitefintiy DEC, all the collected data sitting in different systems is pulled in for integration by a powerful framework and a dynamic set of connectors.
  • Depending on what kind of info you need on your customers – broader view or granular details – Sitefinity DEC delivers a 360-degree unified customer profile, anonymous or not. It provides details on the identity of the customer, what their behavior is like, and gives insights on the choices made by them.
