If you have a rather large budget and/or several clients to take advantage of the AMC, you would likely benefit from its all-in-one solutions. There are a myriad of excellent tools for digital marketing professionals to take advantage of within the suite, and creating a campaign becomes much more manageable for collaboration and execution through to reporting thanks to the suite's vertically integrated nature.

It is well suited for marketing teams who want to be flexible, adaptable to changes in their business and create powerful, sophisticated campaigns to their clients. Teams that want to create automated drip campaigns with dynamic content and personalized cadence and messaging would find Eloqua very easy to use and perfect for their needs. It has powerful, in-depth reporting functionality and great CRM integration (note that I've had experience integrating only with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Salesforce - both of these integrations worked very well) - so teams that use CRM will also find it complementary to their marketing technology stack.It will not be a good tool if a company doesn't use any CRM - as it is not a CRM replacement; or if all the marketing team is planning to do is "batch and blast" emails (which is a possible scenario for some very small businesses)

Pros

Adobe Marketing Cloud

  • Content Analysis - Between the Pages report and the participation metrics which show what percentage of conversions a page was involved with, you get an excellent analysis of what content is important and effective, and what is not. With the ability to add up to ten metrics side by side, drill downs, and power tools like Ad Hoc Analysis, you will know exactly where you need better content.
  • Pathing - Adobe Analytics captures every single path of every single visit of every single visitor and puts it at your fingertips. There are tools to aggregate common paths so you find out how frequent they are, lots of good page flow reports, and tools to pick out specific paths that will keep you from being overwhelmed. This has been absolutely invaluable to us as we have learned about how our customers are using our sites and which paths are leading to exits rather than converions.
  • Customization - There are so many custom metrics and dimensions you can add and you can create segments based on all of them, along with the out of the box metrics and dimensions. You truly get an implementation that is specific to your company, your needs, your strategy, and your site.

  • WYSZIWYG editor makes things easy for folks new to marketing as well as HTML/. I feel like I've been able to wrap my hands around this tool pretty quickly, and I have only been using the system for 10 months.
  • Forms are an incredibly powerful tool that can be used in a myriad of ways to help support your team goals. We use them to trigger SMS campaigns for feedback from our homeowners, and we also use them on landing pages to survey our contacts as well.
  • The improved program canvas and the ability to communicate between CDO records and contact records is great. We're able to store useful information on the CDO record without weighing down the contact record with information that isn't vital

Cons

Adobe Marketing Cloud

  • Customer services could be improved for smaller clients. Adobe Marketing Cloud provides great support for most of its customers, however, it may not work well enough for smaller engagements.
  • Adobe could offer multiple price options based on the usage, which is missing at the moment.

  • It would be nice if there were more options for specific customizations in the template mode - for example, if you would like to have a photo to the left of text, there is a very specific spacing you're able to use, and you can't change the sizes of each piece more than 30 points in one direction or another. This means that if you have very specific designs you want to use for your emails, you may have to be a little flexible in the spacing and alignment. It's not a huge deal, but it limits some of the design options.
  • I have dealt with some issues with bounceback statuses for emails - if an email bounces back once, the Eloqua system registers it as a bad email and you have to go in and clear the person's email in the system before it will send them an email again. This can be a tedious process - there is a way to clear an entire segment's bounce back status, but I had to go on a journey through the help section to figure that out. Also, if people unsubscribe to your emails, you have to go into their accounts individually and resubscribe them, and there is no simple way to do that en masse so it takes a very long time if you have more than a few accounts to resubscribe.
  • The system goes down sometimes or is difficult to get into - the Eloqua network is sometimes slow to start and I may have to refresh the page for quite a while before it will load the email I'm working on, which can be frustrating. I think it is due to system overloads when there are a lot of users, but I'm not sure.
  • You cannot add attachments to Eloqua emails, which makes it a little difficult. You can host documents on Eloqua, which is very nice, but you have to link them in your email versus making an attachment.

Although a powerful tool, Google Analytics has been catching up in capabilities and is much simpler to use.As analytics move to the spotlight, more sections in a company want to have access to it. However, creating straightforward reports/dashboards and sharing them with different groups is not a strength of Adobe Marketing Cloud.

We have been able to automate so many marketing processes with Eloqua over the past 5 years that the only direction would be to adopt the latest and greatest features Eloqua adds. The alternative would be to go back to the marketing stone-age and start over again. And we would rather move forward with increased automation and efficiency.

Personally, I find it quite easy to use. But for those members of our team who have little or no testing experience, it's been a bit more difficult. There's also training required for development teams in order to have your campaigns coded and set up in the most efficient way. Our developers have been able to do basic and intermediate tests with no difficulty, and they find the interface itself quite intuitive... it's just the extremely complex tests that require a bit more understanding.

Whenever we needed assistance help was easy to access. They understand the request the first time and provided easy to follow instructions to fix it or fixed the issue if it was not something we had control over. It's always best to provide screenshots so support knows exactly what is going on

I give it a 10 because the only issue we had was a result of not following the guidance we were given. Maxymiser provided a customized implementation guide for each site where we were adding the code. On our site implementations when we followed that guide to the letter, it was extremely fast and easy and has worked very well.

In comparison to other services, Adobe is particularly robust, and the platform is better suited to customers with a high level of maturity in the digital environment, who need a platform to overcome and solve day-to-day problems.

It was an inherited platform vs. chosen. The incumbent chose Oracle as it was the best enterprise solution. The company, however, did not require an enterprise solution rendering the full Oracle stack pretty useless, unfortunately. The commercials are expensive yet it is attractive to have a 'blended' CPM style commercial model vs. other vendors that charge you on contacts

Eloqua does not really have a limit on scale and can support huge organizations with massive amounts of data. Our organization uses Eloqua to control all campaign/marketing efforts by injecting all touches with the customer into the tool. Using tools like Eloqua Profiler allows our Sales teams to view interactions that a customer or prospect has had with our website, emails, landing page and more.

Return on Investment

Adobe Marketing Cloud

  • The conversion rate on our targeted emails has risen since we started with Adobe Marketing Cloud.
  • Initially, the ROI was low as the implementation costs were high from a dollar perspective as well as a man hour cost from our end.
  • We are able to directly see how each campaign performs and how we can tweak them based on the data provided by Adobe Marketing Cloud.

  • For our organization it is currently too early to measure ROI, as we have just started using it less than six months ago. The program has helped us meet the objective of communicating with consumers and sharing information across multiple social media platforms seamlessly.
  • Ultimately the program should be able to to help us grow our relationships with consumers, and measure and track consumer activity on the web, which will help us develop web content and content marketing material that will be more appealing to all of our audiences.
  • Since we are a B to B to C company and not selling anything to consumers, it will be hard to measure ROI. That being said, the tool should definitely help us build more awareness among consumers.
