Adobe Marketing Cloud

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.

Use it when you need one platform that can provide integration among all cloud products - Email Marketing, Marketing Analytics, Web Marketing, Events Management, Loyalty Management, Campaign/Dialogue Management and Marketing Resource Management.Don't use it when users are not very technical.

Pros

  • 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.

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.

A very conservative data security policy limits the organization to a hosted solution. At particular issue is the tendency of cloud based CRMs to have data centres based in the US, a major issue for Canadian consumers. Once you have integrated a system of this size and complexity, and have the staff resources to utilize it effectively, it's hard to justify a move to an alternative. Consider Siebel if you are a conservatively run organization with a large database of customers and a big marketing team

Alternatives Considered

As an agency, we are vendor agnostic so we typically recommend a tool based on our client's specific needs. Both Google Analytics 360 and Adobe Marketing Cloud are powerful tools, but if a client does not have the appropriate organizational pre-requisites to leverage the outputs, they should not invest in either and focus on that.

Siebel offers a lot of the same functionality as the major cloud based CRM's. Its flexibility for custom configuration is a definite advantage if you have the resources. Like other enterprise CRM's you need some dedicated staffing to get the most out of the system. As the industry, Oracle included, continue to push to cloud based solutions, Siebel (and some of its competitors) seem a bit under-loved, particularly in terms of user experience. If you are committed to going with a hosted solution and you have a large marketing team with the financial resources to keep yourself on up-to-date versions then Siebel should be considered

Return on Investment

  • As an agency, we typically see the highest return with clients that are more sophisticated and that have the ability to invest in multiple components, as well as have the internal resources and processes to act on the data and insights.
  • I've also seen less sophisticated clients invest in one or two components without having a deep understanding of how to use them or the expertise to use them efficiently to have a significant business impact.

  • Overall great positive ROI with clean and clear customer relationship management leading to higher customer satisfaction.
  • For small business, ROI may not turn out to be positive as cost can be very high compared incremental gain.
