Marketers can use Eloqua to analyze and measure their customer data, online and offline through multiple channels and sources. Through one interface, you'll gain access to data on customer profiles, user behavior, and marketing campaigns. This allows you to identify potential buyers, determine what triggers purchases, and send real-time responses to customers and users.
Eloqua's out-of-the-box design editing tools empower users without HTML or CSS coding experience to build responsive emails, forms, and landing pages. With Eloqua's drag-and-drop interface, it's easy to set up personalized marketing campaigns. Also, a whiteboard feature allows you to map each stage of your marketing campaigns, giving managers the ability to modify steps, add new assets, or pause the campaign.
Eloqua empowers non-tech-savvy users to pull reports on customer profiles and user behavior records without involving the IT team. Running lead scoring models on contacts is simple, and a listener framework notifies marketers of lead scoring changes as soon as they occur.
Eloqua's marketing measurement tools offer actionable insights into the success of your marketing efforts through high-level overviews and up-close, granular investigations. As an Oracle product, Eloqua's data is compatible with Oracle's business intelligence platform, which organizes data into the reports and dashboards that come standard with the system. You can also set up customized dashboards and reports to suit your needs.
The sales enablement features included with Eloqua integrate the efforts of your sales and marketing teams so they can work together to achieve better results. These features give sales teams granular information on individual leads (like web and social media activity), which allows you to send targeted and closely-tracked emails to leads that fit specific profiles. The sales enablement features also integrate with your CRM, Microsoft Outlook, LinkedIn, PathFactory, Mintigo, and Demandbase data to provide more information on each contact.
Buffer's social media publishing tools allow you to tailor and perfect your posts to fit the nuances of each social network your company uses. Use the platform to design drafts of your posts, collaborate with team members, finetune your strategy, and plan the timing of each post for maximum effectiveness — all from a single platform that gives you a bird's-eye view of your content-lineup.
Buffer's platform enhances business-to-customer interactions by expanding your ability to immediately respond to social media conversations, resolve customer problems, and collaborate with the right team members to create a better, more interactive experience between your audience and brand. With Buffer's shared team inbox, you can interact with customers on a one-on-one basis across all your social media platforms — be it Facebook, Twitter, or Instragam — from a single interface. Buffer also includes 'collision detection' features — that show which team members are viewing a conversation to prevent duplicate responses — and the ability to leave notes for others who might respond to the conversation later.
Buffer tracks data pertaining to all of your team's social media interactions — then uses this information to create performance reports that will help you improve customer engagement, grow your audience, and boost sales. With data on all of your social media platforms visible from a single, interactive analytics dashboard, everyone on your team has access to the information, metrics, and insights they need. Drill into statistics on individual posts and zoom out for general information. You can also customize reports to show specific team members exactly what they need to see.
