What happens when you combine customer data from different sources? You create powerful segments, improve attribution analytics, enable real-time engagement-driven alerts. With the new Terminus – Pardot ABM Integration, you can now do just that to create superior account-based marketing. Brilliant.
For those who are unfamiliar with these two platforms: Terminus is the leading account-based marketing platform. Salesforce Pardot is the leading B2B marketing automation platform.
The Terminus-Pardot integration was announced this week. I already happily commented on this on social media earlier. However I thought to share it on the blog as well as it is a great development.
What the Terminus – Pardot ABM Integration Means
For Salesforce Pardot, this means: enabling marketers to drive a full-funnel, account-centric strategy with shared data, improved analytics, advanced reporting, and lead-to-account mapping capabilities.
A few months ago, Pardot invited me to join a small group of early adopters to become Salesforce ABM accredited. In the workshops we strung together a host of Salesforce core and Pardot features to form the foundation for companies to excel their ABM initiatives with the platform.
Now, thanks to the Pardot-Terminus integration, companies using Pardot can now natively leverage the account intelligence they hold in Terminus. And they can merge it with their existing marketing intelligence in Pardot. All this for the purpose of realising superior marketing results.
“This provides Pardot users with the ability to identify high-value accounts in real-time, while accessing Terminus’ engagement data to build sophisticated nurture and segmentation campaigns at an account level.” Explains Terminus.
In sum: An ABM Supercharge
“This integration can make it easier for marketers to combine existing marketing automation data with our high-performing account intelligence data. This capability means users can supercharge their work done in Pardot with a more exhaustive data asset on their accounts.”
Bryan Wade, Terminus’ Chief Product Officer points out how it’s not only benefitting existing Pardot customers, but certainly also existing Terminus clients.
