Pros

Encourages cross-team communications. Great support from the vendor, and strong community of users and third-party integrators.
Was quite easy to understand for novice and navigate around and had easy to use and useful automated marketing features that made reaching a large audience seamlessly easy.
We use salesforce daily to engage with customers on a daily basis. It has been very helpful in managing customer journeys, sending and preparing emails, and getting good reporting.

Pros

Cons

The price, the user experience, the lack of multibrand use. When I threatened to take my business elsewhere we had one call with the VP but then he stopped responding to calls and emails.
It felt like they were just as fed up with this crap tool as we are. Although they didn't say it, I think one of our key employees quit over the frustration of dealing with marketing cloud.
Not all pending sends will list themselves under "Pending Sends," so that has caused some issues with accidentally sending the same email to the same list more than once.

A Very Complicated But Useful CRM Solution

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

This platform is on the right track and an easy choice if you are a big Salesforce user. It is well integrated with Salesforce with amply bells and whistles to benefit advanced marketing automation and campaign management.

Cons

Requires a dedicated platform expert, and their tech support is lacking; too many tickets need escalation … and there are expensive upgrades and integrations.

Exceptional functionality, matching price

Reviewed 4 years ago

It's a SalesForce product now! There is still a fair bit of work to be done by the SF team in order to make this platform as good as it could potentially be, but it's on the right track. Great choice if you're a die-hard SF user who wants to get more of your MarComm stack.

Pros

Relatively well integrated with SalesForce, so this is a good choice if you're fully utilizing SalesForce for tracking sales. There are plenty of bells and whistles that allow you to take full advantage of advanced marketing automation and campaign management.

Cons

Non-profits and other smaller organizations may find it challenging to implement this platform. It is highly extensible and customizable, but that also means that there can be a high cost associated with any customizations. Several colleagues who are actively using this platform have mentioned challenges with upgrades and such.

Need to have more control on SMS Campaigns

Pros

We see SF is doing good by providing 360-degree digital marketing upgrades on SFMC. ExactTarget is changing day to day

Cons

Not only mobile push notifications we need to have web push notifications also. Need to have more control over Email Campaign Deliverability.

Large Campaigns work well with Salesforce Marketing Cloud

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Rather than using a standard marketing automation tool, we switched to Salesforce Marketing Cloud. Besides its powerful automation feature, it is also tightly integrated with Salesforce CRM. Sending personalized marketing campaigns is breeze with Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

Cons

To segment the data, Working knowledge of SQL is required. Integration of GTM and API's is heavily reliant on tech team.
