Exploring Einstein solutions for Marketing Cloud

Einstein is the rockstar of the year at Salesforce, and it’s no wonder, as the CRM is deploying all its power to make AI the ideal ally for every organization. Its idea is to place AI at the center of every business process, department, and team. Of course, marketing is no exception. Einstein for Marketing Cloud is not new, but its functionalities are extremely powerful for optimizing all your marketing campaigns. It facilitates visualizing engagement achieved with tools like Engagement Scoring and Frequency. Additionally, through messaging insights alerts, you’ll receive real-time feedback and actionable insights, ensuring your messages resonate with your audience. As if that weren’t enough, it allows you to apply search tags to images, determine the optimal number of emails to send, and indicate the opportune time for sending.

In short, every marketer’s dream. But let’s delve deeper.

What is Einstein for Marketing Cloud?

Einstein for Marketing Cloud can be understood as the set of AI-driven products designed to optimize your campaigns. These solutions provide valuable insights into your audience, the optimal time to send messages, engagement frequency, and the most effective content. Additionally, with Einstein, you can hyper-personalize every interaction with your customers, delivering the information they need in a timely manner. In short, these solutions guarantee the creation of highly effective campaigns, maximizing ROI.

Einstein Products for Marketing Cloud

Einstein products for marketing are positioned between two main Salesforce products: Marketing Cloud Engagement and MCAE (formerly Pardot).

Marketing Cloud Engagement

Engagement Scoring

It predicts consumer interaction with emails and mobile push notifications. Leveraging customer data and machine learning, it assigns scores reflecting the likelihood of each contact interacting with emails or automatic alerts.

Einstein Engagement Scoring

Scoring Splits

Applies a second level of segmentation to an audience segment based on the probability score of response for each contact. This allows marketing teams to more effectively direct their efforts by segmenting potential customers into groups with a higher likelihood of a positive response. This functionality enhances the personalization of strategies and messages, achieving higher conversion rates and greater campaign effectiveness.

Message Insights

Provides alerts about marketing performance in any component of Marketing Cloud. The Einstein notification badge alerts you to any relevant changes in the performance of your emails. It monitors engagement rates (opens, clicks, and subscription cancellations). When an anomaly is detected, Einstein generates an alert with details about it and its context, allowing proactive strategies to be implemented.

Send-Time Optimization

Predicts the optimal time to send a message, increasing the likelihood of user interaction. This process analyzes recent engagement data of each contact weekly to adjust the sending model. When there is not enough data, a general model based on company data is applied. The send-time optimization dashboard displays future interaction analysis based on approximately 20 variables collected by Einstein, using machine learning over a 90-day interaction period. This way, it determines the best time to send email messages to each contact within the next 24 hours. This feature is also present in MCAE.

Engagement Frequency

Determines the optimal number of emails to send to your contacts and subscribers. This avoids both lack of attention by sending too few messages and fatigue, subscription cancellations, and spam reports by sending too many. Its calculation is based on data from the last 28 days, analyzing only commercial emails, and requires at least five different sending frequencies in that period.

Copy Insights

Examines the subject lines of commercial emails using text analysis and natural language processing to provide linguistic information. This allows for creating more effective subject lines that drive email engagement. With the performance evaluator, you can compare previous subject lines to predict how they will affect the message engagement rate. This tool is updated weekly and to provide accurate results, it requires at least 10 different subject lines sent to 30 subscribers within a 30-day period.

Content Selection

Is a tool for generating personalized content that operates in real-time and without the need for code. It selects content at the moment of opening, allowing for continuous evaluation and experimentation of winning content to optimize click-through rates. It can also replace send segmentation and AMPscript personalization by correlating asset attributes with consumer profile information. Key concepts include asset catalog, asset class, asset attribute, and selection rule, which allow for organizing and customizing content according to business goals.

Einstein Content Selection

Content Testing

Allows testing and selecting images in real-time to optimize engagement. In automatic tests, Einstein applies advanced game theory functions to establish an appropriate balance between content optimization quality and page load time. On the other hand, the manual approach distributes content evenly until a winner is determined, either manually or upon reaching a certain number of clicks. For more complex personalized guidance, using Content Selector is recommended.

Content Tagging

Automatically applies search tags to image files in your Marketing Cloud account. You can instruct Einstein to add up to 25 tags per image. Einstein tags existing JPG, JPEG, and PNG files that are 10 MB or less in size. Additionally, it analyzes new images every 24 hours, automatically applying tags according to account limits.

Email Recommendations

Allows observing customer behavior and offering the best next content or product. You can customize recommendations according to your organization’s rules. Recommendations are displayed on your website as predefined images and links, triggered when users interact with the email. These recommendations are processed just before users see them, ensuring the delivery of the most updated recommendations without compromising performance.

Web Recommendations

Utilizes Einstein’s capabilities to offer personalized content to each website visitor based on their behavior and preferences. You can refine recommendations to fit your business’s specific rules using scenarios in the application. Predictive content is displayed in placeholders on your website and delivered through a JSON or HTML/JS response, with the JSON response being the recommended method due to its flexibility and stylization capability by the web team.

Web Recommendations

Content Builder

Allows generating subject lines and body text for messages. Start by entering a key message of up to 300 characters. Then choose a brand personality and optionally enter a sample subject line or body text. If you don’t like the generated options, start over and create another set of options. Iterate on your favorite options until you find the ideal subject line or body text. You can generate content in both Einstein Copy Insights and Content Builder. The Einstein Trust Layer protects against bias and toxicity. Additionally, it uses data masking to prevent exposure of sensitive personal information, and your data is never stored.

Subject Line Generation

Generates subject lines from a key message or a sample subject line, adapting them to the personality and identity of your brand.

Generate Subject Lines

Body Copy Generation

Enables generative capabilities to develop body text content from a key message or a sample paragraph, aligning it with your brand’s personality.

Marketing Cloud Account Engagement (MCAE)

Behavior Scoring

Analyzes each customer’s behavior history and assigns scores distinguishing between positive and negative activities. This means that the behavior score automatically decreases when customers show negative signals for their conversion probability, such as prolonged periods without engagement. Each prospect receives a comparative score from 0 to 100 compared to other customer records in the database.

Campaign Insights

Analyzes prospects’ potential engagement with marketing assets and their key attributes to identify demographic and engagement trends. It also detects anomalies in engagement data and provides detailed analysis to assist marketing teams. This allows for a better understanding of campaign performance and informed decision-making.

Key Account Identification

Identifies and prioritizes accounts with the highest probability of conversion. It helps companies focus their sales and marketing efforts on strategic customers, fostering higher customer retention and stronger business growth.

"Excellent partner! We have been working with SkyPlanner for almost one year now. It has been a pleasure working with their team. If it wasn't for them we would have not been able to go-live with our platform when we did. They understood our needs and were not only able to execute but guide us in our decisions. We continue using them for our on-going projects. They have a deep understanding of the overall platform. Their team is always ready, willing and able to help."

Ivan de Moya — VP Innovation Technology @ SunStreet

"SkyPlanner was professional, creative, reliable and extremely accommodating. From the onset of the project, it was clear that we had found the right partner. Our project was complex and every time we hit a roadblock, SkyPlanner was helpful in identifying and implementing a solution. Jorge Fernandez [SkyPlanner's Co-Founder & Managing Director] was our primary contact and we cannot say enough about what an asset he was in bringing our project to resolution."

Ryan Borcherds — Marketing @ Deliver Lean

"On time, on budget, great quality on every project. Whenever I get asked to recommend a Salesforce.com partner, I do not hesitate on my reply: Go with SkyPlanner. I had the privilege to have worked with many teams over the years, none have brought to the table the enthusiasm the SkyPlanner team has. This combined with their professionalism and expertise are the reasons I ONLY recommend one partner: SkyPlanner. In every project (and we have done many) they have consistently delivered on time and on budget with significantly superior quality."

Juan Meza — Strategic Business Development Director @ Sony Electronics Inc.

"Outstanding Service! Happy to have them as our partner! SkyPlanner is by far the most experienced and reliable Salesforce partner.

I cannot stress enough how happy we are to have them as our partner and we look forward to continue building our relationship."
