example above illustrates a process representing an inside sales rep who will first review the inbound response and determine if it is from an existing Customer, existing Prospect or is a net new prospect. From there, the inside sales rep will route the response to the correct owner for follow-up and create the field opportunity, or make an outbound phone call to qualify the response and create an inside opportunity to work. This process may vary depending on your organization but it is very important to outline your process.
We have a parent campaign for an overall Webinar series but this particular campaign represents the Webinar event for driving sales/interest for a particular product (notice the Product Area field). Although this screen shot does not follow the recommended naming convention in the tips & tricks box, you get the idea! You can also “sub-type” in your naming convention. For example, you can do that in your “Type” picklist or use dependent picklists to accomplish this. You could have “Type” defined as “Event” and have a dependent picklist called “sub-type” and have values such as web seminar, tradeshow, conference, seminar, etc. It’s important to track your success rate and capture which campaigns are effective while you track your costs, etc. Notice the “Lead Source” field, it’s important to understand where your traffic is coming from for this campaign, again for tying back your budget dollars. We are all trying to do more with less!
Here are some ideas for further classifying and categorizing your campaigns to help you track product interest (which products are more popular, where should you spend your time), advertisements (which publications are better than others, which one should you drop), agencies (is there a correlation to poor performing campaigns and creative work), and offers (are demos the key to success, what offers seem to do the trick). These are just some initial ideas but you might have many more!
Speaking of your traffic and where it’s coming from, you also want to manage your campaign responses (as discussed in campaign preparation). The Advanced Setup button on your campaign is where you set up your member responses. A member is a lead or contact that has been added to a campaign. Total responses is a standard calculated field that helps you track who has responded to your campaign. The next slide explains how this works.
In a nutshell, you can set up different member status’ which tell you and Sales exactly what your customer or prospect did. Not only that, it can also tell you what the follow-up steps should be. Upon setting these up, you select which action counts toward a response to you. For this user conference event example, we are considering whether they registered, registered w/ attendance and registered w/ not showing up as a response. You can always report on conferences with no shows to help in future planning. The “Total Responses” field/metric on the campaign page in the previous slide counts the number of members who have a responded status. Each member can only have one associated status which avoids double counting.
These metrics are highly valuable especially the Total Value Won Opportunities. (Keep in mind that campaign influence does NOT count toward the opportunity metrics however you can report on campaign influence. Use the Campaigns with Influenced Opportunities report to view opportunities that have been influenced by multiple campaigns. You can see the Primary Campaign Source in that report as well as the other campaigns that influenced the opportunity – we cover Campaign Influence shortly). Also, make sure you fill in the Actual Cost field as this will help calculate your ROI.
Here is a sample of the Campaign ROI Analysis Report. This is the ultimate metric we are seeking, among other metrics of course.
one single campaign isn’t enough, there are multiple tactics that come together which influence the creation and closing of opportunities. You need to enable this feature in order to use it. Upon enabling this feature, you can set a Campaign Influence Time Frame that specifies the maximum number of days between the campaign first associated date and the opportunity created date, during which a campaign is considered influential. For example, if you specify a Campaign Influence Time Frame of 30 days and one of your contacts becomes a member of a campaign on June 1, the campaign is considered influential to any opportunity that is created and associated with the contact by June 30. Use the association rules to configure additional criteria that campaigns must meet to be automatically associated to an opportunity. Also, the Primary Campaign Influence field on the Opportunity record itself is considered the most influential and this is what populates the campaign metrics previously discussed. Important: In addition, when you convert a lead that is linked to a campaign, that campaign is automatically inserted into the opportunity Primary Campaign Source field. If the lead is linked to multiple campaigns, the campaign with the most recently updated member status is mapped to the new opportunity.
In order to use Campaign Influence successfully, consider these best practices.
One of the tools we provide to help you with executing your campaigns is HTML e-mail templates. These are very easy to set up where you can create letterheads and insert graphics from the Docs tab. If you are not using these today, this is a must see. You can build e-mail templates for your campaigns that drive the call to action to your website (e.g. Registration) that will automatically add them to that specific campaign (from the website using Web-2-Lead feature discussed later). We talk about how to manage responses in the Campaign Tracking section of this presentation. However, you need to build a process around receiving inbound responses (discussed in Campaign Tracking) just ahead! Another great feature is our HTML E-mail Status related list. This will alert Sales that their customer has seen or opened their e-mail. Consider using HTML E-mail Templates for Sales to use (outside of a Campaign). This will help with their sales effectiveness and provide standards for communicating with customers and prospects.
Another great tool, with Web-to-Lead, you can gather information from your company’s website and automatically generate up to 500 new leads a day. Your company may already have a registration or other type of page where users enter their contact information. You may also want to create a jump page where prospects respond to a campaign. With a little extra HTML code, you can redirect that information to Salesforce to create new leads. Key fields are hidden so if you plan to capture additional information, remember to create those fields on the Lead object, that will help with follow-up. Consider an internal telemarketing organization/team which receives and qualifies all inbound responses. Their attention to your Campaign, and diligence in follow-up, will positively impact your Pipeline generated. If you have technical resources on hand, consider leveraging Apex to assist with automatic de-duping upon entry. We always recommend a data quality strategy in general. We can talk more about data quality in another session.
Upon executing your campaign, specifically adding your target list to your campaign, consider using our Mass Add Campaign Members feature. For example, you might have a Campaign to target existing customers who are interested in your Mobile product and you want to send a mass e-mail to them. You would add these existing Contacts or Leads to your campaign with this wizard using Views. You can also accomplish the same thing using Reports. The last option here is adding members through importing a file, this is the import leads feature. Make sure you have your data de-duplication strategy ironed out when importing leads. Salesforce has a “Find Duplicates” button for Leads and a Merge Contacts button from the Contacts related list of an account.
There are a number of ways to use e-mail marketing. Salesforce offers the combination of HTML E-mail templates covered a few slides back and the Mass Email feature on both the Leads and Contacts main page. You can also use the mass email queue to view the status of scheduled mass emails and cancel mass emails if necessary (Setup | Personal Setup | Email | My Mass Emails. Our mass email feature does not send e-mail to anyone who has the standard field “Email Opt Out” checked. Since salesforce.com is not an e-mail marketing vendor, there are many features we do not offer so we do recommend looking at some of our e-mail marketing partners. Follow the link above to our Appexchange.
Now let’s talk about the responses based on your program. Some common response channels include (listed above) Web form, phone, personal e-mail, registration/attendance for a conference, tradeshow or web seminar (events). Every campaign has a specific outcome. As we discussed during Campaign Setup, the values in the Member Status picklist capture campaign outcomes. Customize your member status values to represent the possible outcomes for your campaigns. What I want to focus on here is what are the choices for the call to action. We have different tools to help you capture the responses or updating responses: Website response using Web-2-Lead, individual manual updates with related lists and mass update capabilities. Let’s look at each one.
Customers and prospects respond via phone or mail. Typically responses come in one-by-one rather than in bulk although one-by-one is losing its popularity given our electronic world. However, common responses of this type include: 1. A call to your sales team or other department 2. A card that customers and prospects mail to your office To track these types of non-automated responses, a sales or marketing team member can manually update the Campaign History for the lead or contact in Salesforce. Above portrays a sample process of what could happen when updating manually. Here are the steps in the application to take.
Another type of response is any response that you track in an offline list. Common examples include: Trade show attendance tracked in an Excel or Google Spreadsheet Email responses that have been collated into a list by your email agency Mass Add Campaign Members You can add existing contacts and leads through an easy wizard when mass adding them as campaign members. You can accomplish this with Views AND Reports. Mass Updating the Status of Campaign Members You can update existing members status through an easy wizard. You can accomplish this with Views. Note: If you are importing a file to update the statuses , you can update only the member status of an existing lead or contact so it’s imperative if you are “working” with a list that was generated FROM Salesforce (exported to Excel for example at which time you will update later), that you include the Lead or Contact ID. There is lots of help on this in our Help & Training link so be sure to check that out. The moral of the story is any time you are working with lead or contacts outside of the application, drag along their IDs so it’s easy to mass update later. Mass Remove Campaign Members You can delete existing members from a campaign through an easy wizard. You can accomplish this with Views.
Campaign measurement is the best part! The ROI Analysis report is one of our favorites. The Campaign ROI Analysis Report calculates the return on investment and average costs for your campaigns. The ROI is calculated as the net gain (Total Value Won Opps - Actual Cost) divided by the Actual Cost. The ROI result is expressed as a percentage. So, don’t forget to fill out your Actual Cost on the Campaign record. Other reports help with response rates by type of campaign. Use all these analysis tools to help make decisions on future campaigns and how to improve them. Note: The 3 reports circled in red are also available on the Campaigns home page.
If you decide to use one of our e-mail marketing partners, you can integrate e-mail statistics or upload the data with Apex Dataloader. You of course need to create the custom fields on the Campaign object first. Then when you build your report (see sample above), you can add Custom Summary Formula fields to your report to tell you the email effectiveness based on Opens, Clicks, Bounce, and Unsubscribe. The formula for “Email Effectiveness” is: ((Campaign.Clickthroughs__c:SUM / Campaign.Sent__c:SUM) * 60) + ((Campaign.Opened__c:SUM / Campaign.Sent__c:SUM) * 40) - ((Campaign.Bounces__c:SUM / (Campaign.Sent__c:SUM + Campaign.Bounces__c:SUM)) * 20) - ((Campaign.Opt_out__c:SUM / Campaign.Sent__c:SUM) * 80) Also, you can create a Custom Summary Formula field for “Open Rate” which is: (Campaign.Opened__c:SUM/Campaign.Sent__c:SUM) * 100 THE DATA BEHIND THE EMAIL STATISTICS ABOVE ARE FROM AN EMAIL MARKETING VENDOR BUT THESE FIELDS ARE STANDARD WITH MOST EMAIL MARKETING VENDORS. THE ONLY FIELD THAT IS NATIVE TO SALESFORCE IN THIS SCREEN SHOT IS CAMPAIGN NAME AND CAMPAIGN STATUS. We wanted to share you a sample of what you can report on when you bring in an email marketing partner.
Set up the dashboard that is right for you and measure the success of your campaigns. Our AppExchange does provide you with a couple which will save you a lot of time (see links above). Remember you can always customize whatever you download.
To measure the success of marketing programs in real-time, our customers use dashboards that can be used to measure any marketing metric that is critical to your organization. For First American, they measure lead conversion rates. First American increased lead conversion rates by 100% by closing the loop in marketing with Salesforce. First American’s primary problem was neglected leads. Sales wasn’t following up on every lead and no one was holding them accountable. With Salesforce Marketing, First American solved the problem not only by tracking every lead, but by customizing lead information to attach the right information to every lead every lead was better qualified. Salesforce.com conducts a quarterly on line Relationship Survey, hosted by CustomerSat (www.CustomerSat.com). Respondents mentioned some of the above CRM success metrics they have achieved with Marketing from their use of Salesforce.
