Horizontal Digital has officially been approved as a Salesforce Interaction Studio implementation partner. With this new designation under our belts, we’re excited to help our clients harness the power of Interaction Studio to orchestrate omnichannel campaigns that meet the needs of their customers in real-time.
This Marketing Cloud platform leverages machine learning to identify the next best action — in the moment — for each user based on contextual clues and their previous interactions with your business. It even lets you start personalizing content for anonymous users!
Let’s dig into Interaction Studio’s most powerful features and explore some ways you can use Interaction Studio’s real-time personalization engine to drive engagement and sales.
The right message at the right time — across every touchpoint
By syncing each online and offline experience, Interaction Studio makes it easy to track user behavior and meet their individual needs at each stage in the customer journey.
For instance, if a user is browsing phones on an electronics retailer’s website, Interaction Studio will recognize them upon their next visit and display a selection of the products they’ve previously viewed on the homepage. And if this user schedules an in-store visit to test out a few phones, Interaction Studio can use mobile app data and identifying beacons to tell the rep which exact models they’re interested in. The platform can also be set up to email the customer a personalized coupon for phone accessories a few days later.
In this scenario, Interaction Studio automatically determines the next best action for this individual user and serves up relevant, timely content that satisfies their needs and interests.
The magic of machine learning
When it comes to gleaning actionable insights from customer behavior, Interaction Studio is the gold standard. From providing personalized product recommendations to emailing discounts to users who abandoned their cart, this platform deciphers the most persuasive offers and promotions for each customer based on their age, gender, location, industry and more.
User recognition and customer journey insights
Even if a user is anonymous, Interaction Studio still allows you to harness their journey data via cookies to identify their needs and preferences. It stitches together multiple browsing sessions — turning prospects into known customers.
From sales to service to marketing campaigns, Interaction Studio gives you a 360 view of your customers across every channel. In addition, you’ll be able to pinpoint areas where you can improve the customer experience by understanding how and when users explore brands, begin and end their journeys, switch channels and devices and become inactive.
Streamlined customer service
In today’s world, many customers dread contacting support. And when they have to dial customer service to resolve an issue, they don’t want to have to spell out their account details or tediously explain their needs.
But with Interaction Studio, you can cut to chase and save time for your customers. It shows you exactly what someone was looking at on your website the moment they called your customer service line. So, instead of generically asking, “Hi, how can I help you today?” your customer service rep can say, “I see you’re interested in purchasing an iPhone 11. Any questions I can answer?”
