Salesforce Pardot

Powerful lead generation and marketing automation platform

Saleforce’s Pardot is a platform for automated B2B software that offers a variety of key features. Further benefits are offered by the automation of CRM marketing, which is fully supported by Saleforce. The software provides a seamless bridge between sales and marketing functions. Pardot complements Salesforce’s Marketing Cloud ecosystem with robust, marketing-focused lead management.

Its powerful automation and personalization capabilities, powered by the larger Marketing Cloud, enable users to deliver optimized communications to leads at the most opportune time to meet leading digital marketing tips.

Who is Salesforce Pardot suitable for?

Given the pricing model and all the options available to customers, you might wonder who the ideal buyer for this software is. As a marketing automation platform, Pardot is aimed at Salesforce software users. The product is particularly suitable for medium-sized B2B companies.

For smaller companies, the software is also suitable, as long as it has the resources to bear the costs. However, using it requires a large marketing budget, which is often beyond the means of smaller companies. Pardot is best suited for companies with their own sales organization that are working to close individual deals while generating and nurturing more leads.

Medium-sized companies will do well with this system, especially those that specialize in email marketing and CRM. The tools are designed for team collaboration and are well suited for third-party integrations. So if a company is already using Google AdWords or WebEx, it will feel welcome in Salesforce.

Larger companies will also appreciate Pardot’s offerings. Instead of focusing on size, it is better to think about what industry the company in question is in. This system is tailored to companies that focus on B2B services, so it’s less about how big or small they are.

What is the difference between Salesforce Marketing Automation and Pardot?

The main difference is in the campaigns that individuals create. Both services provide detailed analytics and ROI tracking.

  • With Pardot, the system tracks first-touch prospects. Customers need to follow the lead themselves.
  • Salesforce Marketing Automation can track customers or targets anywhere along their journey from prospect to buyer. In addition, Salesforce automatically integrates contacts into existing sales funnels.

What is the difference between Pardot and Salesforce Marketing Cloud?

Both entities provide custom dashboards, analytics, and automated interactions.

  • Salesforce Marketing Cloud is almost identical to Pardot. However, pricing is based on company size, while Pardot has subscription-based pricing.
  • Marketing Cloud also provides more insight into the customer’s sales journey, complete with one-on-one training and smoother messaging.
  • Pardot is focusing on more B2B tools like marketing automation and more CRM-like integrations.

How Pardot works

Pardot is more than an add-on to Salesforce. The software provides everything companies need to create meaningful customer connections and strengthen their marketing position. More leads lead to building a sales pipeline, personalized and optimized messages eventually lead to higher sales. Pardot is one of the most important components of Salesforce products.

The platform uses Oracle Storage Systems as well as tracking codes and cookies. Depending on the actions of the prospects and contacts, the tracking period can last from a few months to years. From the Settings menu in the user dashboard, customers can see their account details, which show them the maximum cookie tracking duration.
