Two years ago when Salesforce announced its plans to acquire marketing software company ExactTarget, it made total sense to me. Today, Salesforce Marketing Cloud has evolved from ExactTarget and enables marketers to create personalized, cross-channel customer journeys. But personalizing those assets for global markets still remains a complex translation challenge that, for most, is still slow, with unpredictable costs and outcomes. That’s where Cloudwords comes in.
“Inspiration in the Nation” was Marketo’s theme for the 2015 Summit, and wow, did they deliver! From the early morning fun run, to educational sessions, happy hour networking, and inspiring speakers, kudos to Marketo for putting on a phenomenal user conference. Cloudwords would like to thank both our customers and new friends for stopping by our booth to say hello.
The Cloudwords team is gearing up to showcase our marketing globalization platform, connect with customers, and make new friends at the Marketo Marketing Nation Summit next week. Our team of marketing and localization experts will be on hand at booth #506 to provide globalization tips, tricks and best practices to help businesses translate content easier, faster, and more cost-effectively with Cloudwords’ award-winning integration with Marketo. Here are five reasons you should stop by and say hello, hola, bonjour, hallo, ciao…
1) If you use Marketo and need to localize content and campaigns for international markets, Cloudwords is the ONLY technology integrated with Marketo for automated translation. Trust me, you will be amazed at how much easier the translation process is when all you have to do is “click” to move content from Marketo, into Cloudwords and off to your preferred translation vendor.
At Cloudwords, we know how integral developers are to building a highly functional technology stack that allows end users to seamlessly perform the critical tasks required for their role. Whether a company needs Cloudwords to integrate with their organization’s content management system, Web CMS, marketing automation platform, knowledge management system, version control system, or even their own product, they turn to their developer team to make the magic happen.
The developer community has always been top of mind at Cloudwords. From the start, we made Cloudwords’ open API and extensive documentation easily accessible and user-friendly to better enable developers to get whatever content they have, in whatever systems they use, easily translated via the Cloudwords platform. Along the way, we’ve continued to add enhancements to our Developer Center to make integrations even easier, such as a sandbox environment for developers to use to simulate and test their integration prior to roll-out, as well as delivering pre-built integrations with leading content systems. And now, we’ve introduced our very own “boot camp” for developers -- a new API Tutorial that provides the complete set of API calls required to program integration with Cloudwords.
I love Scott Brinker’s opening line in his recent blog introducing the 2015 version of his ever-growing, ever-popular Marketing Technology Landscape Supergraphic: “There’s a lot of marketing technology in the world, my friend.”
Marketing automation technology has changed the way marketers engage customers, allowing users to nurture leads through automated campaigns. Email marketing, for example, is one of the most powerful tools in a marketer’s toolbox, and by using marketing automation software, marketers can make email marketing more effective by customizing the messages that individuals see to help customers move through the buying process.
