AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2015) - Get Smart Content, a leading website segmentation and targeting platform, today announced that it has launched a Smart Content application now available in the Oracle Marketing AppCloud. This new Smart Content application helps marketers achieve personalization throughout the B2B buyer's journey -- across ads, website visits and email -- using Oracle Marketing Cloud technologies. The Oracle Marketing AppCloud is one of the industry's most comprehensive marketing technology ecosystems, offering Oracle customers a broad set of marketing apps and data services to extend and optimize their technology investments.
The Oracle Marketing Cloud provides chief marketing officers (CMOs) and their teams with data-driven solutions to simplify marketing resources and deliver more personalized customer-centric experiences across every channel to attract and retain ideal customers. These modern marketing solutions connect cross-channel, email, mobile, content, and social marketing with data management capabilities and activation opportunities to offer the most optimized experience, for customers.
Smart Content provides an enhanced data set, through the Oracle Data Cloud, which can enable Oracle Marketing Cloud customers with further ability to drive reach, relationships and revenue.
- REACH: From Target Segment to Website Visitor - With the Oracle Data Management Platform, enterprise business marketers are able to discover and reach new audiences through a variety of third-party behavioral, firmographic and demographic data. Smart Content connects this data to other referral and on-site data collected about a visitor to enable more personalized experiences on the website as well as provide additional targeting opportunities through acquisition activities, like display advertising.
- RELATIONSHIP: From Anonymous Website Visitor to Known Lead - Once on the website, Smart Content uses patented technology to serve personalized, dynamic content that starts to build a 1:1 relationship with visitors. By effectively motivating a visitor to complete a form, brands can quickly turn that anonymous visitor into a known lead, and key behavioral and demographic data can be passed to a customer relationship management (CRM) or marketing automation database.
- REVENUE: From Known Lead to Customer - Once leads are identified, Oracle Marketing Cloud customers can use Oracle B2B Cross-Channel Marketing to efficiently nurture those leads and move them toward a conversion. With Smart Content, personalization can extend beyond targeted emails. As leads click through from a targeted email to the brand website, their personalized experience can continue throughout their final stages of research and consideration.
"B2B marketers are on a quest to achieve 1:1 targeting throughout the buyer's journey, and until now, the customer's experience on the website has been a difficult one to address," said Jim Eustace, founder and CEO of Get Smart Content. "Smart Content's integration with The Oracle Marketing Cloud's Oracle's B2B Cross-Channel Marketing allows for the personalization of experiences for known leads across the web and email. Additionally, Smart Content uses data fueled by the Oracle Data Cloud, with the ability for activation through the Oracle Data Management Platform, to also personalize the web experiences of top-of-the-funnel anonymous visitors -- roughly 95 percent of all visitors. In other words, it's the important piece of the puzzle that finally enables personalization throughout the B2B buyer's journey."
"We are committed to helping marketers extend and optimize their technology investments by providing the industry's most comprehensive marketing technology ecosystem," said Ryan Buma, vice president, Oracle Marketing AppCloud. "With the addition of Smart Content, marketers using the Oracle Marketing AppCloud will now be able to extend personalization across email and the brand website -- a critical point to convert visitors and leads into customers."
Oracle Marketing Cloud customers can visit the Get Smart Content Topliners community site to install the application and begin implementing Smart Content in Oracle Marketing Cloud.
