Google announces its first turnkey integration with Salesforce
Sales data from Salesforce Sales Cloud will now be available in Google Analytics 360.
In November 2017, Google announced plans to roll out new integrations between its Analytics 360 product and the Salesforce Sales and Marketing Clouds. The first one — an integration of Salesforce Sales Cloud to Google Analytics 360 — is now available.
Now, offline sales pipeline data such as leads and opportunities can be imported from Sales Cloud directly into Analytics 360, Google’s premium analytics product. The aim is to give marketers a more complete view of customer paths to conversion — including both digital and offline touch points — so they may quickly take action to engage consumers at the right moment.
More integrations are set to come, according to Google’s blog post announcing the initial rollout:
Soon marketers will be able to include conversion data from Sales Cloud in Google Attribution 360 for more accurate data-driven attribution modeling, surface data from Analytics 360 in Marketing Cloud for a more complete understanding of campaign performance, and make audiences created in Analytics 360 available in Marketing Cloud for activation via direct marketing channels like email.
