What Can Effective Pardot Management Do For Your Business?
More and more mid-size businesses to multinational enterprises are integrating Pardot, a leading focused-marketing automation solution, into their existing Salesforce platform. Their goal is to reach more potential clients and to maximize the impact of their email, social media, paid search, and other digital marketing campaigns. Among Pardot’s value-adds to users is its seamless integration within an existing Salesforce database. This way users can immediately benefit from Pardot’s automated and enhanced communication features without interrupting their workflow.
Until a few years ago, Sales and Marketing was a ‘numbers game’ that favored volume over targeting a select demographic to achieve a sale. Pardot evaluates leads, not only assigning a value to each, but also by sorting and directing every form submission to the appropriate person for follow-up. Pardot can solicit specific prospect information via customized forms then store the data in an dynamic list which can be used a number of highly effective ways. Today, the numbers game has been replaced by targeted selection and the belief that “the race goes to the swift”. Therefore, each form submission triggers a series of communication vehicles aimed at capturing the prospect’s attention and facilitating the sales funnel. It is ideal for email marketing, social media and paid search initiatives.
A Powerful Business Tool If Integrated Properly
Since Pardot is a marketing tool that integrates marketing initiatives into an existing superior lead generation software, one might expect nothing more of this merger. After all, to prospects, an immediate response usually leads to a conversion. However, Pardot’s level of granularity is extensive and additionally includes robust reporting functions that will chart a prospect’s progress as well as measure a campaign’s overall effectiveness. Here are some of its features and advantages:
- Tracks prospect behaviors

As you can see with all its levels of granularity, Pardot can be an exceptionally powerful business tool. However, Pardot is not an off-the-shelf, plug and play solution.
