Real-Time Sales Content Consumption Analytics
Through the new integration, Seismic’s sales content usage and engagement analytics, which reveal in real-time when and for how long prospects interact with sales content, and whether they share it with others, can now be incorporated into Marketo’s lead scoring functionality.
Advanced Campaign Segmentation and Better Reporting
Seismic’s LiveSend analytics track when prospects have engaged with a piece of content and for how long—down to the individual pages. Incorporating Seismic into areas such as Marketo email templates and landing pages opens up new data-backed insights for advanced campaign segmentations based on content engagement. And, with these new analytics capabilities, marketers now have a 360-degree look into how buyers interact with all content created by marketing teams, from the first touch to close.
