Wunderkind Integrates with Salesforce Marketing Cloud to Help eCommerce Brands Scale Personalized Experiences at Every Step of the Customer Lifecycle
Wunderkind, a leading consumer engagement platform that scales one-to-one messages for top brands, today announced a milestone in its partnership with leading customer relationship management (CRM) provider Salesforce, enhancing Salesforce Marketing Cloud's data-sharing through a direct integration with Journey Builder. The strategic integration will help brands better identify when consumers land on their website, increase volume of triggered emails, and allow brands to prioritize their personalized messages over general marketing messages. In addition, Wunderkind's advanced onsite targeting, behavioral triggers, and deployments allow brands to capture new emails at the highest rate, supercharging their Salesforce list.

"As ecommerce and digital advertising become increasingly competitive and consumer shopping behavior continues to evolve, it is even more crucial for brands to deliver personalized experiences at every step of the consumer journey," said Michael Osborne, President of Wunderkind. "Wunderkind and Salesforce are ideal partners to help fine tune the consumer-retailer relationship and reach consumers with the correct message at the right time. We are proud to integrate our best-in-class products to empower brands with the best marketing tools while maximizing their investment in the customer experience."

The Wunderkind-Salesforce Journey Builder Sender Integration ensures brands have access to reporting and analytics all in one place. Wunderkind's integration with Journey Builder also ensures triggered emails merge with frequency capping and suppression rules, which means the right email sends go to the right people at the right time to drive more revenue.

"As a fast-growing eCommerce clothing retailer, we found it difficult to determine when people were visiting our site and if they had already signed up for our emails," said Brigitte Barron, Director of Global CRM & Customer Growth at e.l.f. Cosmetics. "By tapping Wunderkind and the Salesforce solutions suite, we were able to not only dramatically scale our one-to-one emails, but also organize all communications - including Salesforce sends and triggered email sends - in one place. We now better understand how and when our customers prefer to engage with our brand."

Wunderkind's technology and white-glove service has already been utilized by more than 70 Salesforce customers, enabling these brands to scale their best-performing emails. Leading online retailers like G-Star Raw®, Clarks®, Rebecca Taylor, Rag & Bone®, Sonos, and Nautica have also seen more than a 4X increase in triggered email revenue through the integration.

InfluencerActive Launches the World’s First Business-to-Business Influencer Marketplace

InfluencerActive | October 06, 2021

Leading Business Influencers with Extensive Networks Join Global Digital Platform to Help Boost Marketing Campaigns of B2B and B2C Brands InfluencerActive, Inc. today announced the global launch of the world’s first business influencer digital marketplace, featuring more than 200 highly networked, leading business influencers for B2B and B2C brands. These influencers are spread across 15 countries in the U.S., Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Europe. The marketplace offers a combined first-level reach of over 20 million people and a network reach of more than 250 million people, numbers that are growing daily as more influencers join the platform. The InfluencerActive digital marketplace is available around the globe. According to Business Insider, the influencer marketing industry will grow to $15 billion by 2022. Additionally, a recent survey conducted by Influencer Marketing Hub shows that 75% of brands said they intend to dedicate a budget to influencer marketing in 2021, and 90% of survey respondents said they believe influencer marketing is an effective form of marketing. “Consumer-oriented social media channels like Instagram, YouTube, and more recently, TikTok, have been generating engagement for some time, while business-focused influencers have largely flown beneath the radar,” said Anthony James, CEO of InfluencerActive. “On sites like LinkedIn and Twitter, business leaders, executives, coaches, and even CEOs have built networks of influence that regularly reach millions of people around the world. But until now, there has been no easy way for B2B brands to engage and activate business influencers.” “The launch of InfluencerActive will change the influencer marketing game for both B2B and B2C brands, particularly with small businesses and medium-sized enterprises,” James continued. “Our focus is on curating a cadre of ‘hyper-networked’ business people – real professionals who have a vested interest in their professional network and the ability to generate high levels of engagement. As a digital marketplace, we have global scope and our influencers have worldwide reach through their networks of influence. In general, our customers don’t engage our influencers for their local expertise but for their regional and international scale.” An Easier Way to Leverage the Power of Influencer Marketing InfluencerActive was founded by CEO Anthony James, who for nearly 30 years, on four continents, has worked with organizations of all types and sizes to learn the art of leadership, influence, and technology disruption. The digital marketplace makes it easy for marketing leaders, brands, and agencies to work with influencers, giving them a direct line of communication and a simple process for integrating them into a campaign to increase awareness and impact. With the InfluencerActive marketplace, B2B and B2C marketers can quickly book an influencer, send the desired media and messaging, and see their content pushed live by the influencer within a matter of hours. "I knew nothing about influencers prior to connecting to InfluencerActive,” said Red Welke, Founder, T-Rex Hammer. “Our first experience with the platform was absolutely mind-blowing. We received hundreds of inquiries almost immediately. The platform delivers amazing value through professional recognition and brand awareness. We will be utilizing InfluencerActive consistently as part of our long-term marketing and growth strategy." “Advertising just doesn’t offer the same value as it once did,” said James. “Sponsored posts simply take the old ‘interruption marketing’ model and apply it to digital news feeds. But people don’t want to be interrupted. They want context, a story, entertainment, and trust. Our influencers are well-positioned to do that, and our platform is the ideal vehicle for making that happen.” The InfluencerActive digital marketplace is available at marketplace.influencer-active.com About InfluencerActive InfluencerActive is an influencer marketing platform that directly connects brands and businesses with curated and vetted business influencers to create a seamless marketplace for both buyer and influencer to engage. Influencers in the InfluencerActive network have built significant followings over traditional business channels such as LinkedIn and Twitter. Their trusted voices are valued in both the B2C and B2B contexts. In engaging with influencers through InfluencerActive, business owners can cut through the channel noise and marketing challenges of a fragmented media world. With Influencer Active, engagement is direct between business and influencer, and there is a cost only if an influencer agrees to engage. For more information, please visit Influencer-Active.com.
