What is campaign influence?

Salesforce was founded on a simple principle: to help its customers succeed. It offers an entire ecosystem full of amazing solutions to achieve this goal. Salesforce believes that CRM platforms should not only be adaptable and flexible (with countless options and various apps) but also easy to manage.
➡ Salesforce Campaigns is a tool that fully follows this rule. It’s essential for marketers (but can also be leveraged by Sales Development teams). It stores essential performance metrics in one place which helps marketers analyze how many leads they’re generating and how much pipeline they’re able to build with their campaigns.

Campaign Influence 1.0 helps marketers with understanding the return of their campaign investments. Marketers can configure influential campaigns to be automatically added to opportunities.

Customizable Campaign Influence identifies revenue share with standard and custom attribution models that can be updated manually or via automated processes. How do they work? ➡ Influence models scan active campaigns and identify members who are set as a contact on an open opportunity. A model is then responsible for creating a campaign influence record based on that relationship. Users can assign an influence manually (on the opportunity record) or automatically via Apex triggers or the API.

Campaigns are directed towards either existing customers or prospects (including existing and new leads). Marketers can use Salesforce reports to create target lists. Common criteria responsible for segmenting target lists are: location, job title, industry, company name, installed products/services, previous campaign, and response history. What happens if the lead or contact pages don’t include the type of information you need to create the list? You can always create custom lead or contact fields to record this information.

The two primary campaign goals are:

? Lead generation – these types of campaigns include direct mail, email blasts, web seminars, conferences, and trade shows and they usually generate new prospects.
? Brand-building.
