Oktopost + Dynamics 365
Today, B2B decision-makers are spending a lot of time on social media, engaging with the companies they work with and the products they use. Modern digital transformation calls to factor these social interactions into customer experience strategies: social data can help improve how B2B organizations market, sell, and support their products.
By connecting Oktopost with Dynamics 365, marketing and sales professionals can improve customer experiences, personalize sales conversations, and streamline social media attribution, making an impact across the entire organization. Adding social data to Dynamics 365 allows marketers to personalize customer interactions, uncover blind spots in the buyer's journey, and report on how social media impacts sales opportunities.
