INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 9, 2013) – Global digital marketing leader ExactTarget, a salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) company, announced today that it won the Facebook® Preferred Marketing Developer Innovation Competition for its latest digital marketing innovation.
Facebook awarded ExactTarget the honor for its forthcoming Active Audiences product, a solution that brings together ExactTarget email marketing with social advertising by Salesforce Social.com to create targeted Facebook advertising based on customer engagement across email, mobile, social and Web.
“In today’s connected world, customers are moving effortlessly between marketing channels to interact with brands before, during and after the buying process,” said Scott McCorkle, president of technology and strategy, Salesforce ExactTarget Marketing Cloud. “Active Audiences will enable marketers to connect with their customers in new ways by optimizing Facebook ad campaigns based on customer interactions.”
When customers interact with a brand across ExactTarget powered email, mobile, social media or websites, Active Audiences will enable marketers to automatically add the customer to a unique audience within Facebook to use in delivering more relevant Facebook advertising.

“Technology and digital techniques are changing the ways marketers design and manage multichannel marketing. The companies that come out on top will find out what motivates buyers, anticipate future customer needs and wants, and create a compelling online experience for customers, and they will do it better than their competitors,” noted Gartner analysts Jennifer Beck and Adam Sarner, in the “Agenda Overview for Multichannel Marketing”, published January 2013.
