Top Reasons To Choose Dynamics 365 For Marketing
Dynamics 365 for Marketing is one of the newest apps for Dynamics 365. Simply put, Microsoft has made a solution for every marketing team, no matter how big or small the business is. There was a module, but it wasn’t as thorough as it is now. People who have used Dynamics 365 CRM before might say that it already does. The first version of the marketing module was missing some essential parts needed for a marketing department to work. Microsoft decided to improve it by making it a part of Dynamics 365 that is only for marketing.
What is Dynamics 365 for marketing?
Dynamics 365 for Marketing is a powerful marketing app that is part of the Dynamics 365 brand. It gives small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) all the tools they need to run successful marketing campaigns across digital platforms.

Websites and Emails

You can then send an email to all these contacts using trigger rules. Follow-up messages could be scheduled for specific times or interactions. Based on customer actions and knowledge, paths will branch out. The software lets you easily create personalized customer journeys to nurture leads and close sales. Aligning sales and marketing increases productivity and simplifies collaboration within your organization.
