As customers walk into a retail store, they tend to hold products, see them from various angles, and try them out (depending on the category). When it comes to eCommerce, businesses usually rely on product images to sell, but that doesn’t go far enough to address today’s customer expectations. The good news is that you have options with Salesforce eCommerce integrations.
3D product configurators have started to gain traction as visual content has become essential to smart marketing strategies, and it is vital to think of creative ways to leverage them. The reason is simple—this type of technology is proven to lure consumers and boost sales.
Many businesses rely on Salesforce eCommerce integrations to streamline their marketing efforts across all their platforms – mobile messaging, email campaigns, social media content, website landing pages, and social media ads. Salesforce offers a number of cloud options including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud, Commerce Cloud, and Community Cloud.
Now that all the clouds are integrated, how can you leverage visual assets—including Salesforce product configurators and augmented reality experiences—across them all? Read on to find out.
