So, what sets Marketing Cloud apart from distributed marketing? In Marketing Cloud, configuring requires administrative privileges and the ability to install packages. In contrast, Distributed Marketing leverages Marketing Cloud journeys and Salesforce campaigns within Sales, Service, Financial Services, and Experience Clouds.

Enter Distributed Marketing from Salesforce. It enables non-marketers to effortlessly inform, market, and sell to their clientele at scale. As consumers seek connected, relevant, and convenient interactions with brands, delivering seamless engagement experiences becomes imperative. However, for organizations operating through extensive partner networks like franchisees, financial advisors, or resellers, ensuring consistent consumer engagement at scale presents a significant challenge.
