Salesforce Experimental Environment

Tonight I completed the marketing cloud badge on Trailhead. I also created my experimental sales force environment. 

I was able to:

  1. Create a new marketing campaign
  2. Create an opportunity within this marketing campaign
  3. Create tasks such as a phone call and follow up meeting to explore this opportunity.
  4. I was able to create a poll of my team regarding what should happen at the meeting.
  5. I was able to report back the results of the meeting
  6. In addition I added two additional users who can now access my salesforce environment with real email addresses.

Salesforce Trailhead, a starting point.

Salesforce trail head is Salesforce’s own free training and certification platform. So far I’ve learned about the marketing cloud and the different skills sets you can obtain and the tracks within them. I’ve also moved part of the way through numerous other modules and have about 500 points so far but only 1 badge.

The marketing cloud platform seems to be tremendously powerful and really leverages the technology and data we have to find the customers we’d like to reach.

An administrator position seems to be the most natural place to enter the platform as a beginner. Moving onto a developer requires more coding but would allow for more remote working opportunities. Certified Technical architects seem to be rare and this job requires years of experience.
