    Weebly Review: A Worthy WordPress Challenger

  • Telerik Sitefinity Connects with Salesforce.com and Marketo

    Telerik Sitefinity Connects with Salesforce.com and Marketo

    Telerik has announced the availability of Salesforce.com and Marketo connectors for the 70,000 users of its web content management solution, Sitefinity. The release of these connectors come at a time when software vendors and service providers are increasingly supporting the development of websites that offer features in web experience management and visitor personalization. Telerik hopes that with these two products, Sitefinity customers can provide more exacting and personalized customer experiences to their website visitors with "ease, creating more targeted product, messaging and revenue possibilities".

    Static websites typically present the same content regardless of a visitor’s preferences or profile. But today’s visitors expect a personalized online experience that adapts to their behavior. CRM and marketing automation systems capture a full range of interactions that empowers sales to better communicate and engage in a more personalized conversation. But historically, those assets have not come together in a meaningful way.

    Telerik's Eric Odell recently blogged that organizations are increasingly taking a more personalized approach that proactively manages the online user experience and makes relevant information more accessible. He states that, "if you are ready to break out of your static cookie-cutter mold and personalize your website, make certain you select the right web content management platform to help".
