A Toast to Different Types of Clouds in Salesforce

Are you interested in growing your sales? If so, you’re certainly not alone. It’s a core consideration of just about every business, no matter the industry.

That’s one reason why Salesforce is such a popular tool for businesses of all shapes and sizes. With the various Salesforce Clouds, you can manage the entire sales process in one place—from finding customers to closing deals, and everything in between.


The Different Types of Clouds in Salesforce

When getting started with Salesforce, some of the first questions are often “What are Salesforce clouds?” and “How many types of clouds are there in Salesforce?” It can get somewhat overwhelming, especially if you’re walking into the platform without much prior knowledge of it.

The exact number of Salesforce clouds is difficult to answer. A Salesforce cloud is a “loose federation of features that help you accomplish certain types of activities or supporting your customers.” There are several clouds that can benefit a wide range of industries, such as:

  • Sales Cloud
  • Marketing Cloud
  • Financial Services Cloud
  • Service Cloud
  • Commerce Cloud
  • App Cloud

In addition, there are some Salesforce Clouds that are more specialized and geared toward certain industries, such as:

  • Wealth Management
  • Banking
  • Insurance
  • Consumer Goods
  • Retail
  • Travel/Hospitality
  • Nonprofit
  • Government
  • Healthcare
  • Life Sciences
  • Manufacturing
  • Media
  • Communications

Don’t see your specific industry on there? Chances are, you could still benefit from Salesforce in one way or another. Moreover, with such a wide range of products and pricing options, it can truly work for any company, no matter its shape or size.

It is equally ideal for B2C or B2B businesses.

We know how to create smarter, more effective, and targeted Marketing Cloud campaigns. As Salesforce experts, we’ll help you hit the road running with your new marketing tools.
