What are Destinations?

With Destinations, you can trigger any number of advanced marketing workflows. For instance:

  • Use the Facebook Custom Audience Destination to automatically sync any segment to a Facebook Audience and serve highly targeted ads using Clearbit, intent and SFDC data.
  • Use the Salesforce Destination to notify your account executives when an account with an open opportunity has a spike in traffic.
  • Use the Email Destination to send your sales team a weekly prospecting list of net-new accounts (i.e. accounts not in your CRM) that have hit your site in the last week and fit your ideal customer profile. 
  • Use the Slack Destination to send a notification to your customer success managers when one of their contacts leaves their job.

    • Email - send a scheduled email digest of companies/people matching a segment

    Personalization


    • Custom HTML - Execute custom HTML and JavaScript on your website when a visitor matches a segment 

What are Destination Triggers?

For each Destination, you must configure a Destination Trigger, which is a specific condition that must be met for the notification to appear in your Destination. Example triggers include:

  • On page view - The Destination is triggered on every page view if a person/company matches an audience. This is ideal for real-time intent driven audiences, and is often combined with suppression settings to prevent a flood of notifications.
  • Audience Sync - The Destination is updated to stay in sync with an audience. This is primarily used on Destinations like Facebook Custom Audiences where a person is added to the audience when they enter the audience and is removed when they exit the audience

📝 Please note: Not all Destinations support every trigger type.
