Web3 represents a considerable shift in the ways people meet, organize and build together online. And this has had profound implications in how brands are forging direct relationships with their base—precisely at a time when the need for deeper, privacy-safe insight into audiences has become table stakes.
And now that just got a whole lot easier. Salesforce has just launched Salesforce Web3, with two products: NFT Management and Web3 Connect. NFT Management makes it easy to mint, manage and distribute NFTs through any channel. Web3 Connect helps brands enrich customer profiles with digital wallet and NFT transaction data, effectively joining Web3 data with their existing CRM data ecosystem. Media.Monks will support Salesforce Web3 as an official launch partner, furthering our shared effort to guide industry-leading brands along their Web3 journeys. Here’s how to start your own.
Step into Web3, backed by a trusted technology partner.
Salesforce Web3 helps brands enter the Web3 space through a familiar interface. By easily creating digital collections with NFT Management, brands can reach new customers in Web3 channels while enriching customer relationships—meaning it’s never been easier for heritage brands to extend into Web3 as a new, connected touchpoint to sell, service and market to audiences.
Salesforce Web3 also builds legitimacy by overcoming some of the perceived challenges of Web3, like privacy and security concerns. For example, the platform keeps your data secure with configurable privacy controls and built-in fraud detection. This way, brands and their customers can invest confidently in Web3.
Additionally, brands can leverage Web3 Connect to bridge Web2 and Web3 identities, joining Salesforce's existing data attributes within its Customer 360 ecosystem together with Web3 wallet data. This is key, because Web3 offers a new first-party data set, which brands will increasingly rely on to deliver personalized, omnichannel engagement at scale: wallet and NFT transaction data unlock real-time insights into audiences and channels that help future-proof a brand in a time of new privacy regulations and cookie deprecation.
Build insights and longevity through incredible Web3 experiences.
One of the most important things to understand about Web3 is that it’s more than just NFTs and PFPs: it’s an evolution in the ways people engage with one another and with brands. This calls for a re-evaluation of how brands relate to digital audiences today, as well as a need for new skills to collaborate with them authentically. Our digital experts combine deep cultural understanding of Web3 with longstanding CRM expertise to guide brands and show them the way to authenticity in the space.
A revolution in brand-customer relationships calls for a significant overhaul in ways that brands and people engage.
Based on their experiences with notable early adopters in Web3, our team has shared insights in two foundational thought leadership pieces, published in collaboration with Salesforce. Web3 and the Future of Customer Engagement invites readers to follow the near-future customer journey augmented by a range of Web3 use cases and touchpoints. A follow-up piece, Web3 and the Future of Luxury, goes deep inside an industry that has enthusiastically embraced Web3, showing how a new class of digital entrepreneurs and craftspeople empowered by technology are already transforming brands and business.
It's clear that a successful step into Web3 means more than just dropping an NFT collection and calling it a day. Ranging from discovery, strategy, activation and optimization, we’ve helped brands maximize the impact of Web3 activations across their business—for example by enhancing customer loyalty programs, building immersive experiences in virtual worlds, nurturing emerging communities in channels like Discord, or even launching IRL experiences that bridge the virtual and the real.
The byproduct of building brand love across these touchpoints is a stronger understanding of consumers, as Web3 offers numerous triggers to develop first-party data, from the contents of one’s wallet to the kinds of communities that people choose to invest time, activity or money in. Our experience of future-proofing brands’ data strategies in preparation for the privacy era helps connect the dots between activation and insights that can fuel the business long-term.
Start your Web3 journey now.
From digital experiences that reach new audiences to building up first-party data sets, Web3 is ripe for brands to build longevity and future-proof their business. As a space that is inherently driven by emerging consumer behaviors, meeting new expectations within Web3 relies on understanding how customer relationships and attitudes toward ownership and participation continue to evolve. Brands who can rise to the occasion are ideally suited to the new era—and as a trusted Salesforce Web3 launch partner, we can help get them there. Reach out below to get started on your Web3 journey.
