While it sometimes might feel like it, you’re certainly not the only one who’s spent half their time Googling unfamiliar terms and phrases when using a platform like Salesforce Marketing Cloud!

Despite how well you might know the platform, it can be difficult to remember every single word and acronym you come across when using it. Particularly because Marketing Cloud can be quite technical, with its Automation Studio and SQL and Data Extensions.

So, to make your life just that little bit easier, we’ve put together a Salesforce Marketing Cloud Glossary to keep on hand for whenever you need it!

What’s in the Marketing Cloud Glossary?

We know how frustrating it can be when you’re confidently making your way through a task in Marketing Cloud, be it a new email campaign, file automation, or branching into a new module like Journey Builder, and you suddenly feel stumped with an unfamiliar word or acronym.

In our glossary, listed from A-Z, you’ll find a table of common terms - and their definitions - that you’ll likely come across when using Salesforce Marketing Cloud.

The glossary is designed to help decode and simplify the sort of jargon that often trips people up when using the platform, and everything from AMPscript’, Data relationship’ to shortcode’ is included!

Whether you’re a long-time user of the Salesforce platform, or you’re only just starting to get familiar with it, the glossary is useful for all types of marketers - techy’ or not!

By the way, if you think there’s a term we should add to our glossary, feel free to send us a message and we’ll happily do so!

You can download the glossary to your desktop, file it away in your documents folder, or print it out and stick it on your office wall, so the next time you see Relational data model’ or SQL’, you’ll know exactly what it means!

We’ve created this glossary in addition to our Beginner’s Guide to Data Extensions eBook, which you can also download here.
