Sitecore offers software to help marketing teams with their goals and objectives. As the IT team, this software does not need to be implemented from scratch and your IT Team can build using the tools as provided by the software. Moreover, using Sitecore’s managed cloud offering or SaaS products you don’t need to invest time and resources in the management of the software. Or, if your organization requires certain IT Governance restrictions, you can host and manage the XP and XM software yourselves in your on premises or (private) cloud environments.
Sitecore offers a range of products to use as required tools that you need to implement your marketing strategy & roadmap. The use of Sitecore tooling can grow along with your strategy and roadmap. You can use one of the modules or the full range of modules, depending on your needs.
We are devoted to providing the best possible Sitecore expertise for optimized online communication, customer engagement and customer intelligence.

Sitecore has multiple solutions. There is the all-in-one solution (Sitecore Experience Platform) that includes content management, marketing automation and personalization functionality. And there is the composable SaaS products:
Sitecore Experience Manager & Sitecore Experience Manger Cloud (content management)
Sitecore CDP (customer data platform)
Sitecore Personalize (personalization & multi-variate testing)
Sitecore Send (marketing automation & email marketing)
Sitecore Content Hub (Digital Asset Management)
Sitecore Discover (search and recommendation engine)
Sitecore OrderCloud (commerce engine).
Sitecore offers enterprise level software that is highly customizable upon your needs. Moreover, Sitecore can be setup in a composable way to only use the modules that you need. This is not possible with monoliths, like Kentico Xperience for example.
We often say that using Sitecore for your marketing roadmap is not a project but a program. The foundation and future proof setup can be done in a one-time project and more features can be build along the way, as your marketing or your company grows. As with all software there’s a hosting and maintenance cost, as well as a license cost.
Yes! With Sitecore’s CMS you can build your own landing pages.
Not necessarily. It depends on the functionality you want to implement. If you, for example, want to implement cross-session personalization and analytics there is indeed a cookie that needs to be placed.
Nowadays, Sitecore offers multiple solutions to do personalization:
In the Sitecore Experience Platform, personalization rules are available to setup personalized experiences based on data in the Sitecore Experience Database. In this Experience Database, often referred to as XDB, data about visitors on the platform are available. With personalization rules, data in the XDB can be evaluated to choose which experience to show the visitor (for example, different content in certain components on a web page). Also, if your visitor is identified, you can enrich the data in the Experience Database with explicit data to personalize on even more.
The cost of licenses and hosting highly depends on the solution you envision. Please reach out to discuss what the options are and we can include a Sitecore account executive into the discussion.
Yes! Sitecore offers multiple solutions for emailing:
Sitecore Email Experience Manager is included in the all-in-one Sitecore Experience Platform and can be combined with marketing automation within the same platform
Sitecore Send is a SaaS platform for emailing and marketing automation
Yes, for sure. All modules have the DNA of Sitecore – being extensible and customizable upon your needs.
As with every tool there is a learning curve to use Sitecore. Once the concepts are clear the tools are easy to use and you will like all the possibilities.
For sure, it’s a good starting point to have experience with other Content Management Systems and their concepts.
