What is Sales Insights?
This is a way for sales and marketing teams to easily leverage account engagement data to prioritize and personalize outreach to the hottest accounts.
Sales Insights delivers account-level data on website engagement, Engagement spike alerts, digital advertising activity, and account list membership from the Terminus ABM platform into Salesforce. With this data sales teams can:
- See how marketing is driving engagement via Terminus account-based advertising
- Get a clear signal when an account is actively researching their offering
- Personalize outreach based on an account’s browsing behavior
- Enable marketing & sales to work off of the same list of accounts, and drive deeper alignment
Unlike alerts from marketing automation, Sales Insights aggregates engagement at the account level from anonymous web traffic, allowing salespeople to identify engaged accounts earlier. Sales Insights uses algorithmic account engagement scoring to alert sales when an account is actively researching your solution.

- We push real time-data daily, no historical pushback.
- This package is unmanaged by Terminus.

How much of the Static Resources storage will be used?
- 350Kb for that hot hot pepper image
Is the Terminus Sales Insights package is unmanaged?
- Yes, it is unmanaged.
- No; your Ad Experiences instance must be integrated with Salesforce for data to push back to the Sales Insights package.
How frequently is this data updated?
- Web visit fields will update daily
- Engagement spike fields will update weekly
- Advertising fields will update daily
- Account list fields will update daily; it may take up to 24 hours to see new account list membership in SFDC
Can I still push data back to Salesforce for advertising accounts that were uploaded using a .CSV list?
- In order to push data back to the Sales Insights package, your instances of Terminus Data Studio and/or Terminus Ad Experiences must be integrated with Salesforce. If an advertising tactic is submitted using a static .CSV list as the audience source, it may still be possible to push data back into Salesforce. This is possible, if:
- The account in your .CSV list has been targeted in a Terminus tactic using a Salesforce audience previously
- AND the name of the account in the list matches the name in Salesforce EXACTLY (no types, hyphens, extra spaces, etc.)
