How to merge profiles in Audience.

Consolidate profiles across social channels and your CRM systems.

 

The Merge section in Audience enables you to consolidate your customer journey by providing you with a list of suggested candidates to be merged. By merging the candidates, you get a single profile card that accounts for a multitude of interactions throughout your social channels or profiles you discovered via Listen. 

In addition it’s possible to import and synchronize profiles via CSV or via one of our plug and play CRM integrations, currently available with Salesforce, HubSpot, and MS Dynamics. You can also use our Profile API to connect your own system to Audience. 

Our merging algorithm uses attributes such as name, handle and picture similarity to calculate a similarity score. This will enable you to merge your social data to profile data from other tools.

 

STEP-BY-STEP:

1. On the Merge tab within Audience, select the profile you want to merge.

2. The right column will show you all the populated fields of the profile selected. Below the profile you’ll see a list of potential matching profiles.

3. Select the suggested profile(s) you want to add to the main profile card. If you want to make sure that you merge the right profiles, you can expand the information on the merge suggestions or click on the individual profile to review the data.

4. Click on the ‘Merge’ button to finalize your choice.

Once the merge is complete, you will have the possibility to Continue Merging or View Profile.

 

Hot Tips:
You can also merge profiles straight from the profile card in Engage (read more about that here).

Whenever you hover over the similarity score, you can see how and on what attributes our algorithms evaluate the the merge candidates.
