In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what’s involved in channel orchestration and how to make it work for your business. Stay tuned!
What is channel orchestration?
Channel orchestration is a term that is now revered in the marketing world. Marketers are ecstatic that something as audacious as multiple or cross-channel customer engagements could yield enormous rewards. For the uninitiated, channel orchestration is the art of engaging customers across multiple digital touchpoints or channels.

Smart Connected Customer Experiences
Enter channel orchestration, a marketing strategy that focuses on optimizing a set of related cross-channel interactions that, when combined, form an individualized customer experience rather than delivering standalone campaigns. Simply put, most marketers recognize the importance of being customer-centric rather than campaign-centric.
What matters more than acquiring and analyzing data on customers and potential customers is what you do with that data. Insight-driven businesses assess the impact of applied insights and then optimize in closed-loop, agile cycles of experimentation and learning.
In other words, it’s all hands on deck to disseminate the data and collaborate to learn from it in order to increase campaign and targeting agility.
Marketing orchestration can provide an individualized customer experience while increasing revenue, loyalty, and internal efficiency for the marketer.
Organizing customized customer experiences
Orchestrating personalized customer experiences in real-time across all channels necessitates the ability to dynamically adjust to new opportunities related to individual customers. It means you not only know what has worked in the past, but you also have the systems and infrastructure in place to adapt to new incoming intelligence if past patterns are not the best predictors of the current opportunity.
Companies in this stage benefit from historical knowledge combined with real-time, always-on intelligence and feedback on an individual customer level, as well as the flexibility to adapt at the moment and at the relevant channel to what is best for the customer conversation at hand.
While it may seem impossible to manage and orchestrate so many channels at once, with the right team in place and technology to support them, channel orchestration can be a reality for your organization.
