Oracle Eloqua is a marketing automation tool developed by Oracle to modernize your marketing strategy using the following methods:
- Improving the targeting of prospects
- Promoting meaningful customer engagement
- Automating campaigns to increase conversion rates
- Using reporting analytics to improve business performance
- Employing marketing technology to simplify business processes
Dynamic Signal integrates with Eloqua for lead attribution. When a new lead completes a landing page form built in Eloqua, Dynamic Signal captures information about the social post, content, and employee who drove the lead to the landing page. This enables your company to easily recognize advocates who used the Dynamic Signal platform to drive the highest conversion rate on the landing page.
The Dynamic Signal process for integrating with Eloqua includes the following steps:
- Set up the Dynamic Signal App
- Add Hidden Fields to your Eloqua Form
- Add Processing Steps to your Form
- Whitelist your Domain in Dynamic Signal
- Create a Post in Dynamic Signal
- Customize Post Details
- Test Eloqua Integration
Before starting your integration process, ensure you are logged on as both an Eloqua Administrator and a Dynamic Signal Manager. You must also have at least five free custom contact fields in Eloqua.
Set Up the Dynamic Signal App

- When prompted, enter the URL of your Dynamic Signal Community and grant Dynamic Signal access to your Eloqua instance.
