The collection of AI-powered features for Pardot marketing automation is known as Pardot Einstein. We can say Pardot Einstein collectively brings AI and machine learning to B2B marketing. It covers AI features coming through Salesforce and Pardot. This feature collection includes Einstein Attribution, Einstein Campaign Insights, Einstein Lead Scoring, and Einstein Behaviour Scoring. The leading goal of this technology is to find deeply buried patterns in engagement data and recognise themes & take actions like making recommendations to users.
Pardot Einstein takes data from Pardot marketing and then in-build fresh stops. It’s mind-blowing, how a couple of features (Einstein Behavior Scoring, Einstein Lead Scoring) are enhancing existing functionality. On the other side, Einstein Campaign Insights and Einstein Attribution are introducing entirely new concepts. We can say, it’s a natural progression from rules-based to AI-based functionality. However, all four features are essential for business future planning.
According to Alon Shov (Product Manager at Salesforce Pardot): “AI-enabled features work below the hood for laymen.” In this article, we will discuss all 4 Products with their latest updates.
4 Products of Pardot Einstein
1. Einstein Behavior Scoring
Einstein Behavior Scoring is a Pardot Einstein feature that looks at a prospect’s engagement in terms of ‘ready to buy’ behaviour. Over time, the Einstein ‘engagement model’ learns what patterns of marketing touchpoints lead to a purchase, and when it spots these positive insights with other prospects, increases their score too.
For this, Einstein takes the help of prospect’s activity in Pardot such as form submission and link clicking. The behaviour of prospects shows their interest in your marketing efforts.
Breaking it in two parts
- Pattern of engagement
- Buying signals
What does it perform?
- Check each prospect of and Pardot activities such as engagement history.
- Identify the activities to list the positive and negative signals.
- Trains a machine learning model that scores each prospect based through the probability of conversion.
- Rank each prospect 0 to100 accordingly how they compare to all other prospects in your database.
2. Einstein Lead Scoring
It analyses all historical filed data and reveals top factors to determine whether lead converts to a sale or not. This Score leads according to how they fit in your successful conversation pattern.
(This feature is available in Sales Cloud Einstein and not unique to Pardot customers.)
What does it perform?
- Look at each lead and their field data, both custom and standard.
- Identify field data (If it’s a positive signal or negative)
- Trains a machine learning model that scores each lead based through the probability of conversion
- Rank each lead 0 to100 accordingly how they compare to all other prospects in your database.
3. Einstein Campaign Insights
It helps marketers to understand the working factors without manually sifting through and cross-reference. For example, which geographical region and persona are most engaging.
It also analyzes the entire marketing asset dataset e.g compares specific campaign email engagements with all organisation background emails stored. It shares your campaign prospects into segments such as job title, account industry, country – and describes differences between them.
Other than that, It gives marketers real-time AI-driven insights to determine campaign performance. These insights can be used to optimise overtime of the campaign, analyse which campaigns are performing well or not, so you can uncover the new audience for the future.
It asks for two questions:
- What is vital in this prospecting activity in this particular campaign V.s all other campaigns?
- In terms of engagement patterns, which is the most workable segment within a specific campaign?
What does it perform?
- Analyzes prospects engagement activity with different marketing assets.
- Examine key Prospects’ attributes such as job title, location and company industry.
- Check for anomalies, both positive and negative, in the engagement data.
- Covers the most meaningful ones in the shape of Campaign Insights
4. Einstein Attribution
This Einstein feature takes the campaign models to the next level, which use machine learning. It collectively uses the actual and historical campaign performance and more accurately identifies the most effective campaign.
It’s a rule-based influence model, which you might be familiar with as a first touch/ last touch/ even touch Campaign influence model. This model relies on data relationship and timing that has the aim to get one step closer to accurate attribution.
What does it perform?
- It will take you one step closer to the holy grail of accurate marketing attribution, by picking up gaps in attribution.
- By using an AI data-driven model that “attributes revenue share based on your actual customers, their engagement, and your successes”.

Does Einstein Attribution differ from Campaign Influence?
Yes, it is! As in the past, Salesforce and Pardot offer a rule-based attribution model. And use Predefined formula & Conversion credits. Even in the case of Customized Campaign influence, you required sales and marketing users to get an educated guess on how influential the campaign.
However, Einstein Attribution is a more sophisticated algorithm model. It has a scientific approach and provides accurate prediction via historical data and AI-driven models. It gives dynamic insights to both marketing and sales users.
At last, it can be said that the ultimate goal of Pardot Einstein is to find patterns in engagement data. Each product of Pardot Einstein has its features to make the process more efficient and accurate.
