If you spend significant time building in Marketo, you will very likely encounter scenarios where things don’t happen the way you’d expect. For example, you may have two different Smart Campaigns - which are perfectly functional - but produce an undesired result because they didn’t execute in the right order. Chances are, your issues are due to the...
If you communicate with a global audience, formatting dates in a way that’s appropriate for the recipient’s language and location can be a big challenge.

Although the world around us seems to be changing on a near-daily basis, this year’s Marketo Engage feature announcements at Adobe Summit have strong continuity with announcements from last year. My overall impression: this is a focused and thoughtful plan, with a good mix of improvements to existing features and new innovations. Highlights: Accoun

The topic sparks an interesting discussion. Of co
Attribution tools are to a marketer what a compass is to a hiker—both provide direction in your journey and guide your next steps. We’re familiar with current Marketo compasses but now Marketo has embedded a new GPS: Bizible. How does Bizible compare to the Marketo compass you’re currently using, and more importantly, how will it impact your daily
If there’s one area marketers get hung up on more often than not, it’s reporting and attribution. From technology limitations to a lack of knowledge to an overwhelming amount of data, understanding contribution to revenue is (arguably) a marketer’s most challenging feat. For those of you nodding your head, Marketo also understands your pain. In fac

Do you want to send a different message to someone if they email you during business hours or after hours? What about on the weekend? Should leads be routed to a different sales team based on the time of an inquiry? What about segmenting leads based on dayparting or day-of-week?
