Our friends at www.BedrockData.com recently published this brilliant Marketo Power Users series I wanted to make sure to share.

For this interview series, Zak Pines, VP Marketing at Bedrock Data sat down with the crème de la crème, the best of the best, the who’s who of the Marketo Community and asked them about their Marketo and marketing operations best practices. The results will arm you with the essentials to set up your Marketo as a closed loop marketing machine.

Here are the top takeaways from the interviews:

  1. Define your Lead Lifecycle stages
  2. Tag your Lead sources across the Buyer Journey
  3. Define standards for bringing data into Marketo
  4. Score your leads based on target profile and prospect behavior
  5. Leverage Marketo programs and tokens to scale your operations
  6. Ensure you have a top-notch bi-directional Marketo-CRM integration to stay aligned with sales
  7. Close the loop with feedback from your downstream systems
