For Oktopost, the next generation of social media is already here as it begins its journey as a partner in Marketo Accelerate program
In the first of this five-part series, we examine how Oktopost’s customers would benefit from joining the Marketo Accelerate Program.
Leading engagement marketing software company, Marketo announced the first set of MarTech partners to join its Marketo Accelerate Program. The partners would empower marketers with the technologies they need to build a best-of-breed marketing platform to listen, learn, and engage with buyers seamlessly across channels. The growing prominence of social media intelligence for B2B commerce has shown marketers how easy it is to manage, measure, and amplify marketing campaigns using social media management platforms. Oktopost, a leading B2B social media management platform, is among the five martech companies who have joined the Marketo Accelerate program.
Gain a 360-Degree View of Lead Journeys across Every Channel
In the first of our five-part series, we spoke to Oktopost CEO, Daniel Kushner, to understand what is in store for the customers who want to use social advocacy and adaptive tools for B2B commerce.
Social conversations are getting smarter and more effective in driving sales. B2B marketers use audience analytics, social engagement, and content metrics to measure what it takes to attract followers and build an ever-growing community. Oktopost provides ‘data portability’, offering marketers unlimited access to social data for analysis that is easy to read, report, and share. This would now be available to the Marketo Accelerate partner community as well!
Daniel said, “The strengthened relationship between Marketo and Oktopost means we can help our customers deliver an engaging, more personalized experience to their prospects and clients. Given the additional layer of social intent data in Marketo, our customers gain a 360-degree view of their lead journeys across every channel, including social media, in order to fuel laser-focused lead attribution, lead nurturing, and lead scoring programs in Marketo.”
Daniel explained, “Through Marketo Accelerate, our customers will be able to understand which content topics made leads click and convert, which campaign this content came from, and who posted the content in the first place. The more behavioral data our customers have on leads, the better they can manage, target, and convert them over time, and across other channels like email and website.”
