Marketo Delivers Personalized Cross-Channel Engagement
Today’s buyers are more informed and are available on myriad channels, including mobile. The challenge for marketers is to ensure that their personalized brand experiences reach across all channels and connect with buyers. To support marketers in creating personalized cross-channel engagements, Marketo has released several new features, including —
LinkedIn Lead Gen Form Integration
The integration allows marketers to collect high-quality leads on mobile via LinkedIn’s pre-filled forms and sync that data to Marketo. This enables marketers to engage and retarget prospects instantly or alert sales reps to follow up.
Web Personalization Campaign Enhancements
The enhancement provides marketers with flexible customization and triggering functionality to create more tailored website experiences. The new enhancements enable marketers to listen and respond to new customer intent signals, such as scrolling and exit intent, empowering marketers with more control over web campaigns without having to tap IT resources.
Effective Account-Based Engagement
Account-Based Marketing poses certain challenges for sales and marketing teams. It includes managing high volumes of data and understanding customer interactions at an account-level. To address these challenges, Marketo has released several enhancements for their ABM solution, including –
Custom Fields for Named Accounts
The enhancement enables marketers to append and sync account data in Marketo for more precise targeting and personalization.
Percentile Scoring for Named Accounts
Percentile Scoring makes it easy for marketing and sales teams to prioritize accounts to focus on. This is based on scores from multiple inputs, such as behavioral, firmographic, and demographic data.
Account List APIs
This enhancement enables marketers to access and share named account lists with other applications to effectively execute a cross-channel ABM strategy. Marketers can now effectively target accounts through ad networks. Additionally, marketing and sales can harmonize their efforts for the same set of accounts across the buyer’s journey.
Analytics that Demonstrate Impact
Marketers are under scrutiny to demonstrate the business impact of their campaigns. Marketers need access to real-time analytics that prove the success of their various campaigns. Recognizing this need, Marketo has unveiled real-time analytics and key performance indicator monitoring, tailored for marketing executives and their organizations.
