Well suited for vast business needs, Less suitable when planning for small limited business requirements. However, if the business is vast & the business requirements become vast, its easy to comprehend with Amazon Personalize, as most of the functions would be pre-built & as users, we can customize to our needs to meet business demands.

Marketo RTP is great for companies in later stages that require greater customization or API integrations with their own marketing/sales tools. The integration with Salesforce also makes it worthwhile for companies that already have Salesforce setup in some workflows. As stated before, Marketo is quite expensive, so it might not be suitable for earlier-stage companies and startups that are just getting started with marketing and sales.

We actually had a very good onboarding process. The rep from Marketo was very knowledgable and set up regular meetings with us to make sure we understood how to use everything. He gave us ideas for potential personalizations and had best-practice tips. Unfortunately, his knowledge was not enough to overcome some of the biggest issues with the solution.

I'm well-versed in
's RTP module and
's smart content offering, and
's smart content has ultimately become my personalization tool of choice. Here's why:
HubSpot's smart content tools are simple to grasp and easy to implement from start to finish. There's a lot of room for improvement when it comes to ease of use and overall user experience within Marketo's RTP module. For less tech-savvy marketers, HubSpot's training documentation and support team is an absolute lifesaver. Marketo has failed us time and time again on this front, despite the fact that we pay an additional fee for Premier Support and quarterly consulting. Marketo's tool is more robust and more powerful, but they don't take the time to create supporting documentation to help end-users leverage RTP, nor do they take the time to train their support staff on how it works. HubSpot's smart content does what we need it to do, and we don't burn time in the process trying to figure out how to use it.
