What is Adobe Marketo Engage?

Adobe Marketo Engage, from Adobe since 2018, aims to help marketing teams drive demand and growth in their companies by delivering exceptional experiences in concert with sales at every stage of the customer journey.

The challenge these teams face is that everyone today expects a personalized experience whenever they interact with a company - they don’t have patience for generic marketing and the last thing they want is a cold call from sales. So to stay competitive, marketing teams are scrambling to understand customers better, so they can give them a better experience, because this is disrupting entire industries. And a big part of what’s needed is figuring out how marketing and sales can do a better job together.

Adobe Marketo Engage aims to redefine Marketing Automation by helping these companies bring together the customer data, content, automation and analytics needed for marketing and sales to coordinate engagement with customers that’s personalized and measurable at every touchpoint - and do it with efficiency and scale.

We utilize Adobe Marketo Engage as our full marketing automation platform, we utilize it in the following activities: <br><br><ul><li>Direct emails</li><li>Live event registration page and promotion</li><li>Webinar registration and promotion</li><li>Smart list creation</li><li>Syncing marketing qualified leads to Salesforce </li></ul>And more that I am not involved in.
  • Providing highly customizable workflows for leads
  • Easy to use email A/B testing
  • Customizable tokens to use in one or many campaigns
  • User interface could be updated
  • Email and landing page customizability
  • Identifying commonly used fields to build smart lists
I have found Marketo Engage is best for one to many communications to large lists. If you do not have established marketing practices and a large list size, it may not be the right fit for you. If you do have a large list size and ample marketing team, it is an excellent way to reach those folks in an impactful (and measurable) way.

Marketo makes it easy to build an effective lead nurturing and scoring engine. Rather than pushing unqualified leads to sales, you can nurture them through Marketo and engage sales when the prospect is ready based on their online behavior. In addition to providing a strong product, Marketo has built a strong user community and enables marketing teams to tap into best practices and knowledge from peer companies.
  • Lead scoring
  • Campaign management
  • Email management
Once the customizations are down you will be very satisfied with your version of Marketo. I highly recommend implementing this into your organization. It's harder to import files than it should be, and the reporting is seriously lame in my opinion.

Our company's income and expansion are fueled by Adobe Marketo Engage. Because Adobe Marketo Engage makes it simple to oversee our email marketing campaigns, and because their excellent email editor enables us to make AI-powered, interactive emails whenever and wherever we choose. Additionally, with Adobe Marketo Engage, we can effortlessly include AI into our chatbot responses, facilitating simpler communication with a larger audience and ultimately increasing customer conversion rates. You can see all the statistics, including the email click rate and the email open rate, on the fantastic dashboard that is accessible from both desktop and mobile devices.
  • Competitive pricing and 4 tiers are available so almost everyone can afford them.
  • Their app is compatible with every OS and is frequently updated.
  • Support is very reliable and polite.
  • Even though it is easy to use, getting used to it might take some time.
  • Apart from that, it is a great marketing automation tool.
Creating and managing emails was always time consuming and tedious but now with Adobe Marketo Engage, we can easily create and manage all our emails and we can also easily see all the email statistics like email opening and click rate from the app dashboard.

It is currently being used by the services and marketing department. Specifically, we use it for event management, lead management, and email marketing.
  • Metrics. I'd like to be able to more easily dig deeper into the granular data (i.e. click rates for a specific link within an email without having to export the csv file)
  • Better reporting
Engagement campaigns are great. I can create a chain of emails to go out and include A/B testing.

Marketo Engage is our enterprise-wide Marketing Automation Platform. I utilize it on a daily basis to send branded emails to various segments of our contact database, create and facilitate webinar smart campaigns, design and manage landing pages integrated into our company website, engage in database cleanup initiatives, and run analytics across multiple marketing KPIs.
  • Design Studio provides a easy-to-use and highly customizable platform for the creation of unique landing pages, emails, and other branded assets.
  • Smart Campaigns make it easy to build and batch campaigns, manage, nurture, and score contacts, and automate several marketing processes
  • Analytics allow you to analyze the performance of multiple Programs and engagement streams in relation to each other
  • Analytics are comprehensive but the ease of use is lacking. There is a strong learning curve for new users or those new to the Adobe product ecosystem.
  • User experience of sorting through Smart Lists and customizing field + column layout is a bit clunky
  • It can be difficult to track form submissions by individual at an aggregate level.
Marketo is a very comprehensive option for enterprise-grade marketing automation. It provides a platform for a mature organization to create and manage large-scale multivariant campaigns across multiple segments of their contact database, and then extract meaningful engagement data insights that can be easily applied to future campaigns. That said, it's a complex system that maybe isn't well-suited for smaller organizations that are looking for a streamlined tool that can be administrated by a team without much marketing automation experience.

I find Adobe Marketo Engage to be a great marketing automation tool for our product launches as it helps us increase both our efficiency and profitability. It simplifies our email marketing by using automation and AI and helps us engage with customers more effectively. Also administrating all the landing pages and the running ad campaigns have become much more easier with the help of Adobe Marketo Engage.
  • Provides real time updates to contacts information for marketing and sales teams.
  • Serves well in the billing department for fully automating electronic bill sending.
  • Offers an intuitive email editor and dynamic content options.
  • Overall a good product.
  • Support is slow to respond to technical issues.
  • Should improve their support response time.
  • Learning Marketo can be challenging, but their vast resources and documentation does make the process easier.
There are a few other marketing automation tool similar to Marketo but what makes Marketo apart from them is how simple and yet how powerful Marketo is. It helps us manage all our landing pages and ad campaigns without much effort and it also has an email editor, with which we can easily create engaging email content.

Customer Relationships Management tool through which our entire business sends all of its global marketing emails, across every single region (EMEA to APAC to AMERS). It has our lead management model within this, so that we can track and report on all email marketing and how this directly relates to leads and opportunities - we have integrations in place therefore with Salesforce and Netsuite and PowerBI. Our primary users are the Marketing Operations Team who are based in Romania, but we also have seats and access for several regional marketeers who are able to then create emails within Adobe Marketo Engage themselves and track the reporting. We do a lot of sophisticated audience segmentation within the platform.
  • Audience segmentation
  • List building
  • Email marketing
  • Lead score model development
  • Integration with Salesforce
  • Overall user interface more modern
  • Better ways to link to folders/collaborate
  • Better email marketing templates within tool
I would definitely recommend Adobe Marketo Engage to other large or medium organisations such as ourselves, who have a number of users from different offices around the globe. It is well suited to those who have large email marketing contact databases and need to do sophisticated segmentation. It has a lot of functionality for integration with Salesforce and lead scoring models.

Adobe Marketo Engage makes it easy to do all the thinking ahead of time so that our marketing campaign's launch and other related workflows go smoothly. It's easy enough for any skill level to use. Adobe Experience League has a vast library of content and documentation, and lets us connect with a community of our peers.
  • Customer journey management needs tools that can visualize what's going to happen at every step. Thanks to Marketo Engage we can flat out every stage, channel and touchpoint to craft powerful experiences from acquisition to revenue.
  • It's automated account based marketing & account profiling narrows down our choices to the best accounts & leads.
  • With 'Smart Campaigns', it's easy to connect with customers when, where & how they want. Another major time saver is the web personalization feature which helps us be consistent and relevant across all the segments and touchpoints.
  • We encounter different types of error messages in Marketo Engage that are hard to remove.
  • Errors arise due to various conditions such as a misspelled campaign name in a flow step or an unintended result. Adobe should work on some notifications that help us locate the source of such errors quickly.
  • The tutorial popup cards don't help at all it's better to keep everything in the videos only.
Marketo Engage offers cutting edge technology that helps us plan, engage and personalize customer's journey. Customizable dashboards help 'Marketing' see sales engagement data & helps 'Sales' see actionable marketing engagement insights. For face to face customer interactions and live events it has specialized tools to plan, scale & market events so that we can hit the attendance numbers.
The software is expensive & irrelevant for teams that aren't involved with customer experience.

Lead management, campaign programming, marketing automation, analytics, database management, and operational programming.
  • Program automation (templates, duplication, tokens)
  • Lead Management tracking
  • Lead Nurturing
  • SFDC integration, sync and field management
  • Event partner integration
  • Event Calendar token - not enough features
  • Lack of OOB landing page and email templates customization features
  • Lack of SFDC analytic integrations and reporting
  • Lack of design marketing and branding features
Adobe Marketing Engage is appropriate for sales organization to scale their marketing operations. It's less appropriate for retail organizations that focus more on online branding, commerce site analytics and less on membership and nurture programs.

We use Adobe Marketo Engage for all business email correspondence to nurture and store leads. There is a bi-directional sync with Dynamics which allows real-time updates to contacts' information for the marketing and sales teams.

Adobe Marketo Engage easily allows us to pull in data from many sources so we can segment the leads based on product or solution interest.

As the majority of our sales are B2B, we don't have a very predictable buying cycle. Adobe Marketo Engage enables me to create intricate nurture flows to track our buyers journey.
  • Adobe Marketo Engage is a great platform for custom email design. The user interface is simple and easy to navigate.
  • With Campaign Optimization, Adobe Marketo Engage allows for real-time adjustments, ensuring my campaigns remain relevant and effective.
  • With Advanced Analytics, Adobe Marketo Engage provides robust marketing data analysis, helping us better understand our campaigns' effectiveness.
  • Adobe Marketo Engage crashes a lot or freezes. We don't have many users and less than 300k contacts so there's no reason it should ever crash.
  • It's really expensive! It would be nice to pick which features we want a la cart versus being stuck paying more for a feature and not using the others in the package.
  • Because of our integration with Dynamics, we had to use a 3rd party tool called Scribe for field matching. No one at Adobe will help us now that we have a 3rd party tool
Adobe Marketo Engage is great for lead gen because of the out of box solutions. We import leads from Google, LinkedIn, Meta, Tradeshows, and web forms. It allows me to track leads from the moment they enter the system to the point where they become customers. I use it to score leads, segment them, and nurture them with targeted content.

It's especially useful as a B2B organization.

Adobe Marketo Engage manages marketing programs efficiently. Adobe Marketo Engage focuses on email marketing. It stands out since it supplies a straghtforward means to monitor the introduction of new goods, locate prospetive consumers, and reach them. However, integrating an CRM improves productivity and guarantees perfect client information administration.
  • It doesn't need any extra third-party platforms to handle basic lead routing automation.
  • You have complete control over the details of your campaign.
  • The software's layout exudes simplicity.
  • Sometimes it lags.
  • More complicated setup and disorganization of lists.
It is suitable for complex features like as opt-in, data management, lead scoring, and lead lifecycle setup. It takes an excessive amount of time to process lists, smart campaigns, or segments. Also for more spontaneous email campaigns, I rely on Adobe Marketo Engage, which is great for organization. Once we started using Marketo for our marketing automation, we noticed an increase in the number of potential leads.

Marketo saves time for huge enterprises and sales teams with low converting lead databases. System navigation is simple due to its straightforward design. Marketo is a great SalesForce widget. This makes the seller ready for the initial call and enhances success odds.
  • Almost limitless possibilities for campaign automation.
  • Sequential and event based marketing.
  • Strong anti spam safeguards.
  • It's agonizingly slow to use at times.
  • The UI is in dire need of a refresh.
  • Requires exhaustive training.
Adobe Marketo Engage helps you locate hiring companies and prospects. And as it saves time, we utilize it often. Also the ultimate goal is to maximize Adobe Marketo Engage's technologies to increase prospect awareness and interest. However, smaller organizations, especially those starting with rudimentary automation, shouldn't buy it due to its expensive price.

We measure email openers, clicks, and video views so sales can follow up with prospects based on lead score and content consumption. Also the straightforward UI, filtering tools and data management make automating lead scoring, lifecycle management, customer journey mapping, and email marketing easy.
  • Its user behavior tracking is excellent.
  • Complex dataset allow for intriguing data models.
  • It makes email marketing easier to set up and analyze.
  • The spam leads and reasons provided are extremely lacking in detail.
  • Must be set up by a platform expert.
  • Icons desperately need updating immediately.
Marketo excels in closed loop marketing and sales reporting, lead management and detailed tracking. And through the use of a/b testing you may determind based on your preferences, which email format performs better. Also in terms of lead data collection, Adobe Marketo Engage forms are second to none and very easy to use.

I use Marketo for our global company and across the organization. It solves CRM business requirements as well as personalization. We manage a lean marketing team and run campaigns using Marketo on a global scale. We can fully grow within the Marketo system and continue to segment and personalize and scale.
  • Trigger campaigns
  • Personalized content
  • Metrics and analytics
  • Salesforce integration
  • API integrations

Full-scale business and marketing applications and setting up channels to measure marketing activities. I think Marketo is a great ecosystem addition that can be integrated with different platforms. For example, Slack integrations, Zapier integrations, CRM Salesforce, RTP, ABM, and MPI new features and email deliver-ability options all are available and ready to implement.

Using Adobe Marketo Engage for everyday outreach. We are automating our sales team outreach and managing website forms through it, apart from the usual outreach. Webhooks are a blessing. It's awesome that you can create landing pages within Adobe Marketo Engage and have them, forms and flows under the same roof. It gives great flexibility and helps a lot with the work.
  • Complex flows
  • Form management
  • Data value change based triggers
  • I'd like to see Adobe Marketo Engage provide updated ready to use templates for emails and LPs
  • AI would be a wonderful addition to their offerings
  • Better account management
Adobe Marketo Engage is a wonderful tool for basic and for complex outreach. Its batch and trigger smart campaigns give great flexibility on achieving your goals. Automating the sales outreach is useful, however, I wish Adobe Marketo Engage could offer some sort of inbox for receiving messages that users can use via custom flows for automatic detection of next actions. Probably this will come once AI is introduced. One can only help.

As a Adobe Marketo Engage Admin, I work with campaign mangers to deploy marketing campaigns, send MQLs to SFDC, reporting, and daily operational tasks and projects.
  • Useful for many use cases
  • Updated constantly
  • A lot of functionality and integrations
  • Bot filtering
  • email templates could be more dynamic
Adobe Marketo Engage is a very manual tool which allows for extremely detailed customization but in my opinion, also creates a large space for error. I think reporting could be a little better in terms of data integrality with bot filtering. I do like how creative one can be with smart lists in order to get the exact criteria wanted. I think for Dynamic chat I wish the audience criteria enabled more along with reusable blocks for dialogues.

Our customer database is really huge and that's why we engaged AAdobe Marketo Engage to help us with our marketing efforts. It gives us a foolproof way of understanding our audience interactions, giving us the power to hit custom touch-points of our audiences like season, gender, type etc. while running campaigns.
  • No software comes close to Adobe Marketo Engage when it comes to analyzing user interactions
  • The A/B tests are easy and properly optimized.
  • The data models are quite intriguing
  • It took me while to grasp the analytics set-up
  • While targeting is great, there are limitations on the things you can target in the email flow
From my experience and the way I see it, Adobe Marketo Engage is only suitable for people and teams with large dataset. It will surely be an overkill if your audience size is in the hundreds

As the CMO at our construction company, I have leveraged Adobe Marketo Engage to automate and enhance our marketing efforts. One of our primary problem that it addresses, is generating and managing leads. We use the platform to capture leads through various channels, Our website, FB, Instagram, and email campaigns.

It helps us ensure that we are targeting clients who are genuinely interested in our construction services and book appointments.

  • We can create workflows to track leads depending on lead behavior and how they respond to our emails or automated messages.
  • Its segmentation tools allows us to divide our leads into distinct categories, like by project type, location enabling us to send hyper-targeted messages.
  • It has simplified our A/B tests on our email campaigns processes by allowing us to set up and analyze A/B within the platform
  • Cost
  • It could offer more advanced content personalization options. For instance, the ability to dynamically generate content blocks within emails or landing pages based on a lead's specific interests or past interactions would take personalization to the next level

Adobe Marketo Engage is the software we use to do our Marketing Attribution Model for more than four years and we have learned a lot from it. Everyday we capture thousands of touchpoints (how our users interact with our campaigns, emails, website, etc) and we can create a very cool customer journeys.
  • Custom weights percentage to the key touchpoints
  • The datasets have a high level of complexity allowing to creating very interesting data models.
  • Integration with Salesforce
  • There can only be a handful of touchpoints so your funnel can't and be more creative in order to adapt to the ever changing business needs
  • In my experience, customer service takes a bit of time to answer
  • In my opinion, the website is very old-school, not in a very engaging way. A better design with go a long way.
Adobe Marketo Engage is a great software if you have a database with millions of users and want to fully understand how they interact with your Marketing efforts. They provide a solid way to weight those interactions but if you want to build custom touchpoints, you might need to manipulate the existing ones in a database.
