I was not involved in the selection process, but the person who is in charge has a long history in digital marketing and chose this product for us based on experience with similar products and feedback from other sister companies. The decision was also influenced by other business parallels such as the integration with our CRM database.

Are you connecting with outside customers or is this internal ? If so, how many? [if very few, then another option may be better].

Will this be an ongoing effort [so we set up rules and automation runs automatically]?

What kind of reporting or outcome are you looking for?

Do you have a team capacity to mange this tool?

Learnings & Advice

A tool like this enables the business to grow and learn so much about customers and how they interact witu certain messaging, timing, etc
One interesting use case we are using Marketo to automate emails for customers who have lapsed in purchasing something they use to on a regular cadence. A call would be ideal, but when u have a lot of small customers accross the globe, email is the best option to be effective.
The way you can modify and use the tool is limitless. It is one of the best Marketing tools you will invest in, not just for emails, but also how it is so much more powerful with CRMs like Salesforce.
Like many other help community, people post best practices and share ideas and post questions. Outside of internal experts, this is the first place to find solutions.
Have some experts who can promote the product.
