Overall Satisfaction with Marketo

Marketo is being used for our sales department from potential clients, to current clients, to expired clients. Marketo allows us to reach so many more prospects and clients without having to babysit the lead. The best feature is that it lets our sales reps know when a lead shows interest in something we've sent them which provides better focus and use of our reps' time.
  • Makreto is like Big Brother - we're able to track our leads movements and activity at all times.
  • Easy campaign set up - creating email is easy!
  • Syncs between CRMs.
  • It would be helpful to see how many emails land in junk mail to get a better analysis of how many people we are reaching.
  • I would like to be able to re-name emails/campaigns - right now, you have to clone and delete.
  • Better one on one help. When I'm lost, I'd find it helpful to speak to MY account manager to run through problems.
  • Upsell
  • Cross-Sell
  • Customer Service
  • Prospecting / New Business
Our purpose is two-fold, we want to bring in NEW business first and foremost and secondly we want to address concerns and questions leads and clients have before they need to ask them. Selling additional sites to a current client is just a bonus!
We have used Salesforce for email marketing in the past, but it does not even come close to what Marketo can do.
Marketo is well suited to nurture leads with very little effort on a sales rep's part - meaning your sales team can focus on their hot leads instead of those who aren't interested. It really helps to funnel our teams work load so they are working on the most important leads at the right times.

I can't think of a specific example at this time.
I have no personally used another marketing automation software.
Smart lists help keep data organized as well as cloning similar campaigns and information to minimize the workload.
