Overall Satisfaction with PathFactory
We use PathFactory when we need to spin up microsites for a very specific purpose and don't want to get our web team involved. It allows you to upload PDFs, video webpages, and other content to be housed within a digital "look book." The lookbook can be tailored content specific to your customer or prospect's needs. They can be spun up very quickly using your library of content, and unique URLs can be created and shared easily. We integrate all of this data into Marketo to track engagement.
- Personalized content tracks at scale is incredibly important
- Engagement tracking allows us to attribute pipeline & revenue to individual content tracks
- Time-saving because we cannot rely on our website creation for all of our integrated marketing campaigns
Without the ability to quickly spin up content tracks for individual marketing campaigns, individual prospects, or customers, we wouldn’t be able to meet our campaign goals or needs. These lookbooks allow us to curate the content we need for each campaign or each customer and also track engagement by person, known or unknown.
I wasn't involved in the initial implementation, but the ongoing addition of Marketo Forms and new content (PDF, Video, Webpages, etc.) is very easy. It's totally worth the effort, and I should add that the effort is minimal. We do have a couple of integrations (Google Analytics, Marketo), and those didn't require much work, to my knowledge (as we have a CSM to help us walk through those parts).
Our ability to serve up content based on who is viewing it and in the order we feel it should best be viewed is very impactful on our potential buyers. In addition to helping self-educate potential buyers, it can also be used to help train new customers or existing customers on new features.

PathFactory is great when you want to spin up specific content tracks for specific prospects (or customers). They can be cloned and updated quickly to create personalized experiences while not taking as much time as creating individual websites would in an ABM approach. It doesn't work as well when you're looking for the full functionality of a standard website. You're more or less stuck within the I-frame model. I should mention that they do have the capability to create an "Explorer Page," which is a second way to serve up content, but it's more of a skin over the existing I-frame.
