LET’S GET HACKING! #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 6

Hack #1: Think Like an Engineer •  Marketo is programming with a graphical interface •  Marketo is a logic machine — who/what/when + if/then/else •  Marketo gives you complete flexibility: you can create something awesome OR build a fragile, unscalable system •  Architecture matters! #MAHacks @uberflip Credit: Isaac Wyatt, New Relic!

Slide 7

Analogy: Pre-Fabricated vs. Design/Build vs #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 8

Start with Process •  Your MA system should be designed around your Revenue Funnel •  How does a lead become a deal? Where do leads enter the system? Major milestones? Interactions with sales? #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 9

Build for Scale and Flexibility •  Define operational systems to manage centralized functions •  Don’t duplicate triggers - one “controller” can request all related steps •  What processes can be asynchronous? Which are dependent? Define a critical path •  Consolidate logic into a single place •  Make it intuitive - function should be visible from glancing at the tree #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 10

Hack #2: Template and Tokenize for Fast Deployment •  Each marketing program = a distinct marketing initiative •  Goal: standardize programs and deploy them as quickly as possible •  E.g., 10 minutes for a new webinar, new gated white paper, etc. •  Standardized format ensures good data and good reporting #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 11

Use a Cascading Token Framework •  Universal tokens defined at the top level of the tree •  Additional tokens at the folder level •  More just at the program level •  New tokens = more overhead; re-use tokens as much as possible •  Use the right token types (text. vs. rich text) •  Bonus! See the resources for a webinar checklist #MAHacks @uberflip Universal Level: {{my.CompanyName}}, {{my.CopyrightYear}}, {{my.UniversalHeader}}, {{my.GlobalCSS}}, etc.! Folder Level: {{my.PresenterName}}, {{my.PresenterBio}}, {{my.FolderCSS}}, etc.! Program Level: {{my.PresenterName}}, {{my.PresenterBio}}, {{my.WebinarDate}}, {{my.ProgramCSS}}, etc.!

Slide 12

No More Editing Assets •  Clone a program, populate tokens, and away you go •  Assets update dynamically (no slow approvals) •  Mix program and lead tokens to combine personalization with program-specific content #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 13

Hack #3: Fun with Trigger Tokens •  Trigger tokens, a.k.a. “Tokens for Interesting Moments” have many cool uses •  E.g., “Last form completed”, “First landing page converted”, “Last email clicked” •  Useful for routing and centralization — e.g., if last form completed = x, send alert y •  Useful for attribution — e.g., capture last email clicked before MQL, before Oppty #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 14

Hack #4: Token Concatenation •  Instead of saving only “first” or “last” values, concatenation allows you to keep “all” data value changes •  Use a “last touch” field plus a canonical/ historical field •  Change data value: canonical field = {{last touch field}}, {{canonical field}} •  Use “contains” filters to report •  Time-stamp optional “@{{system.date}}: {{lead.Utm Source}}, 
 {{lead.Utm Source Historical}}” “@06/15/2015: Google Adwords, @03/22/2015: LinkedIn, @09/05/2014: Twitter, @09/01/2015: Partner Webinar…..” #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 15

Hack #5: Use Segmentations for Complex Logic •  Whenever you want to “bucket” someone (e.g. Lead Source, Persona) Segmentations are a good choice •  Contain complex logic in a centralized place •  Segment changes are triggered off of Change Data Value, like “dynamic static lists” — faster than smart lists •  Limitation: no behavioural filters •  Work around: use “Member of List” filter (bonus hack!) #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 16

Hack #6: Save those URL Parameters •  URL parameters: the lifeblood of your campaign attribution •  What happens when leads don’t convert on the first page? •  Save those parameters to cookies! •  Deploy javascript code on your website •  Modify forms to include hidden fields pulling values from cookies •  Cookies persist even if the lead leaves your site and returns later •  Code from Marketo support https://nation.marketo.com/docs/DOC-1101 #MAHacks @uberflip

Slide 17

Hack #7: Dead Man’s Switch •  Triggers are inherently positive - they react when something happens •  But sometimes it’s just as important to react to what leads don’t do •  Solution: Dead Man’s Switch •  Simple three-part formula with many applications •  E.g, create task if opportunity is NOT updated, send alert if NO web page activity, request special campaign if NO engagement, etc. #MAHacks @uberflip screenshot of last form tokens !

Slide 18

Part 1: Reset Campaign •  Contains a trigger for a specified action •  Remove from “Wait Step” campaign, then request it again, resetting the wait period •  Restrict qualification rules to once per day to avoid race conditions #MAHacks @uberflip screenshot of last form tokens !

Slide 19

Part 2: Wait Campaign •  Request-able trigger •  Waits for x days (hours, months, etc.) •  Then requests action campaign #MAHacks @uberflip screenshot of last form tokens !

Slide 20

Part 3: Action Campaign •  Request-able trigger •  Performs desired action (create task, send alert, assign program membership, etc.) #MAHacks @uberflip screenshot of last form tokens !
