Marketo University

In today’s digital world, where professionals share everything online, paper certificates no longer provide the same level of value. Marketo has partnered with Accredible to solve this problem.

 

What is a Digital Badge?

Marketo has included digital badges as an additional way for you to share and validate your Marketo certification achievements. A digital badge consists of an image and metadata that are uniquely linked to you. Together, they serve as a compelling digital showcase of your certification achievements: Clicking on your digital badge grants immediate access to validated information that features your knowledge and skills. This allows you to easily share your credentials, and employers and colleagues to easily verify them.

Use Your Marketo badge to:

  • Showcase your certifications and skillset to your professional network
  • Enable your employers to quickly validate your skills
  • Share your digital credentials on any online platform: social media, email signature, resume, website, online portfolio and more

 

How do I share my badge?

Are you interested in advancing your career and earning a Marketo Certification? We asked Marketo Certified Experts what motivated them to get certified, and how it has impacted their career.

 

From Veronica Lazarovici, Marketing Automation Manager at Hotelbeds Group:

I was introduced to Marketo by my manager, and I could immediately see the opportunity. Being an MCE has opened the door to many opportunities. One of the top ones- being part of impactful projects that bring immediate value to the organization. After getting certified and working hands-on with Marketo for a couple of years, I was given the opportunity to move abroad to Spain and pursue a career in a large company.

 

From Josh Gilchrist, Marketing Automation Canada:

At the time, most of our clients and perspective clients were requesting MCE’s. Being certified has allowed me to participate in larger projects with more complex instances, it’s also been a factor in getting job offers.

 

From Kristina Schroffel, Sr. Marketing Technologist at DigitalGlobe:

I wanted to expand my knowledge in Marketo with an accredited certification. I also wanted to prove my proficiency after using Marketo for five years. After becoming certified, I received a promotion at my current company with a pay increase, as well as receiving more recognition from others on LinkedIn.

Marketo Certifications allows marketers to distinguish themselves to current and potential employers. Join in the discussion section below to let us know: how has earning a Marketo Certification helped your career?
