Hey everyone!


I'm new to the user group - nice to "meet" you all!  I wanted to let everyone know we are hiring at Solomon Solution, a relationship design agency based in Seattle, WA.  We are a growing consulting company with key fortune 100 clients and expanding.  Our team works from home most of the time (and three of us live in other cities - KC, SLC and Austin) and employees enjoy unlimited PTO and benefits.  We are looking for a Marketing Technologist with 2-years Marketo experience (MCE preferred) with exposure to the marketing tech stack, marketing experience, SaaS tools, B2B experience, with a few more check boxes.


Looking to up your career and responsibilities?  Like to work with fortune 100 companies? Are you committed to being a next generation marketer?


Our ideal candidate is:


  • Excited about using the latest and greatest marketing and sales technologies!
  • Intrigued by customer data, what it tells you, and how you can turn into actionable insights.
  • Fascinated with the concept of a large MarTech stack and want to understand how each element integrates – better yet, you want to do it.
  • Someone with attention to detail that is only rivaled by your “get it done” attitude. Nothing stops you because you are continually challenging yourself and learning.



Interested?  Contact me for more information:



(If you are a more experienced Marketing Automation/Technologist – we are also looking for strong candidates that bring a lot of skills to the table.  Still contact me!)

We are kicking off the employee newsletter within Marketo.  We are managing to Exchange server monitoring numerous email received at one time.  Can anyone tell me if Marketo staggers their email sends from a platform perspective?  If yes, do you know the threshold value?

SMG is hiring a Marketing Operations Analyst! Are you an out-of-the-box thinker who eats, sleeps and breathes data? Then join our Rock Star Marketing team in this new role, guiding our scaling efforts through technical execution, data analysis, and digging knee-deep in Microsoft CRM, Marketo, and Google Analytics.

Kansas City! Stallard Technologies in Overland Park is looking for a Marketo Coordinator to join their fast-growing marketing team. Here are the details on LinkedIn:

OK, thanks to everyone who showed up for the pre-Summit meet up! We had a lot of new faces, great questions, and some great insights into the new certifications and how to get the most out of Summit.


It's time to plan for the next MUG, and as we discussed in January, I'd like to extend an invitation to MUG members to come up with a project they'd like to present. The potential here is enormous, but think about organizational tips, a problem you've solved, an on-boarding story, or a new angle that's unique to your experience. Send me (message in the community or directly) a short description if you're interested.


I'm setting the tentative date at Tuesday, June 6, 2017*, which I'll confirm when we have the speaker and venue set up.


Have fun at Summit, and see you in June!

Greater Kansas City Marketo MUG members:


At last week's meeting, we talked about the distinctive language that Marketo uses, and ways of making it easier for experienced and new users to communicate. Marketo doesn't have anything like that in use (I asked), so I have posted an idea for a simple, printable, visual guide to Marketo terms.


Vote the idea up! Feel free to clarify in the idea comments if you can improve it.


Highly visual guide to Marketo language for newbies.


Also, if you're heading to Summit next week, make sure do download the mobile app!

MUG Meeting Wrap Up

Posted by Margaret Allen Apr 22, 2016

Thanks to everyone who came out to Black Dog for our inaugural MUG meeting. We had a great group, with a wide range of experience and resources. For those who couldn't make it, we embarked in a free-form discussion of on-boarding, campaign design, tracking and notification, and even management groups. I wrote down a bunch of questions and points of confusion that came up during the discussion, and will post resources here as I find them.


To start off, there was a lot of discussion about account-based campaign structure and tracking revenue through Sales Force. This presentation from Nation last year was a good high-level case study on structuring Marketo in an account-based sales. There's a good question at the end on cross-sells, attribution and tags.


Sessions – The Marketing Nation Summit, April 13-15, 2015 – Marketo

Presentation by Chris Willis


  • SAVE THE DATE: The next meeting will be in mid-July, on a Tuesday evening, somewhere further north than Lenexa (suggestions welcome), date and location TBD.
  • We will also have a formal speaker and topic next time. If you have a project you want to share at a future meeting, let me know.

Need a pick-me-up?  Come to Black Dog Coffeehouse at 4:00 PM to meet fellow Marketo users, to trade tips and challenges, and set the agenda for future meetings!
