Introduce Yourself

Re: Introduce Yourself

I'm Christina Zuniga and I'm the Marketing Automation Manager at InTouch Health. You can see my original post on Jun 8, 2015 when I was with my previous company. I live in Santa Barbara, CA and I run our Marketo instance providing user training, support and all the set up for the system. My favorite thing about Marketo (if I could only choose one) is the easy user interface. I've had other systems *cough Aprimo cough* where I spent the majority of my time walking users through connecting steps, with Marketo it's drag, drop, easy to understand.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hey Marketo Nation!

I work for HyperX Media, a Marketo LaunchPoint partner. I'm over the sales efforts and became a MCE in September. Our agency works with many people just like you to help create strategy, implement and manage Marketo, optimize and report on campaigns where there is a lack of internal resources, bandwidth or expertise. We have a team that provides more than just Marketo management including lead generation (SEO, SEM, display, social), creative (design/dev) and content (ad copy, foundational assets, email, web page content).

I live in Salt Lake City, UT at the base of the Wasatch mountains within minutes from Park City & Snowbird. I love working with marketing teams and being part of their success. I look forward to rubbing shoulders with all of you!

Cheers!

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello there everyone!

I'm Alan, Director of Marketing and Creative for One Brand. Our company is actually a collection of 15 separate, and sometimes competing brands, that provide printing, direct mail and digital advertising. Although I have been in marketing and design for about 13 years, I am fairly new to Marketo. It has been quite an adventure tailoring our instance to accommodate 15 brands, but so far I have been able to accomplish just about everything I've set out to do. Going forward I'll be sure to share any insights, tips or tricks I discover and look forward to seeing the same from you all too!

Looking forward to connecting,

Alan

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Alan,
Sounds like we may be in very similar boats. Are you using Marketo's agency model with several instances, one per brand, or utilizing only one instance? I'd be curious to learn about your experience setting a multi=brand account up.
Best,
Christina

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Christina,

Good to hear I am not alone! We are using one instance for all brands. It's been a bit of work, but I've been able to accomplish just about everything I've set out to do. We use brand IDs and lead owner to segment the database — with snippets, tokens and dynamic content all our messaging is brand and rep specific including the body, signatures and branded footers. The only piece I am missing to eliminate the need for cloning programs for every brand is the branded domain.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Good morning, y'all! I'm Lauren McKenna and I'm new here. I'm the marketing automation and strategy manager at Delta Risk LLC, A Chertoff Group Company. We provide advisory, monitoring, and threat response cybersecurity services to businesses in the public and private sectors.

I earned my Marketo Certified Expert designation earlier this year. I'm always looking for innovative ways to use Marketo (in sync with Salesforce) to make my company run smoother, faster, and more efficiently. I kind of nerd out about new ideas and fun ways to do things!

I live in Arlington, Virginia, just across the river from D.C. I'm a huge fan of the Washington Nationals. I love to read and travel, I run and do yoga, and I couldn't live without coffee and sunshine. I could never choose between Star Trek and Star Wars. I have a 14 year-old cat who acts like a dog, and a 1-year-old puppy who will probably always be a puppy.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and making the best use of this community!

Lauren
