Watch Episode 1 Here: Krewe Chat - Marketo Community Tips & Best Practices - YouTube 

Hi everyone!

Many of you have already seen the Nation Talks series that Liz (Courter) Oseguera​ & Scott Wilder​ spearheaded last year. That's still a phenomenal channel to help grow your Marketo knowledge and learn a few tips and best practices you may not have thought about yet (you can access the Nation Talks here.)​. I strongly encourage everyone to continue to use and contribute to that channel!

However... being that we're all about forward momentum, a few members of #mykrewe (Jennifer DiMaria​, Dory Viscogliosi​, Ande Kempf​, Enrico deLeon​, & Rachel Egan​) and I got together and brainstormed what we're affectionately referring to as "Krewe Chat." Basically, we wanted to have an informal venue where Marketo users of all stripes can come together, ask real questions, get real, human answers, and take the user group experience to the next level.* Our first entry in this series starts with an easy subject: how to get the most value from being involved in the #MKTGNation community.

These informal Hangouts are going to occur on a bi-weekly basis on Fridays at 3:30 EST, and we'll be discussing news and best practices relevant to marketing; not necessarily only Marketo. Keep an eye out here on community for an event announcement.

Our approach to these discussions is to make it a full 360 degree view of the challenges we as marketers deal with on a daily basis. We're currently planning future talks about ABM, Web Personalization, Retargeting/Adbridge, a shameless copy of UnBounce's hilarious #PageFights series (but with emails)​, and more, but we also want to crowd-source some of the subject matter.

What kinds of discussions do you want to hear and be involved in? Let's use this thread as a discussion platform. During a broadcast, you can tweet us your questions/comments with #krewechats, and we'll address them on-air.

PS: If you watch nothing else, there is a particularly important question raised around the 28:00 minute mark Grégoire Michel

Hi Joe,

Thx for the reference

One could also read this: Getting the most of the community when you have a Marketo question​ and this How to be a Good Marketo Nation Citizen

The answer to the 28:00 minute questions is simply "Greg", although Rachel, just a minute earlier, got it almost right and the rest of the team made a good try . Just don't call me Gregory, that's not me.

LOL - Greg... Your dedication to the community is awe-inspiring. I'm crushed to know I've been saying it wrong this whole time, but on the other hand we had a bet going that the person that got it right gets to buy the next round... I hope you'll join us for that at Summit next year!

Also, how would you feel joining us for one of these in the future? I know the time-zone thing might be an issue, but maybe we could do one in the your morning / our afternoon sometime? Topic TBD
