Hey All,

 

I'm Akshat and i'm so excited to be a part of this cohort to gain the coveted Architect exam . I'm a 2X Marketo certified(MCP & MCE) professional with over 8 years(12 years of Marketing experience overall) of working in the marketo domain for various organizations like Wipro, 6sense and most recently aPriori Technologies. I think Marketo has been the best thing that has happened to me professionally and has helped me seen an important member of the RevOps teams across organizations. 

 

Special thanks to @alludoalex  & @Elizabeth_Robic  for taking us under their umbrella to achieve the MCA and learn from the best in the business. Looking forward to experience.

Hi Everyone,

Happy to be involved in the mentorship program. I began working in SFDC and Pardot in 2008. After moving to San Diego, I worked in Marketo for the first time in 2015. I ran the Pardot platform twice more, and migrated one of them to Marketo. Today I'm back to Marketo and have a professional and expert certification. I'm anxious to learn more and keep using Marketo.

Hi all, happy to have you in the group - I'll be in the unique position of re-taking the exam along with you for my recertification. After completion, I'll be 3x MCE and 2x Marketo Architect Master certified. 

I've spent close to 10 years as a Marketo practitioner both agency and in-house, largely supporting SaaS enterprises in both B2B and B2C organizations. As you can imagine, one common issue most organizations have is the never ending struggle with their data.

 

I've worked through numerous migrations to and from Marketo, with databases of all sizes. Marketo is a huge tool, and though I've worked in so many areas of the platform I have a deep respect for it in acknowledging I may never touch it all. That being said, I've done a lot of work around API's, webhooks, integrations, asset-building, system governance, lead lifecycle, scoring, and Velocity. 

In addition to the resources above, I'd encourage you to take the free practice test available in Adobe's Certmetrics Credential Management a few weeks before the exam and create your own flashcards to give you plenty of time to absorb information. Information retention is usually best when you're having to actively record that information.

If you don't have access for some reason (I'm not sure if it's different for me), no worries. We'll be providing sample questions from quizzes throughout the program! 

Based on my previous experience with the exam, remember that you don't need to know 100% of everything. People tend to specialize and that's ok. Take the time you need and read carefully!

For syncing from CRM - can you please explain what this means exactly? Does this mean the lookup field will come into Marketo as a random ID number instead of the referenced name? Does anyone have an example of what this would look like? Thank you!

 

What about Custom SFDC Lookup Fields?
Lookup fields in SFDC sync the ID but not the referenced name.
