Hello hello!
I'm very glad to participate in the mentorship program! I'm Gianluca, and I live in Italy, very close to the lake in Como.

I'm working in a software company in Switzerland, and I've been hired as a web developer, but I moved as a Marketing Technology and Analytics Expert in the last few months.

I've been working with Marketo for 6 years now, but in the last couple of years as the main administrator of the entire system. I'm working mainly with integration, complex flow, webhooks, REST API, and technology backend.

 

I hope to level up all my Marketo skills and become an Expert by the end of the program, and, why not, an Architect next year!

Hi ggerla! I am happy you are here. Sounds like we could learn a lot from each other as I have been mainly the Martech and Analytics side and only recently venturing more into the web side of things. I am jealous that you live near lake Como, I definitely would love to get over there some day!!

Hello Ashleigh, it’s great to have you as our mentor. I work as a Marketo Consultant at one of the big 4 firms in India. For quite some time, I’ve been struggling to use Velocity Script in my programs. Although I’ve used it in a very basic manner, I’m now aiming to minimize the number of emails creation in my programs using Velocity Script.

For instance, when creating an ON24 event in Marketo, I typically need to create at least 8 emails. I’m interested in reducing this count by creating a script that allows complete working with minimum emails.

Is this achievable?

 

Thanks,

Muneer

Hi @AshleighMo, any thought on my query..

Hi @SyedHasan ,

 

Can you elaborate on how are you planning to reduce the number of emails, because for an event program usually the emails created are related to invitation, follow up for register, confirmation of registration, reminder to attend & thank you for attending.

if you go by this minimum of 5 email have to be created.

By using velocity script you can only reduce amount of work needed to set up these emails.

Hi Syed!

 

Apologies for the delay in jumping in here, it was a holiday this week here in the United States so I had some time out of office and offline from technology before ramping up in the mentorship program. 

 

I will echo what Udit has said, you will still need to create those emails but it will reduce the amount of work you need to do for those emails. Think of it similar to dynamic content. You can use the velocity scripting to pull in relevant information to the email but you cannot use velocity scripting to build the email in its entirety. 

 

I think this would require a bit more background in your event strategy as well. What are you currently doing to market your On24 Events? Sounds like with 8 emails it is likely some combination of an invite, a reminder or 2 (to register and/or that the event is upcoming), a confirmation email, and some follow up emails. 

 

Depending on the content within those emails you may be able to reduce your workload and the time it takes to create the scripting by utilizing standard tokens and creating some standard templates that you could just plug the information into for each email. But I would need to see more of what you are doing. Happy to help if you want to share more!

Hi @AshleighMo, thanks for your response. So, regarding our events, we are creating ON24 events in Marketo. These events consist of 10 emails. 

  1. Invitation 
  2. Thank you for registering 
  3. Reminder (for those who were in the invitation list but has not registered to the event)
  4. Confirmation (for those who have registered. It is sent before 2 working days of event)
  5. Final Confirmation (for the registered people and is sent before 2 hours of event. It has the joining link)
  6. Thank you for attending
  7. No Show
  8. Event Re-schedule
  9. Event Delay
  10. Attended On-Demand

Now, here, I am looking to minimize the count of these emails to save the manual work. What I am trying to do is:

  1. I am looking to minimize the count of these emails to at-least 6-7
  2. I am thinking to add a script token. The script token should act at the designated trigger activity and should change the content of an email.

Is it possible to do?

 

Thanks,

Muneer
