Hello everyone!

 

Super excited to meet you all! πŸŒŸ

 

My name is Aisha and I am based in Atlanta, Georgia! I am an Email Nurture Program Specialist at Jamf Software, responsible for 400+ emails for my organization! I also didn't have much marketing experience prior to this role, and had no Marketo experience prior to this role but I had a background in Sales and Customer Success so I am able to understand the customer journey and implement that into this role.

 

Super excited to meet and learn with you all! Connect with me on Linkedin!

Hi Everyone!

I'm excited to be here!  I too am in Atlanta.  I have my own startup marketing agency which grew out of work I did previously as an employee.  One of my clients today uses Marketo and I have been the co-manager on that project with the Dir of Demand Gen.  It is an amazing program we have built!  Because I have enjoyed this project so much, I would like to take on more projects and help grow those types of clients.  I am excited for the certification program to help fill in any gaps I may have and use that as a springboard to adding on more Marketo projects.

 

We use Marketo to run a global nurture program, monthly newsletters for customers and partners, an internal newsletter for the training program communication, NPS management, Win/Loss Program and all event management - they do about 50 events a year!  It's a robust program and we are always looking for new ways to use automation.

 

We migrated from Pardot and so we LOVE Marketo so much - tons of flexibility and a great program!

 

Look forward to meeting everyone!  Let's connect on LinkedIn!

 

P.S. a Fun Fact about me, is my name is spelled Megan - but pronounced Mee-gan with long e.  Yes everyone gets it wrong but then once you learn it, it sometimes messes up your other Megan friends - ha ha!
