Hi Everyone! Very excited to be participating in this mentorship program. My name is Kym and I am located in Pittsburgh, PA. I work for an SF-based company called Proofpoint, which is in the cybersecurity industry. 

 

I live and breathe Marketo and have been a user for about 5 years now.

 

Looking to become a certified expert and meet some people through this program.

 

Nice to meet you all.

Hi Kym! It's great to meet you!

 

With five years of experience, you should be well set to pass your exam. What parts of Marketo do you use the most frequently? Which parts do you never touch? πŸ™‚

Hi Ellen! Nice to virtually meet you.

I run all email marketing for the Americas (N. America/Canada/LATAM) for my company, which includes managing a pretty hefty email calendar (about 3-5 sends per day Tue/Wed/Thurs) and I own our nurture programs.

 

I also work closely with our webinar, event and field marketing teams to send their invites.

 

I rarely touch admin-type Marketo activities but meet bi-weekly with our ops teams because I keep a close eye on our database, what data hygiene campaigns we are running, and ongoing segmentation work.

In addition, I am responsible for reporting against all email activities, so I do a lot of report building in Marketo in combination with PowerBI.

TL:DR - I will likely have questions around anything other than email programs πŸ™‚

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Ellen and I'll be here to help you study for your certification exam. I have been using Marketo for almost 10 years now, first as a user focused on building event programs and sending blast emails (without any permissions to activate smart campaigns!). Eventually got upgraded within my company to building more complex programs....and then finally went to work for a Marketo agency where now I get to help a lot of clients with very different aspects of Marketo.

 

I failed my certification exam the first time (back when I wasn't even allowed to activate smart campaigns), but I have since gotten the Architect certification as well, and helped Adobe write exam questions as well. It's a journey!

 

Let me know what questions you have!

Hi Ellen! 

 

I apologize that it has taken a second for me to reply to your messages. My name is Natali and I currently work at Fiix Software as a Marketing Operations Specialist in Toronto, ON.

 

I have been working with Marketo for just over a year now. I am definitely new to the software but have completed my Professional certification so far! I am looking forward to growing my expertise in Marketo and marketing automation in general. Thank you for your time to mentor us, and I'm looking forward to being more engaged in this thread in preparation for next certifications!

Nice to meet everyone! Look forward to working with you all.

Hello All!

My name is Keoni and I currently reside just outside of Phoenix, Arizona. I started using Marketo almost 2 years ago when I was hired at my previous company. At the time, I had zero Marketo experience and was tossed in head first into an Admin role. Since then, I gained my Professional cert., and I'm now looking to get my Expert, with aspirations to attain Master. 

 

Super excited to (virtually) meet everyone and participate in this Mentorship πŸ™‚

Hi Keoni, it's great to meet you. Being thrown straight into Admin is a great way to learn! What was one of your "ah ha!" moments after taking over a Marketo instance?
