With 10+ years of experience in marketing automation, analytics, digital marketing, CRMs, workflow design and more, I have a passion for technology and marketing. I have worked in different industries such as oil & gas, cyber security, retail, software, financial services, and non profit organizations. Holder of Marketo Engage Professional Adobe Certification, I have also been a Austin Marketo User Group speaker and spoke at the 6sense Breakthrough Conference about maximizing ABM efforts through Marketo Engage.

Hello Erin and my fellow aspirants. I am Sadhana Ravuri working as an Email Marketing Executive at KPMK UK. I am based out of London since 2022 and belong to India. I started my career with Amazon in 2017 as a support associate and paved my way into the field of Marketing Automation technology. Over a course of time, I have developed a deep passion for this domain as I saw myself leveraging my skills to the optimum level be it technical, innovative or communication skills. I chose Marketo in particular because of its robust UI and functionality, especially the ease with which the campaigns can be created. So the question for me is "why not Marketo?!". Besides my passion, I am an extrovert who loves making like minded network and the way I see it, there is no better way than learning together. And thats why, this programme! πŸ™‚ I am so excited to meet you all and learn from you; also help you in my remit to achieve the goals we have. Lets do this.

Hello fellow mentees (and Mentor, Erin!),
My name is Geoffrey Landrum and I work for an FI in central Illinois. I've been using Marketo for about a year now, but only for email sends. I am hoping to learn more about nurture programs, drip campaigns, and analytics. I've learned a lot through the Marketo Community and MUG and am available to help, if I can.
Looking forward to collaborating with you all!

Have a good weekend!

Hello, fellow group of aspirants!
I decided to take the Marketo Engage Professional Practice Exam without studying to gauge my understanding of Marketo Engage. I was pretty surprised that I knew as much as I did! 
First practice test without studying!First practice test without studying!

Nice work, @laevinsdad.  That's a great idea - taking the test to give you a baseline of where you are in your overall development.  

 

I'll try to do the same and we can gauge how we are doing.

Hello to all.

 

I'm Jeff Hensiek and I work at an FI in the greater Denver, Co area (@laevinsdad - you and I may have a lot in common πŸ˜‰).  

 

Here's a little about me:

My hobbies are golf, fly fishing, and building things.  What do these three things have in common?  They are all very intricate, detailed, and minor things can make a huge difference.  And, that is one of the main reasons that my career has gravitated to marketing automation - it's intricate, creative, detailed, and I get to build some cool stuff.

 

My background:

A good chunk of my career has been in the digital marketing space - mostly in franchising.  I've spent time both at the franchisor level (8 years at the corporate office) and also as a vendor (8 years running a digital marketing agency).  

 

For the last 2.3 years, I've been working at a FI, and one of the main things that attracted me to my current company was their use of Marketo (and that I get to learn Power Automate and play with Power BI).  While I have experience with KEAP (F.K.A. Infusionsoft) and HubSpot, I had always wanted to learn Marketo.  Which is why I'm very excited that I've been able to expand my knowledge over the past few years while on the platform.  However, I also recognize that I have a lot of room to grow.  My team and I have a pretty good handle on the basics and we're looking to build out some really cool things as well - so, all ideas are welcome... the more creative the better.

 

I look forward to connecting with you all and learning more about Marketo.

Thanks
