Hi Everyone!

Excited to meet you all and to learn together in this program. I’ve been working with Marketo for over 15 years now and I think I’ve taken this exam 8 time now. I have also worked with dozens of people to get certified and I love the process because I always end up learning more myself. I know the more questions that are asked here, the more we discuss, the more we all get out of this. So please ask ALL of the questions and jump in with answers as well!

 

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/joshuaarrington/

 

Also a huge thank you to @Jon_Chen for running this fantastic program and everything he does in this community. I think the best ways to get better with Marketo are 

  1. Use it. Use the platform every day
  2. Participate in this Marketing Nation community.  Ask questions, answer questions, read what people are talking about.
  3. Attend the Marketo User Groups (MUGs), in person and online.

Hi Josh, and all aspirants in our group!

 

It's nice to meet you. I'm super excited to learn together throughout this program. A little bit about me, I'm based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am the Marketing and Sales Manager at Oktopost, a social media management and employee advocacy tool that is built for B2B companies. I've been using Marketo for almost 2 years now, and am looking forward to passing this exam and getting an even deeper understanding of the platform! πŸ€—

If anyone is looking for a starting point or resources on a specific topic, Cynthia Chang (@cychang_adobe ) from Adobe published this amazing guide about a year ago. This is probably the best guide I've seen and I love how it's broken down into specific concepts as well as basics / advanced levels.

Please let me know if there are any specific concepts or areas you want to dive into.

Thanks for this!

In addition, my coworker also wrote up a study guide for the expert exam with tons of links. It is laid out in the same format as the Adobe study guide. There might be some overlaps but it could also be useful!

Okay, so I've been running through the Exam Prep Guide briefly and I need to know - is there any trick to remembering how Workspaces and Person Partitions function? πŸ˜† When to use them, how they work, what can/can't be shared between them, etc. I feel like there's SO much going on and my first thought is that the only solution is to just work on memorizing it, especially if you don't actively use them in your instance.

 

If anyone has any tips, though, I'm all ears lol!
