I'm surprised no on came to the rescue on this one.
I found your question to see what to make of the Sprout Social + Marketo relationship but yours was the only question I found. Does anyone use this combination? and perhaps to OP, what did you decide back in May?
I would also like to know more information too. They are part of the LaunchPoint program but there's not mention of integration.
Hi There! We use SproutSocial and Oktopost! We use Oktopost to create content, schedule posts, and then sync data to Marketo. When someone becomes a lead in Marketo, it will say they came from Oktopost and we are able to measure what posts are driving the most leads. We are able to which of our social posts our leads engaged with.
The downside is that you can only track your own content with Okto; it does not capture all relevant social activities. We use SproutSocial for inbox management of the DM’s we send through our own automated demand gen system, Socedo. Sprout Social gives us a clean view into people’s direct messages in response to our messages. SproutSocial does not integrate with Marketo.
At our company, we also like to track relevant social activities around our space. We use a social lead monitoring solution we developed in house to identify and engage with leads based on social activity directly in our marketo database.
Hope that helps, if you find yourself with any subsequent questions feel free to email me directly at email@example.com.
