I'd like to create an Event campaign for a tradeshow and sync it to Salesforce, but I'd like to create sub-programs such as pre and post event Email nurture programs. This brings me to my 2 questions.
1. Can I create 1 event program and import lead nurturing programs as a local asset under that program?
2. Can I create 1 event program that syncs to 1 Salesforce Campaign? It looks like I'm limited to only have single email programs within my event program, which isn't practical for lead nurturing pre and post tradeshow and If I have to create multiple programs to execute my tradeshow marketing initiatives, can I link multiple programs in Marketo to the same campaign in Saleforce, or do I also have to create multiple campaigns in Salesforce?
I'd recommend you to create 1 event program and sync the same to the SFDC campaign and not have the pre and post event email nurture under the same program but keep it separately. Having said that, you can create different progressions under the same program to send pre and post event emails and this is very easily trackable in SFDC.
Let me explain this with an example:
Arrowpointe Tradeshow event
All these above sends are treated separately in Marketo and you can track individual leads and have a single SFDC campaign for all the sync. Hope this helps. Let me know.
This depends if you really want to link every touch to an SFDC Program.
A simpler way is:
If I have my pre-show campaigns as an email blast with form in email, can I then make the show campaigns (booth visits/demos) in events/tradeshow? Syncing to SFDC is a nightmare when there are multiple preshow emails and demo requests/booth visits. It seems they end up all being attributed to the show but where the actual touch occurs it gets muddied. I envision the parent campaign being the tradeshow with the last touch being the most current communication. I am searching for a best practice to engage for proper success metrics.
