I would definitely be interested in meeting up to talk Marketo. I've used Pardot in the past but we are just getting up and running on Marketo here at Automated Insights, where I run the digital marketing efforts. I am looking to learn as much as I can about Marketo and others' experiences with it - I'm afraid I won't have much to offer the group just yet as we just got started but I think hangouts are a great idea!.
Hey Kieran - I've used Pardot as well, so I could probably help you make that transition a little easier. There are definitely pros and cons of both - you'll find that Marketo is a lot more scalable if you set it up right.
I think I actually applied at AI several years ago when I was starting my career after hearing about your platform on an NPR story. Pretty cool stuff!
I'll find some times/dates that work in early and mid August and I'll post them when I get a chance, and we can figure out something that works for the handful of us on the board.
I am the MUG leader and am looking forward to setting up our first official meeting. I'll be attending the Raleigh Block Party on July 28th and hope to meet some of our members there and recruit even more. Will you be attending? I will most definitely take you up on the meeting location offer!
