    GoToWebinar and Setting Up Marketo Program

    Cliff Lin

      I want to create a webinar program that

      1. Sends out an email invite

      2. Change status when they fill out the gotowebinar form(the form hosted on gotowebinar)

      3. send out confirmation.

       

      I followed this doc. Create an Event with GotoWebinar - Marketo Docs - Product Documentation

       

      I'm stuck at 2 though. I don't see a trigger for "fill out form" with gotowebinar form there.
      Additionally, should I do 1 as a nested email program? or is it better to just create another step in the smart campaign to send out the invite?

          Since you're directing them to GTW - GTW should be sending down the registrants back to Marketo (if your integration is setup correctly), and will be changing that status for you automatically.

          We never used nested email programs.  Simply because field marketing will more than likely want to send this out more than once, in multiple waves (to additional users).  Instead use a regular smart campaign and include defined wait steps to send out confirmation emails, reminder emails and post-event emails - all within a single smart campaign.

            Confirming that everything Dan said is accurate. Also wanted to remind you that you can manage the webinar registration process with a MKTO form and LP with this integration. As long as the webinar program is synced with the GTW event, program status changing will push people into GTW.

             

            Example:

            Person fills MKTO form on a  landing page you created in MKTO. Change program status to Webinar > Registered.

             

            This scenario will automatically push the record and mapped information into GTW as a registrant so you can really chose how much or how little of this process you want to customize or manage. Even down to choosing between automating your thanks for attending or sorry we missed you emails from MKTO vs GTW.

             

            I like this process more than using the GTW registration form becasue its easier to manage/customize to your needs and you get all the normal functionality, like "Filled Out Form" triggers and whatnot.
