Example Marketo Engagement: Global B2B Services and Content Company

After hearing about the services provided by our marketing automation experts, a global B2B services and content company came to us as they were consolidating seven separate Salesforce instances, acquired via M&A activity, into a single Salesforce instance.

With a charter to get Marketo working with the new consolidated Salesforce instance, we shut down the company’s prior instance of Marketo that had become unsalvageable due to poor oversight and our experts helped configure a new, from-scratch Marketo instance to support the consolidated entity’s marketing and lead generation objectives.

Based on our comprehensive Marketo audit and assessment analysis, we determined that data inconsistencies and general Marketo data hygiene were key issues that our Walker Sands Marketo consultants identified as needing to be addressed with urgency.

We cleaned up the Marketo contact database, eliminating duplicates and unmailable addresses, and in the processed reduced actionable contacts from 1.2 million to 600,000. While getting the Marketo instance set up, our Web Services team revamped the corporate website and rolled out localized sites for EMEA and APAC. We tightly integrated the new digital presence with Marketo, Salesforce, back-end analytics platforms and a number of third-party tools (for Marketo integrations with live events, webinars, Adwords, LinkedIn promotion and more).
