In our recent blog, we dived into Marketo Engage’s exciting new Engagement Map feature, which is now live! However, that’s not all Marketo has in store for us this summer. Today, we’ll be discussing two more eagerly anticipated updates: Dynamic Chat Enhancements and Interactive Webinars.

Dynamic Chat

What is Dynamic Chat in Marketo Engage?

Dynamic Chat is a powerful chat interface that is currently being rolled out across Marketo Instances with limited availability. This user-friendly chat tool allows you to engage with both individuals and accounts visiting your website. It enables you to collect essential information like names, contact details, and free text, making it a valuable lead generation tool. Additionally, site visitors can easily book meetings with your Sales Team through Dynamic Chat.

Exciting new updates for Dynamic Chat:

  • Roles and permissions: have more control over your Dynamic Chat set-up
  • Dialogue engagement report: gain valuable insights into your chat interactions
  • Meeting booking email notifications: keep your sales team informed and organised
  • Auto-populate inferred data in Marketo Engage: save time and enhance lead profiles with auto-populated inferred data
  • Chat Channel Attribution: Attribute marketing initiatives to Dynamic Chat using the new Chat channel, enabling better tracking and analysis.
  • Dynamic Chat as a Person Source: Dynamic Chat can now serve as a Person source in Marketo Engage for enhanced data management.
  • Sales Insight Panel Integration: View Dynamic Chat activities in the Sales Insight panel, available in both Salesforce Classic and Lightning.

Real-life use case: IMG Academy

Let’s take a look at a real-world example of how Dynamic Chat has made an impact. IMG Academy needed a chat channel to assist customers with inquiries about their Camp options. The chat sequences provided answers to FAQs, pricing information, add-on booking options, and contact details for Sales Representatives. Since its launch of Dynamic Chat in July 2023, IMG Academy has seen fantastic results:

  • 4019 interactions
  • 255 engaged users
  • 6.34% engagement rate

Interactive Webinars

What to expect from Interactive Webinars in Marketo Engage

Interactive Webinars are a brand new feature, currently available through a Limited Access program, catering to a pre-selected list of Marketo customers. An EMEA release is expected in October 2023, and once live, they will be accessible to all Marketo Engage subscribers.
