Marketo Engage Pro training

Become a Marketo Pro

Get more leads and revenue. Spend less time getting them.

What if you could convert more leads and drive more revenue...
...with less work?

You have the fundamentals of Marketo Engage down. You can build emails, landing pages, forms and events.

You can get campaigns out the door. Good work getting your skills to this level — Marketo is no simple tool.

But if you’re like most marketers at this stage, you still have some big, burning questions. Like…

  • “How do I make Marketo do exactly what I want it to?”
  • “How do I run complex campaigns without spending my entire afternoon cloning and tinkering with assets?”
  • “Is there a faster, easier way to do this? There must be, right?”

If any of that resonates, it’s time to take your Marketo skills to the next level and become a Marketo pro.

Your work will be more rewarding when you’re a Marketo pro

When you’re a Marketo pro, you will…

  • Run campaigns that bring in more leads and revenue
  • Spend less time building things from scratch
  • Quickly target the ideal audience for each campaign
  • Understand how the technology actually works instead of just going through the motions
  • Run more sophisticated, optimised campaigns that produce outsized results
  • Get 1 step closer to passing your Marketo Certification
  • Build reports that tell the right stories with data
  • Develop in-demand skills that marketing teams are desperate for
  • Deliver results that prove to your boss that you’re indispensable

How do you become a Marketo pro?

First, the bad news:

You don’t become a Marketo pro by watching Youtube videos whenever you get stuck.

Nor do you become a Marketo pro by learning bits and pieces from your colleague who doesn’t have the time or expertise to train you properly.

Without structured training from experts…

…you’re left to guess as to whether or not you’re building things the quickest or most effective way.

Like when some “expert” on Youtube shows you a 45-minute workaround because he doesn’t know Marketo has a built-in function that does the same thing in 2 minutes.

Or when your colleague shows you how she runs a webinar series, but you never really understand why she does it that way.

Now the good news:

This structured training from the Marketo nerds who live and breathe marketing automation is your fast-track to becoming a Marketo pro.

Introducing: Marketo Engage Pro

The online course that helps you get more leads and revenue in less time

Now you can become a Marketo pro in a matter of weeks.

With structured, self-paced training from marketing automation consultants who spend their days doing one thing:

Helping marketers like you get more value from Marketo. Whether that means showing your boss that you’re generating more leads and revenue…

…or getting complex campaigns out the door without staying late to tinker with assets and filters….

…here’s how you’ll get there:

1) Structured training

So you can become a Marketo pro fast

Youtube can be useful when you have a specific problem (sometimes).

But to truly level up your skills to the point where your boss takes notice…

…you need thorough, best-practice-driven training.

Here’s what a Marketo pro needs to know — all covered in this course:

  • How to use tokens to dramatically cut campaign build time
  • How to use filters & triggers to target the right people and increase conversions
  • How to run A/B tests to optimise your results
  • How the lead database really works
  • How SFDC and Marketo work together
  • How to make Marketo do your work for you
  • Run more sophisticated smart campaigns that get better results in less time
  • Deliver reports that tell the story your stakeholders need to hear

2) Feedback from experts

So you know you’re doing things properly

This is the only self-paced Marketo training where experts give you feedback on your skills.

Throughout the course, you’ll get small assignments that put your new skills to the test.

Our expert consultants review your work and give you feedback on what you did right and what you can improve.

This includes up to 4 mentoring hours — so you can ask questions and build your confidence.

That’s why this is the only self-paced training where you never have to wonder “Did I do that right?”

Get feedback on your work. And answers to your toughest questions.

So you’ll finish this course knowing — beyond any doubt — that your Marketo skills are up to best practice standards.

  • Assignment: Build a scalable sales alert for an event and get expert feedback on your work
