  • Sanjay, Marketo has also been leading in this transition…. First bringing people to ‘revenue performance management’ and now leading them toward a new philosophy of customer engagement. How does Marketo help your customers become customer obsessed in the Age of the Customer?
  • Why do I care?

    Marketing has changed more in the last 2 years than the last 200 – much of this is due to the fact that buying has changed. Not that long ago, there were few 3rd party sources of information – information scarcity – which meant that a buyer had to get most of their information from sales. It also meant we lived in a world of attention abundance, with fewer channels competing for a buyer’s attention. But now, there is an explosion of readily available information— so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.

    All this data = buyers today are more empowered. The Web provides them with instant information gratification. They can access detailed specs, pricing, and reviews about goods and services 24/7 with a few flicks of their thumbs. Meanwhile, social media encourages them to share and compare, while mobile devices add a wherever/whenever dimension to every aspect of the experience.

    Given these changes in buying and marketing, one pattern emerges: your customer base is a strategic asset. It is as strategic, if not more so, than your IP, your physical plant, etc. Included in this view, is not only your existing customer base, but also the potential customers and relationships that you can develop to grow and nurture this base. You make investments (money, people, resources) to nurture and grow this base and engage them over the course of their buying cycle. You have the power and responsibility to be the architect of customer engagement across the entire customer life cycle. The sooner that you realize this is a strategic asset, the sooner you can gain an unfair advantage over your competitors to maximize the yield of that strategic asset.

    Marketo’s platform is focused on elevating your customer engagement: how do you grow the size of the customer portfolio, and maximize the return on the customer asset portfolio.  The powerful customer engagement platform allows you to have the ability to document and report on the performance of the asset over time, and how those investments pay back.

  • Your relationships with your customers are of the upmost importance and should be the primary point of focus given that your customer base is your strategic asset. To capitalize on this opportunity requires building relationships, let’s explore the 4 principles of enduring customer relationships:

    Personalized – focus on customer’s behavior instead of demographic, timely & meaningful interactions
    Durable – last a life time across various stages in life or buying cycle: ie. Credit card (younger) to mortgage rates to life insurance (older)
    Directed – Clear customer journeys with call to actions in place
    Engage LearnEvaluate  BUY
    Buy Enjoy Trust ADVOCATE
    Own UseValue RENEW
    Individualized – Get to know me as a person (when I wanted to be contacted, how I wanted to be contacted, at what times I want to be contacted, etc..)

    Marketers can control more than advertising & awareness and guide the customer journey and directly own the consumer relationship.

    But most brands are still running campaigns
    Campaigns are company centric, not customer centric
    Campaigns are time-bound
    Campaigns have no memory; they lack context

    Marketers must build relationships with consumers over time
    Help new customers feel like an existing customer
    They’ll know you, trust you, buy from you when they’re ready
    Keep existing customers coming back

    Why now? The marketer with the most customer relationships will win.


  • It’s a new world…with new marketing rules
    Whether you market to ten thousand or 10 million…whether you are in ecommerce, consumer packaged goods, education, healthcare, or any other business, you can market to engage consumers just like Amazon.com has for years
    Everyone can build personal relationships with their customers and drive higher conversions and ever greater revenue.

    We believe that buying has changed forever.

    Not that long ago, there were few 3rd party sources of information – information scarcity – which meant that a buyer had to get most of their information from sales. It also meant we lived in a world of attention abundance, with fewer channels competing for a buyer’s attention.

    But now, there is an explosion of readily available information— so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.

    All this data = buyers today are more empowered. The Web provides them with instant information gratification. They can access detailed specs, pricing, and reviews about goods and services 24/7 with a few flicks of their thumbs. Meanwhile, social media encourages them to share and compare, while mobile devices add a wherever/whenever dimension to every aspect of the experience.

    Result: Forrester Reports that 65-90% of buying process is complete when consumer walks into store/branch/dealer, or contacts sales. This translates to an organizational power shift from Sales to Marketing, and a corresponding responsibility shift to Marketing for a much greater share of the buying cycle.

    All this requires deep changes in how we market.
  • As you build your database and determine the right mix, Marketo lets you drive highly-relevant outbound marketing campaigns intended to further engage your audience members. These campaigns can be driven across channels, not only online, but offline as well. And through our LaunchPoint Partner ecosystem, many solutions exist to enhance the capabilities of Marketo, such as extending the number of channels you can reach prospects and customers through, including Direct Mail and SMS to name a few.
  • And that’s what our customer the Economist has been doing
    Customers interact with them through a multitude of channels
    The web to social media to webinars to live events
    They know that @philf217 is the same person as phil@marketo.com and ‘score’ each of those interactions as part of full picture of me
    And, then they communicate with me based on a full 360 view of what I --- and every individual customer -- has done across all of those channels
    This makes every communication highly relevant – resulting in deeper insight into customers and higher conversions
  • “… Considering the material you receive from sales people, how much do you agree with the following statements about the content you are provided?”

  • I mentioned that we can send the right lead to a sales rep at the right time. Most solutions simply alert sales reps in real-time when just about any “event” happens. A person opens an email, the rep is alerted. A person clicks a link, the rep is alerted. A person visits the website, the rep is alerted. The result is an endless stream of alerts that are usually meaningless, as they aren’t a good indicator of buying intent.

    Sales reps usually find these alerts interesting for the first hour, annoying for the 2nd, and then they ignore them completely.

    Marketo Sales Insight, which is a sales intelligence tool delivered natively within the CRM, is different, in 3 major ways:

    It presents the sales rep with a prioritized list of leads to follow-up
    The list is prioritized based on lead score, which takes into consideration both interests (as determined by behaviors) and fit (determined by demographic and firmographic criteria). In other words, if a person is heavily engaged, but isn’t a fit, it won’t bubble up to the top of the list. Rather, the list will contain leads that are both interested and a fit on top, meaning they are much more likely to be receptive to contact attempts by the sales rep. In other words, they’re win-ready!
    All this insight is delivered natively within the CRM.

    Sales reps that use Marketo Sales Insight find it to be an incredibly valuable tool, because it isn’t a novelty. It really helps them sell more…more quickly.
  • Citrix markets to more than 260,000 companies, in 19 languages, in over 100 countries, and they just recently zoomed past their two billion dollar a year gross revenue goal. Despite this phenomenal growth, Citrix was still using an antiquated points-marketing system with ad-hoc scoring that was difficult to track and only applicable to North America. As a result, Citrix would at times take up to two to three weeks to pass qualified leads onto Sales. What Citrix needed was a centralized marketing platform powerful enough to be used as a worldwide system, yet agile enough to adapt to the needs of local marketing teams. Citrix also realized that the revenue cycle does not end with opportunity conversion or when a deal closes. Thus, Citrix wanted to ensure a positive customer experience that in turn could lead to new sales opportunities from existing customers.

    Highlights:
    Doubled lead-to-opportunity conversion from 10 to 20 percent;
    Aligned four different geographic regions on a single marketing platform in just two months;
    Reduced lead velocity from 2 to 3 weeks to a matter of minutes;
    Generated a 23% increase in marketing contacts; and
    Citrix’s marketing has achieved a 21% reduction in deactivated leads, by increasing lead quality

  • Speaking of the incremental improvement, this involves having the sophisticated tools to test and retest. Marketo helps you gain deep insight into the journey your customers are taking and is the only solution that allows you to see multi touch revenue attribution across the customer journey. You can see visually each and every touch point along the way, along with the campaign that drove it. By understanding the buying journey, you can find ways to accelerate it, reducing the time to make a sale. This ties back into the Sales Insight that your reps can get access through this analyzer through the CRM (if SFDC), letting them see who is engaging with your company’s content, regardless of whether or not the rep is dealing with them directly or not. It provides them with helpful insight as they navigate their deals.
  • Marketers like the ones at Slimband. Slimband is the largest surgical weight loss center in Canada.
    They have many, many people that are interested in their solutions, so they scoring every new visitor and possible consumer
    They then use a data-driven model to look at past and current customers to *predict* who will purchase from them and target those consumers with specific communication
    When you know who’s most likely to purchase, you can focus marketing dollars on the most valuable efforts
    And that results in higher conversions and greater sales.
