How to Bolster Your Marketing Automation Investment

The Marketo Integration Challenge

The Tool Is Only Half the Battle

From reducing overhead costs to increasing sales productivity, Marketo comes packed with possibilities and promise. But those possibilities and all that promise are hard to capitalize on right out of the box. 

It’s kind of like buying an energy-efficient car. Sure, your new environmentally-friendly vehicle might be able to get 30 miles per gallon, but that can only happen in peak driving conditions and with good driving habits. The same could be said for marketing automation. 

Just having a marketing automation tool like Marketo doesn’t guarantee your success. It all comes down to how you use it. And integrations can help ensure that you’re using the tool in the best, most productive way.
