Marketo Integration

Events represent a significant share of marketing budgets. Yet, while most organizations understand the overall importance of events to their business, it has been challenging for marketers to demonstrate the specific and tangible return on their investment.

By integrating events into your digital marketing programs with Certain’s Marketo integration, marketers can leverage the two-way data flow to not only register attendees and track what they are doing, but also understand their actual interests to drive more personalized lead nurturing and effective sales follow-up.  This allows for intelligently designed events that accelerate leads through every stage of the sales cycle and deliver measurable ROI.


  • Eliminate inefficient, error-prone processes such as manually importing attendee lists and updating registration statuses
  • Use existing data to inform and personalize the event experience for attendees
  • Optimize sales and marketing follow-up 
  • Provide real-time insight into event behavior, engagement, and interest
  • Score leads based on level of event engagement  and areas of interest 
  • Measure ROI of event spend more effectively

How it works:

  • Build segmented target lists in Marketo and import into Certain
  • Register attendees in Certain  and update/create leads in Marketo
  • Change Marketo program status for leads and trigger additional Marketo campaign flow steps, such as scoring, alerts, or synchronization to CRM
  • Track the degree and quality of engagement for each event participant to update behavioral scores in Marketo
  • Tag event activities with one or more company-defined areas of interest, and score leads based on an attendee’s level of interest in each area
