Wistia for Marketo
Capture video viewers’ info & send the leads straight to Marketo. Create Smart Lists based on video events & use Wistia thumbnails in emails.
Wistia is a video platform that gives you in-depth analytics, helping you learn more about your customers to make your videos even better. It’s easy enough for a 1-person startup and powerful enough for an enterprise business.
Upload your video to Wistia and customize how it looks, feels, and functions. Send it to your customers without any disruptive ads or related videos. Collect data about who’s watching and how, and use that data to inform your marketing decisions.
Connect with your customers
Customize your video player to match your brand, and add social buttons so your viewers can share the video with their audience. Then, add a Call to Action to your video, whether it's a clickable message, image, or HTML script that tells your viewers what action you want them to take next.
When people view your video, you can collect their names and emails with the Turnstile email collector using your own custom Marketo form. It’s easy to embed and share Wistia videos across multiple websites, and the player optimizes on-the-fly to deliver the best video quality with the least possible buffering.
Data to help you make decisions
Wistia allows you to see how people are watching your video, second-by-second. Each view has a heatmap that shows which parts were watched, rewatched, or skipped altogether. So that you can get the big picture, engagement graphs combine the data from all of your heatmaps and give you a broader idea of how people responded to your video.
Reach your viewers with relevant messages
Emails you capture through Wistia’s Turnstile email collector will go directly to your Marketo lead database. You can even use your custom Marketo forms right inside of your Wistia videos for easy syncing. Also, you can see which videos your leads are watching directly in the Marketo Activity Log. When you create smart lists based on video events, you're able to automatically send emails to people who only made it through half of your video, as well as to your biggest fans—the people you now know are watching everything you create.

Wistia and Marketo go together like peanut butter and jelly, like Sherlock and Watson, like... you get the idea. The great news is that you, too, can combine Marketo’s marketing automation with the persuasive power of Wistia’s video marketing and analytics. Here's how:
Customized videos without annoying ads
Customize the look and feel of Wistia’s video player with just a few clicks, and make it as free of distractions as you prefer. Your content, your way.
Add video thumbnail links to your emails
Video thumbnails are a great way to attract clicks. After all, who doesn’t love watching a video?
Collect leads when people watch your videos
Viewer information you gather with Turnstile goes straight to Marketo, so it's instantly ready for engagement.
Automatically send emails to viewers
Set up Marketo to automatically send an email to leads who watch at least 50% of a product video, or trigger an alert for a salesperson to contact leads who watch 100% of a video. The ball is in your court. Plus, Wistia’s heatmaps will help you determine what’s most compelling to your viewers.
