DENVER, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ReadyTalk today announced the availability of the ReadyTalk for Marketo connector, which increases the accuracy of webinar-generated data and moves leads through the marketing and sales pipeline faster.
Marketo worked closely with ReadyTalk to meet the needs of customers who use ReadyTalk's web and audio conferencing and webinar services as a key component in marketing campaigns and lead generation programs.
"Webinars with engaging content are a critical part of the marketing mix for B2B marketers, and ReadyTalk has a well-earned reputation for being easy to use," said Robin Bordoli, vice president of partner ecosystem at Marketo. "But to realize the true value of webinars, you need to be scoring the attendees and capturing that within your core marketing operations to drive to more sales-ready leads faster. With this ReadyTalk and Marketo integration marketers can now get easily and instantaneously get richer insights into which are the right leads to deliver to sales."
The connector was designed for Marketo customers who want to leverage Marketo for webinar invitations, registration, confirmations, reminders, and timely follow-up while eliminating tedious manual processes. It allows marketers to:
- Use Marketo to promote and manage webinars so that when a prospect completes a Marketo registration form the data is automatically sent to ReadyTalk to register them for the event.
- Include a unique URL for each registrant to more accurately capture attendance status while preventing unwanted attendees from joining the event.
- Instantly record attendance status to avoid the time-consuming manual task of getting webinar data back into Marketo.
"As companies utilize marketing automation to grow revenue through demand generation campaigns, we recognized that there were pain points around managing the data from multiple platforms," said Beth Toeniskoetter, product marketing manager at ReadyTalk. "This integration is designed to improve the process of moving data between ReadyTalk and Marketo to decrease the number of steps in the marketing cycle, ultimately helping marketers grow revenue more quickly."
ReadyTalk for Marketo is free and available as a step within the Marketo Design Builder. For additional information, visit the ReadyTalk blog for details.
