I love Salesforce. I love being a Salesforce admin. I love that it’s been a great path for me to start working on actual developer skills. It’s pretty fantastic.
It’s also not all I do. In addition to that, I’m my team’s Certified Marketo Expert. I suggest to anyone that is a Salesforce admin for a company that uses Marketo – at least become familiar with it. The way they work together is good to know and can really help in the design of extremely robust data management plans.
It’s been a wild ride so far, and a lot of the challenges I had when I took the keys to my Production Org were the same that I had with Marketo. Getting the engine running again was maybe even more difficult with Marketo because there are so many more places where people can make things go terribly, terribly wrong.
So this May, I’ll be speaking at Marketo’s Marketing Nation Summit about how I audited our Marketo instance and got it running a bit more smoothly.
I don’t have all of the details yet. In fact, I’m still just barely scratching the surface of how I’d like to present, but it’s been on my mind. I’m excited for this opportunity, and I wanted to share it. I’ll keep updates coming, as they seem necessary.
And if you’re also a Marketo user going to Summit – hey, hit me up!
