Demandbase today announced that its real-time identification technology is now connected with Marketo, the cloud-based marketing software platform. The Demandbase Platform – which includes modules for Company Targeted Advertising, Website Content Personalization, Web Analytics Enhancements, and Online Forms – now easily plugs in to Marketo landing pages and lead capture forms, to enable personalized offers and shorter, more precise forms. Because Demandbase can identify the company of otherwise anonymous web visitors in real-time, the business attributes of the visitor are known before a page is rendered or a form is filled out. The Demandbase connector for Marketo improves lead segmentation, scoring and routing – without sacrificing detailed visitor information – dramatically improving conversion rates.
“One of the biggest barriers to effective online marketing is converting web traffic into qualified leads,” said Robin Bordoli, vice president of partner ecosystems and strategic alliances at Marketo. “By coupling Demandbase’s targeting and personalization capabilities with the Marketo platform, our customers can increase the quality of their customer data, provide more targeted and personalized offers, and ultimately drive stronger revenue results.”
The Demandbase connector for Marketo brings the power of real-time intelligence about otherwise anonymous visitors – from the first visit to the customer site – to Marketo customers, eliminating the need for lengthy forms, while also improving customer engagement and lead capture. Since Demandbase provides the critical company attributes about a web visitor, it means fewer questions are necessary at the time of a form-to-conversion activity on the website, resulting in lower site abandonment. And, because nearly 20 percent of data entered into forms is incorrect and more than 80 percent of people have reported lying on forms, data quality is significantly improved through Demandbase.
“Increasing the volume of overall leads that a company is selling to their target audiences is critical to maximize the impact of what a powerful marketing automation platform like Marketo can do,” said Greg Ott, CMO of Demandbase. “Now, with the Demandbase connector for Marketo, businesses can optimize this lead capture from the start, driving more and better qualified leads, and enabling sales and marketing teams to focus on their most scalable programs to increase revenue.”
Demandbase’s targeting and personalization platform plugs in to a customer’s existing online marketing tools, such as CMS, CRM, advertising exchanges, live chat, and marketing automation, giving all of these tools a consistent view of the company attributes in real time. The platform is built on patented real-time identification technology and a proprietary data management platform. Learn more about Demandbase’s integration into marketing automation here.
