Marketo helps marketers master the art and science of digital marketing. Using Marketo’s marketing automation module, users can set up automated campaigns in a matter of minutes. Marketers can set up campaigns that deliver streams of relevant content that start the instant a new email address is captured and continue throughout the entire customer lifecycle.
Marketo supports batch and real-time triggered emails that can be activated by behaviors like web visits, form completions, social shares or even social media check-ins. It also comes with a visual drag and drop interface which is very easy to use and does not require users to possess HTML skills to create professional email templates. On top of that, email marketing is relatively easy to do, as users can send emails based on actions, timing, or a series of steps that are pre-defined.
Pardot beats Marketo with its comprehensive all-in-one interface, seamless integration with other CRMs and versatile capabilities.
