Pardot Marketing Automation Strategy Workshop

Getting the most out of your Pardot Implementation

Ideally getting the most out of your Pardot investment should involve:

  • Proof of revenue attribution showing Marketing’s influence on Sales.
  • Steady stream of highly qualified sales-ready leads being sent to Sales from Marketing for follow up and closing deals.
  • End-to-end lifecycle of each prospect with visibility to Marketing and Sales showing exactly where the prospect is in the marketing and sales funnel at all times.
  • Leads and Contacts (including dormant Customers) that surface (or resurface) as showing new and recent buying intent.
  • Array of conditions and automations that identify qualified leads and triggers surfacing qualified prospects to lead dashboards with new lead notifications.
  • Scalable, comprehensive, and effective marketing campaign architecture that includes multiple channels and methods that targets each persona with timely, appropriate, and personalized messaging.
  • Nurture email marketing sequences that promote your brand and product/service offerings while qualifying or disqualifying prospects.
  • New customer onboarding email marketing sequences.
  • Capturing new prospects into the database with clear tracking of Lead Source and all marketing engagement touch points.

Sounds too good to be true? Well the reality is that most companies using Pardot never see a fraction of those benefits because Pardot only does a small part of that out-of-the-box, and most companies haven’t engaged thoroughly enough with a qualified Pardot Consulting Agency or Pardot Consultant (or engaged with the wrong agency or consultant).

Realizing those types of benefits from your Marketing Automation Platform (MAP) takes some time, but more importantly requires developing an end-to-end strategy for lead generation and lead management, and should involve lead nurturing and qualification and an approach including marketing-to-sales hand-off of highly Marketing Qualified Leads (MQL) that have either A) shown recent purchase intent, or who B) fit your ideal target customer profile and have recent engagement at any level.
