more prospects. With Marketo Lead Management, Acteva has increased the volume of its marketing
activities by 300%, doubled its landing page conversion rate, and generated signicant revenue through a
new channel partner program, which would not have been possible without Marketo.

“If we didn’t have Marketo, it would be like
being in a coal mine. We might have sent out
just one blanket email – if anything – but
Marketo already has the logic for segmentation
mapped out. It’s exible, so we can just map our
strategy on top of Marketo, and then it’s easy to
execute and we can get a campaign out the
door in an hour.
