Social Marketing Demand Fuels Marketo’s Second Quarter Success

Marketo Signs 2000th Customer, Enterprise Sales Grow 200 Percent Year-Over-Year

Marketo , a provider of marketing software, today announced that the company has signed its 2,000th customer, marking another quarter of tremendous growth in fueling the way companies of any size can market and sell more effectively.

"The way to reach today's potential buyers is through always-on, inherently social and relevant marketing engagement - whether you're a small company or a global enterprise," said Phil Fernandez, president and CEO of Marketo. "The strong demand we're seeing for Marketo shows that businesses need marketing software that's easy, powerful and complete."

Powerful Customer Acceleration

Marketo has added a quarter of its customers including several Fortune 500 companies - in the first half of 2012 alone. The company has had impressive enterprise growth of nearly 200 percent year-over-year. Marketo's new customers include Panasonic, Boston Children's Hospital, Vantiv, Inc., EZ Facility, GigaOm, Survey Monkey and Vantiv, Inc.

"Vantiv chose Marketo's comprehensive marketing automation and sales effectiveness solutions because of our complex lead management needs. With Marketo, we in the Vantiv Marketing team are building an integrated pipeline that lets us deliver warm, qualified leads through the pipeline for sales teams to close with high success rates," said Moira Tamayo, Senior Vice President, Corporate Marketing of Vantiv.

Only Marketing Automation Company Selected as Facebook Preferred Partner

During the first half of 2012, Marketo acquired Crowd Factory, the leading social campaign management platform. No other marketing automation or social media marketing product offers this degree of integration, visibility and synergy between social campaign applications and traditional digital and offline marketing activities. In addition, Marketo was the only marketing automation vendor selected by Facebook's Preferred Marketing Developer Program. Facebook noted Marketo's unique capabilities and ongoing high-standard of excellence.

Strong Demand for Analytics Product to Prove ROI

Sales of Marketo's powerful Revenue Cycle Analytics product has grown at a rate of more than 200% year-over-year, while overall install-base sales more than doubled in the past year. This growth in product add-ons clearly demonstrates the tremendous value Marketo customers are finding in the company's rapid pace of innovation.

Marketo Fuels Growth Overseas

Despite headwinds in the European economy, Marketo increased its EMEA customer base, growing 50% more in the first half of 2012 than over the previous six months. The company has significantly expanded its European presence since opening its regional headquarters in Dublin in 2011. Marketo will announce further international expansion developments later this summer.

Industry Recognizes Marketo's Leadership

In June, Marketo was featured in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner's Magic Quadrant for CRM Lead Management. "We see our position in the Leaders Quadrant by Gartner as confirmation of our ability to help companies large and small grow revenue faster - which in turn has made us the fastest-growing company in our market," said Fernandez.

Additionally, Marketo was named a top marketing solution by thought leader Paul Greenberg on the CRM Watchlist, acknowledged by its customers and recognized for excellence in social media marketing.
