Zaptitude’s Good Influence platform, now integrated with the Marketo engagement marketing platform offers marketers an opportunity to turn customers into advocates through the power of referrals.
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) August 04, 2015
Zaptitude, the company dedicated to helping businesses maximize sales through customer referrals with its patent-pending, cloud-based platform, Good Influence™, today announced that it has joined the Marketo LaunchPoint® ecosystem. This partnership provides Marketo users with full integration of their Marketo CRM data into Good Influence referral marketing toolset. This gives marketers the opportunity to:
*Access full, closed-loop reporting within Marketo from social share to referral, and all the way through to conversion.
*A/B test multiples campaigns, creatives and incentives to see the how each performs within Marketo.
*Instantly add new leads generated by Good Influence campaigns to Marketo.
Good Influence was developed with a unique purpose: to help organizations use the positive influence of existing customers to drive new customers. The platform, which is fueled by a patent-pending technology, combines the power of traditional, social and digital media to give businesses the tools to encourage referrals across all channels and then accurately attribute conversions.
Despite that fact that studies show that 65 percent of all new business comes from referrals, 72 percent of marketers don’t include referral marketing in their plans today. With Good Influence now fully integrated into Marketo, users will be able to incorporate referral marketing into their digital marketing plans.
“By integrating the Good Influence platform seamlessly with Marketo, we’ve given marketers the opportunity to close the loop on their referral marketing campaigns,” says Zaptitude CEO, Dan Lynn. “We know that 83 percent of consumers are willing to refer after a positive experience, yet only 29 percent actually do. By adding Good Influence to the marketing stack, marketers are giving their customers the tool they want to spread the word about the products they love – and they’ll be able to track the impact of those referrals, end to end, thanks to this integration.”
