Award Recognizes the Use of Social Technologies to Advance Corporate Goals

Marketo, the leader in revenue performance management, has been named as a finalist in the 2010 Forrester Groundswell Awards for its innovative “You Don’t Know Jack about Online Marketing” campaign. The interactive, online game, “You Don’t Know Jack About Online Marketing” was designed to increase leads and drive awareness through social media.

The Forrester Groundswell Awards honor excellent and effective use of social technologies to advance an organizational or corporate goal. The awards recognize social applications that illustrate the principles outlined in the Forrester Research books Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies (Harvard Business Press, 2008) and Empowered: Unleash Your Employees, Energize Your Customers, and Transform Your Business (Harvard Business Press, 2010).

Named a finalist in the “Business-to-Business Talking” category, Marketo’s “You Don’t Know Jack about Online Marketing” campaign centered on an interactive quiz game. Not only was the game a viral success, but it was featured as a game/training vehicle at the Online Marketing Summit. The game was used as a case study example for Marketo's Definitive Guide to Social Media eBook, increasing views of the game and reinforcing Marketo's ability to increase revenue performance through its marketing prowess and social media expertise.

During the first week alone, the “You Don’t Know Jack About Online Marketing” application received 3,318 page views and 142 tweets. At this point in the campaign, Marketo has generated more than 100 prospects, hundreds of inbound links and more than 200 tweets through the game.

“We are honored to be recognized by independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc., with one of the top awards in social media and marketing,” said Phil Fernandez, president and CEO of Marketo. “Marketo knows that social media is one of the biggest forces driving change in the buying landscape, and we are thrilled to be placed among the leading organizations employing groundbreaking and diverse social and mobile applications to improve marketing and sales effectiveness and improve revenue performance.”
