New Marketing Automation Options for Small Business in the VEST Report

Customer Experience Matrix

The system has an impressively broad scope, adding full Web site creation to the usual all-in-one mix of email, lead scoring, landing pages, and CRM. While GreenRope is new to the VEST report, the company itself was founded in 2008. It creates email templates with personalization and embedded links but no dynamic content. Here are thumbnails of the others.

Marketo Aims to Simplify Demand Generation

Customer Experience Matrix

Functionally, it covers all the demand generation bases: outbound email, landing pages, Web site monitoring, lead scoring, multi-step nurturing programs, prospect database, analytics, Salesforce.com integration. It even adds A/B testing for landing pages, which you don’t see everywhere. The system can also add the lead to a Salesforce.com database, assign or change the owner in Salesforce.com, and create a Salesforce.com task. These templates can include variables selected from the Marketo database for personalization.

Customer Experience Matrix

Optify was founded in 2008 and launched its original product, a search engine optimization (SEO) tool, about a year later. The biggest obvious difference (if you ignore HubSpot’s $100 million or so in venture capital funding) is that HubSpot offers its own blogging and Web content management, while Optify provides WordPress and Drupal plug-ins for visitor tracking and landing pages.

Customer Experience Matrix

Market2Lead offers the usual list of demand generation functions: outbound email, Web forms and landing pages, automated lead nurturing, integration with sales, and campaign return on investment analysis. Market2Lead’s approach to Web pages is more flexible: users can either build and serve Web templates within Market2Lead, or they can embed Market2Lead tags in externally-hosted pages. Sales force contacts are, of course, captured through two-way integration Salesforce.com and other sales automation systems. But it’s just fine.
