Marketo for Zoho CRM

Marketo is a marketing automation tool that allows you to score your leads based on specified criteria and determine which prospects are most likely to convert. A tight-knit integration between your CRM and Marketo helps you plan sales and marketing activities to nurture these high-value leads and maximize the amount of new business your team can win.

The Marketo extension for Zoho CRM not only helps you synchronize leads from Marketo but also helps you manage them within Zoho CRM. You can easily synchronize leads on a daily or weekly basis with a built-in scheduler.

Installing the extension

You can either go to the Zoho Marketplace and install the extension, or log in to your Zoho CRM account to install.

To install the extension from Zoho CRM:
  1. Navigate to Setup > Marketplace > All.
  2. Under All Extensions, browse for and click Marketo.
    The details about the extension will be available.
  3. Click Install.
  4. Agree to the terms of service and click Install.
  5. In the following screen, confirm the login user, agree to the terms of service, and click Continue to Install.

  6. Choose one of the following, then click Confirm:
    1. Install for admins only - The extension will only be installed in CRM for users with administrator profiles.
    2. Install for all users - The extension will be installed in CRM for all users.
    3. Choose profiles - The extension will be installed in CRM for manually chosen users. Choose this option, click Confirm, then select the desired profiles.
      The extension will be installed automatically for the specified users.

  7. In the pop-up, enter the Base URL, Client ID and Client Secret to authorize with your Marketo account.


To obtain the Marketo Client ID and Client Secret
  1. Log in to your Marketo account and click Admin > Integration > Launch Point.
  2. In the Installed Services page, select the service that needs to be integrated with Zoho CRM, or create a new service by following the instructions provided by Marketo.
  3. Click View Details.
    Client ID and Client Secret for that particular application will be displayed. Copy this detail and paste them in the Extensions Details page.
To obtain the Marketo Base URL
  1. Log in to your Marketo account and click Admin > Integration > Web Services.
  2. In the Web Services page, go to REST API.
  3. Copy the URL present in Endpoint and paste that in the Extensions Details page.

Configuring extension settings

Once the extension is installed, you will need to set up the extension configuration based on your business requirements. Configuration involves defining the synchronization settings to sync Marketo contacts with Zoho CRM's Leads or Contacts modules and Marketo campaigns with Zoho CRM's Campaigns module respectively. These configurations are made in the Marketo webtab.

To configure the synchronization settings:
  1. Go to the Marketo module.
    Setup page will open.
  2. In Sync Settings, select Bulk or Selective.
    Bulk sync synchronizes all of your contacts, while selective sync allows you to choose particular contact lists to synchronize.
  3. In Sync Type, select One Way or Both Ways.
    One-way sync brings Marketo contacts into your Zoho CRM modules or vice versa, but not both. Both-ways sync simultaneously moves data between Zoho and Marketo.

  4. In Sync Behaviour, select Marketo to Zoho CRM or Zoho CRM to Marketo.
  5. In Conflict Behaviour, select CRM always wins or Marketo always wins.
    If CRM Always wins is chosen, new Marketo records that are already existing in Zoho CRM will not synchronize, preventing Marketo data from overwriting existing CRM records.
  6. If you enable scheduled sync, choose whether you want the sync occurrence to be daily or weekly.
  7. Click Next.
  8. In the Marketo Mappings section, select where you want the Marketo data to be housed in Zoho CRM. Choose between Contacts or Leads module of Zoho CRM to which the Marketo contacts must be stored in.

  9. In the Merge Fields section, you can add Marketo fields and its corresponding Zoho CRM fields to define where the data needs to be placed after sync. The default fields will be synced even if merge fields are not chosen, and they cannot be altered.
  10. Click Sync Now.

Once the synchronization is done, all the details of the synchronization happened will be displayed on the Dashboard. You can even synchronize manually by clicking Sync Now on the dashboard.

Under Reports, all the campaigns sent using your Marketo account will be listed along with their details. When you click on a campaign listed, a pop-up will show up with details of that specific campaign like sent, opened, and clicked, etc. The sync settings can be altered in the Settings tab.

Accessing synchronized data in Zoho CRM

You can track the campaigns of every contact in Zoho CRM associated with Marketo in their Marketo Recent Activities related list. Similarly, the email activities of all the contacts in every campaign can be tracked individually in the Campaigns module.

To track campaigns of a contact:
  1. Go to the Contacts or Leads module in Zoho CRM.
  2. Open the desired contact whose campaign activity needs to be tracked.
    All the campaigns that this contact is associated with for the latest 7 days will be listed in its
    Marketo Recent Activities related list.

The activity count of the campaigns listed will be displayed. When we click on the count, the details of the actions done, such as sent, opened, clicked, and bounced, will be shown.

To track a campaign:
  1. Go to the Campaigns module in Zoho CRM.
    All of your trigger campaigns from Marketo will be listed.
  2. Open a campaign.
  3. In its Email Activities related list, all the contacts associated with this campaign will be listed.

The activity count of the campaigns listed will be displayed. When we click on the count, the details of the actions done like sent, opened, clicked, and bounced will be shown.
