The Boomtrain + Marketo partnership allows companies to develop deep individual relationships with customers at scale via marketing automation and predictive personalization


SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 3, 2015 — Boomtrain, a predictive personalization platform with machine intelligence at its core, today announced its integration with Marketo, the leading provider of engagement marketing software and solutions. In a marketing landscape dominated by cursory digital interactions between marketers and massive audiences, the Marketo-Boomtrain solution enables brands to develop deep understandings of individual people while fostering meaningful, 1:1 relationships over time.

Brands can now create unique relationships with each of their customers thanks to a combination of Boomtrain’s next-generation machine learning algorithms, Marketo’s automated campaign delivery, and their own first-party data. By analyzing how individual users interact with the brand’s content and products, Boomtrain is able to answer crucial questions about each person, including what their interests are, how they behave, and what compels them to take action.

As a result, marketers can automatically recommend the most relevant content and products to drive engagement metrics. Since Boomtrain’s personalization is powered by self-optimizing predictive algorithms, recommendations only improve over time; joint customers can then use the Marketo system to plug those hyper-relevant recommendations directly into their email and on-site campaigns. The joint solution is available through Marketo LaunchPoint®, the most complete marketing solutions ecosystem, enabling marketers to manage and scale individual relationships whether they have 10,000 or 10 million customers.

“Mass marketing is becoming obsolete, and marketers need to realize that if they want to stay competitive, they have to put individuals first,” said Nick Edwards, co-founder and CEO of Boomtrain. “Our vision at Boomtrain is to make every step of the entire audience journey more personal and relevant for every user. With Marketo, we’re able to optimize the delivery of these experiences across channels, putting us both in a perfect position to transform how marketers do their jobs and propel excellence in brand communications.”

Publisher and e-commerce clients using Boomtrain regularly see 50 percent to 100+ percent increases in engagement metrics, including click-through-rates, page views, time on site, and conversions. Current joint customers of Boomtrain and Marketo include Forbes Media and Outreach Media, among others.

“Boomtrain’s key learnings, combined with the Marketo platform, are preparing us for a new landscape of truly individualized messaging, in an age where our users expect relevant, personal communications across the board,” says Liz Walsh, Brand Marketing Director, Forbes Media.

“Regardless of the size of their company and industry, every marketer in the world can now market specifically to a person’s unique behavior and deliver the right message at the right time for maximum returns,” said Mike Stocker, Director of Business Development at Marketo. “Our partnership with Boomtrain allows us to provide a smarter engagement marketing platform. We’re excited that Boomtrain is part of our LaunchPoint ecosystem and look forward to driving success for many more customers through the partnership.”
