Considering a Marketo alternative?

Marketo is a marketing automation platform that allows businesses to manage and automate their tasks across multiple channels.

VBOUT is an excellent alternative to Marketo because it's an all-in-one tool that's easy to use and doesn't require consultancy or extensive training.

Here’s a comparison between Marketo and VBOUT which shows the difference between both in terms of features, pricing and onboarding.

Email marketing

VBOUT allows you to import and manage unlimited contacts into their platform, whereas Marketo charges you for a specific number of contacts and pricing increases as you add more.

Marketing automation

VBOUT’s automation builder has browser push notifications, which allow you to target your contacts as well as anonymous visitors with continuous updates about your company. Marketo doesn’t have this feature but allows you to create push notifications on mobile apps. If you need to create browser push notifications, you have to integrate it with a third party.

In addition, building automation workflows is simpler with VBOUT. Marketo’s platform is somewhat more complicated.

Social media

VBOUT has mass posting functionality, which allows you to upload a large number of social media posts using an excel file and schedule them all at once.. Another functionality you can take advantage of is custom posting, which enables you to set custom schedules to publish your posts recurrently or at different days and times. In addition, you can track hashtags and keywords to monitor your brand mentions on Twitter and Instagram and find posts relevant to your industry. You can also organize your social media profiles into groups. 

Marketo allows you to compose, schedule posts, and track them using the social calendar, but doesn’t have the functionalities presented below.
