MO Pros Community Update

Hey MO Pros!

Thank you all for making this community a thriving and valuable place for everyone who joins.

The conversations have been amazing lately and I can’t wait to see more of you collaborate.

Now, on to the updates:

Over 590 community members!! 

Note: this data only goes through the beginning of March so it’s missing some of the latest members who joined).

We’ve averaged more than 119 members added per month since October which honestly is the most amazing thing… ever.

As always, I’m doing my best to find ways to continue supporting you all and all I ask is that you continue supporting each other and when you have time, share the community so we can continue to grow and learn together.

Did I miss something interesting? Share it on Slack!

PS: Yes, we have a blog. Yes, I want you all to be featured on it. Yes, if you have something to share I want to hear from you. Email me, let’s get your expertise out there! Need inspiration?

Here are some topics I would want to read:
– The most kickass workflow you ever built in (Hubspot, Marketo, Pardot, etc)
– The number one piece of advice to give anyone implementing (name the product)
– What it takes to be a consultant MOP
– Or any other thing you want to tell the MOPs world about!

This is all about surfacing questions that you might have missed. Reach out to the folks in Slack directly to help them out and be sure to check back often so you don’t miss out next time!

Hi there! Have any of you asked candidates to complete an exercise prior to bringing them on-site for interviews? I’m very used to asking candidates for portfolio samples, but would love to learn how folks have done this for Marketing Operations Manager (or Sr Marketing Ops Manager) with ~4-6 yrs of experience.

From @Kristen Keefer: Have you worked with BrightFunnel via Terminus? What are your thoughts vs Bizible?
@Kristen Keefer asked @Drew Smith about BrightFunnel via Terminus vs Bizible and some serious KNOWLEDGE was dropped. Read the entire thread in the #b2bchats channel before it disappears!

Thus far, those who have purchased the marketing operations playbook template continue to share their feedback and I can’t tell you how important that is to me. Also, special thanks to those who took the time to share it with their networks:
