Pardot Goodies from the Salesforce IdealExchange

This past year has been a great year for Pardot Admins everywhere. With each new release, Pardot has grown in functionality and has also become more integrated with Salesforce. This is fantastic as it allows for tighter data control, better personalization when communicating with prospects, improved user management processes. and an overall better user experience. In the wake of the new year, check out the newest Pardot features and updates on the Salesforce Spring 21 release notes to gain insights into what is coming in 2021.

As Pardot Admins, we often run into corners of the platform that require a little more creativity in order to solve a specific business need. Oftentimes, you can just “Google it” and voilà!

ParDreamin’ 2021 Recap

Last week was ParDreamin’ 2020, the first Pardot specific conference ever. The event brought together 3600+ members of the Pardot community from 65 countries for 4 days of content. Day 1 hosted five deep dive paid workshops led by Sercante experts. The free portion of the event took place on days 2 – 4 and comprised over 40 different types of sessions, including keynotes, panels, breakouts and (we believe) the first Pardot demo jam ever.

ParDreamin’ Day 4 Recap

Day 4 of ParDreamin’ kicked off today with a Demo Jam! Sercante’s own Celine Newsome and Mike Creuzer helped to lead us through 3-minute demos from our sponsors. The demo jam was, to our knowledge, the first ever Pardot focused demo jam. The chat was rowdy and fast and everyone loved the “golden hook” for sponsors who went over! That’s right, we cut off those who went over! Sercante was crowned winner by the attendees and we handed out Dragons to participants who chatted it up at the demo jam! It was a great, high energy session to start the 4th and final day of ParDreamin’!

The Official ParDreamin’ Guide For “Accidental” Pardot Admins

BY MARCOS DURAN

This year has been interesting to say the least. You might have just started your first marketing job that requires Pardot experience this year or maybe you ended up being the “accidental” Pardot admin that everyone is talking about on Twitter. Your title may not reflect your new marketing automation responsibilities (yet) but you have a new shiny toy to play with. Its name is Pardot, and, frankly, by the looks of it, you don’t know where to start.
