Getting permission to use Pardot stories
You, your employer, and your customer (if you’re a consultant) must be willing to publicly share any stories you submit. Your customer does not have to be present to accept the award, but they have to grant permission to you for the public mention of their company name and story in reference to the award.
We realize that may create some barriers to submitting a Pardot story, so here are some considerations for those situations:
- Let the company or client know what’s in it for them. Winning a ParDreamies award is a great way to show that a company is innovative and forward thinking. It also provides an easy publicity opportunity and gets the company name in front of thousands of business executives and potential employees.
- Leave the company name out of the story. Including an impressive enterprise-level company name definitely makes a story stronger, but your story is probably solid without it. You can say something like “an enterprise-level company in the insurance industry” if you cannot get permission to use a company name publicly.
Flex your Pardot knowledge: Pardot Trivia Party
After a day of learning at our pre-conference ParDreamin’ 2021 workshops, join us to show off your brain powers. We’ll gather virtually to play Pardot Trivia and enjoy healthy competition and networking opportunities.
The Pardot Trivia party is open to all ParDreamin’ attendees, and it’s taking place during the pre-conference festivities on Tuesday, October 26. We encourage ParDreamin’ Pre-Conference Training Workshop attendees to stick around after the workshops to use their newly gained knowledge and maybe win prizes.
