The MarDreamies Awards are a big deal for marketers on the Salesforce platform. That’s because they’re the ONLY award of their kind to honor marketers for building innovative solutions using Salesforce tools.
That’s right. It’s the only opportunity Salesforce customers and consultants who wear marketing hats have to showcase and get recognized in a public forum for their brilliant work.
And we marketers are used to being low on the priority list when it comes to getting recognized for the work we do. Well, the MarDreamin’ team is working to turn that around.
Here’s the lowdown on the 2022 MarDreamies Awards.
From ParDreamies to MarDreamies
Yes, we know this is a weird year for the conference formerly known as ParDreamin’.
With Pardot rebranding to Account Engagement and moving under the Marketing Cloud umbrella, it was only fitting to expand the conference to be inclusive to all marketers on the Salesforce platform.
This year, the MarDreamin’ team is excited to bring content from marketing pros across Salesforce to provide actionable insights and hands-on learning for every type of marketer.
Hence, the conference was renamed MarDreamin’ and the MarDreamies awards are following that same format.
How to win a MarDreamies Award
So how do you get your hands on one of these babies?
Think about your proudest marketing moments from the last year. Then, jot down your answers to the following questions:
- What challenges were you looking to solve?
- How did you get there?
- And what were the results?
Use the form on this page to share your solution stories with the team. Remember, you can include media with your submission. For instance, including a PDF with screenshots of the solution or a short video where you talk about the work you do (doesn’t need to be perfect) can help your submission to stand out.
MarDreamies Award entries are due by Oct 26, 2022.
