The questions for AD0-E556 were last updated On Jun. 05, 2023

Question #1

An Adobe Marketo Engage Architect is integrating a Marketo Engage instance for a nonprofit client with two different third-party platforms. The requirements are outlined below:

Scenario 1: Automatically clone existing default programs on Marketo, build the email using

the RSS feed of blog section, and schedule the email on every Thursday.

Scenario 2: Before deleting any record on Marketo, push the data to "Donor System".

How should the Marketo Engage Architect approach the platform integration?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: B

The way that the Marketo Engage Architect should approach the platform integration is to use Email Scripting for scenario 1 and REST API for scenario 2. These methods will help the Architect to automate and optimize the processes of cloning existing default programs, building emails using RSS feed, scheduling emails, deleting records on Marketo, and pushing data to Donor System. Using Email Scripting for scenario 1 will allow the Architect to dynamically generate email content based on the RSS feed of blog section, instead of manually creating email assets. Using REST API for scenario 2 will allow the Architect to programmatically delete records on Marketo and push data to Donor System, instead of relying on manual or offline methods.

Question #2

An Adobe Marketo Engage Architect needs to audit an existing Marketo Engage instance. Upon inspection, more than 1000 fields that only live in Marketo Engage were created for a single use to collect information for a specific event, or ask a specific question during the registration of an event.

What should the Architect recommend to their client regarding field creation best practices?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

Creating a set of temporary program member fields and using them on local forms for every event that requires custom questions is a good way to avoid creating too many fields that only live in Marketo Engage. Adding the leads to a static list can help retain the data if needed.

Question #3

An Adobe Marketo Engage Architect starts their first day at their new job managing the Marketo Engage instance. When inspecting the instance, they notice that the sync to Salesforce was unusually slow and takes several hours to populate Salesforce campaign membership from Marketo Engage programs. Upon closer inspection, several errors occurred under the notifications of syncs timing out or hitting the concurrent limit.

Which three actions can the Architect take to help diagnose and address the problem around sync to Salesforce issues?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

Using campaign inspector and creating a smart list are two actions that can help diagnose the sync issues by identifying the number of sync to CRM flow steps and the records that have an empty CRM type. Checking the permissions in the CRM for the Marketo sync user profile can also help address the problem by ensuring that the sync user has the right access level. Counting the number of custom CRM fields or increasing the time between CRM and Marketo syncs are not helpful actions.

Question #4

A company implements Workspaces and Partitions for global regional marketing operations. They need to separate their Workspaces into North America, APAC, and EMEA regions as each region should not see the other region's marketing activities. They also have a Default Workspace. The Default Workspace has access to all Person Partitions. Each regional Workspace has access to their own regional Person Partition. The default dedupe key for the Unicorn Adobe Marketo Engage instance is email address.

A form that exists in the the North America workspace is filled out by a new person.

Which default behavior should be expected?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: B

The new person will be created in the North America Partition where the form exists because that is where the lead source is located. The Default Workspace has access to all Person Partitions but it does not determine where new leads are created.

Question #5

Refer to the case study.


Unicorn Fintech is a mobile-only financial-servicesstartup created by a consortium of consumer banks to resell savings, checking, loan, transfer/remittance, and other services from a secure smartphone app. The company is venture-funded, and plans to reach profitability before a planned IPO in two years.

Business issues and requirements

Marketing is responsible for acquiring new customers 0 through online, television advertising, and email campaigns, and for cross-selling new services to customers through IM, email, and in-app campaigns. Evaluating the success of these campaigns has been a persistent problem: although the company can track revenue by product line, it can't attribute those revenues to campaigns: for example, did a new loan come from onboarding a new customer, or by cross-selling a savings-account customer? Marketing currently uses

crude, manual tools and guesswork to evaluate the quality and lifespan of new leads, and even the deliverability of emails in its external campaigns. As a result, the department can't allocate spending to the most productive campaigns, or decide how much different touchpoints in multi-stage campaigns contribute to revenue. Operational processes to connect lead data to CRM and other databases are entirely manual.

Staffing and leadership

Unicorn has fewer than 200 employees, and roles aren't always defined in traditional ways. Since customer acquisition and cross-selling are primarily through electronic channels, Marketing and IT roles especially often overlap. The traditional Sales role falls entirely to Marketing, and IT is responsible for the Salesforce CRM system, Google Analytics, and a handful of third-party integrations. The CMO and CIO work closely together on most initiatives, and budgets are typically project-driven rather than fixed annually. Individual contributors to Marketing campaigns include the Marketing Operations Manager, responsible for lead scoring and analytics. Key IT contacts include the CRM Administrator and Web Developer. Incidental contributors are the Corporate Attorney, who signs off on opt-in/out and DMARC policies.

Revenue sources

Unicorn earns commissions on financial services delivered by the banking consortium through its apps, including fixed finders' fees for what the company calls "skips"-customers who initially engage with Unicorn, but then "skip" to receive services directly from a consortium bank. Unicorn needs to attribute revenue from these customers to its own campaigns; currently, it's impossible to attribute ROI to individual campaigns, or provide documentation to claim commissions on "skips."

Current and aspirational marketing technology

Current Marketing technology consists of Marketable,an open-source lead management solution supported by a set of spreadsheets and scripts developed in-house. Marketable offers lead tracking and source attribution, but not multi-touch source attribution. Unicorn Fintech Marketing has difficulty linking the different stages of customer campaign journeys, and relies on scripts to translate Marketable's "sales alerts" into next steps it could use in multi-touch campaigns. IT has worked out scripts to input Marketable qualified leads into Salesforce, but the system is brittle and often requires manual intervention.

Current campaign management processes

A typical email campaign:

* Addresses a purchased (for customer acquisition) or0 in-house (for cross-sell) list. Purchased lists range from 300,000 to 1.5 million addresses

* Is sent from multiple data centers in the US and Canada

* Includes an "unsubscribe" opt-out below the message

* Is static; there are no formula fields

* Uses no deliverability authentication, nor integration 0 with any email management platform.

All campaigns to date direct respondents to a single 0 landing page with the company's "all markets" message. More sophisticated targeting is a high priority.

Current lead management and attribution

Unicorn's lead-management process follows

Marketable's "out of the box" defaults: lead evaluation levels 1 through 3, lifecycle stages "unqualified" and "qualified." The qualification processes are manual, and highly subjective: Marketing staff classify leads according to prospect email responses, including free-form comments. "Sales" followup is by email forms prompting higher levels of engagement. The company intends to phase out Marketable and replace spreadsheets and scripts with native features of whatever solution set it adopts.

Attribution processes are binary: response to a campaign email or web visit is rated a success if it results in a sale: there is no success rating assigned to TV ads that result in web visits, for example. Cost are not allocated to individual campaigns.

The Marketing department plans to expand outreach to social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, in-house and third-party financial blogs), and wants to make sure it can assess the ROI of these channels, and the overall social media program.

Current governance processes

Currently, the Marketing department assigns content development and campaign management duties to team members on a campaign-by-campaign basis. All team members (and IT) have access to all assets and tools, which sometimes leads to duplication and conflicts. The CMO realizes that a more specialization will be necessary to support the social media campaigns, but hasn't decided on the optimal organizational model.

Input of qualified leads from Marketable into

Salesforce is by manual cut-and-paste, assisted by scripts; inconsistency of input practices across Marketing team members is a known problem; individual members have their own "go-to" fields: where one member might check "TV ad" as Lead Source, another would put that in the comments field.


The CMO's most important concerns are:

* The current solution has too many manual steps to scale with anticipated growth

* Without more sophisticated attribution, the company will overinvest in less productive campaigns, and underinvest in better ones

* In general, analytics integrations are manual, slow, and unreliable

* The current system completely misses "skips"-customers switching from the Unicorn app to consortium banks-an important source of revenue

* Documenting the value of Unicorn's Marketing processes is essential to the success of the planned IPO, and millions of dollars in stock valuation hangs in the balance.


The CIO is concerned primarily with:

* The amount of time his team spends patching up Marketing campaigns and CRM data transfers, at the expense of other, critical initiatives

* Quality and reliability of the Analytics information his team provides to Marketing


Marketing Operations staff concerns:

* Campaigns require so much work that they can't run as many of them as they need to

* Multi-touch cross-selling campaigns (for example, savings accounts to loans) with excellent margins, but no way to know which campaign touches perform best

* Getting swamped with manual record-keeping; for example, spreadsheet mistakes take hours to find and


* Poor integration with third-party tools for preparing, sending, and evaluating campaign materials, for


o Webhook not firing,

o Reaching API limit

o Synchronization errors with third-party tools and Salesforce

* Inadequate number of lead stages and qualification levels, making it difficult to evaluate lead value, especially in multi-touch campaigns

Despite the absence of an external Sales team,

Marketing Operations would like to improve the granularity of their lead tracking, including both lifecycle stages and quality levels, with "no score" and negative levels.

Unicorn and their Adobe Marketo Engage Architect want to update their current scoring for web-based behaviors. One area that is highlighted for changes are the forms. The goal is to avoid using one form score, and instead use 3 score values, depending on whether the form is low (+3); medium (+7), or high value (+15).

What is the most scalable way to build these changes?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: C

Building smart campaigns that trigger based on the appropriate form into the scoring program and adding the appropriate score value 'My Tokens' into the 'Change Score' flow step is the most scalable way to build these changes. This way, the score values can be easily updated and reused across different forms and programs. Updating the hidden behavioral score fields in each form or using 'Change Data Value' flow steps are not scalable solutions as they require manual updates and duplication.
