SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Perk.Com Inc. ("Perk" or the "Company"), a cloud-based mobile rewards platform provider, has selected Marketo (NASDAQ: MKTO), the leading provider of marketing software and solutions, to boost its brand awareness among app publishers and developers. The engagement of Marketo is expected to improve synergies between Perk's marketing efforts and sales, and gain further insights into the Company's marketing return on investment.
Perk caters to app publishers and developers through its Appsaholic Rewards SDK ("Appsaholic"), an extension that allows users to create a customizable rewards platform. Using this platform, publishers and developers can engage their audiences through gamification and monetize their apps.
The Company was seeking a solution that would help them educate developers and publishers on the benefits of using Appsaholic for rewards, while also providing a clear look into how Perk's marketing initiatives were performing. Marketo's ability to provide comprehensive data will enable the Company's sales team to obtain information on qualified prospective customers, optimizing Perk's marketing efforts.
"We were extremely impressed with how easy it was for a small team to increase productivity by leveraging Marketo," said Zach Redler, senior director of marketing at Perk. "We look forward to using Marketo as the foundation for continued growth and expansion of our community engagement activities."
