How to Seamlessly Merge Marketo Registration Forms and Sequel Webinar Components:
Now, let's walk through the step-by-step process of integrating Marketo and Sequel on your landing page:
- Begin by logging in to your Sequel.io Admin Dashboard and configuring the Marketo integration with Sequel.
- Copy the Sequel Integration script and strategically place it on your website, ideally in the same location where you typically embed Marketo forms.
- Ensure that you include the Marketo script on the same page, taking care to match it with your specific Marketo instance's domain.
- Design your landing page layout to accommodate both the Marketo form and the Sequel component. Create two separate div elements: one reserved for the Marketo form and the other for the Sequel component.
- Configure the placement of the Marketo form by inserting an empty div element with the id "mktoForm."
- For the Sequel component, add the code <div id="sequel_root"></div>, and make certain that it occupies the full width of the page for an immersive viewing experience.
- Create a Marketo form within your Marketo account, ensuring that it aligns with your branding and data collection needs.
- In the Sequel dashboard, select the specific event you want to link your Marketo form to, navigate to the Registration tab, and enable the "Third-party registration" option.
- Proceed to the CRM tab within Sequel and enter the required information, including the Marketo form ID, Marketo base URL, and Marketo Munchkin ID, exactly as they appear in your Marketo form settings.
- In the Embed tab of Sequel, locate and copy the code under "Marketo Form with Sequel."
- Paste this embed code anywhere on your landing page. To simplify future webinar creation, consider creating a CMS entry for this code, facilitating your marketing team's ability to add new webinars and copy the Sequel embed code with ease.
