Marketo (NASDAQ: MKTO) said that the American Kennel Club (AKC) selected Marketo´s Dialog Edition to enable them to listen and engage with dog owners in real-time.
By leveraging Marketo, the AKC can interact with club members based on individual online behaviors to deliver personalized content that promotes responsible dog ownership and helps people better enjoy their pets.
The AKC recently launched Woofipedia, a content-rich community site aimed to engage, entertain, and educate a younger, online-centric demographic of dog lovers. With Marketo, the AKC can understand what people love to discuss and learn most about their dogs on Woofipedia, and then extend two-way conversations with community members across other channels.
The American Kennel Club is a registry of purebred dog pedigrees in the United States. Beyond maintaining its pedigree registry, the AKC also offers competition events and educational content on dog ownership, training and services in an effort to promote responsible ownership by helping owners find the right dog for them and discover more things to enjoy with their dogs.
