Before you start:
- Technically, RollWorks can only import Static Lists from Marketo. However, if you want to import Smart Lists from Marketo, this guide will provide additional steps you can take to convert your Marketo Smart Lists into Static Lists that can be imported to RollWorks: to accomplish this you run a batch Smart Campaign in Marketo that will sync your Smart List into a Static List on a regular cadence.
- The Marketo Integration data sync is scheduled daily at 12:00am UTC.
We recommend a minimum of 1000 unique email addresses
We strongly suggest that your contact lists synced from Marketo have at least 1,000 unique email addresses for optimal performance. Even though you may be able to run a contact targeting campaign with 100 unique emails that match a cookie this audience is too small to yield optimal reach and ad performance. 🔎 Learn more about how Contact Lists work here.
Step 1. Configure your 'Smart List', 'Static List', and 'batch Smart Campaign' in Marketo
- Log in to Marketo
- Find the 'Smart List' that you want to import to RollWorks or Create a new 'Smart List'
- Create a new 'Static List'
- Create a new 'Smart Campaign' to sync your 'Smart List' with your 'Static List'
Create Advanced Smart List Logic as follows (1 and 2) or (3 and 4)
- Member of Smart List -> Lead: [in] [Static List]
- Member of List (Static) -> Lead: [not in] [Smart List]
- Member of List (Static) -> Lead: [in] [Smart List]
- Member of Smart List -> Lead: [not in] [Static List]
- Add three flow steps to your Smart Campaign:
- Schedule the batch Smart Campaign to run daily at 11:00 pm UTC (one hour before the Marketo data syncs to RollWorks at 12:00 am UTC).
Step 2. Import your Marketo Static List to RollWorks
- Click 'Import Lists'
- Select the Marketo Static lists you wish to import to RollWorks and click Done.

Marketo Contact Lists FAQ
What is the minimum amount of emails required to run a Marketo-based contact targeting campaign?
We strongly suggest that your contact lists synced from Marketo have at least 1,000 unique email addresses for optimal performance. Even though you may be able to run a contact-targeting campaign with 100 unique emails that match a cookie this audience is too small to yield optimal
reach and ad performance.
Why is the contact list size in RollWorks different than the list size in Marketo?
The contact list size that surfaces in RollWorks has passed an email validation process. It’s possible that your Marketo Contact List has some invalid emails, for example, an email format not recognized, in that event RollWorks will not ingest the contact and the resulting imported contact list size in RollWorks will be smaller than the source contact list in Marketo.
