Using Litmus with Marketo

The Litmus integration with Marketo lets you build and test emails without manually copying and pasting code between tools, saving time and streamlining your email workflow.

NOTE: Litmus Marketo integrations are available on Enterprise plans only.

Connect Litmus to Marketo

Connect Marketo to Litmus to automatically sync your code and assets while you build in Litmus Builder, easily import an email for final pre-send review and testing, and see an integrated view of the insights that matter most from both Marketo & Litmus. 

NOTE: You will need Administrative rights on your Marketo account to create the setup. Account Holders, Admins, and Full users can complete the sync in Litmus.

NOTE: Syncing to Campaigns will use the From name and email address of the Litmus user who created the email. Please be aware that subsequent syncs and saves will continue to use these details and will overwrite any change made in Marketo. Syncing to Marketo Templates will not transfer this information.

Integrated insights from Litmus and Marketo

The Litmus Integrated Insights Report combines email performance data from your ESP with subscriber engagement data from Litmus into a single view. These combined powerful insights make it easier than ever to create more personalized experiences, optimize design and development, and improve campaign results. Email Performance Indicators automatically surface emails that are underperforming or overachieving with visual identifiers to demonstrate why. With suggested next steps automatically outlined for you, you can confidently forge ahead and focus on driving results. 

IMPORTANT: The Integrated Insights Report for Marketo and weekly digest leverage the Marketo Bulk Extract API, which has a daily limit of 500MB per day (Litmus will use a maximum of 250MB per day). If your Marketo account sends to more than 3 million recipients per month, your first Integrated Insights sync may take several days to complete. If you send to more than 15 million recipients per month, please contact our support team at before initiating the report.
