7 steps to pass marketing cloud certifications


And that would've been good advice!

But we need to go deeper into step 5...

We need to know the Marketing Cloud Project Process.


You need to know the Marketing Cloud Project Process

What happens if you don't know the Process?

  • Failing exams.

  • You'll feel lost.

  • Always be a beginner.

  • Feeling Overwhelmed.

  • Won't help a lot on projects.

  • Not able to answer questions.

  • Don't know what or how to study.

  • No confidence while taking exams.

  • Don't know how Marketing Cloud works.

  • Starting from scratch every time you study.

  • Surprised by questions when taking exams.

  • Never pick up on the patterns in Marketing Cloud.


That's not what you want.

You should be able to have your cake and eat it too.

Studying for a Marketing Cloud cert shouldn't stress you out.

Marketing Cloud follows a 5 step system.

You can do 500 Marketing Cloud projects, and every project will follow the same 5 Steps.

So... How do you pass a Marketing Cloud Exam?

Glad you asked, my friend.

Here's How to Pass Marketing Cloud Exams:

  1. Know the Marketing Cloud Project Process in depth.

  2. Use it to study for the cert.

But first, how did we arrive at this point?


How We Got Here...

A few years ago, I was doing a project with a luxury skincare company based out of New York.

We were on a Zoom call.

It was 6:30 PM on some random weeknight.

The consultant working on the project shared his screen.

He showed me what his team built in Marketing Cloud.

The list included:

  • Emails

  • Reports

  • Journeys

  • Automations

  • SQL Queries

  • Data Extensions

  • Attribute Groups

He showed me the whole Marketing Cloud picture.

The zoomed-out version.

It looked similar to projects I did in the past.

That's when it hit me! 💡

Every Marketing Cloud project works the same way!

Only 3 things change between Marketing Cloud projects:

  1. The Data

  2. The Real-World Scenarios

  3. The Company You Work With

But the process stays the same.

Every project you build in Marketing Cloud follows the same pattern.

Every task you do follows a step-by-step system.

I did a lot of Marketing Cloud projects before realizing all of this.

It's hard to describe how I felt in the moment.

I was happy and upset at the same time 😅

Before realizing this, I spent a lot of time feeling confused.

I didn't know how things worked together.

Marketing Cloud felt brand new every time I logged in.

Like I was starting from scratch.

But when that light bulb went off in my head 💡, everything became clear.

I started using the Marketing Cloud Project process in everything.
