In the quarter revenue increased 62% year-over-year and 14% sequentially to $22.5 million and other key metrics were well in line with our expectations and operating goals
Before I discuss the quarter I would like to take just a minute to welcome our new Public Investors who have chosen to join us on our journey to build a great and very valuable public company. I would also like to do a true heart full shout to each and every one of our employees in Marketo for the incredible role you have all played in the success to-date. We couldn’t have done it without each and one of you.
And finally I would like to thank our customers who have put their trust and confidence in our solution and our vision. I believe that our continuous success and growth confirms the customer is very much want to do business with an innovator that solely focused on building the industry’s best marketing platform. So those of new to Marketo let me quickly recap our vision. We provide the leading cloud based marketing software platform. One that is built to enable organizations to excel in modern relationship marketing. We serve a very large addressable market ranging from small business to the world’s largest global enterprises and across business-to-business and business-to-consumer industries ranging from technology to healthcare, business services, education, manufacturing, media and entertainment, telecom, financial services and consumer brands.
Our success is driven by a cash and commitment to our customer success and by at the stain track record of thought leadership and technology innovation that can only come from our singular focus on greeting great products from marketing professionals.
As you know the category we serve continues to be very dynamic and active. We historically owned the innovation for marketing software and as anything I believe that the moves we’ve seen in the marketplace over the last couple of quarters clears the path for us to continue to be that agenda setter and we expect to continue to drive in this large and very fast growing marketing software category.
On the call today we’ll touch on several elements of the growth strategy that we have articulated previously including an intense focus on customer acquisition across each of the broad markets we serve expanding revenue yield within our growing install base finding success in additional and adjacent markets and verticals in innovating to extend our marketing thought leadership.
Overall our business in the second quarter was very strong. I was particularly happy with the diversity of new customers we acquire during the quarter both small businesses and global enterprises across all of the geographies in which we sell and industries that we serve. And I am not taking anything away from our continued strength selling to small and medium business. I note that our quarter was particularly robust in the enterprise segment.
