With Microsoft Dynamics Marketing you can unleash your marketing potential. You can easily plan, execute, and measure campaigns from start to finish. Bring your marketing vision to life—engage customers across channels, build pipeline, and demonstrate the impact of your marketing.
Now you can spin up your own free 30 day trial of Dynamics Marketing – just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics/marketing-test-drive.aspx and we will get you started quickly.
Click either "Brand Manager" or "Campaign Manager" under "Microsoft Dynamics Marketing" (1) and then click "Start TestDrive"
You are presented with the TestDrive offering – a guided click-through showing some of the features in Dynamics Marketing. To start the test drive click the yellow dot (1) and follow the steps
After the test drive you can click "Start Free Trial" (1) to spin up a free 30 trial of Dynamics Marketing
Fill in the information (the below screens is from a danish trial experience, my native language – you'll be presented with dialogs according to your language)
When the information and authentication is done you are taken to the admin area of the Office 365 tenant.
You'll notice that the "Marketing" link in the blue navigation bar (2) is inactive.
You will need to access the Dynamics Marketing Settings page to set a default currency and accept the license agreement in order to activate the "Marketing" link
To access the Dynamics Marketing Settings page, open a new tab in your browser and type:
https://(your tenant name).marketing.dynamics.com
A minimum requirement is for your to provide the currency (3), and accept the license agreement (4). When that is done you can click "Submit" (5) without being presented with warnings
You are now ready to pick the role you'll play in Dynamics Marketing (eg. Media Buyer) (1) and start your Dynamics Marketing experience (2)
