Goodbye, Nightmare Leads.
Hello, Dream Clients.
The ABC’s of ABM
Account-Based Marketing moves your focus away from nightmare leads over to dream clients, from what keeps you up at night to what gets you up in the morning, from incremental gains to lasting success.
Account-Based Marketing is a proactive client-acquisition strategy that focuses on the highest-value accounts in your niche. It makes Marketing and Sales work closely together to identify key targets, create fully personalized buying experiences, and nurture long-term relationships. Done well, ABM will deliver a higher return on investment than any other B2B marketing strategy.

The Six-Step Process
Find Your Targets
Your new buyer persona is not a persona, it’s a robust organization. Use owned and third-party business intelligence to define your ideal targets based on key strategic factors such as revenue potential, influence on the market, and long-term perspective. Companies that meet these parameters are the ones you want to go after.
Know Your Targets
A personalized approach is key to success in Account Based Marketing. To personalize, you first have to gain a clear picture of your target audience. In this case, the target organization. Who are the decision-makers, how do they make decisions, what are their priorities? The more you know, the better.
Speak Their Language
Use your knowledge of your target account’s needs to tailor engaging and helpful messaging. Engage all relevant decision-makers/influencers and appeal to their biggest pain points. This approach helps build trust as you offer your thoughtful solution to their problem.
Choose Your Channels
You have the content, you need the medium. Think about which channels your decision-makers are most likely to use. Then think about which channels provide the right context for your offers. Find the overlap. This is where you want to reach them with account-based marketing.
Align and Coordinate
It’s go-time. Make sure that all of your efforts are well-coordinated across teams and channels. Leverage CRM and marketing automation tools to execute account-based marketing campaigns more smoothly and efficiently.
ABM – Test, Measure, Optimize
ABM is an iterative process. Test, measure, and optimize your efforts along the way to minimize expenses and maximize results. Keep track of individual campaigns, account-level analytics, and overall return on investment to get the whole picture.
