Ever since you started this ABM journey, everyone’s been recommending you a new “must-have” tool for your tech stack. Something has to give, right? Or perhaps you’re not sure if your tech stack will “stack-up” when it really matters.
The ABM MarTech space can be overwhelming. We help you answer questions such as:
You can definitely do it yourself.
But we find that due to the complexity of ABM campaigns, it’s more than just about picking a few campaigns and running some ads against them.
And especially if it’s your first time running an ABM campaign, it is going to take some time and digging around to get things set up correctly.
We’ve been through the thick of it and have executed a hundred or so campaigns… and in the early days, we made tons of mistakes. At a minimum, we can make sure you don’t make the same mistakes running your ABM campaign. Especially if it’s your pilot and the leadership team has its eyes on the outcome.
Ensuring your sales and marketing team are aligned is pivotal to ensuring your ABM campaign runs successfully. The reason why is because an ABM campaign is a lot more complex and involves your sales and marketing team performing different types of outreach as part of an ABM sequence.
If your sales and marketing team are not aligned, it is very likely that any accounts that you engage may well receive very mixed messages and communication from your team.
An account-based marketing agency helps you develop a cohesive ABM campaign that is suitable for your team and your target market. In many instances, organisations are a bit confused on where to start and how “big” they have to go for their ABM campaign.
An experienced account-based marketing agency, generally have the processes and knowledge to define ABM for your organisation, help you design your ABM pilot campaign and create a roadmap to scale your ABM efforts. In addition to that, an account-based marketing agency is also a great mediator that can bring the sales and marketing team together to assist in executing an ABM campaign as well.
This is a hard one. We know recently there has been a lot of content floating around about “ABM is just B2B marketing” or that “ABM is just good marketing”.
The truth is, there are definitely a lot of overlaps between ABM and B2B marketing, but ABM has a stronger focus on marketing in the enterprise space and it might not be the best approach for the SMB market (but last time we checked, there are definitely B2B companies targeting and selling to SMBs).
The other big difference between ABM and traditional B2B marketing is that ABM shifts the focus from lead generation to account targeting and outreach. This generally involves a more focused and strategic approach on how your marketing activities operate.
Not at all!
Your ABM initiatives can live right alongside your traditional demand-gen strategy. In fact, having a strong demand generation foundation can play a big part in helping you roll out your ABM campaign.
As your organisation begins to mature it’s ABM practices, you might find yourself having two go to market strategies (ABM and demand-gen), custom made with different objectives in mind.
