Account Based Marketing (ABM)

For B2B companies that sell complex, high-ticket items to enterprise accounts, Account Based Marketing (ABM) provides a disciplined, systematic approach to orchestrating customized communication across many stakeholders within an account increasing the likelihood of a win by as much as 80% over normal sales approaches.

However, ABM is very complex and difficult to execute correctly. It requires the alignment of the goals and commitments of Sales and marketing, the careful selection of accounts and key roles, lot’s of customized and personalized content, and fully integrated tech stack for reliable reporting and insights.

ABM Nurture Campaigns Operations

An ABM nurture campaign is the orchestration of a series of email sequences, each targeting a specific persona with customized and personalized messaging and content, with the goal of moving each persona towards a willingness to meet with sales.

Why It is Critical

Business offerings tend to fall in one of two categories: high volume/low complexity products or service offerings, and low volume/high complexity products or services.

Traditional mass marketing was designed to market the first--high volume/low complexity products and services. Messaging doesn’t need to be customized or personalized--just target a group of potential customers and blast them with the same message over and over again until they buy.

Obviously, this doesn’t work very well today--people can block calls and texts, unsubscribe from emails and otherwise reduce noise. Governments as well as device makers are now adding more and more privacy protection features and laws to protect individuals from unwanted mass marketing noise.

When it comes to complex offerings, mass marketing is even less effective since it is a sledge hammer where a scalpel is required. It requires orchestrating sales and marketing across a large number of key stakeholders --sometimes as many as 17 to 23 different stakeholders within a single enterprise account.

ABM provides a powerful and effective strategy for providing highly customized and personalized information, based on the type of account and the role of the individual recipient, thereby better addressing their key concerns and needs, leading to more interest, engagement and eventual willingness to speak with Sales.

However, winning these large marquee accounts requires a great deal of effort, collaboration across teams and departments, senior management commitment, patience, and money.

SOMAmetrics has designed a package of services to help you manage the complexities of executing your ABM programs to achieve a higher success rate.
