What is Account Based Marketing (ABM)?

ABM is a marketing growth strategy, drawing on the same techniques that underpin the best enterprise sales strategies.

ABM focuses on closing, alongside sales, really high quality business opportunities backed with high levels of insight. These opportunities are the companies you really want to work with, in contrast to so much B2B marketing today, which has focused on delivering high volumes of MQLs (Marketing Qualified Leads) to feed the sales funnel.

This traditional approach, also called Strategic ABM, works by treating each account as its own market and it can deliver significant growth within new and existing accounts.

The new ABM

Until now, ABM has been resource-intensive, treating each account as a market of one, so its value has been limited to just a very small number of accounts. Radiate B2B is focused on scaling ABM strategies so that the majority of companies can take advantage of ABM's benefits.

Many of the business leaders we talk to already know something about ABM. Almost all are enthusiastic about it.

This should not be a surprise. After all, 84% of companies who use it, say ABM delivers higher ROI than any other type of marketing.

Our forecast? Massive return on investment. We’ve seen examples of a 200% increase in conversions from well run ABM strategies.

How do I start?

It starts with finding answers to the right questions. Radiate B2B will work with you to answer:

  • “Which companies would I most like to do business with?”
  • “Who do I need to be in contact with at those companies?”
  • “What do I need to know about those people and those companies?”
  • “What should my communications plan be for each of those contacts?”

Answering these questions will put you in charge of the most high-performing marketing strategy your business has ever seen. And the results will show:

  • More – and bigger – contracts, and you’ll win them faster
  • Closer, more lucrative long-term relationships with your best customers
  • Get Marketing and Sales work together, in alignment, toward the same goals.

Let Radiate B2B show you how to bring all this together.
