Account Based Marketing (ABM) is a marketing growth strategy, drawing on the same techniques that underpin the best enterprise sales strategies.
ABM focuses on closing, alongside sales, high quality business opportunities backed by high levels of insight and personalised messaging. These opportunities are the companies you really want to work with, that lead to higher value deals and longer contracts.
Traditionally, this has been implemented by treating each account as its own market and it can deliver significant growth within new and existing accounts.
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.
A scaled ABM strategy may include the ability to target many accounts thanks to technology, but this alone is not an ABM strategy. ABM programmes are made up of three different approaches as illustrated in the pyramid below.
Scaled ABM allows for personalisation individually or in clusters within each of the pyramid levels and an account is unlikely to sit in one level throughout its relationship with the company.
During onboarding, we work with our clients to identify the best approach to implementing a fully fledged ABM programme that delivers success across the pipeline. Send us a message to discuss further.
