On Thursday 17th August, half a dozen intrepid B2B marketers gathered at the offices of Radiate B2B in central London for the inaugural meetup of the London chapter of FlipMyFunnel and a look at Account Based Marketing and its evolution into Account Based Everything (ABX).
I was excited to attend, last month, the first London Account Based Marketing Meetup, organised by DemandBase. Quite apart from the sunshine, beer and pizzas they were kind enough to lay on, there was a vibrant discussion amongst the (mostly agency) attendees of experiences in developing and implementing ABM strategies.
One area I found especially interesting was the discussion about which metrics matter when measuring the effectiveness of an ABM approach. I like DemandBase’s line that we need to move away from dependence on what they pithily describe as ‘vanity metrics’.
