What Exactly is ABM?

ABM is a strategic approach where an organization targets and communicate with ideal customer accounts as markets of one, rather than casting a wider demographic net like other lead generation strategies. It’s like fishing with a spear to get the fish you want the most, rather than casting a wide net hoping some good fish get caught.

ABM is an increasingly valuable strategy as it can help generate deeper, more valuable customer relationships and higher retention.

Key Benefits of ABM

  • By flipping the funnel on its head, you ensure that every dollar invested in marketing is more effective and produces a higher ROI by targeting only the companies who are your ideal customers.

  • Build trust and buy-in with large, complex and high-value accounts

  • Build relationships with key decision makers involved in the buying cycle within those accounts

  • Ability to address the key challenges and pain points of your ideal customers in a more personalized, engaging and relevant way, often at the individual level.

  • Positions your products and/or services as the solution to their challenges and problems, and sets you apart from ‘just a vendor’ to ‘a trusted partner’

3 Subsets of ABM Marketing

ABM can be broken down into three distinct subsets: Strategic, Lite, and Programmatic. New technologies have enabled different types of ABM at scale.
