Automation that brings sales, marketing, and opportunity together.
B2B sales means playing the long game. Identifying good-fit accounts is just the first step. You also have to reach decision makers and influencers within those accounts, and move them all to the same conclusion — that your product is the obvious choice. But that takes the right strategy and the tools that can implement it.
Going from lead-based marketing to account-based marketing (ABM) takes a close partnership between marketing and sales teams, and a platform capable of executing on complex buying journeys. For businesses looking realize the growth potential of ABM, they need a system that smartly combines data from both sales and marketing applications, so marketers find high-value accounts and target specific personas and buying groups with personalized content. And they need have a sophisticated lead scoring model that let them know when it’s time for marketing to step back and for sales to step in.
Adobe can help.
Adobe Marketo Engage lets you integrate marketing campaign activities with your CRM system and other apps to bring data-driven decisions, collaboration, and marketing automations to your ABM strategy. AI and machine learning use data to build good-fit accounts and help identify buying personas for marketers to engage. Marketing automations are informed by real-time customer behaviors and each customer interaction contributes to lead scores, showing interest and buying intent. By bridging sales and marketing, teams can work together to close deals faster, and up-sell and cross-sell more effectively.
Here are the keys to strong account-based marketing.
Sales and marketing alignment
Make sales and marketing one team by coordinating account-based experiences using natively integrated data and applications.
Predictive audience building and segmentation
Kick-start ABM with data instead of opinions using AI and machine learning, targeting filters and data from your CRM to help build predictive target account lists.
Personalized cross-channel experiences
Create in-depth personas and clearly defined segments based on customer attributes and sales goals, then send curated content, track engagement across channels, and deliver personalized experiences.
Automated ABM activities
Automatically update campaign activity and alert sales when customers are ready to talk using automated scoring and real-time customer engagement tracking.
Measurement and attributions
Improve your strategy and prove marketing ROI that marketing using multi-touch attribution at both a lead and account level.
