Relaunching ABM as ABE to Drive Alignment

Demand Gen Summit Spring 2024

Olga Karanikos and Sabih Ahmed discuss launching account-based marketing as account-based engagement to drive alignment.

Key Points

  • Alignment between sales and marketing is crucial, as is obtaining support from top management. A unified strategy that has the full backing of the sales, marketing, and customer service teams as a single revenue unit can be a game changer.
  • The most effective approach to running ads may not be to generate leads, but to spark interest in accounts and build the brand through storytelling and educational content.
  • If you're new to Account-Based Marketing (ABM), you don't need an extensive tech stack to implement a strategy, but you do need to understand your customers. Therefore, invest in customer insights, develop buyer personas, and create a content strategy tailored to those personas.
