ABM Execution In The Light Of Enterprise Reality

ABM Execution In The Light Of Enterprise Reality

Existing account-based marketing platforms have their roots in serving the needs of early-stage organizations. Why? Their needs are easier to solve and are within reach for an early-stage tech startup. These VC funded platforms face tremendous pressure to create short term revenue traction and the inevitable shift to prioritize short term decisions. This pressure results in the development of channel-based, narrow silos of activity we now know as the “ABM Platform.”

ABM For Enterprise Demand Gen Marketers

ABM For Enterprise Demand Gen Marketers

The debate over ABM best practice struggles to make sense for sophisticated demand generation teams. Why? For organizations with a wealth of market experience, you already have sizable investments in lead generation, you have multichannel programs, scoring methodologies, and reporting, and adding a new and disconnected strategy and technology is more likely to confuse audiences, break measurement systems, and drive up the cost of acquisition. If you’re an enterprise-class marketing organization, adding a new silo of activity and measurement doesn’t make sense.

Intent Is Not Predictive: Intent Data Meets Predictive Scoring

Intent Is Not Predictive: Intent Data Meets Predictive Scoring

The fact is that intent data isn’t predictive… it’s backward-looking, it poses significant latency as a marketing trigger, and it involves a lot more than a subscription with a single vendor. Intent certainly helps identify accounts, but it is a very one-dimensional view of the information needed. Intent data swells up over time, so your intent provider may be pointing this out to you late because they didn’t capture enough of the signal early enough to let you know in time, or you get too many false positives. Marketers often get this wrong, and there is a tremendous amount of pressure to do something with all the tools that they have. But measuring success by delivering content to accounts that display implied intent, at best, will only drive awareness or provide the wrong level of content to prospects who could be in market for a different solution that you have.

Reclaiming Channel Partners’ Rightful Spot in ABM

Reclaiming Channel Partners’ Rightful Spot in ABM

Today, a mere one in three channel marketers are confident that they can optimize their MDF spend. Perhaps this is spurred by the fact that 59% say they have zero visibility into their marketing-generated pipeline or historical campaign analytics, and 78% complain of poor lead conversion. To this point, channel marketing programs have largely mirrored B2B marketing best practice – to generate and process leads, with a focus on efficiency and quantity. It makes sense, we all want more leads, and it would be great if they were less expensive.
