Account Based Marketing provides a vital strategy for companies that want to create sustainable growth and profitability within their most important client accounts. ABM focuses explicitly on individual client accounts and their needs. More importantly, it is a collaborative approach that engages sales, marketing, delivery, and key executives toward achieving the client’s business goals. All of these attributes contribute to the success of ABM in practice.
ABM delivers the highest Return on Investment of any B2B marketing strategy or tactic. Period.
ITSMA pioneered the concept of Account Based Marketing more than a decade ago and remains the recognized authority on the subject. We work directly with companies to develop and implement ABM programs, offer ABM training and certification programs (here’s what’s coming up), provide personalized coaching to ABM practitioners, and continually research the subject.
