You already know that Account-Based Marketing (ABM) is delivering results. But are you and your team expanding your capabilities fast enough to take full advantage of the different approaches to ABM? Succeeding with ABM requires a complex blend of leadership, business acumen, and a range of specific marketing skills.

ITSMA pioneered ABM in the early 2000s, and worked since then with leading B2B technology, telecom, and services firms to design and execute ABM strategies and programs. Our approach, methodology, and practical experience are the best in the business, and we’ve trained hundreds of marketers from award-winning ABM programs for more than a decade.

Our industry-leading ABM Certification and Mentoring Program provides an intensive, 90-day immersion in the methodology and skills that ABM-ers need to succeed. The program includes a two-day kickoff workshop, three webinars, and expert, on-the-job mentoring and coaching to create a robust ABM plan that’s ready to go.

Interested in learning more? Read the details below.


Who Should Participate

ITSMA’s ABM Certification and Mentoring Program is designed for experienced, client-side marketing professionals who want to build their professional competency in ABM. We evaluate all applicants to make sure that everyone meets the minimum requirements for the program. (Please note: the program is not open to agency staff or consultants.)


What will I learn?

Specifically, the program helps you learn how to:

  • Understand the value and impact of ABM, including the three distinct types of ABM (1:1, 1:few, and 1:many)
  • Identify priority accounts for ABM
  • Develop new insights into accounts
  • Design targeted, differentiated propositions
  • Craft marketing messages and campaigns that resonate
  • Create and sustain deep, long-term relationships with executives
  • Build client loyalty and intimacy
  • Measure your impact in terms of reputation, relationships, and revenue in each account

The program provides a unique opportunity to learn from top ABM experts, explore real-world case studies, actively participate in group work and discussions, and network with marketers facing similar ABM challenges.

  • Three, 60-minute webinars
    1. Anatomy of a One-to-One ABM Campaign. In this webinar, a member of ITSMA’s ABM Alumni group will share a case study, starting with the reason for selecting the account and the business objectives set, then working through the seven-step process to the results achieved and lessons learned. Delegates will reflect on the case study and any implications for their own ABM plan.
    2. Anatomy of a One-to-Few ABM Campaign. In this webinar, a member of ITSMA’s ABM Alumni group will share a case study, starting with the way the cluster of accounts was selected and the business objectives set for it, then working through the seven-step process to the results achieved and lessons learned. Delegates will reflect on the case study and any implications for their own ABM plan.
    3. Anatomy of a One-to-Many ABM Campaign. In this webinar, a member of ITSMA’s ABM Alumni group will share a case study, starting with the way the group of accounts was selected for ABM and the business objectives set for it, then working through the seven-step process to the results achieved and lessons learned. Delegates will reflect on differences between one-to-many and the other types of ABM covered in the first two webinars, and discuss implications for their own ABM plan.
  • Four homework assignments
    1. Account/cluster selection, insights, and imperatives and initiatives
    2. Plays for the account/cluster
    3. Stakeholder profiles
    4. Campaign plan and metrics
  • Final deliverable: an action-ready ABM plan for an account or cluster of accounts

I found the ITSMA ABM Certification kick off workshop very interesting and useful in helping me lead HCL’s ABM program. The facilitator was a powerful story teller, and the 1.5 days at the workshop were very engaging and informative.
