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 has 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.

Who should participate?

This eight-hour, online course is designed for B2B marketers pivoting to an ABM strategy. It is specifically designed for anyone who is just getting started in ABM or works alongside marketing and wants to have a better understanding of ABM and how it can help increase revenues, create new and stronger relationships, and build a better reputation.

What will I learn?

The Fundamentals of ABM course helps B2B marketers understand when and how to use ABM, select the right accounts, and practice the seven steps involved in building an ABM plan. You’ll learn from top ABM experts, explore real-world case studies, participate in group discussions, and network with peers facing similar ABM challenges. By the end of this session, you will:
  • Understand the difference between ABM and traditional demand generation campaigns
  • Be able to select the right accounts for your program
  • Know how to identify what is driving accounts
  • Understand how to identify and prioritize “plays” for your target accounts
  • Know how to profile stakeholders and create buyer personas
  • Be able to create customized value propositions
  • Know how to design and execute integrated sales and marketing campaigns
  • Be able to measure and communicate the impact made on reputation, relationships, and revenue growth
Those completing the course will receive accreditation from ITSMA for being Trained in the Fundamentals of ABM, including a printed certificate and digital mark.
