ABM Outline: Sales Engagement is Key
- Select the best accounts. Who can we successfully sell to?
- Know about them. Understand their the stack, buying committee, research, and where they are in their buying journey.
- Engage the right way. ABM relies on understanding your buyer personas and ICP in order to create compelling, personalized content delivered over the right channel, at the right time. From display to direct mail to BDR cadence to website experience- personalized by account, persona, and most importantly, timing.
- Collaborate with sales. Not a handoff or a lead “thrown over the wall,” but a real partnership. Provide sales with the right context and insights to help them know why, how, and when to engage.
- Track real stuff. We need to be tracking and reporting on things that actually matter and affect deal velocity and pipeline acceleration, such as new acounts engaged, new personas engaged, opportunity rate, and account win rates, knowing what accounts and personas are engaging can open a whole new prospecting pool you didn’t know existed.
