At Demand Gen Report, as well as at our sister publication ABM In Action, we have made it our mission to ensure that we’re providing the latest trends and best practices in the growing realm of account-based strategy. But during a recent webcast we produced with our friends at Engagio, I realized that there is always something to learn when it comes to one of the hottest trends in B2B business today.
In 2007 it took a little more than three-and-a-half cold calls to reach a prospect. These days it takes eight. Each year it will take more. The trend is rapid and clear. What is to be done?
Engagio, a marketing orchestration software company, announced it has launched Dash Account Based Attribution, a solution designed to help B2B marketers measure ROI and make better decisions about driving business outcomes at high-value accounts with multi-touch attribution.
At a recent industry event, the above question was posed by marketers and industry observers, who wondered out loud where the account-based marketing train was actually headed. It’s certainly a question worth pondering, especially as the marketing-tech world has become awash with buzz-worthy new technologies promising all manner of sales, revenue and AI-powered Nirvana.
For years, targeting key accounts has been a cornerstone of effective B2B growth.
The ITSMA pioneered the concept of account-based strategies over a decade ago, reporting that it “delivers the highest return on investment of any B2B marketing strategy or tactic. Period.”
