2022 State Of ABM: Account-Based Strategies Continue Experiential Evolution
The continuous evolution of ABM best practices presents a unique challenge for B2B marketers. While ABM is beyond its infancy — according to ITSMA, almost 50% of all ABM programs are in the "expanding" or "embedded" stage — marketing teams are still learning how to ease growing pains.
ABM practitioners are turning to campaign customization to better identify accounts where they are to increase engagement. The result is account-based experiences (ABX), which provides a more tailored approach to campaigns with immersive content to boost engagement by building an emotional connection with buyers. ABX goes beyond traditional marketing-centric interactions to include sales, sales development, customer success and other revenue teams.
