B2B Marketers Sound Off: What’s Working In ABM During & Post-COVID-19? https://www.demandgenreport.com/features/industry-insights/b2b-marketers-sound-off-what-s-working-in-abm-during-post-covid-19 https://www.demandgenreport.com/features/industry-insights/b2b-marketers-sound-off-what-s-working-in-abm-during-post-covid-19 B2B Marketers Sound Off: What’s Working In ABM During & Post-COVID-19?

With many businesses pivoting marketing strategies and canceling events due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, maintaining an ABM strategy in the B2B market is becoming increasingly more challenging. Despite the unknowns, keeping the engagement engine running with ABM is still a viable opportunity for businesses looking to build momentum during this difficult time.

ITSMA, a B2B marketing leadership community, recently partnered with the ABM Leadership Alliance, a national organization focused on educating B2B marketers about developing and deploying a successful ABM, to host a webinar called “Accelerating ABM impact: What’s Working, What’s Next.” Moderated by ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt, the panel featured leaders in the B2B marketing space, including:

  • Charm Bianchini, VP of Growth Marketing, LeanData;
  • Chad Blaise, Head of Channels & Growth, Bizzabo;
  • Christine Farrier, Sr. Director of Channel & Partner Marketing, Demandbase;
  • Megan Heuer, VP of Marketing, Engagio;
  • Cassandra Jowett, Sr. Director of Marketing, PathFactory;
  • Eric Martin, VP of Demand Generation, SalesLoft;
  • Jane Menyo, Sr. Director of Solutions Marketing, ON24; and
  • Marne Reed, Chief Evangelist, VP of Strategic Alliances, PFL.

During the presentation, the panel of experts discussed sales alignment, integrating ABM with demand generation, integrated campaigns and creating engaging ABM content. Demand Gen Report attended the webinar to aggregate some of the key insights from the conversation.

On Using This Time To Build Internal & External Relationships…

“Take this time right now to start building your relationships with sales. The more that you understand what’s going on with sales, the more ABM will work.” —Charm Bianchini, LeanData

“People are really paying attention when you personalize things for them. Sometimes just working directly with the sales team one-on-one and choosing the right content for that account is the key.” —Cassandra Jowett, PathFactory

On Integrating ABM With Traditional Demand Gen…

“Having a blend of account-based focus and broad-based demand gen makes sense. [In terms of] direct mail and gifting, we’re doing more programs that are personalized for that specific geo and making them more donation focused. We’re giving back to those less fortunate in the community right now and really embedding that message of ‘make a donation on your path.’” —Eric Martin, SalesLoft

“We marry our demand gen and ABM by having the demand gen bring in unknown ICPs and then use the ABM strategy to carry them through the nurture conversation. Looking at the digital intent signals, our ABM starts when the BDR handoff and then our multi-channel orchestrated campaigns begin at that point.” —Marne Reed, PFL

On Developing Engaging ABM Content In Lieu Of Physical Meetings…

 “We knew it was still very important for our targeted accounts to hear about the items we were going to be sharing. Turning our virtual keynote into a product announcement and making it available to people who registered — as well as wider audiences — was a big success for us. We had lots of engagement in terms of people wanting to get access to that content and it is going to be a great pipeline producer.” —Christine Farrier, Demandbase

“We put together some packages of content, which we call content tracks, to serve those [accounts] and deliver across multiple channels including the sales team. It was amazing to see that the average view time on that content was double or triple what it would normally be for that type of campaign. —Cassandra Jowett, PathFactory.

On Investing In ABM Tech…

“The two main components you want to be focused on when you think about your tech stack and your efficiencies is how does it help you automate your workflows? ABM is how you effectively scale your programs in your business, so think about the ways it’s going to actually support your team in their work and day-to-day. The second part is, how are you going to empower your team with intelligence to actually take smarter actions? In our world, data is gold, but we can often be swimming in data and not know what to do with it.” —Jane Menyo, ON24.


Now more than ever, B2B marketers are in a unique position to assess the efficacy of their solutions and to target accounts that have the greatest potential to buy. Whether it’s creating more personalized content, investing in better technology or spending more time with their sales teams, marketers should use this time to refine their ABM strategy so they won’t lose any ground and can come out the gate swinging when the social restrictions lift.

“What do people really miss about not being able to go to those in-person events right now?” asked Engagio’s Heuer. “One of those things is just having those conversations with peers, meeting new people, expanding your network, finding new ideas in places you didn’t expect.”

Your inbox is probably flooded with virtual event and webinar invitations now that in-person events are on hiatus. I’ve even had conversations with people who said “webinar fatigue” is a real thing, and I couldn’t agree more. However, on the bright side, these virtual events — when done right — are super helpful and provide a great source of inspiration as we navigate through this new reality we’re in.

That’s why Demand Gen Report decided to join the club and offer as much guidance for our audience and help them keep the engagement engine running within their organizations. We actually pride ourselves on maintaining this mindset for all of our content, live events and virtual events — pre-, during- and post-COVID.

There's an impressive lineup of keynotes from industry experts, case studies of real-world success stories from your peers, informative lunch & learns and breakouts within three tracks that will provide educational insights and tactical takeaways around content, ABM and demand generation. These sessions are some of the top-rated presentations from the February event in Scottsdale, as well as some new content that we developed just for this virtual event. 

We've got more than 25 sessions on deck, including four of our top-rated keynotes featuring Todd Henry, Tamsen Webster, Carmen Simon and Pam Didner. Plus, Mark Bornstein, VP of Marketing at ON24, presented a brand-new keynote to kick off the event. Here’s a quick overview:

    During this keynote, Tamsen will explain how to get your team, your clients and the market to say “YES” to your ideas … as well as share helpful insights on how to organize your content so it feels like a story and keeps clients hanging on to every word.
  • Tackling B2B’s Creativity Problem: How To Find Moments Of Brilliance In Everyday Chaos

HubSpot Launches CMS Hub To Streamline Website Management https://www.demandgenreport.com/features/news-briefs/hubspot-launches-cms-hub-to-streamline-website-management https://www.demandgenreport.com/features/news-briefs/hubspot-launches-cms-hub-to-streamline-website-management HubSpot Launches CMS Hub To Streamline Website Management

HubSpot, a marketing and sales growth platform, has launched CMS Hub, a new content management system designed to simplify website maintenance, allowing users to create personalized website experiences for their audiences.

The CMS Hub aims to provide site-wide editing accessible by employees of any department, strong security to create a safe browsing experience and a partitioning feature for asset management. These features intend to help growing businesses focus less on data management and more on optimizing their target audience’s experience.

The platform features different tiers designed to provide various degrees of help depending on the business’ needs.

The CMS Hub Professional tier centers around maintenance and design, providing:

  • Updates that allow for easy website management;
  • SEO recommendations to drive website traffic and generate leads; and
  • Built-in CRM and Conversation tools for desired customer experiences.

CMS Hub’s Enterprise tier includes the Professional tier’s features, plus the ability to:

  • Control who has access to specific features on the website;
  • Build personalized websites using customer data; and
  • Manage multiple domains simultaneously.

"Marketers at growing companies have a lot of things to think about — their CMS should not be one of them," said Angela DeFranco, Director of Product Management at HubSpot, in a statement. "Most CMS platforms available today make website management more complicated and painful as time goes by. They put a limit on what's possible. They have a ceiling. But rapidly scaling companies don't. I'm delighted that with CMS Hub, we're offering users a powerful system that removes unnecessary gatekeepers, democratizes the web management process, and makes it easy for them to execute their boldest ideas."
