Introduction:

Account Based Marketing (ABM) is entering into the maturity stage in SMB firms. Surveys show that 71% of SMBs have some basic version of ABM in place and another 13% are planning to do so. However, the reality is that many of these firms are not achieving their ABM sales pipeline goals and are well over budget. The warning signs are there, management is signaling concern and frustration. Ignore the symptoms at your own peril.

This workshop takes a pragmatic view of ABM through the eyes of small and mid-size companies which must contribute to the sales pipeline and prove ROI. We’ll look at the processes and tactical options firms are using or considering, and what some SMBs are doing right and wrong. We’ll introduce a new way to look at ABM tactics and costs in light of their payback timelines the way CEOs and investors do. We’ll also discuss course corrections to make your program a high performer.

(Can’t attend the live workshop? No problem. All workshops are recorded, and we’ll send you the recording, workbook, and any supplementary materials within a day of completion after we’ve had time to edit the recording.)
