ABM defines the synergy between marketing and sales teams, capable of closing large and complex deals with a specific number of high-value accounts. The process of identifying these accounts adds an extra stage to the inbound marketing process, which is vital for an ABM approach

  • How to sell high-value B2B products or services effectively?
  • What are the steps to create an effective ABM Strategy?
  • What are the tools you need to run a successful ABM strategy across Marketing & Sales teams?
  • How to make people engage using personalized content?

Is an ABM approach feasible for every B2B company? 

That is one question that can be answered in detail by business experts who have already experienced what differences this approach made to their company. Nonetheless, you should count on ABM as a go-to strategy, especially if you find yourself in one of these scenarios: 

  • Your business has a high-priced product

  • You mainly sell to buying-committees 

  • Your prospects are either focused on a particular niche or are massive companies

If one of these scenarios speaks about your business, you will see that after integrating an ABM strategy, you will make the most of your marketing and sales efforts, by: 

  • Closing bigger deals 

  • Closing deals faster

  • Strengthening collaboration between sales and marketing teams

How to create effective ABM campaigns with HubSpot features 

The increased use of new technologies helps digital marketers to execute their activities at a different level, with improved effectiveness. It is the case of account-based marketers, as well.

The right approach will help businesses everywhere to focus on accounts that have the potential to grow these businesses, and HubSpot’s ABM features is an excellent ally for implementing a successful account-based strategy. 

Through HubSpot, account-based marketers can have a tailored approach, since they will be able to direct the effort to only a few selected prospects. And what is great about this platform is that you can personalize each one of your Inbound materials, from landing pages to emails or forms, resulting in high-quality customer experience. 

Engaging with prospects and monitoring the results is also something that you will easily do through the HubSpot platform. 

As a quick overview of the HubSpot’s ABM tool, here are three main features that users can find on their dashboard, and integrate it with their activities, to increase the marketing and sales performance: 

  • Company Properties

  • Contact Property
