Account-Based Marketing (ABM) is a critical approach to business markets in the new paradigm. In a challenging economic landscape, B2B-focused organisations must learn how to extract added value from these accounts. The ability to reliably deliver powerful strategies that fuel growth for key accounts at times of economic instability turn you into a preferred growth partner.
ABM helps you align the sales and marketing functions, and to achieve top-line and bottom-line targets. Firms that have transitioned to the ABM model have seen multi-fold growth in their average contract values and dramatic improvements in their return on marketing investments.
This interactive programme will help you understand the principles of ABM and get a first-hand experience with the tools, frameworks, and methods to be able to successfully implement it in your organisation. Using live examples, case studies, a simulation, and a project, you will learn how to seamlessly transition your organisation to ABM with minimal internal disruption.
