PHASE 6: ACCOUNT BASED MARKETING

Focus Marketing resources on the most important accounts.

 

Mass marketing tactics do not work for companies that need to focus on a small number of high-value accounts. Traditional “spray and pray” approaches will not attract these valuable accounts. For companies that live and die by the big deal, a focused marketing approach is critical. Only highly-targeted, customized content will provide the insights to compel accounts like these to buy your solutions. As a result, these accounts are easier to obtain, retain, and grow.
