What is Account-Based Marketing?
ABM Focuses on Improving Sales and Personalization
ABM is a personalized marketing approach that focuses on a select group of high-value accounts. Instead of casting a wide net, you concentrate on the key decision-makers within individual accounts that matter most to your business.
Your messaging can be curated for specific companies and individuals by identifying target accounts. Armed with relevant data, research, and helpful tools to meet the business objectives of your audience, sales and marketing teams are better equipped to execute campaigns.
Unlocking the potential of ABM can skyrocket your business’ growth and increase customer satisfaction. 87% of B2B marketers surveyed by ITSMA reported that the ROI of their ABM initiatives outperformed their other marketing investments.
When marketing and sales reps cultivate an account-based strategy, objectives are clear, and your teams can focus on the highest-value accounts. The benefits are:
Targeting best-fit accounts reduces digital marketing expenses. Sales teams work on more precise account-based advertising eliminating the need for prospecting through traditional lead-based marketing. The focus on high-value accounts yields a better return on your investment.
ABM lets you create custom campaigns tailored to each account’s unique needs. Outbound marketing and inbound strategies can be curated to your target account. These personalized campaigns connect your sales reps with critical decision-makers throughout the customer lifecycle.
ABM leads to excellent customer success and satisfaction. Even within the most niche target market, every customer is unique. Because sales teams work to develop solutions for key accounts, you are more likely to build strong, lasting connections with your clients.

ABM Programs are Proven to Ignite Conversations and Conversions
You’re pressured to generate more revenue with the same or less investment. Account-based marketing offers a potential solution.

We can help you build your account-based marketing strategy from scratch, fill the gaps in an existing lead generation program, and ultimately help you gain value and drive results your sales team will love.

By aligning these two essential teams, your business can achieve remarkable results and foster long-term relationships with your most-coveted prospects.
Partnering with Valve+Meter helps empower your customer success teams for long-term and sustainable marketing campaigns. Our ABM strategists help you shift the hidebound division between sales and marketing and drive growth.
A Holistic Approach to Targeting Key Accounts
ABM’s unique approach to targeting high-value accounts is one of its key strengths. Instead of casting a wide net and hoping for the best, ABM zeroes in on the accounts that matter most to your business. This targeted focus requires sales and marketing teams to work in unison, combining their knowledge and expertise to create tailored campaigns that resonate with your ideal customers.
Seamless Collaboration for Maximum Impact
The ABM methodology encourages collaboration between your marketing and sales teams like never before. By working together, these teams can develop a deep understanding of your target accounts’ needs, pain points, and goals. This knowledge allows sales and marketing teams to create personalized messaging that speaks directly to the decision-makers within those accounts.
The Power of Personalization
ABM’s emphasis on personalization is a game-changer. By tailoring your campaigns to the specific needs of your target accounts, you can forge stronger connections and drive engagement. This level of personalization requires marketing and sales teams to share insights and data, ensuring the right message reaches the right person at the right time.
Building Long-Term Relationships for Sustainable Growth
One of the primary goals of ABM is to build long-term relationships with your high-value accounts. This requires ongoing collaboration among your sales, marketing, and customer success teams, and a commitment to nurturing these relationships through every stage of the buyer’s journey. By working together, your marketing and sales teams can ensure that your target accounts remain engaged, informed, and, ultimately, become loyal customers.

Account-based marketing is a versatile and effective approach that can be adapted to suit your business’s unique needs. You can create a powerful ABM strategy that delivers exceptional results by leveraging a range of account-based marketing tactics.
This section explores some of the most-effective tactics to incorporate into your ABM campaigns.
- Personalized Content – A Cornerstone of ABM Strategy: One of the critical elements of a successful ABM strategy is customized content. Unlike with traditional inbound marketing, which casts a wide net to attract a broad audience, ABM focuses on creating content that speaks directly to your target accounts. This tailored approach ensures your message resonates with the right people, drives engagement, and fosters strong connections.
- Leveraging Intent Data for Precise Targeting: Harnessing intent data is crucial to account-based marketing tactics. Analyzing this data lets you gain valuable insights into your target accounts’ online behavior and interests. With this information, you can create highly relevant content and messaging that aligns with your prospects’ needs and goals. Utilizing intent data in your ABM strategy helps you target the right people at the right time, maximizing the impact of your campaigns.
- Direct Mail – A Personal Touch in a Digital World: Direct mail is often overlooked in digital marketing, but remains a powerful account-based marketing tactic. Incorporating this age-old tactic into your ABM strategy can add a personal touch to your campaigns, making a lasting impression on your targets. Thoughtfully designed and personalized mail pieces can help your business stand out from the competition and deepen your connection with your prospects.
- Targeted Digital Advertising – Maximizing Reach and Engagement: Targeted digital advertising is another effective account-based marketing tactic. By leveraging advanced targeting techniques and data-driven insights, you can ensure your ads reach your target account list with precision and impact. This focused approach allows you to cut through the noise of traditional inbound marketing, delivering your message to the right people and driving engagement.
- Account-Based Events: Building Connections and Showcasing Expertise: Hosting events specifically designed for your target accounts is an excellent way to deepen relationships and showcase your industry expertise. From intimate roundtable discussions to larger-scale webinars, these account-based marketing tactics can provide your prospects with valuable insights and experiences.
- Well-executed events also position your business as a thought leader, strengthening your reputation and credibility in the eyes of your targets.
Traditional marketing approaches often focus on generating a high volume of leads, whereas ABM focuses on targeting and nurturing each target account in your ideal customer profile. This allows businesses to invest their resources more efficiently, delivering personalized campaigns that drive better results.
ABM can benefit businesses across various industries, especially those with long sales cycles, complex offerings, or high-value customers. Industries such as technology, finance, healthcare, and manufacturing are just a few that can benefit from implementing ABM strategies.
Account-based and lead-based marketing are two distinct approaches to marketing and sales. While they share some similarities, they differ in their focus and strategies.
ABM is a targeted marketing approach that focuses on identifying, engaging, and converting specific high-value accounts, rather than just generating many leads.
It involves creating personalized marketing campaigns tailored to these accounts’ unique needs and challenges. ABM is particularly effective for B2B companies with long sales cycles, as it helps align your marketing and sales teams, creating a more streamlined and efficient process.
On the other hand, lead-based marketing is a broader approach that aims to attract a wide range of potential customers through various marketing channels. It typically involves casting a wide net to generate as many leads as possible, hoping that some will convert into paying customers. Traditional inbound lead-focused marketing emphasizes quantity, while ABM focuses on quality and personalization.
Determining which accounts to target in an ABM campaign involves considering revenue potential, industry, customer fit, and likelihood to close. Our team of experts will work closely with you to identify and prioritize the most valuable accounts for your business.
The timeline for seeing results from an ABM campaign can vary depending on the complexity of the campaign, the sales cycle, and the level of engagement from target accounts. Generally, ABM campaigns deliver results faster than traditional marketing approaches, focusing on targeting your target account list with personalized messaging.
Absolutely! ABM can be effectively integrated with other marketing strategies, such as content marketing, inbound marketing, and demand generation. You can create a cohesive and comprehensive marketing approach that drives better results by aligning your account-based marketing campaigns with other marketing efforts.
The ROI from ABM services can be significant, as account-based marketing campaigns are designed to focus on accounts from your target account list that have the potential to deliver the greatest return on investment. While the specific ROI will depend on factors such as your target accounts, campaign strategies, and marketing budget, many businesses find ABM delivers a higher ROI than traditional marketing approaches.
Measuring the success of an ABM campaign involves tracking key performance indicators (KPIs), such as engagement, conversions, revenue generated, and deal velocity. By closely monitoring these metrics, we can gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of your campaigns and make data-driven adjustments as needed to optimize results.
