According to a HubSpot study, 61% of marketers consider generating traffic and leads to be their biggest challenge.

In addition, 68% of B2B companies struggle with high-quality lead generation, according to Demand Metric's content marketing report.

To solve this problem, the focus has shifted to Account-Based Marketing (ABM).

ABM is a strategy that involves targeting specific potential customers rather than a broader audience.

In this article, you will learn how to develop an effective ABM strategy for your company.

What is Account-Based Marketing?

Account-Based Marketing (ABM) is a marketing strategy that focuses on specific accounts rather than a broader market.

Rather than appealing to a broader audience, ABM focuses on the needs and wants of a specific customer.

According to Forbes, ABM is one of the most effective B2B marketing strategies, with 87% of marketers saying it generates a better ROI than other strategies.

Identify your target accounts

Before starting any ABM campaign, it is important that you identify your target accounts.

These are the companies you want as clients and with whom you want to work in the long term.

By identifying your target accounts, you can focus your marketing efforts on them to maximize your results.

According to Statista, 58% of B2B marketers consider account identification to be their biggest ABM challenge.

To identify your target accounts, you should consider aspects such as company size, industry, geographic location and business objectives.

Personalize your messages

Once you have identified your target accounts, it is important to personalize your messages.

Potential customers want to feel that you are speaking directly to them and that you know their specific needs.

According to a study by Epsilon, 80% of customers are more likely to make a purchase when their shopping experience is personalized.

Use multiple marketing channels

An effective ABM strategy should utilize multiple marketing channels to reach target accounts in the most effective way possible.

According to a HubSpot study, LinkedIn is the most effective marketing channel for ABM.

However, you should consider what is the most effective channel to reach your potential customers.
