Sales and Marketing integration is critical
Digital marketing and e-commerce have taken on a life of their own and have created opportunities to engage with customers in a much more meaningful way. Marketing in our accelerated digital environment delivers an exponential return on investment but needs to be at the table to co orchestrate the account plan with the SAM.
Strategic Account Management is a team sport for customer intimacy
We can all agree that customer-centricity and customer focus are the cornerstone of effective strategic account management and key to being differentiated and relevant. We understand that it is not how we sell, but rather how customers buy and develop our understanding to enable a co-created future.
Marketing needs to become outside in and human to human marketing
ABM today is still too often based upon products, campaigns, or offerings. An inside-out way of working conflicts with the outside-in mindset that is at the core of how we ask SAMs to engage to enable higher-order partnerships
The next generation is Customer-Led; Team-Enabled where Marketing and SAM co-orchestrate throughout the customer journey.
The next generation of effective account-based marketing is focused on the customer journey from point of inspiration to point of sale and beyond. Account-Based Marketing takes a deep dive into how our integrated team of sales and marketing creates communication points with our customers throughout the customer journey and decision making.
By collecting and digesting insights, and distilling them into actionable valuable information, ABM contributes to helping the SAM deep dive into the knowledge of the customer.
Best-of-class organizations have not just a collaborative environment, but moreover, an integrated Sales & Marketing approach designed around the customer.
