In reality, ABM is not a fancy standby for sales neither is it pocket-pinching or required to absorb new marketing techniques. It’s more about re-focusing on the marketing strategy that enables you to reduce marketing costs, improve conversions, generate better and quality leads while exceeding your targets. Precisely, ABM concentrates marketing and sales resources on a well-analysed and predefined set of targeted accounts to attract, engage, convert and close the same. Thus, leading to increased ROI.
