Meet the Account-Based Marketing Superheroes! Here’s a look at the most impressive B2B marketing mavens in the ABM world.
The complete list of account-based marketing superheroes includes B2B marketing and demand generation thought-leaders as well as practitioners who are putting ABM theory into practice at their own organizations.
“These superheroes are truly the trailblazers of account-based marketing,” says Terminus CMO and co-founder, Sangram Vajre. “They’re taking ABM from beyond being a buzzword to proving its impact on growing revenue.”
The Terminus ABM Superheroes have made the shift from traditional lead generation to focus on the companies, or accounts, that are the best fit for their business. Account-based marketing allows B2B marketers to work in tandem with their sales team to support the revenue goals of their business.
“While account-based marketing is not a new idea, these ABM Superheroes are challenging the status quo by redefining the concept to use marketing technology to engage their contacts at scale. Instead of blasting that same message to thousands of people, our superheroes are able to personalize content and campaigns for the right accounts,” Vajre said. “These are the B2B marketing rockstars who know what it takes to go beyond being a ‘one-night stand’ marketer.”
To be included in the league of ABM Superheroes, these B2B marketers have successfully:
- Targeted the right accounts based on their ideal customer profiles (ICP) or persona criteria.
- Engaged accounts in the most meaningful and personalized way possible on multiple channels such as mobile, social, display, and video.
- Accelerated opportunities down the marketing and sales pipeline while building long-term relationships to create customer advocates.
“We had a hard time narrowing down the list to just 40 people because there are so many brilliant B2B marketers out there,” Vajre explained, “but our superheroes, especially our customers, are truly leading change in their organizations by testing account-based strategies and tactics in the marketplace.”
