How is AI Helping Marketers to Conquer Account-Based Marketing
Artificial intelligence and account-based marketing are such intertwined subjects that it’s nearly impossible to read any marketing journal or strategy without the mention of artificial intelligence in some capacity. Marketing and sales teams heavily depend on AI-powered tools like data analysis, chatbots, martech tools, and personalization to optimize their account-based strategy, or ABM as it is called short. Gartner predicted that by 2020, humans would not be required to form most of the enterprise relationships with customers.
Let’s first understand what is ABM and what does it do?
ABM is an approach, a B2B strategy where marketers and sales teams collaborate to identify high-value accounts and VIP customers by doing away with the traditional fishing with a net technique. You may typically have a fair idea about the good fishing spots, but it is highly likely that you will end up catching all kinds of fish. While filtering the best catch, you may have to throw away most of the catch. ABM helps marketers do just that – weed away unqualified accounts. Once the weeding process is complete, AI-powered tools come into play and enable teams to send personalized, relevant content and streamline workflows.
This article will focus on AI’s role in leveraging the account-based marketing strategy.
Identify the best fits
Marketo is an automation platform that offers some of the most refined marketing services. The AI can scan through all your contacts and generate lead scores to help you determine the accounts with the highest value. Once the best fits are identified, you can move to the next step of nurturing a personalized relationship.
After identifying the best-fit account, the next obvious step is to create personalized content for the client representing their interests, likes, and dislikes. You can choose from a variety of templates, to create attractive content that resonates with the client’s interests, wants, and needs. The template can tailor and customize the landing pages which are otherwise too generic and boring. With Ai, each client opening the company webpage will witness a more personal and relevant landing page. Experiences are one such software that works magic for you.
