Find and Fix These Three Mistakes that Get in the Way of ABM Success. 


ABM is top of mind for enterprise B2B marketers. But what do they really mean when they say they’re “doing ABM”? We looked under the surface and found that in some areas what marketers think they’re doing and what they’re actually doing is quite different.


What do enterprise B2B marketers really mean when they say they're "doing ABM"?

We surveyed 393 senior marketing leaders in US-based, B2B technology companies and found that in some areas what marketers think they’re doing and what they’re actually doing is quite different.

In this Coffee Break, Iron Horse CEO Uzair Dada explored three key areas of disconnect with ABM expert Jon Miller.

  1. The accounts part of account based marketing. ABM is about accounts, not leads. But 75% of respondents that identify ABM as a significant part of their organization's growth objectives review MQLs daily or weekly, while only 49% review MQAs that frequently.

  2. The extent of alignment with sales. Alignment with sales is a central piece of ABM, but it turns out that many marketing and sales teams don’t align on the goals of ABM programs or the specific ways they’ll measure those goals.

  3. The unified customer experience. 99% of marketers use marketing-based email campaigns for account based marketing—BUT only 30% are aligning marketing emails with other marketing tactics for a consistent customer experience.


Watch now to hear these two ABM leaders demystify enterprise ABM and share what it really takes to win!
