Introduction
The recent rise of account-based marketing (ABM) is nothing short of
remarkable.From a special initiative that a handful of B2B pioneers
developed to drive growth with top accounts in the early 2000s, ABM
is now a mainstream strategy that companies are implementing with
hundreds or even thousands of accounts with a wide range of
programs and objectives.
This research report highlights the main reason for such dramatic
growth: ABM works! In fact,as the report shows,a full 87% of
marketers implementing ABM say that it provides higher ROI than any
other type of marketing.Similarly, strong majorities say that ABM
drives improvement in the“Three R’s”of strategic marketing:
Reputation, Relationships, and Revenue.
More generally,the report provides an essential review of the current
state of play with ABM,with data and insight on such issues as budgets
and staffing,account selection,collaboration with sales,tools and
technology,campaign tactics,programmatic challenges,and,of
course,business benefits.
In conducting the research,ITSMA and the ABM Leadership Alliance
also focused on the three distinct types of ABM that have emerged in
recent years: One-to-One, One-to-Few, and One-to-Many. Most
companies are currently engaged in just one of these types,but a
growing number are experimenting with two of them,and many more
plan to move to a blended strategy over the next few years.The
research underscores the key challenges marketers are facing and the
specific ways they are addressing them.
The report is certainly not the last word in ABM; it’s a fast-changing
discipline and practitioners are still just scratching the surface of its full
potential as a business strategy and approach.Please join the
conversation by adding your questions,comments,and experiences to
the mix.We look forward to talking soon!

ABM Definition
Defining account-based marketing is notforthe
faint of heart! As the approach has taken off,so
too have the number of definitions.Even the
sponsors of this research have used different
definitions in the past.
Forthe purpose of this report,and with the hope
of helping marketers rally around a common
definition,we agree on the following:
Account-based marketing (ABM) is a strategic
approachto designing and executing highly-
targeted,personalized marketing programs and
initiativesto drive business growth and impact
with specific,named accounts.
Core principlesforABM include:
• Strategicfocus on improving business
reputation,relationships,and revenue
• Tight partnership and collaborationwith sales
• Tailored and custom programs and initiatives
based on deep client insight

“We recognized that our marketing spend was
inefficient and lead volume wasn't a valuable metric for
us anymore. We knew there had to be a different way, a
better way. That’s when we had the idea to take an
account-based approach. With our first pilot, we
achieved a 36% account-to-meeting conversion rate!”
Lisa Skinner, Vice President, Demand Generation, Localytics
“As opposed to mass marketing, ABM works because it’s
so targeted and strategic. It keeps our sales channels
focused on the end results because we have really long
sales cycles.”
Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company
“We’ve proven that ABM is a successful part of what we
do in marketing. Without ABM we'd be struggling to
achieve our KPIs. So ABM is kind of a hero.”

earliest research stages of the buying cycle,through evaluation,

core tools for account insight,

and relationship management
“We are testing the waters with certain emerging
technologies, but this is an area in which we are pushing our
ABM-ers to experiment more.We’re just scratching the
surface of what marketing technology can do to facilitate and
strengthen relationships with our clients for mutual value.”
Craig Rones, Vice President, Marketing, NTT DATA Services
“We are 100% One-to-One ABM, but we're
starting to think about how we do One-to-Few
and One-to-Many ABM. We're implementing
marketing automation this year,which will enable
us to expand our account coverage via other
forms of ABM.”
Andrea Clatworthy, Head of Account Based and Deal

“We’ve built quite a rigorous dashboard and an attribution model. We are
currently doing some pilots to create additional personalized experiences
for our customers, but I would say we are too early to report any results.”
Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business
“This year,we have begun a ‘digital first’ strategy in

success, and leverage technologies to help us scale.”

ABM marketers are aggressively addressing their
challenges and making headway
“Content creation, dissemination, and maintenance pose challenges and
opportunities. We have created a mobile app across industry verticals,
and our ABM accounts within them, to provide all collaborators easy
access to our ABM framework and the bespoke content.”

“Our first line of defense is always to make sure that if someone's already
doing something that we can leverage, we start there first and not build
something new.”
Amy Craven, Team Lead, Account-Based Marketing Program Office,
North America Marketing, SAP
“We have corporate and campaign teams that deliver great content, but
ABM customers are often at the bleeding edge and their content needs
are ahead of a typical campaign timeline. To be relevant, we need content
that helps these customers think about issues in a new way and this
content is often in the heads of our thought leaders. This is why live
events are a popular tool in ABM.”
Raianne Reiss, Director, Americas Marketing, Juniper
“We need to tailor our content so we do a lot of A/B
testing. We see which personas respond to what kind of
content. We measure everything, and then show more of
that type of content to those types of people.”
Masha Finkelstein, Director, Demand Generation, BetterWorks
“ABM marketers work very closely with the campaign
planning, demand generation, and events teams. They
also work closely with the brand teams to create a
unique theme or message for each of our One-to-One
ABM accounts.”
Abhishek Mendiratta, Sr. Director, Marketing & Demand
Generation, HCL America
“You have to raise awareness. One of the things I'm
doing this year is rolling out web-based ABM training for
general marketing and another course for others in the
company. The goal is to get the essence of ABM across to
them so they can start thinking about and adopting
some of the successful techniques.”

Approaches to account selection vary by type of
ABM and across companies
One-to-One ABM One-to-Few ABM One-to-Many ABM
“It’s important to prioritize which
accounts to spend the most time and
energy on. We look at two main things:
• Transformation potential—we use
intent data in combination with
account team insight
• Account Team relationship—our
ability to execute successfully with the
account team”
Michael Avis, Senior Director,
Account Based Marketing & Key Accounts,
Oracle EMEA Marketing
“The selection criteria changes as we
learn and get more experience, but it's
based on what we know works:
• How the account perceives us
• Relevance of our offers to the account
(e.g., are they an early adopter of
technology?)
• Geographic location of the decision-
making hierarchy (e.g., within the UK)”
Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing,
ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business
“The initial target account list came directly
from sales. Now we are adding signal intent.
We'll use artificial intelligence (AI) to see:
• Who the people are and what they are
doing on the web, such as keyword search
and the articles that they're browsing
• Who is researching right now
• Account demographics: which accounts
and people who resemble our current
customers”

Collaborating with sales is essential to success for
all three types of ABM
“With One-to-One ABM, the marketers are members of the
account team.We're on the calls. It often takes time to first
earn that trust with sales to get us to the point where we're
talking with customers.”
Amy Craven, Team Lead, Account-Based Marketing Program Office,
North America Marketing, SAP
“When we first started One-to-Many ABM, it was definitely a
marketing initiative.When we moved to round two, we selected
accounts with sales. Now for any marketing programs or money
spent,we are totally in lock-step with the sales organization.”
Lisa Skinner, Vice President, Demand Generation, Localytics
“In the historic model, even though we thought we worked
closely with sales,it was a hand-off. We sent them leads from
Salesforce and wished them luck.With ABM, we work hand-in-
hand at all stages of the buying process.”
Edwin Van Riessen, Director, Demand Generation, Deluxe Corporation
“Our salespeople really like having the support. I think many
times salespeople feel like they go to marketing and they're just
told,‘No, no, no.’ That’s all changed with ABM. Now sales says,
‘You guys are the only group that says yes.’”
Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company
“For the One-to-One ABM, marketing carries the head count
and the program spend sits within the account P&Ls.This helps
us align our investments and focus our efforts where they can
drive the greatest impact.And it ensures that everyone has skin
in the game,which makes for a much tighter, stronger,and
more cohesive approach to our clients, moving beyond just
collaboration into true partnership across marketing and sales.”
Craig Rones, Vice President, Marketing, NTT DATA Services
“ABM is 100% funded by marketing. This is something that I am
working on because marketing only has so much budget.The
business appetite is huge and they want to grow the program.
Also,to be a truly equal partnership between sales and
marketing,it needs to be co-funded.”

The most common ABM
marketing metrics are
pipeline growth,revenue,
return on the ABM account
investment,and
engagement
“As we've evolved, we've become much crisper in how we track and measure
the impact and effectiveness of ABM through three primary, objective
metrics:
• Revenue growth
• Pipeline creation and acceleration
• Contract signings”
Craig Rones, Vice President, Marketing, NTT DATA Services
“Essentially,it's the number of C-level meetings and pipeline generated according to our attribution
model. These are our ultimate objectives.”
Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business
“We will conduct an end-of-year assessment of how many deals closed at
the companies in the program, new revenue, and ABM ROI.
• One-to-One ABM: We generally have several tactics in motion
throughout the sales cycle so we can more accurately attribute success of
the deal to ABM
• One-to-Few ABM: We typically deploy fewer, broader tactics that help
move the needle, but are harder to track back to ABM. We may focus on
opening a new door or helping build a relationship. We still track new
revenue and ROI, but the ties seem a bit looser
For all kinds of ABM, we do a quarterly survey of our sales channel to gauge
their satisfaction.”
Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company

“In the early stages after we launched account-based marketing, people
would ask us,‘How's it going?’ We needed something that showed early
traction. We couldn’t wait until the sales accepted leads turned into
revenue. That is why we created the engagement score—lead scores in
Marketo rolled up at the account level.”
Edwin Van Riessen, Director, Demand Generation, Deluxe Corporation

Many companies are on the path
toward a blended ABM strategy
Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017
“The initial mandate was to build an
account-based marketing plan that
would help generate more
partnership-level reference accounts.
Because we had such great results
they asked us to bump the program
up from 8 accounts to 110. The way to
do that was to create the next tier on a
sector- rather than an account-level.
80% is consistent across the sector
with only 20% customized.”
Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing,
ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business
“We started with a list of the Fortune
1000 accounts.The goal was to identify
accounts that are more likely to convert
and become our customers using AI and
predictive analytics.
Right now we only do one-to-one
marketing on request.Sales will come to
us and ask if we can do something to help
move a prospect along.We suggest ideas
and execute.”
Masha Finkelstein, Director, Demand Generation,
BetterWorks
“Like many companies,we segment
our market and have a classic pyramid
with key accounts at the top and the
volume-market towards the bottom.
We’re getting smarter as an
organization on using appropriate
forms of ABM on that pyramid.ABM
can manifest itself in different ways,
according to which customers you’re
trying to reach.”
Michael Avis, Senior Director,
Account Based Marketing & Key Accounts,
Oracle EMEA Marketing

Recap: How to Get the most from your ABM
initiative
Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017
Invest in ABM;
it’s worth it!
• Make a long-term
commitment; ABM
results improve with
experience
• Allocate budget even if
that means stopping
other marketing
programs; ABM ROI is
higher when compared
to traditional marketing
Optimize results with a
blended approach
• Understand the role
each type of ABM can
play in supporting key
business objectives:
segment accounts and
initiatives accordingly
• Broaden and deepen
your programs in
lockstep with sales to
ensure coverage and an
integrated approach
Collaborate actively
with sales
• Define program
objectives and
approaches together;
review plans and results
on a regular basis
• Collaborate on account
selection, insight, and
the development of
“plays” (offers) for
target accounts
• Build and implement
integrated campaigns,
not separate or parallel
initiatives
Invest wisely in tools
and technology
• Focus first on core tools
for account insight,
campaign execution,
metrics, and relationship
management
• Focus next on process
improvement to:
• Improve efficiencies
• Ensure adoption and
know-how
• Facilitate marketing
asset reuse
• Leverage new tools to
deepen insight, extend
coverage, increase
automation, and
improve personalization
Balance online and
and offline tactics
• Digital is essential but
most B2B selling still
requires personal
interaction
• Tailor multi-tactic
campaigns based on
account-specific insight
and content
• Leverage digital to
maximize the impact of
offline tactics such as
events

Final
thought…
Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017
“In my 20 year marketing career, I have found working within an ABM program to
be very rewarding as we are learning directly from our customers how we can
best support their relationship with us.
When we plan our marketing strategy, we're not making decisions in a vacuum or
relying solely on sales insight, we're making decisions with customer insight.”
Amy Craven, Team Lead, Account-Based Marketing Program Office,
North America Marketing, SAP

ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Leadership Survey: Driving Growth with Three Types of ABM

  • 1. + Driving Growth with Three Types of ABM HowCompaniesAreLeveragingABMforMaximumBusiness Impact Julie SchwartzSeniorVice President,Research andThoughtLeadership,ITSMA Research Report | August 2017 Key Findings from 2017 ABM Benchmark Study
  • 2. Driving Growth with Three Types of ABM | Research Report | SV4603R © 2017 ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance. All rights reserved. www.itsma.com 2 Introduction The recent rise of account-based marketing (ABM) is nothing short of remarkable.From a special initiative that a handful of B2B pioneers developed to drive growth with top accounts in the early 2000s, ABM is now a mainstream strategy that companies are implementing with hundreds or even thousands of accounts with a wide range of programs and objectives. This research report highlights the main reason for such dramatic growth: ABM works! In fact,as the report shows,a full 87% of marketers implementing ABM say that it provides higher ROI than any other type of marketing.Similarly, strong majorities say that ABM drives improvement in the“Three R’s”of strategic marketing: Reputation, Relationships, and Revenue. More generally,the report provides an essential review of the current state of play with ABM,with data and insight on such issues as budgets and staffing,account selection,collaboration with sales,tools and technology,campaign tactics,programmatic challenges,and,of course,business benefits. In conducting the research,ITSMA and the ABM Leadership Alliance also focused on the three distinct types of ABM that have emerged in recent years: One-to-One, One-to-Few, and One-to-Many. Most companies are currently engaged in just one of these types,but a growing number are experimenting with two of them,and many more plan to move to a blended strategy over the next few years.The research underscores the key challenges marketers are facing and the specific ways they are addressing them. The report is certainly not the last word in ABM; it’s a fast-changing discipline and practitioners are still just scratching the surface of its full potential as a business strategy and approach.Please join the conversation by adding your questions,comments,and experiences to the mix.We look forward to talking soon! Julie Schwartz,on behalf of ITSMA and the ABM Leadership Alliance

All rights reserved. www.itsma.com 4 Key Takeaways: Getting the most from your ABM initiative Invest in ABM; it’s worth it! • Make a long-term commitment; ABM results improve with experience • Allocate budget even if that means stopping other marketing programs; ABM ROI is higher when compared to traditional marketing Optimize results with a blended approach • Understand the role each type of ABM can play in supporting key business objectives: segment accounts and initiatives accordingly • Broaden and deepen your programs in lockstep with sales to ensure coverage and an integrated approach Collaborate actively with sales • Define program objectives and approaches together; review plans and results on a regular basis • Collaborate on account selection, insight, and the development of “plays” (offers) for target accounts • Build and implement integrated campaigns, not separate or parallel initiatives Invest wisely in tools and technology • Focus first on core tools for account insight, campaign execution, metrics, and relationship management • Focus next on process improvement to: • Improve efficiencies • Ensure adoption and know-how • Facilitate marketing asset reuse • Leverage new tools to deepen insight, extend coverage, increase automation, and improve personalization Balance online and and offline tactics • Digital is essential but most B2B selling still requires personal interaction • Tailor multi-tactic campaigns based on account-specific insight and content • Leverage digital to maximize the impact of offline tactics such as events

As the approach has taken off,so too have the number of definitions.Even the sponsors of this research have used different definitions in the past.

With our first pilot, we achieved a 36% account-to-meeting conversion rate!” Lisa Skinner, Vice President, Demand Generation, Localytics “As opposed to mass marketing, ABM works because it’s so targeted and strategic. It keeps our sales channels focused on the end results because we have really long sales cycles.” Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company “We’ve proven that ABM is a successful part of what we do in marketing. Without ABM we'd be struggling to achieve our KPIs. So ABM is kind of a hero.” Andrea Clatworthy, Head of Account Based and Deal Based Marketing, EMEIA, Fujitsu %

We're implementing marketing automation this year,which will enable us to expand our account coverage via other forms of ABM.” Andrea Clatworthy, Head of Account Based and Deal Based Marketing, EMEIA, Fujitsu “We’ve built quite a rigorous dashboard and an attribution model. We are currently doing some pilots to create additional personalized experiences for our customers, but I would say we are too early to report any results.” Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business “This year,we have begun a ‘digital first’ strategy in ABM to transform the way we engage with our customers, determine how we invest and measure success, and leverage technologies to help us scale.” Raianne Reiss, Director, Americas Marketing,Juniper Driving Growth with Three Types of ABM | Research Report | SV4603R © 2017 ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance.

We have created a mobile app across industry verticals, and our ABM accounts within them, to provide all collaborators easy access to our ABM framework and the bespoke content.” Abhishek Mendiratta, Sr. Director, Marketing & Demand Generation, HCL America Educating people (sales and field marketing) on what ABM is and how it is done Developing campaign assets that are mass customizable to allow scale Personalizing and tailoring our marketing to the key contacts at each account “Our first line of defense is always to make sure that if someone's already doing something that we can leverage, we start there first and not build something new.” Amy Craven, Team Lead, Account-Based Marketing Program Office, North America Marketing, SAP “We have corporate and campaign teams that deliver great content, but ABM customers are often at the bleeding edge and their content needs are ahead of a typical campaign timeline. To be relevant, we need content that helps these customers think about issues in a new way and this content is often in the heads of our thought leaders. This is why live events are a popular tool in ABM.” Raianne Reiss, Director, Americas Marketing, Juniper “We need to tailor our content so we do a lot of A/B testing. We see which personas respond to what kind of content. We measure everything, and then show more of that type of content to those types of people.” Masha Finkelstein, Director, Demand Generation, BetterWorks “ABM marketers work very closely with the campaign planning, demand generation, and events teams. They also work closely with the brand teams to create a unique theme or message for each of our One-to-One ABM accounts.” Abhishek Mendiratta, Sr. Director, Marketing & Demand Generation, HCL America “You have to raise awareness. One of the things I'm doing this year is rolling out web-based ABM training for general marketing and another course for others in the company. The goal is to get the essence of ABM across to them so they can start thinking about and adopting some of the successful techniques.” Andrea Clatworthy, Head of Account Based and Deal Based Marketing, EMEIA, Fujitsu Driving Growth with Three Types of ABM | Research Report | SV4603R © 2017 ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance.

We look at two main things: • Transformation potential—we use intent data in combination with account team insight • Account Team relationship—our ability to execute successfully with the account team” Michael Avis, Senior Director, Account Based Marketing & Key Accounts, Oracle EMEA Marketing “The selection criteria changes as we learn and get more experience, but it's based on what we know works: • How the account perceives us • Relevance of our offers to the account (e.g., are they an early adopter of technology?) • Geographic location of the decision- making hierarchy (e.g., within the UK)” Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business “The initial target account list came directly from sales. Now we are adding signal intent. We'll use artificial intelligence (AI) to see: • Who the people are and what they are doing on the web, such as keyword search and the articles that they're browsing • Who is researching right now • Account demographics: which accounts and people who resemble our current customers” Masha Finkelstein, Director, Demand Generation, BetterWorks Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017

It often takes time to first earn that trust with sales to get us to the point where we're talking with customers.” Amy Craven, Team Lead, Account-Based Marketing Program Office, North America Marketing, SAP “When we first started One-to-Many ABM, it was definitely a marketing initiative.When we moved to round two, we selected accounts with sales. Now for any marketing programs or money spent,we are totally in lock-step with the sales organization.” Lisa Skinner, Vice President, Demand Generation, Localytics “In the historic model, even though we thought we worked closely with sales,it was a hand-off. We sent them leads from Salesforce and wished them luck.With ABM, we work hand-in- hand at all stages of the buying process.” Edwin Van Riessen, Director, Demand Generation, Deluxe Corporation “Our salespeople really like having the support. I think many times salespeople feel like they go to marketing and they're just told,‘No, no, no.’ That’s all changed with ABM. Now sales says, ‘You guys are the only group that says yes.’” Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company “For the One-to-One ABM, marketing carries the head count and the program spend sits within the account P&Ls.This helps us align our investments and focus our efforts where they can drive the greatest impact.And it ensures that everyone has skin in the game,which makes for a much tighter, stronger,and more cohesive approach to our clients, moving beyond just collaboration into true partnership across marketing and sales.” Craig Rones, Vice President, Marketing, NTT DATA Services “ABM is 100% funded by marketing. This is something that I am working on because marketing only has so much budget.The business appetite is huge and they want to grow the program. Also,to be a truly equal partnership between sales and marketing,it needs to be co-funded.” Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017

These are our ultimate objectives.” Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business “We will conduct an end-of-year assessment of how many deals closed at the companies in the program, new revenue, and ABM ROI. • One-to-One ABM: We generally have several tactics in motion throughout the sales cycle so we can more accurately attribute success of the deal to ABM • One-to-Few ABM: We typically deploy fewer, broader tactics that help move the needle, but are harder to track back to ABM. We may focus on opening a new door or helping build a relationship. We still track new revenue and ROI, but the ties seem a bit looser For all kinds of ABM, we do a quarterly survey of our sales channel to gauge their satisfaction.” Marketing Director, ABM, Global B2B Information Services Company Source: ITSMA and ABM Leadership Alliance Account-Based Marketing Benchmarking Survey, July 2017 “In the early stages after we launched account-based marketing, people would ask us,‘How's it going?’ We needed something that showed early traction. We couldn’t wait until the sales accepted leads turned into revenue. That is why we created the engagement score—lead scores in Marketo rolled up at the account level.” Edwin Van Riessen, Director, Demand Generation, Deluxe Corporation

Because we had such great results they asked us to bump the program up from 8 accounts to 110. The way to do that was to create the next tier on a sector- rather than an account-level. 80% is consistent across the sector with only 20% customized.” Stephanie Deane, Head of Marketing, ABM and Advocacy, O2 Business “We started with a list of the Fortune 1000 accounts.The goal was to identify accounts that are more likely to convert and become our customers using AI and predictive analytics. Right now we only do one-to-one marketing on request.Sales will come to us and ask if we can do something to help move a prospect along.We suggest ideas and execute.” Masha Finkelstein, Director, Demand Generation, BetterWorks “Like many companies,we segment our market and have a classic pyramid with key accounts at the top and the volume-market towards the bottom. We’re getting smarter as an organization on using appropriate forms of ABM on that pyramid.ABM can manifest itself in different ways, according to which customers you’re trying to reach.” Michael Avis, Senior Director, Account Based Marketing & Key Accounts, Oracle EMEA Marketing
