B2B marketers are facing the biggest driver of change since the arrival of inbound marketing: the transition toward Account-Based Marketing (ABM). For those who may not know the term, the general principle of ABM is, to loosely quote ad giant David Ogilvy, no longer counting the people you reach, but instead, reaching the people who count.Continue reading
Klar til at gå over til account-based marketing? Her er 5 aspekter, som ikke må slå fejl!
B2B-virksomheder står i øjeblikket over for den største drivkraft for forandring siden inbound marketing – omstillingen til account-based marketing (ABM).
