ABM Strategy: 3 Tips for Aligning Your Sales + Marketing Teams
Ginny Grimsley, Feb 13, 2023 9:00:00 AM
Account-based marketing (ABM) is a growth strategy that helps sales and marketing teams collaborate on creating a buyer experience for a mutually decided upon set of high-value accounts.
Basically, it allows your entire RevOps team to focus on and acquire more of your North Star clients.
But your sales and marketing teams must agree on who those North Star clients are, how to approach them, and what success looks like at the end of the day.
And for two teams that don’t always see eye to eye, that can be tough.
But there’s a solution. HubSpot.
HubSpot can help with the top 3 tips for aligning your sales and marketing team for your ABM campaigns:
- Establish Clear Communication + Goals
- Create a Seamless Handoff Process
- Track Metrics
Establish Clear Communication and Goals
Establishing clear communication and goals can be achieved by setting up regular meetings between the two teams, as well as creating shared documents and dashboards that track progress towards goals.
HubSpot can be a great tool for this, as it has a variety of features that allow you to:
- track leads
- monitor website traffic
- analyze data, and more.
By using HubSpot, you can create a centralized location where both teams can access and share important data and information regarding your ABM efforts.
Create a Seamless Handoff Process
Leads should be passed from marketing to sales efficiently and effectively in business, especially during an ABM campaign.
HubSpot can help with this by allowing you to set up workflows and automation that automatically move leads through the sales funnel.
This can help to ensure that leads are followed up on in a timely manner and that the sales team is always working with the most up-to-date information.
Leverage HubSpot to Track Metrics
It’s important to track metrics in order to measure the success of your ABM efforts.
HubSpot provides a variety of analytics and reporting features that can help you track key metrics such as:
- lead conversion rates
- website traffic
- ROI, and more.
By tracking these metrics, you can identify areas where your teams are performing well and areas where they need improvement. This can help you to make data-driven decisions and optimize your ABM efforts.
