In an account-based marketing model, SDRs are critical. Marketing resources are focused more on a narrower set of targets. Each lead is even more likely to be a good fit than traditional B2B marketing, as the account has been targeted more precisely with personalized content based on their interests and current activity. Each lead is even more precious, so getting these leads over the metaphorical threshold is even more important.
Account-based Marketing Strategy
Account-based Marketing (ABM) is becoming THE way technology and services companies build their B2B revenues. It is catching on in healthcare and with good reason. Healthcare buying processes are complex, involve many stakeholders and take forever.
The discipline and technology-enabled tactics of an ABM strategy can help any business selling to healthcare organizations improve their win rate, shorten the sales cycle and increase deal sizes. The problem is that implementing ABM successfully is hard. It takes time, experimentation and expertise to master ABM. We can help you get their faster and more successfully with an improved strategy.
