Assessing Account-Based Marketing (ABM)

This past year seems to have been the ‘Year of ABM!’ We’re helping clients kick off new ABM programs every week! If that’s something you’re considering, then I recommend you check out our recent webinar with Forrester. I had a great conversation with Alisa Groocock – we talked ABM readiness, structure, risks, and of course – sales and marketing alignment! Check out the recording!

As always, don’t hesitate to call me to brainstorm or just say hello.

Looking forward,
