Personalized engagements are the foundation of account-based marketing. Without customized and relevant content, B2B marketers cannot steer target accounts towards conversion, nor can they create a lasting relationship with them. That said, tailoring messaging for every contact on a target account’s buying committee
can be overwhelming because each contact is at a different stage in the buyer journey.
Marketing teams struggle to achieve optimal success at ABM because they cannot scale their content personalization efforts to create engagement to ease the work of the sales teams.
You can easily overcome these challenges with conversational ABM. Let us take a look at how:
Creates Meaningful Engagement
Buyers have evolved from engaging with marketing emails, ads, whitepapers, and webinars. They expect personalized two-way conversations that focus on their requirements and pain points. So it is no surprise that 90% of customers want to use messaging to communicate with businesses (Source: Twilio Customer Survey).
How does conversational ABM create meaningful engagement?
Did you know that when you contact a lead within the first hour, you are seven times more likely to qualify the prospect? (Source: Harvard Business Review)
Conversational ABM engages customers with real-time conversations using chat bots, voice bots, or interactive web pages. B2B companies engage in conversational ABM through social media, websites and paid advertising. These AI-powered conversations replace static lead capture forms with one-on-one conversations with target accounts. Target accounts can get in touch with your business and receive instantaneous responses. As they move through the funnel, they can have a seamless, personalized, consistent experience, thus increasing the likeliness of conversion and ensuring a holistic customer experience
Accelerates ABM Revenue
Conversational ABM drives engagement towards revenue-generating actions. It fuels your pipeline with leads who want to take the next step. Apart from doing this, conversational ABM also brings your sales and marketing teams together
and enhances the personalization quotient of your content. It routes your leads effectively through instantaneous responses and increases annual contract value (ACV) because your sales reps understand exactly what your customers want. Additionally, it automates messaging based on specific account attributes. These features help you put your ABM strategy into action and get the sales you want.
