How the Terminus Fall Release Shines a Light at the Top of the Funnel

When I joined Terminus back in 2016, I announced my new position as CPO with a manifesto of sorts. As a product creator and innovator, I wanted to plant my flag in the next wave of leading B2B MarTech solutions and create something special with Terminus. That brief history of my MarTech journey still lives on LinkedIn, but in essence, I declared that I wanted to make things easier for marketers. Back then, account-based marketing was the new thing, but marketers were still waiting for form-fillers and hand-raisers, struggling to escape the lead rat race. The idea of actually “aligning with sales” was still, for the most part, just that — an idea.

The 5 Things to Know About Account-Based Marketing

Article | October 7, 2022

If you’ve been keeping up with new terms in B2B marketing, by now you’ve likely heard of account-based marketing (ABM). The term itself has been around for years, but with recent advances in technology, this tactic is now being adopted at a much larger scale than ever before. Still, surprisingly, I find that many B2B marketers are in the dark when it comes to ABM. So here’s a quick look into the future of B2B enterprise marketing, and why I think account-based marketing will be one of the biggest revenue drivers for B2B businesses in the very near future.

5 Steps for Succeeding in Account-Based Marketing

Article | August 3, 2022

Relative to the mass-market approach of the B2C world, B2B promotion requires a much more targeted approach. The customers are fewer and more discerning but commensurably more valuable and enduring so whether you’re trying to win over a new client or simply keep an existing client on your side, you need to be very careful with what you’re putting out. This is the reasoning behind account-based marketing, otherwise known as ABM. Instead of distributing generic marketing materials, it picks out specific prospects (or sets of prospects grouped by various shared elements) and creates personalized campaigns to suit them. It can be extremely cost-effective, but it needs to be done smartly (which isn’t easy). To help you run a flourishing account-based marketing campaign, we’re going to look at five steps you should take along the way.

How to Successfully Set Up and Measure Your Account-Based Marketing Strategy

Article | June 20, 2023

The first lesson in this article is to stop thinking differently about ABM and B2B. Sangram Vajre is spot on when he exclaims that “ABM is B2B.” There is no real difference. Whether named or unnamed, every single campaign you launch as a B2B marketer caters to personas in different accounts. Another reality about account-based marketing is that due to the nature of omnichannel marketing and the fact that every prospect does its own research, you’re going to have to process different sets of traffic no matter how much control you think you have over your funnels. With these two things in mind, let’s look at what’s common in a successful ABM strategy, and also how to segment your audience in a way that tells the story of all the steps in your user acquisition models.

ABM IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE ALIGNMENT OF SALES AND MARKETING TEAMS

Article | February 10, 2020

Account-Based Marketing has been one of the most preferred B2B strategies for marketers. More than 90% of marketers believe that ABM is essential for the alignment of sales and marketing teams. ABM is all about fostering a better relationship with your target accounts. And especially in this digital transformation era, it’s evident that people aren’t buying products but experiences. As per a recent PwC survey, “73% of consumers cite customer experience as an important factor in their purchasing decisions”. This shift in consumer behavior is what B2B companies/marketers should take note of. Also, ITSMA reports that of the companies that adopted ABM in the past two years, 55% are seeing a significantly higher ROI than with traditional marketing.

Terminus Delivers Unique Data Set to Fuel Go-to-Market Teams in a Post-Cookie World

Terminus | April 16, 2021

Terminus, the leading go-to-market network, has launched a new data set in response to Google's decision to phase out third-party cookies at the end of 2021. The fusion of Terminus Chat Experiences and Terminus Email Experiences gained from the acquisitions of Sigstr and Ramble is a significant step forward for go-to-market teams preparing for new ways to target without the use of third-party cookies. Terminus offers a one-of-a-kind data set based on household IP addresses obtained from its distinct Chat and Email Experiences product lines. Rather than relying on out-of-date data, such as form fills, Terminus can accurately track target accounts via email opens and identity data through chat, which is constantly updated for accuracy, and quickly track changing or modified IP addresses at a much higher pace than form fills. “The rubber has hit the wall, and businesses are scrambling to work out how to run digital advertisements without cookies. However, Terminus has been playing the long game for the last 18 months,” said Bryan Wade, Terminus' chief product officer. “When we bought Sigstr and Ramble, it was so much more than simply providing our clients with email signatures and chat functionality.” “The data we gather from these products, as well as how we obtain it, is entirely exclusive to Terminus. Customers not only have access to a whole new data set but one that is is reliable and extremely effective for targeting. “Email Service Provider (ESP) level data is rapidly becoming the most valuable data in ABM, and we are at the forefront of the evolution,” Wade said. Without access to email and chat IP data, advertisers are forced to rely on form fill and other historical data sets, which do not allow for changing IP addresses caused by service changes, downtime, or power outages, resulting in wasted ad expenditure. For example, the average person is subject to approximately 4,000 digital advertisements every day. When combined with an estimated CPM of $10, advertisers could be wasting thousands of dollars every day on mistargeted advertising. Mistargeted marketing spend skyrockets for businesses targeting accounts of thousands of employees.

Terminus has the best insights, channels, and analytics in a single platform, enabling high-performing go-to-market teams.
