ACCOUNT BASED ADVERTISING

Demandbase Delivers Account-Based Advertising for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Adobe, Bing and Google

Demandbase | December 16, 2021

Account-Based Advertising
Today Demandbase, the B2B go-to-market leader, breaks ground with new Audience Management Destinations for Demandbase One that bring the power of account intelligence to social advertising. B2B marketers will be able to reach account-based targets on traditionally consumer platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google, YouTube, Bing, and Adobe, as well as an expanded integration with LinkedIn. This new functionality is yet another way Demandbase enables marketers to personalize the buying experience, recognizing that members of an account-based buying committee are individuals, as well as business professionals. Today’s announcement is part of Demandbase’s mission to transform how B2B companies go to market, with Demandbase One as the essential orchestration hub.

“We’re constantly learning about how the B2B buyer thinks and acts, and this new account-based social targeting functionality plays a role in reaching buyers more holistically,” says Jon Miller, chief marketing and product officer at Demandbase. “By viewing the buyer not just as someone within a target account or in a buying committee, we recognize that buyers are individuals, too. This mindset shift — and the corresponding ability to engage with them as such across business and social platforms — gives our customers yet another advantage in today’s B2B go-to-market landscape.”

Demandbase’s new Destinations will enable customers to use selectors, first-party data, third-party data, intent, technographics, activities and more to define an audience in Demandbase, then specifically target those buyers across the business and social web. The end result is a highly consistent customer experience across social networks and other platforms.

Demandbase is the only solution that lets you run people and account-based plays from one system. You can target a precise audience through our segmentation and data orchestration engine, then automatically apply the most effective sales and marketing tactics to advance the account in its journey, across every touchpoint and with the most relevant messages. For example, you will be able to target in-market accounts with paid ads, and automatically add these accounts to an audience in the new people-based Destinations to ensure a consistent message to your target audiences on Facebook, Twitter, Google, or other channels — and all while adhering to privacy guidelines.

“With the new integrations, we’ll now be able to automatically orchestrate account-based experiences across all networks and platforms,” says Oleg A. Solodyankin, CEO at Ignitium. “We’re looking forward to helping revenue teams drive more pipeline with Demandbase.”

About Demandbase
Demandbase is transforming the way B2B companies go-to-market. Demandbase One is the most complete suite of B2B go-to-market solutions, connecting the leading account-based experience, advertising, sales intelligence, and B2B data solutions so Marketing and Sales teams at the biggest and fastest-growing companies can collaborate faster, share intelligence, and experience explosive growth.

Through AI and machine learning, Metadata frees B2B marketers from having to manually do these tasks so they can spend their time on the work that matters most: strategy, creativity, and experimentation. B2B marketers use Metadata to automate these tasks, optimize their campaigns to revenue, and drastically scale their performance before needing more resources. “In 2021, the Metadata platform executed nearly $50 million of digital spend for over 150 customers across Facebook, LinkedIn, Google, Quora, and Display, resulting in over $130 million in marketing-sourced pipeline and over $2 billion of influenced pipeline,” said Gil Allouche, Metadata CEO.

This funding validates the market demand for our technology and will help us develop this technology further.” Matthew Cowan, General Partner at Next47, views Metadata’s loyal customer base as a strong indicator of future success. “When speaking with dozens of Metadata customers, it was clear that Metadata is a vital part of their operations. Metadata’s commitment to their customers is evident in their growth and the tangible results they’ve provided B2B marketers,” said Cowan. “Their vision of building the first operating system for B2B marketing is exactly what this industry needs. As we were looking to make investments in truly disruptive marketing technologies, Metadata's vision, combined with their current performance, and future trajectory, is what compelled us to lead this round of funding with them.” Raanan Bar-Cohen, founding partner at Resolute Ventures, who led Metadata’s Series A round, has seen, firsthand, the impact Metadata is having on its customers. “We’re not surprised by Metadata’s consistent ‘up and to the right’ trajectory,” said Bar-Cohen. “Gil and his team have shown a commitment to technology innovation and customer obsession, in a space that is busy with undifferentiated tech.
