Demand Spring | September 20, 2022
Two-thirds of marketers have implemented ABM strategies in their organizations
BOSTON, MA – September 20, 2022 – Revenue Marketing consultancy Demand Spring today released their first annual State of Account-Based Marketing report.
Demand Spring surveyed marketers located across North America, from a variety of industries. From the 100 responses received, we learned that while two-thirds of respondents have implemented ABM as part of their marketing strategy, many marketers are still trying to determine the optimal execution for these strategies.
A number of key findings were uncovered in this survey:
One third of marketers have seen more than 50% return on investment through their ABM efforts.
74% of respondents identified generating new business as the primary goal of their ABM strategy.
53% of respondents reported that their ABM campaigns have generated more revenue than other marketing efforts.
47% of marketers surveyed stated they have seen a moderate increase in sales and marketing alignment since implementing account-based marketing.
Choosing the right target accounts was the top challenge (46%) identified by marketers in their ABM efforts. The two other main challenges survey respondents faced were delivering a personalized experience (39%) and selecting the right content and assets (34%).
“With customers demanding better experiences throughout their buying process, Demand Spring felt it was time to see how B2B organizations are delivering on the promise of experience, and what role ABM is playing in their strategies,” said Tracy Thayne, Vice President of Strategy Consulting with Demand Spring. “This report is our first on ABM, so it establishes a baseline for follow-up research and offers strong insights for marketers just getting started with account-based execution.”

People.ai | September 14, 2022
People.ai, the enterprise revenue intelligence leader, today announces the launch of its newest product capabilities, including Engagement Dashboards, Account Planning, and People.ai for Oracle Sales Cloud to help sales and ops teams drive greater efficiency, deeper relationships and clearer visibility.
According to LinkedIn's Global State of Sales 2022 report, sellers spend only 30% of their time actually selling, making automatic activity data capturing essential for reps to do the most important part of their job. Also noted in the report, 81% of sellers are losing deals from key contacts leaving client or prospect companies, and 45% say incomplete data is their biggest data challenge. More automation and visibility into pipeline means salespeople can win more deals and generate more revenue.
"The industry today has turned selling into an obstacle course, where reps need to navigate so many hurdles in order to actually do their job. We're clearing the pathway so teams can focus on what matters: building revenue," said Oleg Rogynskyy, CEO of People.ai.
