Executing Account-Based Marketing Campaigns with HubSpot
With these robust features in mind, let’s explore how to leverage HubSpot’s Sales Hub and Marketing Hub for your ABM initiatives:
Create a Target Account List
Build your target account list by utilizing AI-suggested target accounts, prospect insights from the prospecting tool, or importing target accounts via third-party integrations such as LinkedIn Sales Navigator.
Track Account Activity
Gain insights into account activity through the overview panel. This feature provides a comprehensive view of interactions across the buying committee, ensuring that sales and marketing teams are well-informed about the state of each target account.
Label your Ideal Customer Profile (ICP) tiers and buying roles with workflows, and use company lists to segment your target accounts and buying committees for effective company targeting in your campaigns.
Efficient Campaign Management
Plan and execute your ABM campaigns easily using HubSpot’s campaigns tool. You can incorporate social media, ads, landing pages, forms, emails, and more into a campaign to consolidate reporting and results across multiple assets.
Personalization & Engagement
Enhance your landing pages with smart content and A/B testing to offer a personalized experience. Implement chatbots to assist prospects in finding relevant information.
Continuous Segmentation and Optimization
Utilize workflows and third-party integrations to segment your lists and adjust account targeting based on engagement, intent, scoring, and more. Sync lifecycle stages with external ad platforms for improved AI optimization in your ad campaigns.
Automate Marketing Plays
Automate marketing plays based on buying roles, ICP tiers, buying stages, and more using workflows. Keep sales updated on account activity in real time through Slack integration.
Data Quality Assurance
Ensure data consistency between tools with the help of Operations Hub’s data quality features. Automate task assignments and notifications to streamline your sales team’s workload.
Effective Prospect Research
Use the LinkedIn Sales Navigator integration within HubSpot for timely and relevant outreach by researching active prospects and accounts.
Sequences and Personalization
Enroll buying committee members into sequences based on a wide range of trigger options. Suggest content for sales based on prospect consumption history, enhancing the personalization of their journey. Incorporate HubSpot videos for a personalized touch in your sales outreach.
Offline Marketing and Gifting
Implement workflows and offline marketing integrations like Postal.io to send gifts automatically to your buying committee. Consider the deal size, ICP tier, lifecycle, and deal stages.
Comprehensive Data Analysis
Analyze data across the buyer’s journey through HubSpot’s reports and dashboards. Collaborate on campaign changes using the campaign tool, and implement optimizations directly from the HubSpot platform.
Expanding the HubSpot Ecosystem for ABM Campaigns
Supplement your ABM campaigns with these integrations to enhance your efforts:
- ZoomInfo (Elite): Enrich contact data and leverage intent data for personalized targeting.
- Bombora (Ads or CRM product): Access intent data and deploy B2B audiences on various networks.
- G2/Gartner Media: Utilize software review platforms to target prospects who have shown interest in your product or category.
- Postal.io: Automate sending gifts to prospects based on their journey.
- Postalytics: Deploy direct mail campaigns based on HubSpot workflows for top-of-funnel awareness.
If you’re running ABM campaigns, HubSpot is your comprehensive solution. It offers numerous benefits, including team consolidation, transparency, robust automation, extensive integrations, personalized customer journeys, native ABM tools, real-time analysis, and omnichannel activity tracking.
Consider Combining Inbound Marketing and ABM
Inbound marketing and ABM strategies complement each other seamlessly, both centered on customer delight and value delivery. The synergy between these approaches lies in:
- Inbound’s customer-centric focus at every buyer journey stage.
- ABM’s personalized approach at scale targets entire accounts and buying committees.
- The alignment of sales and marketing for efficient lead prioritization.
Combining these practices creates a compelling customer experience that fosters engagement and trust.
HubSpot users have witnessed impressive results by combining the Marketing and Sales Hubs. Collaboration between sales and marketing has led to a 144% increase in closed deals after 12 months compared to scenarios where only one of the hubs was used.
These successful outcomes underscore the power of ABM, especially when integrated with inbound marketing within a streamlined system like HubSpot. It not only simplifies the process but also delivers exceptional results.
