Digital Marketing | Global

Account-Based Marketing (ABM) is a highly-personalized, high-touch, extremely-targeted approach to creating and executing marketing campaigns.
A very high level of targeting and personalization is possible thanks to different technologies. Some account-based marketing providers start with a list of individuals at the target companies. And since they are targeting individuals, not locations, it doesn’t matter if someone is in the office, on the road or at home. This approach relies on the availability of 3rd party data and has big limitations because of data privacy concerns.
