    Content is still king, and this doesn’t change with ABM. As you may already know, it is getting more important every day -- search engines are focusing more on the content you create as the potential of the online world as a marketing tool becomes apparent. Now there’s a push to create current, relevant content that you can use to promote your business' products and services.

      77%

    Correct Answer
    C. 92%
    Explanation
    A 2015 survey by Sirius Decisions found that 92 percent of companies recognize the value in ABM. This is not just a fad. It’s a real solution to B2B marketing challenges.

  • 5. 

    After you’ve assessed your current data set, what’s next?

    • A.

      Conduct an employee data boot camp

    • B.

      Segment your current data state.

    • C.

      Add more data to your current solution

    • D.

      Hire more data scientists and analysts

    Correct Answer
    B. Segment your current data state.
    Explanation
    Without using some thoughtful engineering to really segment your data into smaller groups for an “actionable universe,” you’re not practicing ABM – you’re just doing regular marketing. In an account-based marketing segmentation strategy, segments should be built around account data such as industry type, company size, company revenue, number of employees, etc.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is the primary factor holding teams back from implementing ABM?

    • A.

    • C.

      The need for more data

    • D.

      The need for more money

    Correct Answer
    A. The need for cleansed and accurate data
    Explanation
    Assess your data first and make sure it’s accurate, cleansed, and current. Last year, SiriusDecisions found that 60 percent of marketers consider the overall health of their data as unreliable. Take a look at your current data set before you go crazy with new data.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Now that you’ve segmented your data, what is the next step? 

    • A.

      Attend every webinar, conference and meet-up about ABM.

    • B.

      Spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone else get your team in check.

    • C.

      Purchase every piece of ABM technology you can find.

    • D.

      Align your sales and marketing teams.

    Correct Answer
    D. Align your sales and marketing teams.
    Explanation
    According to the 2016 survey data, 60% of companies practicing account-based marketing report that their sales and marketing teams are "somewhat" or "tightly" aligned, compared to only 34% in 2015.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is the next step after-sales alignment?  

    • A.

      Immediately start reaching out to new targets.

    • B.

      Conduct deep account and market research.

    • C.

      Check the box: sales and marketing met, so you are good to go.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. Conduct deep account and market research.
    Explanation
    Time to roll up your sleeves and start researching. Once you’ve segmented your data, you need to align with sales around target accounts in those segments. These accounts can be existing customers or new prospects, but regardless, make sure you do your due diligence. Of those companies SiriusDecisions surveyed that are practicing account-based marketing, sales helps marketing determine target accounts 83% of the time.
