It s all well and good to say, We should get some of that sweet account-based marketing; I hear it s a gold mine.

But implementing a program in a strategic way takes a little more digging.

My favorite definition of ABM comes from Engagio CEO Jon Miller:

Account-based marketing: a strategic approach that coordinates personalized marketing and sales efforts to open doors and deepen engagement at specific accounts.

Instead of roping in and audience that might include your most valuable people, you re identifying the most valuable ones ahead of time and not wasting effort on anyone else.

Like content marketing, ABM is a concept that has been around for a long time, but technology makes it more feasible to do it at scale.

Marketing software has been evolving toward the goal of one-to-one marketing, says Engagio CEO and co-founder Jon Miller.

Miller, who also co-founded Marketo, told me that his career was inspired by the 1993 book, “The One to One Future: Building Relationships One Customer at a Time.” Written by customer strategy experts Don Peppers and Martha Rogers, it presented a vision of what might follow mass marketing.

Miller pointed out that the goal of a highly granular, targeted marketing could be fully achieved at mass scale by the first generation of marketing automation tools, which have been largely rules-based.

It needed a mature artificial intelligence to manage all those separate interactions with customers.

(Miller will speak about “The Evolution and Future of Martech” at our upcoming MarTech Conference in Boston.)

But, while AI can relieve marketers of some tasks — Miller likens it to auto-pilot in a plane, where the pilot can focus on where the vehicle is headed — he also points out that marketers are beset by thousands of choices for software tools.

When Brian Anderson first messaged Charlie Liang from Engagio to ask for a meeting, he couldn’t predict that his email would go viral.

Not only did Charlie agree to meet with Brian, he also featured the email and image in his LinkedIn post, “The Best Sales Prospecting Email Ever” with over 1,000 likes and 241 shares.

Here's a look at how that email could have been automated at scale.

He reveals the secrets of his success throughout this fascinating, eye-opening conversation (which includes a home truth about growth hacking.

)In the news, we discuss app marketing, a new report on app store optimization, an AI tool that automates the process of buying ads for apps, and a study that explains just how important native advertising has become.

Hint: With 600 percent growth in spend over the last three years, it’s pretty darn important.Next week, we interview the one and only Jon Miller, cofounder of Marketo and CEO of Engagio.

We discuss account-based marketing and how Marketo and Engagio are inherently different in their approach to lead generation.If you missed last week’s episode VB 047, Stewart and Travis interview John Rampton — entrepreneur and author — on a range of marketing-focused topics.

During this episode, he states that we’re now in a “pay-to-play world.” What does that mean, and where do we go next?

There are two things that make this conference one of my favorites:

If you’re wondering how industry leaders are practicing ABM, what works and what doesn’t, this is the session for you.

Jon Miller’s session will give you the inside scoop of how ABM works at Engagio and how you can orchestrate programs that get results.

Session: Account-Based Marketing: New Insights and Best Practices for 2020

Speaker: Jon Miller, CEO at Engagio

Jon’s session was filled with tons of great information on ABM from selecting accounts to creating engagement, marketing alignment, and measurement.

For certain stages, include the number of people who have individually reached an engagement threshold.

This can be used as criteria to determine if the account is ready to move to the next stage.

As the CEO and Co-founder of Engagio and Co-founder of Marketo, Jon shared his passion of analytics and his experience in what he refers to as account based everything.

As he began, he explained the difference between traditional inbound marketing and account based marketing through a unique analogy:

The demand generation method we historically used was similar to fishing with nets.

We didn t care which type of fish we caught, we were focused on getting a lot of fish.

“Salespeople rarely talk about how many leads they’ve closed – they talk about accounts they win,” says Brandon Redlinger, Director of Growth at Engagio.

You must support long, complex sales that involve many stakeholders at each target account.

Instead of spending sales and marketing resources on large amounts of individual leads, account-based marketing (ABM) focuses efforts instead on deepening engagement with a select group of target accounts most likely to generate the most revenue.

Here’s what he had to say:

First and foremost, find the right leader for your ABM team.

Account-based marketing (ABM) has rapidly gained traction as the latest B2B marketing buzzword in the past year.

But the buzz doesn’t tell the whole story.

ABM is a rapidly changing field and technology is allowing B2B marketers to scale their efforts like never before.

This opens the door great opportunities like FlipMyFunnel for marketers to come together and support each other by sharing best practices and stories.

It also means that it is prime time for vendors to innovate to meet the new and ever-changing demands of B2B marketers.

This year B2B News Network has joined FlipMyFunnel, Terminus, DiscoverOrg, Engagio, Evergage, LookBookHQ, Oceanos, PFL, SnapApp, Triblio,and Vidyard to survey marketers across a wide range of companies.

He was one of the greatest starship captains the galaxy has ever known, a shining beacon of intelligence, tolerance and empathy who made baldness look badass.

That's the question posed by the new trailer for Star Trek: Picard, a show that picks up the good captain's adventures years after we last saw Patrick Stewart take command of the USS Enterprise.

It's been exactly 25 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation ended, and nearly two decades since the last Star Trek movie with the TNG crew.

Disclosure: CNET earns commissions from the services featured on this page.

The show, which is expected to debut before the end of 2019, will explore why Picard abandoned the Enterprise and why he might be tempted to return.

The time-traveling finale of The Next Generation jumped from the first episode of the show to an imagined future where a mightily bearded Picard ran a vineyard.

Guest post by Jon Miller, CEO and Co-Founder of Engagio

B2B marketers work in an environment that is constantly evolving: technology is changing how buyers interact with brands and best practices are moving targets.

Of course there never has been, and never will be, a one-size-fits-all marketing strategy.

Vanity Metrics vs Target Account Influence

Most lead-based marketing metrics look good on paper, but don t impress the executive team and don t impact the business bottom line:

Clicks and Page Views—Lead based marketing tends to put a high value on these numbers because it means we ve created content that people are looking at.

Guest post by Katie Martell, On-Demand Marketing

I was recently discussing 2018 priorities with a Marketing Operations leader at an enterprise organization.

More of us should be having the conversation about how marketing can best support sales and in turn help the organization create a productive and positive experience for buyers.

Here at Allocadia we’re believers in the promise of ABM – we’ve organized around tiered levels of accounts, partnered with sales both on high-reach demand generation tactics and more targeted campaigns like direct mail and field workshops, and have invested into data and process around ABM with Engagio.

To answer that question, I’ll ask a few of my own:
