We want to hear from you one thing to do and one thing not to do when you're deploying an effective...

ABM strategy. Cool, hey, Sam, so let's talk with them. Not to do so that we end on the positive note. The Not to do is do not start buying tools and do not start sending in, spending tons of money, before you really get to understand the target audience persona. But Map your accounts and define your list. Doing that means this. Stock them in an official good way, not a bad way. Talk to some of them, understand what they care about, understand where they go to learn, understand what they hate, EG. Digital Spam and so forth. After you do that, take a subset and start working on your messaging and test it out. Only once you've done an ABM light mechanism by testing one too few, then you should start thinking about scaling it via tools, via spend, via direct mail. Starting to do that without really testing and going into an account based manner can be expensive and takes time, and that is counter...

...do it to you and your cell steam. The one thing to do is align yourself and yourselves leaders on what list makes the most sense, that you both agree, shake hands and decide this quarter we're going to go for this. Two other fifty accounts and we're going to work on them in an aligned manner between marketing, a cover and one to one hand battle by the videon sales. For example, let's say you put it together a very good road show at the end of the quarter or the lost four weeks of the porter. You want to make sure that not only marketing invites people to attend, but that you curate the agenda content and look at your clusters with most of your target accounts all and then make sure that your sells people help you curate the list of the speakers. Who is going to be the target a count executive? Who's going to be the people they're going to be in the next podcast? Only would you align then and everybody's boat into the mechanism. Then...

...you can succeed and have a quick velocity to AP apro alignment. The key to all success in life is making sure that everybody is singing from the same hymnal as they say, alone.
