2017 predictions: Why artificial intelligence will blow account-based marketing out of the water
Account-based marketing (ABM) has become a staple in B2B marketing today, and columnist Peter Isaacson believes that artificial intelligence (AI) will take it even further, making hyper-personalization at scale possible.
