G2, the business software and services review site and marketplace, has added new ABM integrations to its existing integrations with LinkedIn Matched Audiences, Terminus, and Metadata. The new additions to the list are Demandbase, 6Sense, RollWorks and Triblio.

One of G2’s offerings allows vendor subscribers to track target accounts viewing their profile, their category or their competitors. The intent data informs B2B marketers about where accounts are at in their purchase journeys, while the integrations serve to automatically push the data into the ABM platforms for activation

Why we care. There are obvious advantages to having intent data ingested directly into an ABM platform. G2’s directory goes far beyond just marketing tech; this initiative should help any tech marketing org to act more quickly when target accounts are in market.

While the roster is not comprehensive, G2 is now integrated with a number of the most prominent ABM players in the space.

Account-based marketing: A snapshot

What it is. Account-based marketing, or ABM, is a B2B marketing strategy that aligns sales and marketing efforts to focus on high-value accounts. 

This customer acquisition strategy focuses on delivering promotions — advertising, direct mail, content syndication, etc. — to targeted accounts. Individuals who may be involved in the purchase decision are targeted in a variety of ways, in order to soften the earth for the sales organization. 

Why it’s hot. Account-based marketing addresses changes in B2B buyer behavior. Buyers now do extensive online research before contacting sales, a trend that has accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. One of marketing’s tasks in an ABM strategy is to make certain its company’s message is reaching potential customers while they are doing their research. 

Why we care. Account engagement, win rate, average deal size, and ROI increase after implementing account-based marketing, according to a recent Forrester/SiriusDecisions survey. While B2B marketers benefit from that win rate, ABM vendors are also reaping the benefits as B2B marketers invest in these technologies and apply them to their channels.
