So, you’re an ABM marketer of a little fish in a sea of big fish.

A lot of people think that marketing a small to medium-sized B2B company in a market dominated by giants is all about awareness.

The problem is companies looking to hire a new player instead of an established one aren’t making that decision based on their awareness of your company.

They are asking themselves questions like:

“Do I have the confidence that this vendor has the capabilities of delivering what they say?” 

“If something goes wrong, will they help me or abuse the situation?”

“Are they trying to convince me to adopt something totally new or are they a better version of something I already believe in?”

This is especially true for large deals.

On this #TakeOverTuesday, Chris Engman CRO, CMO and lead investor at Proof Analytics joins the show to talk about:

  • 4 big failures in ABM
  • 2 key ways to win

Chris Engman is also an author of the amazing book Megadeals, a deep analysis of what goes into landing large, complex B2B deals.
