Gone are the days for targeting only individual decision-maker. Nowadays, the definition of targeting the right account is changed. Now, you have to prey for multiple influencers or decision-makers of the company, and this happens with most of the accounts. No one is stick to the single influencer.
This has to happen because each card plays its own role in benefitting the company. What I mean to say is, every authorized employee has its set of say, coercion, or ideas to decide which solution fits perfectly to a particular service.
Hence, businesses cannot think of sticking to a single decision maker. Your ABM plan should inscribe the picky aspects of selling the ‘lot’. You should understand the pain-points of their business and then educate them, about their problem areas constructively!

You must understand the stakeholders’ picky points and address them effectively, try to build his trust. That Yes! he is the one who can resolve the particular issue. For this, you can send personalized messages and emails. ‘Right’ engaging content is set only when sales and marketing teams work together. Think about this.
4. Right Content Requires Right Channel

How to choose the right channel?
Study and spy. What are the platforms, your stakeholders love the most? Understand their persona whenever they are spending time on social media platforms. Do they like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or any other? Identify and act.
