How is the Corona Virus impacting client’s ABM campaigns?
The approach is still the same in that we’re all people first. There is not a difference between B2B and B2C. It’s just people to people marketing.
Being authentic and emphatic goes a long way. Connect with people on a human level first. Reach out and touch base with them on a personal basis, making sure they’re okay. Understand that people are taking time to understand this new world because nobody had a global pandemic playbook that they could bring up and start implementing.
As a result, clients are looking for is a consultative approach. They want to know what is going on in their market and when it is safe to launch a new ABM campaign.
What does the future look like for B2B Sales?
It depends what industry you’re in, what business you’re in. Some industries have been hit harder than others and will take longer to bounce back.
Many companies we work with have not cancelled campaigns, they have just pushed them off a few weeks or months. As a result, I do think we’ll have a strong second half of Q2 and then a robust second half of the year.
