AI-Driven Content Intelligence Would Empower B2B Account-Based Marketing Strategies Deliver Personalization at the B2C Level!
B2B organizations driving Account-Based Marketing (ABM) strategies struggle to provide the personalization that business-to-consumer (B2C) buyers now expect. These more complex sales cycles require high-touch nurturing over longer periods of time across a matrix of decision makers. But hindered with marketing, sales, and service silos, most organizations can’t adapt fast enough to meet each stakeholder’s changing needs. This causes missed opportunities to serve timely content that could accelerate account engagement and progress a deal.
Idio CEO Edward Barrow, said, “We greatly respect Pega’s innovative solutions that power exceptional customer experiences for some of the largest clients in the world. Our approaches to predictive decisioning are very similar, and we look forward to bringing our experience of automating and personalizing complex B2B decision cycles to Pega’s global 3000 customers.”
