Over the last decade new and welcomed strategies have revolutionized B2B marketing and sales. Technology innovations have largely driven this evolution.

For example, marketing automation systems paved the way for inbound marketing strategies and the importance of content, thought leadership, social media, etc.

Similarly, innovations in audience data (e.g., predictive analytics, firmographics, technographics, intent data) drove the broad adoption of account-based marketing and sales initiatives — despite forms of account-based marketing being around for decades.
