Create an Account-based Audience

Find more business contacts at the companies on your input list

You have companies that you already do business with, and want to be able to reach more people at these companies. Account-based marketing (ABM) makes it more likely key decision makers at a company recognize and trust your brand and offerings, which makes it more likely they're on board when a buying decision is being made.

Create an Account-based audience to extend your marketing reach into the companies you want to do business with. Import a list with the companies you want to connect with, and create an Account-based audience to add more business contacts at those companies.

Account-based audiences include contact and company information for additional business people working at the companies in your input list.

If your input list was generated by Versium REACH, you won’t need to do any Input Mapping.

  1. In the Optional Filters step, select any filters for titles, locations, or how many contacts you’d like for each company on your list. Keep your eye on the Estimated contacts available number to see how many contacts fit those filters. Set the location filter to target records by company headquarters location or by the employee's (person's) location.
  2. Select Next Step.
  1. Create or choose a project for your audience, and click Create.

Versium REACH will start creating your audience. You can leave this screen and come back later when the audience is complete.
