Account-based marketing (ABM) is getting a lot of interest from marketers in B2B as a strategy that radically upends and refocuses the way that businesses approach marketing outreach.

Essentially, account-based marketing – as the name implies – focuses marketers’ efforts on the accounts that matter most.

It’s an approach that might seem, at first brush, to be at odds with content marketing, which is typically used for outreach, visibility and awareness, and generating top-of-the-funnel interest. Concerned content marketers might be asking: how exactly is our content strategy meant to fit with ABM?
