Panasonic – Account-based marketing (ABM) and account mapping with telemarketing
Discover how we helped Panasonic find relevant contacts, map target accounts, book meetings and find new business areas with telemarketing and account-based marketing (ABM).
Panasonic Corporation is a worldwide leader in the development of diverse electronics, technologies and solutions for customers in the consumer electronics, housing, automotive, and B2B businesses.
We started with a telemarketing pilot campaign that ended up as a yearly retainer. For the yearly plan, we focused on different initiatives per campaign. The overall goal was to generate leads and meetings, map accounts, and find new relevant business areas. Account-based marketing was the main strategy for all of this, meaning we focused on a specific list of accounts in a specific segment.
In this campaign, we promoted Panasonic’s rugged tablets solution. The target persona was IT, finance and users. It was important to understand the purchase process and reach relevant people with different roles in each segment. We targeted many different industries, and manufacturing, construction and healthcare were key sectors.

Our ABM approach
We got a list of target accounts from the client that we mapped based on different specifications. By identifying the need, position, contact persons, and organizational structure, we were able to provide key insights into each account. We also mapped industries with the goal of finding new segments and target groups.
