Overall Satisfaction with Terminus ABM Platform

We use Terminus ABM Platform to serve display ads to target accounts. We operate with a very tightly defined list of target accounts as part of our ABM sales and marketing strategy, and Terminus ABM Platform allows us to run awareness and lead gen campaigns specifically targeting just those accounts.

We also use intent data within Terminus ABM Platform to tailor the advertising which we are serving to a particular account. Those target lists are also synced to LinkedIn Ads to give us a similar level of targeting in LinkedIn. This data also helps inform our more [hands-on] sales activity with those accounts all the way through the funnel.
  • Serving account targeted ads across a wide range of display ad providers
  • Matching account based browsing data to target lists
  • Identifying need and interest in particular accounts with intent data
  • Identifying anonymous web traffic on our site from target accounts
  • Reporting on ABM activity and metrics
  • Integration with HubSpot is lacking
  • Interface can be slow and a bit clunky at times
  • Certain functions still rely on the Terminus ABM Platform support team manually configuring things for us (including simply adding a user to our account)
  • Given us a significant increase in visibility within our target accounts
  • Increase organic web traffic from target accounts
  • Given use the ability to measure and track those metrics over time (we previously didn't have the ability to track most of the data Terminus ABM Platform gives us, so it's hard to compare before and after, but can see [an] increase since using Terminus ABM Platform)
Where Terminus ABM Platform was better than other options we evaluated: Much better quality and reach of [the] display network. More ability to tweak display network preferences and do things like contextual content targeting. Good control over ad budgets and pacing with separation of campaigns and tactics to create multiple levels of control. Good quality intent data with international coverage (via Bomborra).

Where Terminus ABM Platform wasn't as good as other options we evaluated: Heavy reliance on [a] manual setup from support for some functionality. Ad library setup is fairly basic.

Did implementation of Terminus ABM Platform go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Terminus ABM Platform again?

Yes

Terminus ABM Platform is ideal if you have a strong ABM focus, as the name would suggest. If you're focused on building awareness and providing "air cover" to support sales activity, I think it's great – they have a clear advantage in the quality of display ad networks they can serve content on.

Probably not so useful if you're operating with a more traditional inbound strategy as display ads tend to be better for the above use case than lead generation campaigns. However, that said, it gives much better retargeting capability than other platforms, so that would be useful in supporting inbound campaigns.

Using Terminus ABM Platform

3 - Everyone who uses the Terminus ABM Platform is from in the marketing function. Our sales team [gets] weekly alert emails but never [has] to log in to the software, which was actually quite important to us, as we try to avoid having too many products in active use in our sales tech stack.
  • ABM Display advertising
  • Measuring ABM effectiveness
  • Target account web activity monitoring
  • Intent data monitoring
  • Monitoring organic web traffic to gauge awareness and track view through visits was not something originally on our list of requirements, but is very useful.
  • We like the idea of getting more tailored in the content we display to target accounts on our website, and would look in the future to using the web module, and probably also the email module.
Does what it says on the box. The display ad network quality is the key differentiator.
