Introduction To Account Lists

Prerequisites

This feature is available to customers whose subscription includes the Terminus Account Hub.


What are Account Lists?

Account Lists are a cohort of accounts that a team intends to run programs to and measure over a specific period of time, such as a month or a quarter. In the Terminus platform, Account Lists can be used to coordinate and prioritize your target accounts by analyzing their marketing, sales, and web activity, along with key firmographics. By creating an Account List, you’ll be able to run programs into those accounts, or segments of those accounts, and measure the results over a prescribed time period.

Here are examples of some typical Account Lists:

  • Q1 Mid-Market SDR Tier 1 List: A list of new mid-sized accounts that show in-market signals (such as intent for your solution), that your SDR teams will work to activate over a specific quarter.
  • Annual Enterprise Key Account List: A list of key enterprise accounts and logos that you want to acquire or progress in a specific year.
  • Single-Product Quarterly Renewal Engagement List: A list of accounts using one of your offerings, with renewal dates in a specific quarter, with which you’d like to support expansion deals.


How to Use Account Lists

You should create an account list when:

  • You have a specific cohort of accounts, and you want to measure the progress of those accounts towards revenue over a specific time period
  • You want to test the effectiveness of certain programs, or compare engagement and success rates across certain segments of accounts
  • You want to easily share relevant engagement data and funnel progress on different target account segments or business units externally (re: via .CSV export)

You do not need to create a new list each time you want to:

  • Run a new marketing campaign
  • Launch a new Terminus advertising tactic (*Note: In upcoming release, users will be able to segment their Account Lists within the Engage product to further define their target audience in an advertising tactic. This will help maintain the integrity of the original list, and will also serve as an alternative to creating multiple lists just for advertising)


Adding Accounts to a New List

By selecting the checkboxes to the left of the Account name, you will be selecting that Account for inclusion within a defined list. Users have the option to select the current accounts displayed, individual accounts, or all accounts that meet the given criteria.
