Prerequisites 

This feature is currently available to all customers who have access to the Account Hub, and have completed their Hub setup. It is also recommended (but not required) that customers have our Sales Insights package installed. 

If you have questions regarding your current plan, please reach out to your Terminus Customer Success Manager.


Feature Overview

Account Insights provides an aggregated view of the most crucial buying signal data, (both known contact data and anonymous account-level insights) for your target accounts, and can be displayed right within Salesforce.

With Terminus’s previously released Sales Insights package, powered by Visitor ID and account-based advertising, users can easily create sales alerts and scheduled reports that tell reps which accounts they should be prioritizing each week. With Account Insights, reps can take their workflow a step further to understand who, within a specific account, they should reach out to, and how they should be tailoring their outreach based on areas of interest in that account. 

Customers can also view this information in the Account Hub, within the Account-Specific Page.

  • Was there a contact previously involved in an opportunity?
  • How much is marketing influencing this account?
  • Is this account anonymously browsing our digital properties?
  • What are the product lines this account is showing a spike of traffic for?
  • What are the trends of Bombora Intent Topics that are being researched anonymously?

People 

  • Who is known in the buying center?  Do we have all the right contacts?
  • How much activity do they have in the past 90 days?
  • What was the timeline of those activities?

Activities

  • What is the timeline of recent activities and opportunity stages?
  • What type of activities are having the most impact at this account?

Journey
