Target Account List

A target account list is a list of accounts that you plan to advertise to for your campaign. Your contract will indicate the number of accounts that are available for you to target.

There are several options available for creating a target account list:

  • Utilize your own curated list of accounts
    • Upload via CSV
    • Upload via a Salesforce Report URL
  • Leverage the Demandbase ABM Platform to produce a list:
    • Account Selection - Demandbase AI recommends target accounts for you.
    • Firmographics - Generates a list of up to 5,000 accounts that meet your organization's specific criteria. You can filter by employee size, revenue range, industry, and location.
