1. Know When to Designate a Client as a Strategic Account. Identify clients who contribute a significant amount of revenue to your company, and ask yourself, “If we lost this account, how much would we worry about filling the revenue gap?”
2. Select Your Strategic Account Manager (SAM) Carefully. Trying to get a farmer to hunt is futile. Some people are cut out for new business development, and others aren’t.
3. Know the Players inside the Strategic Account. Nothing will put a strategic account at greater risk than having only a single point of contact own all of the relationships in the account.
4. Build Dependency. Ideally, you want to become part of the fabric of your strategic account’s organization — in other words, you want them to be dependent on you.
5. Provide Insight to Create Value for the Client’s Business. Here’s where you need to look beyond the obvious and seek new win-win opportunities in your client’s business.
6. Validate the Plan. Strategic account management is an important job that requires rigor and discipline. Think of it as running a business within your business.

1 hours ago Whenever key account management strategies implemented, it is vital to start small. Not every account is going to be a key account from the beginning. The account is short in terms of business volume and then slowly grows to a medium potential account and finally becomes a high potential account which would be designated as a key account.

1. Recognize that KAM is an organizational change, not a sales technique. KAM implementations take years, not months. The companies which have implemented KAM most successfully have been those who thought of it as a change in the way they did business, not as something that is confined to the Sales department.
2. Get high-level buy-in. An organizational change of this magnitude requires high-level sponsorship, preferably C-suite. The best companies, such as Rolls-Royce and Siemens, have high-level sponsors for each of their key accounts.
3. Appoint a KAM champion. Once the organization has accepted that it is embarking on a major change, and senior managers understand what KAM is and have bought in to it, the next step is to find someone who is going to champion the KAM program and drive the implementation.
4. Identify your key accounts — carefully. To get the KAM program started, you need to identify some key accounts, and you need to develop an offer that differentiates them from the rest of the customer base.
5. Appoint and train your key account managers. Many organizations make the mistake of simply moving their best sales people into key account manager roles.
6. Set the right metrics. What gets measured gets managed. If you have tasked your key account managers to build long-term relationships with their customers, don’t carry on rewarding them as though they were doing a standard sales job.
7. Benchmark and build. Your key account program should not be static over time. Instead, you should keep it refreshed. One way is by moving new key accounts into the program (and occasionally moving former key accounts out if they no longer match up).

1. Assign dedicated strategic account managers. The first step to a successful program is to assign dedicated account managers who are separate from sales.
2. Develop selection criteria for key accounts. While all customers are valuable, not all customers can be elevated to a key account. Be selective. Strategic accounts are reserved for customers whose partnerships can propel your organization toward its goals.
3. Polish the handoff from sales. An oft-overlooked step in the SAM process is the transition from sales to account management. How well you handle account transitions is an important part of building a trusted relationship with your customers.
4. Create a comprehensive customer profile. Once you have a selection process in place and you have identified and assigned your key accounts, you’ll need to develop in-depth customer portfolios.
5. Conduct a needs assessment. With your portfolio of customer research, the next step is to conduct a needs assessment. Consider: What are the organization’s pain points?
6. Draft a strategic plan and proposal. Based on your needs assessment, drill down to the best strategic opportunities and draft an account plan. This plan is your strategic roadmap for the next 1-3 years.
7. Set a cadence for contacts, meetings, and follow-ups. Once you have a strategic plan in place, set a regular cadence for ongoing communication with your key accounts.
8. Monitor performance. Continually monitor and measure your performance on each account. What progress have you made on your short-term and long-term goals?
