The first-ever B2B Sales & Marketing Exhange event is just a couple weeks away, and all of us here at Demand Gen Report are buzzing with excitement. This new event is bringing together three top-tier marketing conferences — REVTalks, FlipMyFunnel and the Demand Gen Summit — under one roof (the roof being that of the immaculate Encore Boston Harbor).
For some background, the Demand Gen Summit track is a staple of the B2B Marketing Exchange, a best-in-class marketing event that takes place every February in Scottsdale, Ariz. REVTalks presents straight-to-the-point storytelling from revenue marketing superstars sharing how they accomplished revenue impact at their business. FlipMyFunnel brings the popular podcast series to life to showcase the best strategies for applying account-based principles to go-to-market strategies.
As an avid podcast listener (think “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and “WTF With Marc Maron”), I love tuning into the “FlipMyFunnel” podcast to get unique perspectives on all things ABM, content marketing, martech and more. For me, it’s a fascinating way to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in B2B without having to thumb through a 30-page E-book.
Ahead of #B2BSMX, we’re showcasing five of our favorite “FlipMyFunnel” podcasts to get you pumped for the event. Dive into these podcasts to get a taste of what you can expect from the track.

Spoiler alert: you’ll hear about the strategy that — after years of pursuit — finally won over astronaut Neil Armstrong.
ABM is not an overnight process. It often takes a few weeks, if not months, to see success from these highly personalized plays. In this episode, Megan Lueders of Zenoss addresses how to convince your board that the benefits of ABM are worth the wait. She also shares how to layer ABM on top of the historical responsibilities of brand awareness, demand generation and acquisition.
