Mollie Bodensteiner, Vice President of Marketing at FunnelWise, was one of the first people to take on the challenge of implementing the Demand Unit Waterfall.
The Waterfall aligned well to FunnelWise’s ABM strategy, so Mollie went all in. She started doing research, and there wasn’t a lot out there about how to build it within your Salesforce and marketing automation platforms. That’s when she dove in and tried to identify what it meant for FunnelWise.
Listen in as she shares her...

We’re swimming in data. More and more marketing has become data-driven. The challenge is, what do we do with it all?
In this episode Andy Zimmerman, Chief Marketing Officer at Evergage explains that we need to rely more on systems to help with personalization. You don’t want to totally turn over marketing to machines, but you absolutely need to take...
A few years ago, Louis Gudema looked at 351 mid-market companies to see how much they were marketing. The results were shocking.
Software companies were doing great with their marketing, and companies in every other industry were hardly marketing at all. He assumed that everyone knew about things like marketing automation and conversion optimization, but he was wrong.
Louis is the President and Founder of revenue + associates and creator of the Bullseye Marketing Framework. In this...
So much of the trend in marketing these days is toward a more personal approach.
We no longer accept “marketing speak” as readily; we want people who talk to people.
You see user-generated content more in a B2C context, but it’s so powerful (Trip Advisor, Amazon reviews, etc.). On the B2B side, we have tools like G2 Crowd. The reason these are so powerful is because no matter what you’re selling, there is a human on the other side.
In this episode Mallory Blumer, Head of Global...

In this episode Tim Kopp, General Partner at Hyde Park Venture Partners, claims that B2B marketing isn’t always authentic.
If that’s the case, why? And how do we change it?
When Tim joined B2B, he found it to be uninspired. But there are plenty of companies doing it right, or what Tim calls “marketing from the inside, out.” It’s where you get your employees fully engaged in what you’re doing so that they don’t just hear it but they internalize it and play it back out.
If you take all...

When Micha Hershman came on board as Senior Director of Demand Generation and Inbound Marketing at Eventbrite, they were very category-focused, but they weren’t growing at the rate he thought they could.
So they kept the category focus but shifted the business away from a small group of marketers handling multiple verticals at every stage of the buyer’s journey to building out a specialized team. They developed an all-star content marketing team that only does content.
In this episode...
Years ago, Tim Matthews was looking for a great marketing book. He had countless good books on his shelf, but they were all singularly focused, or very academic. There didn’t seem to be a compendium of all the fundamentals of what makes a marketer successful.
So he wrote one.
Tim is Vice President of Marketing at Imperva and author of the book The Professional Marketer. In this episode, he covers marketing planning, measurement in the context of executing a plan and establishing a...
