In each episode, founders, marketers, and salespeople across industries discuss a wide variety of demand gen topics. One thing that sets this show apart is they focus on one specific metric and how that's had a meaningful impact on business.

Organized by Demand Gen Report, which is a publication for B2B marketing folks, the B2B Marketing Exchange hosts both an annual event (including the Killer Content Awards) and a podcast.

Billed as a show for those who "live and breathe B2B," the weekly episodes feature some of the industry's top talent talking about demand gen, among other topics.

One week, you might learn how to apply CIA secrets to your sales process. The next, you're hearing about how content creation is similar to a cocktail party. As you can see, B2B Marketing Exchange likes to keep things interesting!

Creative Pep Talk

We're gonna zoom out and get a bit macro here. Creative Pep Talk isn't exactly a podcast specifically for demand generation marketers, or even B2B marketers.

So, why is it on our list?

Well, as marketers, being creative is just woven into the fabric of what we do. Sometimes it's easy to forget about that piece and focus solely on metrics, KPIs, and the like. But we have to nourish our creative wells in order to keep moving forward and generating new, awesome ideas!

That's where a Creative Pep Talk can help. We love the whimsical, colorful branding, and the motivational feel behind each episode. When you need someone in your corner reminding you not to give up, tune in for a listen.

Business Made Simple

Donald Miller has made a name for himself in the marketing world as the CEO of StoryBrand and an avid proponent of why building your own brand story is important. In his podcast, which is relatively new on the scene, he distills core principles of marketing and business into bite-sized episodes.

Listening to Business Made Simple is like getting a free, quick coaching session with Miller himself, as he discusses why salespeople need to stop selling (yes, you read that right) and how product bundles and upsells can help you sell more over time.

What are the benefits of staying in the loop with new demand gen content?

The field of marketing is rapidly evolving, and staying current on the latest trends, strategies, and technologies is critical for demand generation marketers.
