Unless you were abducted by aliens, you’ve seen the tweets, LinkedIn posts, and other coverage by the media, thought leaders, and demand generation experts about the new Demand Unit Waterfall introduced by Sirius Decisions at their annual conference in Las Vegas on May 16 – 19th 2017.
The initial feedback to the unveiling has been mixed with both excitement and skepticism. David invites Terry Flaherty and Kerry Cunningham, two of the Research Directors @siriusdecisions behind the new framework to answer questions around its’ purpose and implications including:
- What has the reaction been to the new waterfall?
- Why did SiriusDecisions update the demand waterfall?
- What's a Demand Unit and why does it matter?
- What's a Demand Map and what value does it deliver?
- What are the major changes/differences that Sirius introduced in this version of the waterfall?

Join DemandGen Radio host David Lewis and his guest Randy Frisch, Co-Founder of Uberflip, as they discuss Uberflip’s innovative platform for content marketing that dramatically improves conversion. This platform also enhances the experience for prospects by mimicking the NetFlix® content model so visitors end up “binge watching” (your) content. How cool is that?
If you’re like most demand generation marketers, you’re trying to convert website visitors into leads by publishing various pieces of content scattered about your website. You hope to aggregating them in a resources area so visitors select and download your “lead bait” one at a time. This traditional method of content publishing has certainly been effective for generating leads, but the team at Uberflip reimagined what the experience should be like – just as Uber® reimagined the transportation business.

It was only a few years ago that the need to become “a content marketer” showed up as a priority for demand generation teams. While that priority hasn’t gone away, marketers now face the additional challenge of “creating more engaging content” to rise above all the content noise.
There is no better way to do that than by adding video to your marketing mix. What was once a very expensive and time consuming media is now inexpensive and easy. We’ve entered the “Vigital” age for interacting with prospects and buyers. In this episode of DemandGen Radio, David talks with Tyler Lessard, CMO of Vidyard about how to get started in video creation and the benefits of using a platform like Vidyard for creating, publishing, personalizing, and tracking the impact of your video content.
