Open 24 Hours B2B Newsletter- Our Favorite Drink & Content Pairings (Fall Issue)

Open 24 Hours B2B Newsletter: Our Favorite Drink & Content Pairings (Fall Issue)

For many of us, the October and November months are for apples, cinnamon, cardamom, cranberries, and oranges — and how they make their way into uniquely autumnal and uncommonly delectable fruit pies, roasted turkeys, and the like. Granted, bread stuffing and cranberry sauce aren’t for everyone, but surely everyone has a favorite fall drink. One that envelops them like their coziest brown sweater. On that note, we asked some of our team leaders across the company to share their drink favorites in the fall issue of our B2B newsletter, Open 24 Hours. (Make sure you’re on the list to receive our newsletter via email — coming soon. Sign up now so you never miss out on the best in B2B insights.) Here they are  — from a masala chai to a martini — accompanied by some of our favorite content productions of recent months. 

In fact, we’re focusing on some piping-hot Sales enablement content for this issue, so you can finish the year strong. 

Without further ado, welcome to the Content Café!


(Miller’s) Manhattan & All Things ABX

(with Jon Miller, CMO)

“This fall cocktail is for Manhattan lovers who want to try something new and unique — just like ABX is for ABM lovers who want something new.” — Jon 

(21+ only) Obtain 2 ¼ oz rye, 1 oz sweet vermouth, 2 dashes Angostura bitters, less than a tsp Fernet Angelico or Fernet Branca, and 1 tsp your favorite amaro (e.g., Campari, Averna, Gran Classico) Stir all ingredients over ice, then strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a fancy cherry

Jon came to Demandbase 2 years ago by way of Engagio, and before that Marketo, as visionary and founder of both SaaS companies. Today at Demandbase, he fearlessly beckons B2B go-to-market into the next stage of evolution: Account-Based Experience, for revenue teams that care about providing the right experience at the right time to customers across their journey.

newsletter Pumpkin Spice Latte, Ebooks, & Reports

(with Megan Anderson, Customer Success) 

Add frothed milk to 2 shots of espresso. Mix in a dash of pumpkin spice, 1 tsp pumpkin puree, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 2 tsp sugar. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle on some nutmeg

Have you met Megan yet? She’s the one that makes sure our customers feel warm and cared for, like how some folks smile inside when they have their first PSL of the season. 

Megan once said, “In my career, I have tried event planning, public relations, and advertising, but it wasn’t until I started managing accounts and customer relationships that I found my passion.” She’s passionate about customers. Others are passionate about PSLs. It’s all good.

b2b newsletterButterscotch Iced Coffee & DBTV 

(with Jon Leiberman, Content)

Pour a shot of espresso and a cup of milk over ice. Top with whipped cream and drizzle with sugar-free butterscotch syrup. 

This drink is straightforward, much like Jon (known fondly by some as Leib) is a straight shooter. Probably has to do with his journalism background. When he’s not providing the creative direction of new resources like DBTV and DB Central, he might be teaching college students the marketing ropes. But no matter what, you’ll find him sipping on his favored drink: an iced latté. (We think that might be where he gets all his energy.)

Here are some of the Content Team’s latest creations on DBTV. Sit back, dial in, and sip it down.
