You’re thinking it, we’re thinking it, and we figured it’s time to address the elephant in the room…
Is AI going to take our marketing jobs?
And the answer is — it depends.
According to a Statista survey back in March of this year, more than 80% of marketing industry experts were already integrating some form of AI technology into their online marketing activities. In another survey from Influencer Marketing Hub, 71.2% believe AI can outperform humans at their jobs.
At the same time, AI adoption might not be happening as quickly as we all think it is.
Towards the end of last year, IBM revealed that limited AI skills, too much data complexity, and integration challenges are still holding plenty of companies back from fully embracing AI.
To help you get a grasp on where marketers stand in this new, fast-paced world of artificial intelligence (and give you a leg up on the “robot army”), we’ve invited two industry experts to share how they expect AI to impact marketing plus practical ways you can use AI to your advantage.
