The Future of B2B Marketing & Sales: Can AI Really Foster Human Connections?
Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) really foster human connections within marketing and sales? When done right, yes it can. AI can help brands accurately understand their customers and determine what experience to deliver based on the traits it considers most predictive. AI can truly see customers for what they need in that very moment and direct you in evaluating and deploying the correct solution, within the precise channel, and the right personalized touchpoint—all in real-time and all at scale. What is that if not more human than even the best of the best human marketers?
The biggest challenge is how to assimilate these humanized AI experiences into your marketing strategy? The answer is of course data. Ultimately, without a strong, data-driven foundation in place, AI will simply develop into another blockade in the path of meaningful engagement, automating and advancing bad customer experiences.
