Imagine, for a moment, that you’re a marketer in the late ’90s. The internet has just started to take off. It’s exciting, it’s terrifying, and you’re not quite sure if you’ll be replaced by a dial-up modem or a dancing baby GIF.
But it’ll definitely be one of those two things.
Fast forward to today, and we’re facing a similar paradigm shift in marketing—only this time, it’s artificial intelligence (AI) that’s causing the existential panic.
The transformative nature of AI in marketing is undeniable. It’s changing the way we create content, the way we target customers, the way we optimize campaigns. But with great power comes great
responsibility uncertainty, and many marketers are left wondering if they’re about to become obsolete—replaced by algorithms with a penchant for cat memes and a knack for writing killer email subject lines.
It’s scary. But when we’re scared, we find it’s helpful to talk about it… then record our conversations and release them on the internet.
Enter Unprompted, the new podcast from Unbounce that dives headfirst into the (thrilling, sometimes spooky, and surprisingly… funny?) world of AI marketing. Hosted by our CMO Pete Housley and brought to you by the real, human people at Unbounce, Unprompted is here to help you make sense of this moment of incredible change.
“Another marketing revolution? I’m getting sick of these things.”
Hey, we hear ya.
As AI continues to evolve at breakneck speed, it’s revolutionizing marketing practices we once took for granted. AI copywriting. AI email campaigns. AI social media.
From data-driven insights and personalized customer experiences to AI-generated content and sophisticated ad targeting, it’s safe to say that the marketing landscape will never be the same.
But along with the immense potential AI marketing tools can offer, they also bring a ton of challenges and concerns. For instance, as AI becomes more adept at creating content, how can we ensure that it remains authentic and true to our brand’s voice? How do we strike the right balance between automation and human touch in our marketing efforts? And as AI-powered algorithms become increasingly sophisticated, how can we ensure that ethical considerations are not left by the wayside?
This stuff keeps us up at night.
So, what’s a marketer to do in the face of such change? Well, we could all huddle in a corner and quietly hum “Kumbaya” as the machines take over, or we could do what we do best—adapt, learn, and grow together.
Navigating the new, AI-powered marketing landscape
The AI marketing revolution is happenin’ alright, and there ain’t no stopping it. The key to navigating these unprecedented times lies in embracing the opportunities AI presents while also acknowledging its potential pitfalls.
But why should you care about one more gosh darn marketing podcast? Seriously, as if we haven’t heard enough marketing acronyms we’re just supposed to know. (Lookin’ at you, ROAS.)
The thing is, this isn’t just another marketing podcast. Unprompted not only provides you with the latest insights, trends, and innovations in AI marketing, but it also tackles the big questions: How do we harness AI’s power ethically? What does the future hold for human marketers? And most importantly, can AI write better jokes than us? (We’re not rulin’ it out, but we’re also not goin’ down without a fight.)
