AI marketing tools to the fore
Already there are over 50  AI assisted marketing tools like Stackla,  Rocco,  Onespot, Lucy,  Idio, Bloomreach that are increasingly being used by companies big and small to make their marketing  AI oriented.

Then there are tools like Zoho CRM which are so efficient and user-friendly that even non-marketing professionals can use them with ease to engage in basic marketing activity like e-mail marketing. The use of chat apps and bots to engage customers during the sales process has expanded beyond light customer service.  Gartner estimates that by 2020, customers will manage 85% of their relationship with the enterprise without interacting with a human.





Good for SMEs and startups

Vineet Arya of Outsourced CMO is of the opinion that the era of AI is likely to bring cheer to SMEs and startups as it levels the playing field for them vis-a-vis big companies and conglomerates as it has the ability to create good marketing at a fraction of a cost needed today.  Effective use of social media by smaller companies to outsmart bigger and established companies is a pointer to what effective use of technology can achieve.
Before the advent of social media financial, human and geographical resources played a huge role in a company’s ability to reach out and cater to various sections of customers. But with the advent of social media, this started to change and now has created a more level playing field between the big companies and start-ups and SMEs. Startups and SMEs can focus on their clients and prospective clients in much the same way as any big company.

Small is better
In fact, in many cases, they prove the point that small is better. SMEs and start-ups often display a lesser turnaround time than a big company and their ability to react to various situations is more time efficient than a conglomerate thus placing them at a huge advantage on various social media platforms.





Similarly with the passage of time, as the use of AI becomes more prevalent and its costs come down, it can also help smaller companies bridge the marketing divide and the advantage that bigger companies have in terms of resources.

So a smart marketer is likely to not only survive but also thrive in the AI driven future thanks to his creativity, ingenuity and of course the human touch.

ENTREPRENEURS ARE NOT BORN, THEY ARE MADE....

An entrepreneur is an individual who sets up a business, assuming the risk and rewards of the venture. Now the question arises, are entrepreneurs born with business acumen or an individual can hone his skills to become a successful entrepreneur? It is a matter of nature versus nurture. A couple of decades ago we could have easily accepted the fact that entrepreneurs are born looking at the history of success stories of the likes of Dhirubhai Ambani,Ratan Tata and Seth Shiv Narayan Birla to name a few. Back then there was no lack of ideas or funding-rather there was a dearth of driven, capable and obsessional entrepreneurs.
But with the advent of digital revolution, learning and developing certain skill sets is just a click away. Sharp focus on objective and an insatiable desire to succeed can move an entrepreneurial venture to great heights. Truly, a burning desire has devious ways of transmuting itself into its physical equivalent.
The entrepreneur of today works backwards on his visio…
