Our life has transformed as we transition from an analogue to a digital world. We are connected 24*7 through technology. Apart from connected devices, cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI), our world seems digitized in more ways than one. Our workplace has transmuted due to the impact of digitization. The business planning cycles have shrunk from years to months and now weeks. The workplace has transformed into spending more time with laptops and gadgets rather than people working in the same office.

Business models are being disturbed. Technology like AI, data analytics and cloud computing are changing the way we think and respond to our customers. The response time has drastically reduced and the definition of competition has changed. What is impossible today becomes a reality tomorrow. Our customers and competitors are getting redefined after the revolutionary digitization.

The use of Artificial Intelligence was thought of as a marketing technology that only large businesses could use, but today, even smaller businesses can apply artificial intelligence to help with marketing initiates across the customer life-cycles at reasonable cost. And, while the amount of information on potential consumers grows, computer sciences related to AI (like machine learning and deep learning) will be of utmost importance when making data-based decisions. For example, earlier TV was a very important marketing channel but its benefits were not data centric. However, now after the digital revolution, the data for target audience can be set and at the same time we can measure the number of hits. So, now the success rate, on most occasions, can be measured. Consumer sentiments can be statistically measured and strategies are being formed with flexibilities to incorporate the real-time data analysis. In fact, we at Outsourced CMO strategize the marketing plans for our partners using various data-centric techniques. The approach has significantly increased the target ROI for most of our campaigns.

AI is not only able to generate data but also curate it. The content curation involves assembling, managing and presenting the data collected into meaningful interpretation. This technology is commonly used to make personalized content recommendations that the user may find interesting, such as the typical, ‘people who buy X also buy Y’ like we constantly see on Amazon. In fact, this marketing style definitely affects the consumer choices as people do stop and consider such options put up before them while they are searching for products online. Similarly Netflix’s recommendation system can also give you suggestions for movies and TV shows you might find interesting. And it’s pretty accurate.

Brands are using the power of AI to personalize email marketing campaigns based on preferences and user behaviors. This makes it possible to better connect with them and, with a bit of luck, turn them into clients. Machine learning or automatic learning can analyze millions of data about the consumer to then determine the best time and day of the week to contact the user, the recommended frequency, the content that catches their attention and what email subjects and titles generate more clicks.

Digital advertising is, without a doubt, the area of digital marketing that has today implemented   artificial intelligence. For example, Facebook and Google advertisement platforms are using machine learning and artificial intelligence to find people more prone to making the advertiser’s desired action. To achieve this, they analyze the user’s information, like their interests, demographics, and other aspects to learn and detect the best audience for their brand. The team at Outsourced CMO is one of the most experienced in terms of digital advertising and the use of data generated through artificial intelligence. The priority is always to offer quality consulting by being a part of the existing marketing team or to build up a team that reinforce the signature brand at all touch points with current and future clientele.

This whole digitization and machine orientation is good overall for jobs and the economy. However there’s a real fact that there will be some dislocations, because some of the jobs and roles will be displaced in the future to come and the machine will completely take over most human oriented tasks within an organization. There is a real need for focus on education and re-training to make sure we are preparing the current workforce for the transition that’s coming up.

It should be noted here that humans still hold an advantage over current AI systems in occupations that require social/emotional intelligence, creativity, or high-levels of manual dexterity. At the same time many industries are already seeing the human impact of smart technologies with increased number of layoff due to automation.

It is time to challenge ourselves. Digital technology has been invented to make our life better and more comfortable. It is up to us to use technology effectively. To conclude, economics, government policies and social attitude will play major roles in acceptance and transition to an AI dominated culture.

Why is digital marketing important for Medium and Small Enterprises ?

One of the key differentiators of the success of a business is the number of customers that it can reach as more customers mean more sales volume.   One of the technological innovations that helps a business in this direction is digital marketing . It is indeed a boon for MSMEs as it lets you reach your target audience with ease, simplicity and at very low cost. Cost is always a concern for most MSMEs. Why would anyone not want to use the power of the internet with over 3 billion users to further the cause of their own business? But it is a fact that deploying digital marketing for their own benefit seems a herculean task for many MSMEs as they feel that they are not adept nor attuned for the digital world, they also tend to think that they will not reach their target market or they simply do not have adequate information, lack sufficient human resource and tools to manage the digital world. Here is where organisations like Outsourced CMO can help these MSMEs bridge the


  All entrepreneurs start with an idea and a belief that their vision can have a massive impact. The vision is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by the entrepreneur. The impulse, the desire, is given shape, form and action through the vision and mission statement derived from the imaginative faculty of the mind. Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes. Ideas are the product of imagination. Whoever you are, wherever you may live, whatever occupation you may be engaged in, just remember in the future that any vast empire of wealth and influence grew out of a single idea mixed with the ingredient of a vision. If you are one of those who believe that hard work and honesty, alone, will bring riches, forget this thought! It is not true! Riches, when they come in huge quantities are never the result of hard work alone! Riches come in response to definite demands, based upon the application of definite principles, and not by chance or luck. All ma


The Shared Economy Concept, at its core, is based on the most efficient use of money and resources. In the era of start-ups, gathering the resources is the most challenging aspect of any start-up. The broader vision of the founders of a start-up need to be simplified into micro plans so as to achieve the objective initially set. These micro plans focus on the resource requirements of the start –up. By resource requirement we mean all the tangible and intangible forces which are needed to build up the venture. It includes manpower requirements, space requirements and funding to name a few. Since the funds available to a start-up are usually limited, manpower planning plays a crucial role. An essential ingredient to effective leadership is to manage the resources efficiently. As the funds are limited, resource sharing can play an important role in the success of the venture. The technological advancement across all industries today makes resource sharing a very convenient and appropri
