AI Marketing Isn't Going Anywhere: Diversify

Unless you're been on vacation in outer Mongolia, you've probably heard at least some mumbling about AI.

Whether you're using tools like ChatGPT, Midjourney, or CastMagic on the daily, or you're curious/hesitant about AI, understand it's here to stay.

Rather than give you a rundown of all the cool ways to use AI to amplify your message, let's talk about what it means for your marketing OVERALL.

Balance, Balance, Balance

If your current marketing strategy involves going 'all-in' on one tactic (social, SEO, email, ads), now is the time to diversify. This doesn't mean you need to stress yourself out doing ALL.THE.THINGS. ... BUT it does mean balancing things out so your marketing is more resilient to the AI storm.

(PS. this is a solid tactic regardless of AI)

Why? Because in addition to the marketing shifts caused by AI, social media has been strange? unsettled? shifting? ... for about a year, and it's not stopping anytime soon.

Here are a few recent social media changes courtesy of Annie-Mai Hodge (X/Twitter or LinkedIn):

What we're watching....

Bing and Perplexity are closing the gap on Google. Oh! And chat search could make it more challenging for small/local businesses to get found on Google.

Our take: until AI becomes more robust, this primarily affects top of the funnel blogs (vague, high-level how-to's) — navigational content — not meaty, transactional/conversion content (e.g., product comparisons, testimonials) or highly-relevant, expertise-driven content.

Bottom Line

Be mindful of where you're spending your marketing time (and resources).

Avoid putting all your eggs in one basket.

Lean on your expertise, or secret sauce and you'll be rewarded for it.


💌 That's a wrap.
