It wasn't enough that Jay Baer wrote a book, has an amazing blog and does amazing work -- he now had to add podcasting to his arsenal. Break a leg!


I started following Jay on Twitter about a year ago and have really appreciated the great content he has put out. This podcast goes above and beyond though, and really gets to the meat of what is going on in the social and digital media space. Keep up the good work @jaybaer!


This show is so good that I can't stop listening to it. Learn how to use social media and ecommerce to grow your business.


Thank you so much for providing this not only interesting show, but also fun!

Embracing Artificial Intelligence

The subject of artificial intelligence has become nearly impossible to avoid no matter where you look. Whether the discussion is about science, movies, or even marketing, AI seems to be dominating the conversation.
While this may leave many marketers nervous about their place in this new landscape, RJ Talyor of Pattern89 believes that the human marketer will always be an invaluable part of the equation. At Pattern89, they use advanced artificial intelligence to conduct testing far beyond what any human or team of humans could achieve. By analyzing thousands of facets of successful ad campaigns, Pattern89 is able to show businesses ways they can better reach their audiences.
Ultimately, though, it takes a human with real creativity to create real emotional connections with customers. The future is not a terrifying one of machines dominating the workplace, but a step toward harnessing technology to drive creativity and real human connection between businesses and consumers.
