The Marketing Book Podcast

Paul Roetzer, Founder and CEO of PR 20/20, joins the content pros podcast to discuss how artificial intelligence is revolutionizing content by utilizing data to efficiently create content, cutting down production time and freeing marketers up to focus on successfully executing strategy.

Content of the Future is Now

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just a narrative tool for the movies. It is rapidly earning a place at the content marketing table. But never fear, it is not here to replace humans in a post-Skynet world of machines.
Paul understands that a properly utilized and integrated AI platform can make your content team faster, stronger, and more connected to your audience.
AI’s ability to quickly capture and leverage all of your data (even that data that has been stranded in a spreadsheet for months) takes a tedious load off your staff and lets them focus on executing strategies instead. By teaching it natural language generation, it can even manage to compose those posts that require very little creativity and are more narrative number crunching or comparisons.
Anchored in a combination of machine learning, deep learning, cognitive computing, and image recognition, AI is far from being able to work independently and with no human direction. Instead of being viewed as an employee replacement, it can be embraced as a marketing enhancement tool that helps your team dump the busy work and focus on high-level strategies and learnings instead.
