May 2024 Marketing News & Happenings:

Our Take

The trends we're seeing in May 2024 underscore the importance of embracing AI strategically while maintaining a human touch. As AI becomes more prevalent, marketers must focus on creating authentic, purpose-driven content that truly resonates with their audience.

The impending roll-out of Google's SGE is a wake-up call for marketers to prioritize unique, high-quality content that goes beyond what AI can generate. This means investing in rich media, thought leadership, and late-stage content that provides genuine value.

The expansion of ABM and the rise of automation and GTM plays highlight the need for targeted, data-driven campaigns that efficiently drive conversions. Marketers who can effectively leverage these strategies while staying true to their brand purpose will be well-positioned for success.

Ultimately, while keeping up with new technologies and frameworks is crucial, the core of marketing remains unchanged: deeply understanding your customers and solving for their needs. By striking the right balance between innovation and empathy, marketers can navigate the evolving landscape and drive meaningful results.

April 2024 Marketing News & Happenings:

Our Take

The shift in how marketers utilize AI reflects the importance of strategically leveraging new technologies while maintaining a human touch. AI should enhance and support marketing efforts, not replace the need for original, high-quality content.

The trends toward partnerships, UGC, short video, and focused social media strategies all point to brands seeking more authentic connections with their audience. It's about building genuine trust and relationships vs. casting a wide net.

Savvy marketers will adapt to these changes by developing robust first-party data, exploring creative collaborations, encouraging customer content, and selecting the most relevant channels to engage their core customers. An agile approach focused on providing real value will be key to sustainable success.
