By Sowmya Kannappan

AI in marketing and sales! Is it something that we have already achieved or is it just a hype? Has AI penetrated into the lives of sales and marketing professionals at an in-depth level or do we still have a long way to go? As intriguing as these questions might sound…AI Brains took the theme for its second meetup from these questions! And when we went ahead to make our quest into a candid discussion between GTM professionals from multiple domains and companies…that’s where it all began for us with a cup of coffee! So, what did we talk about in our March meetup and how did we take our quest about GTM teams and AI Tools to the next-level? Let’s dive into this blog and get it figured out! 

The Who, The Where, The Why, and The When? 

It was a fine Saturday morning when our AI Brains team and the GTM professionals gathered in a warmly-lit cabin to discuss AI tools! Oh! It was all perfect! From everyone showing up at the venue with a smile and sharing their side of the story with AI to them dreaming about how it will change the future, we had a spectacular day with discussions that resonated with reality! 

The participants for our event ranged from experienced professionals in GTM domains like sales and partnership, customer success, product management, to sales and marketing heads,etc., And as we nestled in the middle of our cabin to exchange ideas, that’s where our candid conversations began to spread like wildfire and led us into a curious quest of leveraging AI for reaching GTM goals! 

A sneak-peek into the everyday chores of GTM professionals! 

Drafting marketing plans, crafting content, sending emails, writing  follow-up mails, taking calls, analyzing meeting notes, drawing reports, analyzing data and ensuring that customers get exactly what they wanted in the end! While the everyday chores of a GTM professional changes based on the role and the company they work for..the mission’s always about building long-lasting relationships with their clients and delivering the best customer experience for them! 

So, where does AI come in this equation? And how are professionals coping up with the  AI wave that’s growing to sweep off the companies  through AI transformation in the upcoming years? 

When we asked our participants to pitch out their opinions and suggestions on how to embrace the AI wave and  use AI tools smartly…here is what they shared with us! 

Pearls of wisdom shared by our participants! 

1. AI tools have the potential, but will need human intervention.

Given the pace at which technology is advancing everyday and the expanse of data that’s available for us to leverage, AI tools definitely have the potential to change the way we work everyday! From making tedious tasks effortless to repetitive tasks less monotonous, AI tools could open unthinkable creative doors for the GTM professionals! However, if there is one thing we need to be aware of while implementing them, it’s all about how well we define the context! 

Better the context given to the tools, precise will be the responses they will give! It’s important to keep in mind that we still have a long way to go and must never overestimate the capabilities of the AI tools we use!
