Very soon, AI will become one of the most powerful, yet underused levers for driving revenue growth from marketing campaigns. Marketing executives who move quickly to adopt AI will win. Those who are slow to adopt marketing AI will lose.

C-Level Leaders Offer Predictions For 2019

Carl explains how he anticipates AI-powered marketing attribution tools gaining traction in 2019. Businesses are still piecing together data points from different platforms. Many are still struggling to understand the full path to purchase. Which marketing channels are driving revenue? What kinds of content help retain customers and at which stage of the customer journey? Where are customers falling out of the funnel?

AI can follow that customer journey and identify when a customer comes to a company’s site and leaves without converting. Businesses that adopt AI-powered attribution tools will have a leg up on the competition this year.
