It doesn’t feel like generative AI tools like ChatGPT have been part of the public consciousness for that long, but they’re already disrupting plenty of industries, including marketing.
A recent survey of chief marketing officers (CMOs) in North America, Asia, and Europe by Boston Consulting Group has revealed the extent of that change.
Of the CMOs surveyed, 70% reported that their company is already using the tech in its work. Only 3% had no plans to start testing generative AI, showing how ubiquitous it’s becoming in marketing.
The most frequent use case is in personalization, with 67% of the CMOs already taking advantage of generative AI to better personalize products and services.
Unsurprisingly, content creation also ranked high in the survey. According to 49% of the executives, generative AI can help organizations craft content more rapidly and in certain cases, at a higher quality level.
Most tellingly, an overwhelming 93% of the marketing leaders said using generative AI has led to improvements in how they organize their work.
