05.17.23 -- The Good, Bad and Ugly of ChatGPT

  In This Issue:  



Late last year while we were distracted by rising inflation and an imminent recession, ChatGPT was released by OpenAI. It showed up like Uncle Harry at your holiday party, the one that does all the cool magic tricks. The youngsters love him, but the adults feel threatened.


What exactly is ChatGPT? It depends on who you ask, but it will certainly impact B2B content marketing and will remain one of the most talked-about additions to our digital landscape for a while. And it can even join the conversation.


Where will it fit into our current suite of marketing and sales technology, if it fits at all?


This edition of our newsletter features an excellent article contributed by Adam Smartschan of Altitude Marketing that explains what ChatGPT is, its strength and limitations, and how it can help B2B content marketing operations.


And there’s more too: adding purpose to your martech purchasing decisions, defragging your martech stack and getting your technology to support business outcomes.

4 Ways ChatGPT Is Changing B2B Content Marketing

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of ChatGPT. Beyond the hype and sensationalism, there is reality. ChatGPT is ultimately a content tool, it’s a robot writer and it has the potential to change B2B content marketing as we know it.

Are You Managing Your Technology Or Is Your Technology Managing You?

In the early stages of our buyer’s journey for technology solutions, we’re learning about the problems it can solve, and we begin forming our expectations around our own problems. But it is easy to lose track of our initial outcomes on the way to making a buying decision.

Are Your Marketing And Sales Adrift Because Of Your Technology?

The Hudson River flows from the Adirondacks southward to New York Harbor. In some places it is peaceful and picturesque, in others, busy with large commercial ships, high winds, and changing tides. If you’re navigating the river in a small boat, it’s important to pay attention to your surroundings and keep an eye on your destination. A boat that is adrift poses a great danger to itself and its occupants. 

Is It Time To Defrag Your MarTech Stack?

At any point on a typical day, at least a dozen applications are open my computer. Adopting each one came only after careful consideration, but each was primarily evaluated on its own merits and its ability to integrate with other applications received less attention. Over time it became fragmented and my MarTech stack looked more like a Jenga tower on the verge of collapse. If your experience is similar, it might be time to defragment your suite of marketing technology tools.
