[2:10] How has AI changed the landscape of marketing? Is it as revolutionary as it seems?

[3:30] We’re going to talk about the most popular tool, Chat GPT. Can you explain what it is and how to access it and use it?

[7:20] How can a small craft business benefit from incorporating AI and ChatGPT into their marketing strategies?

[8:55] What challenges do businesses face when using AI and ChatGPT? What other limitations are you seeing?

[10:30] Can you share some examples of how you’ve successfully leveraged AI within your agency.

[12:14] I often hear that legal is an area where AI can be really effective. Have you had any experience with that realm?

[14:30] Like I just mentioned, I know that many listeners will think they can just replace their social media efforts with a little AI, but there are a lot of cautions to that approach. We’ve found for example that ChatGPT is about as confident as a 9th grader, but really wrong about a lot of things. Confident but wrong isn’t what we’re after at Stitchcraft. What are your thoughts on that. 

[17:16] Let’s get philosophical. What role does human creativity play in a world where AI and ChatGPT are everywhere? 

[22:30] How do you make sure you’re not crossing any ethical boundaries with AI? I’ve often felt bad using Midjourney for example because I know it draws on the creative work of artists but they get no payment or credit. Can you speak to that?

[24:10] Time to pull out your crystal ball. How do you see the future of AI in marketing evolving?

[28:35] Have you seen anything on the e-commerce side with AI?

[28:59] What are some of the tools you’ve been using most successfully in marketing?
