Marketers always have the same question when it comes to artificial intelligence:
“How do I get started with AI?”
The best way is to experiment with AI-powered marketing tools.
But there are a lot of vendors out there. And a lot of bold claims about what AI can and can’t do.
So taking demos and trials of tools is a must.
We can point you in the right direction.
