Salesforce introduced its latest generative AI product offerings, Marketing GPT and Commerce GPT. With Marketing GPT, marketers will be able to automatically generate personalized emails, smarter audience segments, and marketing journeys. And with Commerce GPT, brands will be able to deliver personalized shopping experiences and customized offers that adapt to their customers’ needs, using GPT-powered dynamic buying journeys.
Significance: Generative AI is accelerating productivity and driving efficiency for businesses. Its potential is clear, with 60% of marketers saying generative AI will transform their role, while 71% reporting they believe it will enable them to focus on more strategic work. However, “accuracy and quality” is marketers’ number one concern, and 63% say trusted customer data is required for generative AI to work.
