I asked ChatGPT… “Will AI Kill The Advertising Biz?”. Here is the answer:
“It is difficult to predict the future of the advertising industry with certainty, but it is likely that the industry will continue to evolve and adapt to new technologies, including AI tools. AI has the potential to greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of many advertising and marketing tasks, such as targeting and personalized messaging. However, it is also important for the industry to consider the ethical implications of using AI and ensure that its use is transparent and respects the privacy and rights of consumers. Overall, it seems likely that the advertising industry will continue to exist and play a significant role in the economy, but it may look very different in the future as a result of the adoption of AI and other new technologies.”
OK, not feeling so bad.
So then asked about my consultancy…
“Yes, there is a future for advertising agency business development consultants. As the advertising industry continues to evolve and become more competitive, agencies will need expert guidance on how to grow and expand their business. Business development consultants can provide valuable insights and strategies for increasing revenue, attracting new clients, and positioning the agency for success in a crowded market.”
OK, not feeing bad too.
