Check out Andrew Allen's thoughts on content marketing

When it comes to how marketing can support sales, Andrew shares:

"The function of marketing is to generate mental availability with future buyers—so the search engine in their brain can recall your product once they're actually in-market. Sales is what happens after that."

He also shares about how to keep your brand fresh over time:

"Figure out what generic corporate brands do, then run in the opposite direction. Talk like a human. Have more fun. Find humor in the relatable truths that your audience experiences."

Andrew explains what marketers can do to tap into the power of AI and become more effective:

"Learn to leverage the 'jagged frontier'. AI is better than you at some things (e.g. analyzing data instantly), and worse than you at other things (e.g. course-correcting a bad brief to solve the right problem). Seek to use AI for all the former, and humans for all the latter."
