When it comes to approaching market  research, Carmen shares:

"I’m a big fan of market research as an input. We’re all awash in behavioral data from our analytics tools, but market and customer research can really unlock attitudinal insights that can help us tap into the emotional aspects of customers buying process. There are many ways to do research from the very costly and thorough to the fast and easy. My advice would be to just get some attitudinal insights about your customers and prospects even if it’s not the most thorough because it will help you understand them better and drive a better result."

He also explains what marketers can do in order to tap into the power of AI and become more effective:

"Experiment! It’s a new space for all of us and I think we’re all learning as we go with GenAI right now. As a leader, I think the most important thing I can be doing is encouraging people to embrace it rather than fear it. That’s led to my team coming up with some really interesting use cases like exploring email creation tools, using GenAI to help draft briefs, and exploring how it might help with image creation."
