Good episode? Give it some love!

This is part of an on-going series of interviews with industry leaders about how AI will affect jobs in sales and marketing and what to do about it if it does.

To hear many software companies, AI is part of their offering, has been for some time and saves the end user time, money, and increases sales.  It is a wonder drug which is habit forming.

They say it brings in qualified prospects (sometimes before they know they are prospects), enhances CRM and Marketing Automation systems while making life easier and more productive for all users. The history of AI, however is also littered with massive shifts in labor, and tasks and decisions that are now done by machines. 

Our interview is with LeadGenius CEO Prayag Narula, who says AI is creating jobs not taking them away and most marketing automation programs are stupid in their execution. The host is Jim Obermayer.
