Riddle of the Week 🧩
I am something you can't see, but you can hear me when I'm near. I come in many shapes and sizes, and I'm essential for discovering what the customer desires. What am I?
The answer is at the end of this newsletter.
Do you ever find yourself mindlessly scrolling through social media only to stumble upon a product that catches your eye? Well, that's no coincidence!
Passive Product Discovery is the New Way!🛷
Nowadays, businesses are strategically sneaking their products into our daily scrolling sessions and making it easier than ever to purchase with just a few clicks.🖱️
With the global market value of social commerce expected to reach $1.3 trillion in 2023, businesses are in a frenzy to grab our attention and drive us toward their products.
This has led to the rise of passive product discovery, where we come across products without even looking for them.
Marketers can use this opportunity to connect with consumers by tailoring content to their current needs and interests. Social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram provide personalized content, so businesses are coming up with innovative strategies to make their products stand out and grab our attention.
According to a.list, by personalizing content and presenting authentic products and experiences, brands can connect with users through social media and drive social commerce growth.
AI will impact 'everything' including 'every product across every company'
Well, well, well. Looks like the robots have finally had enough of being mere mechanical minions and decided to take over the world. And how are they doing it, you ask? Well, through the power of Artificial Intelligence, of course!🤖
Google's CEO, Sundar Pichai, predicts that AI will shake up various professions, including writers, accountants, architects, and software engineers. In fact, ChatGPT, was found capable of passing interviews to become an entry-level software engineer at the company. Recently, Google launched Bard, a chatbot that generates text-based responses to user queries, aiming to enhance productivity, creativity, and curiosity.
It looks like AI is not only taking our jobs but also becoming our colleagues!🤓
