In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Paul Roetzer. Paul is the founder and CEO of Marketing AI Institute, and the founder of PR 20/20, HubSpot’s first partner agency. He is the author of The Marketing Performance Blueprint (Wiley, 2014) and The Marketing Agency Blueprint (Wiley, 2012); and the creator of the Marketing AI Conference (MAICON). As a speaker, Roetzer is focused on making AI approachable and actionable for marketers and business leaders. He’s also the co-author of a new book launching in June 2022 — Marketing Artificial Intelligence: AI, Marketing, and the Future of Business.
AI is simply a system that can perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. The idea and purpose behind it are to drive digital transformation, evolve an organization, do smarter marketing, save time and money and produce better outputs.
In this episode, I talk with the founder of Marketing AI Institute, Paul Roetzer, about how AI is changing the game in marketing today and how to utilize AI in your marketing to be more efficient and effective in your organization.
Questions I ask Paul Roetzer:
- [1:40] When somebody asks you, “What is AI?” — what’s the simple answer?

- [4:22] If your job is doing repetitive things, would you say someone in a role like that could be looking at getting replaced in the future?
- [5:18] How will AI impact the marketing profession?

- [10:07] What are the five things that every digital agency should be diving into that are going to give them some of the advantages of using AI?
- [11:54] If you looked at these as efficiency tools alone, that would be a great start, wouldn’t it?
