We’ve been exploring AI in the MECLABS SuperFunnel Research Cohort LiveClasses (https://sherpablog.marketingsherpa.com/website-and-landing-page-design/marketer/). But I’ve mostly been thinking of artificial intelligence in a very practical sense.
So when our latest guest shared the lesson, “use artificial intelligence and your marketing budget to make your customers’ lives more fun and interesting” I was all ears to learn a new perspective on using AI…and really, a unique perspective on how to approach marketing in general.
You can hear the story behind that lesson, and many more lesson-filled stories, from Stacie Grissom, Director of Content & Communications, BARK (https://bark.co/), the maker of BarkBox.
BARK has grown from 2,000 subscribers to over 2 million during Grissom’s tenure, where she was employee number three (now there are over 600). Over the last decade, she has hired 40 writers, comedians, and content creators.
BARK is a public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. In its most recent full-year results, the company earned $507.4 million in revenue, a 34% increase year-over-year.
