Batter Up! It’s Time for Your Team to Have Spring Training

Coming out of the winter and gearing up for spring can be a little difficult for the first few weeks. Returning staff and rusty stuff, along with new employees and new tools are in need of sharpening, and John Kennedy is prepared to help get your IGC and your team ready to “play ball” for the new season.

Just like in baseball, you should get  "back to basics" and slowly increase their speed and skillset. John will provide you with the top three elements of a successful spring season—Education, Engagement, and Enthusiasm.  You will want to hit the ground running in 2024 and this Proven Winners webinar will set you and your team up for success in 2024.

AI for IGCs: Use Cases for Business Growth and Traps to Avoid

Get a refresher on where generative AI tools stand in early 2024 and learn how to use these tools (or not use the tools) to streamline marketing and communications activities. We'll take a look at integrated tools in popular marketing programs like Shopify and Klaviyo, and explore use cases for LLMs (large language models) like ChatGPT. We'll send you a draft AI policy and resources for training your staff. Finally, we'll spend a few minutes discussing what AI means for traditional marketing and the human touch, and how to stand out in a sea of bots.
