4 Challenges Faced by Businesses That Do Not Adopt AI in Their Commercial Processes

By: Gabriela Jaimes Galindo

Can you imagine a future where your competitors are selling twice as much as you, effortlessly retaining their customers, and dominating the market with unimaginable strategies?

Daunting, right? Well, that future is not as far off as you might think and could become your reality if you continue to refuse to benefit from Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI has moved beyond science fiction to play a crucial role in the business outcomes of today’s commercial environment, especially in sales and marketing.

What could happen to your business if you keep resisting the change we’re experiencing?

1. It gets stuck in the past. Just as some businesses once refused to use computers, companies that don’t adopt AI are relegated to traditional methods that no longer work, particularly in the digital world. Their sales and marketing strategies become obsolete, unable to compete with the agility, personalization, and efficiency offered by AI.

2. It loses customers in droves. Today’s customers are demanding and expect personalized, relevant experiences. If your company can’t provide this, your customers will go to competitors who can. AI allows you to deeply understand your customers, anticipate their needs, and offer unique experiences that build loyalty.

3. It fails to leverage data, doesn’t store it, or worse, has it and does nothing with it. Companies collect vast amounts of data, but many don’t know how to use it effectively. AI helps you analyze this data, identify patterns, and gain valuable insights that enable you to make strategic decisions to boost your sales and marketing.

4. It becomes a dinosaur. In a world that’s changing rapidly, standing still means falling behind. AI is the driving force behind innovation in sales and marketing. If you don’t adopt it, your company will become obsolete, missing the opportunity to grow and thrive.

I don’t want that to happen to me. Where do I start?

A good practice is to start individually. If you’re a leader, manager, or owner, you can begin by using assistants like ChatGPT or Gemini, getting familiar with them in the most basic way. We also advise learning about prompts, and once you feel ready (which we suggest should be soon), you can start disseminating the information. AI can be jarring, so it’s effective to begin from leadership positions.

From there, follow a basic action plan:

1. Set Objectives: What do you want to achieve with AI? Increase sales? Improve customer service? Personalize marketing experiences? Clear objectives will help you choose the right tools and strategies.

2. Start with small projects: Don’t try to tackle everything at once. Start with a pilot project in a specific area, such as customer service or lead generation. This will allow you to learn about AI and see how it can benefit your business. Biky Montes can be very helpful for a sales pilot, and we invite you to get to know her.

3. Choose the right tools: There are many AI tools available, each with its own features and benefits. Research and choose the tools that best fit your needs and budget. We recommend selecting tools with competitive pricing that can cover multiple functions.

4. Train your team: AI is not a magic wand. To harness its full potential, your team needs to understand how it works and how to use it effectively.

5. Measure and analyze your results: It’s important to track the progress of your AI projects and analyze the results. This will help you identify what works and what doesn’t, and make the necessary adjustments. It will also help you understand why you need AI and how you can benefit from it.

And in case there’s any doubt, a Gartner study found that AI can automate up to 45% of sales and marketing tasks by 2022. Do you know how much money you can increase with the time this saves you?
