A Book Review: Why Every Marketer in AI Age Should Read “Marketing 5.0”

“Marketing 5.0 Technology for Humanity” is a must-read for every marketer in today’s age of artificial intelligence (AI). Written by Phillip Kotler, Hermawan Kartajaya, and Iwan Setiawan, the marketing book provides an insightful and comprehensive overview of how marketers can use technologies to their advantage.

This marketing book starts off with a discussion of Challenges Marketers Face in a digital world – to serve 5 different generations: baby boomers, Generation X, Generation Y, GenerationZ, and Generation Alpha.

Kicking off their book with the pressing topic of “generation gap”, the authors provide a thought-provoking exploration into just how challenging this can be for marketers. The current market consists of five distinct generations, each with unique needs and experiences from childhood through adulthood.

The authors additionally discuss the potentially exaggerated notions of “inclusivity” and “sustainability for society”, as well as how polarization affects humans both in their personal life, on the job, or within markets.

The authors also describe how the COVID-19 pandemic has been a major ‘accelerator for digitization’ globally. It has inspired a massive shift from traditional to digital methods, allowing companies to go digital faster than ever before. In response, marketers have had to develop new strategies that adapt to digital trends while also considering the needs of their customers.

This book on marketing technology dives into the newest, cutting-edge advancements in our industry such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, internet of things (IoT), and augmented reality. We know, keeping up with these rapidly evolving technologies is essential to staying ahead of the competition.

It’s clear that while machines are undoubtedly cool and provide valuable assistance, humans remain the heart of marketing. As this book has shown us, technology can help marketers to reach their goals more efficiently than ever before. However, it is important for marketers to remember that human connection remains essential in order to build relationships with customers and make sure they have a positive experience when interacting with your brand. Ultimately, “Marketing 5.0” reminds us all that machines are cool but humans are warm.

The third and final part of “Marketing 5.0” is devoted to data-driven marketing, predictive marketing, contextual marketing, augmented marketing and agile marketing.

Data-Driven Marketing: In this chapter, the authors explore how data can be used to drive better outcomes in an automated way. By leveraging customer behavior data and insights from marketing analytics, marketers can make smarter decisions and get a better understanding of their customer needs.

With the help of machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, it is now possible to predict customer behavior with greater accuracy than ever before.

Augmented Marketing: Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are now being used in marketing campaigns to engage customers and create a more immersive experience for them. In this chapter, the authors illustrate how marketers can leverage these technologies to increase engagement and improve customer experience.

Agile Marketing: Agile marketing (read blog post Benefits of Agile Business and Agile Marketing) is based on an iterative and incremental approach that involves frequent testing, prototyping and data-driven decision-making. This chapter demonstrates how marketers can use agile methodologies to keep up with the ever-changing digital landscape.

Ultimately, Marketing 5.0 is an essential resource for those who want to stay ahead of the game in today’s rapidly evolving digital world.
