If Paul Revere existed in 2023, his famous catch phrase might have involved less “British” and more “generative AI.” While “generative AI is becoming more ubiquitous!” isn’t as catchy as “the British are coming!” it is accurate.
As AI grows more sophisticated, its use cases expand by the day. Software that businesses use regularly will soon incorporate forms of generative AI that enhance efficacy and productivity.
The widely known (and loved) CRM and growth platform HubSpot has debuted its generative AI-powered assistant ChatSpot to support sales and marketing efforts. ChatSpot uses ChatGPT technology alongside unique data sources, including HubSpot CRM, to help growth teams optimize their time and reach more customers.
Whether you’re a HubSpot user or not, this new development is exciting. ChatSpot demonstrates what’s currently possible with generative AI and gives a glimpse into the future.
Let’s look at ChatSpot’s capabilities, how generative AI widens growth opportunities and what this means for your business.
ChatSpot is a suite of generative AI tools designed to help your sales and marketing teams get more done, faster. It works best alongside the HubSpot CRM, but it’s still handy even if you aren’t a HubSpot client.
Undoubtedly, HubSpot will continue to add new features and functionality to ChatSpot, but it’s already helping growth teams accomplish more now. Here are some of its current functionalities:

Businesses generate massive amounts of data every day, but extracting meaningful insights from this data can be challenging. AI empowers businesses to efficiently analyze vast datasets, identify patterns and make data-driven decisions. With ChatSpot, businesses can analyze customer interactions, identify trends and gain valuable insights into customer preferences and behaviors. This enables companies to tailor their products and services, optimize marketing strategies and improve overall business performance.
Pretty cool, right?
Solutions like ChatSpot are not just for fun – they offer real benefits that business leaders are beginning to recognize. Research indicates that 90% of commercial leaders expect to use generative AI solutions often over the next two years. Further, players that invest in AI are seeing a revenue uplift of 3% to 15% and a sales ROI uplift of 10% to 20%.
To give a clearer picture of ways that generative AI can support revenue growth, consider how it could benefit a business:
If this all seems like a lot to digest, it’s OK. Technology has rapidly changed over the past few years, and it can all feel overwhelming. While generative AI stirs up lots of questions and possibilities, it’s best to think of it as another strategic tool in your tool belt.
The good news is there’s time to build a generative AI game plan to support your business growth. A HubSpot partner can work with your team to identify opportunities for your organization. Start small and roll your AI strategy out in phases, if necessary – it will pay off in the end.
