no not really, that is sales, not marketing.

Still, I don't see anything above a Marketing Assistant type role being able to be fully done by AI in the future.

Marketing is the use of information to promote the sale of a product or service, we will use AI but that will require more of us, not replace us - the use of AI will actually have the opposite effect on the industry
