Describe the project.: 

Traditionally, B2B demand generation to mid-market companies had taken place via attending conferences, emailing, and calling decisions makers. Due to the recent changes in the economy, employees working virtually, and restrictions on live events, there is a need for tech companies to be creative in their marketing and sales efforts via AI-driven social media platforms. The goal of this project is to communicate the existing problems and solutions associated with demand generation to influencers/publications globally.
