Are you interested to start a career in Web3 marketing?
Back in 2021, I watched a bunch of YouTube videos on how to start a career in Web3 marketing. However, because I was too occupied on my digital marketing projects, I had to put it aside. It didn’t make sense to start a career in Web3 marketing when I was doing well with Web2. But that didn’t last long.
Being in this competitive digital marketing industry, not pivoting or expanding skills and knowledge meant putting your career at risk! People on the internet started talking about insane NFT sales, smart contracts, and blockchain. There was just no way to avoid it! Simply put, if people are talking about Web3 like Metaverse, NFT, crypto, and so on, why not turn it into an opportunity?
Suddenly, working as a project manager for digital marketing agency posed a threat to becoming a digital dinosaur. There were no plans to transition into Web3 marketing and the volatile conditions of the cryptocurrencies didn’t help in the early adaption. However, with endorsements from tech giants like Elon Musk and Hollywood celebrities, the blockchain’s sub-sector, like NFTs, Crypto, Metaverse, and DeFi, skyrocketed in popularity. One example was how the popularity of NFTs took over the internet. What was once just a jpeg digital art became the latest shiny object!
By the time I took Web3 marketing seriously, it had gone through a series of controversies ranging from volatile cryptocurrencies to a bunch of rug pulls. Despite its uncertain future, giant brands like cosmetics, events, fashion, and F&D, to name a few, continued to incorporate Web3 into their marketing strategy.
How I started my career in Web3 marketing
Ultimately, by the first quarter of 2022, I dove head-first into the complex world of Web3! My project management skills were tested when I became Head of Delivery for a Web3 startup. From a few members, we grew to almost 40 after only a few months of operation, but more about that in my upcoming blogs! The real challenge came when we had to organize ourselves fast. And boy, I cried buckets of tears – it was that hard! We fulfilling our commitments to partner brands while continuously building the app’s MVPs.
To my surprise, after seven months into my HD role, I was offered to be the OIC of the marketing group. So, from simply managing scrums and workflows, I was in charge of a team. We became a team of 7, but changes kept coming week after week.
Where my career in Web3 marketing is going
Currently, I’m learning more about ChatGPT and other AI marketing and creative tools to supplement our workload! And it’s overwhelming! Web3 and AI are so new, at least for me, yet so powerful that it has been spreading like wildfire online. Before starting this blog, I swore to stick to Web3 marketing, but with AI currently dominating the scene, it’s impossible not to discuss it and tell you my game plan for using it at my job.
So, here’s how to start a Web3 marketing career with AI
With AI, my Web3-related research and other processes are cut in half
I’m already cutting my Web3 workload in half by speeding up my research time. So, here’s a little controversy surrounding the use of AI for research. ChatGPT’s database of information was from 2021, and some information could be more accurate. I wouldn’t consult ChatGPT for anything Science, Medical, and maybe History related, as it tends to deliver inaccurate results or anything beyond 2021, at least for now. I would still rely on Google Search from reputable sites.
My ideation and brainstorming-sessions will be generated with AI but the actual content will still be me, the brand!
What creative block? You’ll never get the creative or creator block when writing content for web3 with AI. Open ChatGPT, ask a question, get ideas, prompt, or query for more details, and you’ll have hundreds if not thousands of ideas flowing in if the system isn’t down. Typically, ChatGPT is down during North America’s daytime! The system freezes during these hours. And if ever you are tempted to use AI to write blogs for you, think twice! It won’t take long until Google releases a new algorithm penalizing AI-generated content. So, sure! Perplexity and burstiness will still be very high in my blog because there’s no way I’m using AI to write my content without research and a ton of paraphrasing.
There’s always something to talk about in the Web3 community with AI as your wingman
To grow and thrive as a web3 marketer learning more about community marketing is just one of the ways to go! Despite the convenience of having AI-like chatbots, most humans (I hope!) prefer to talk to real people because why wouldn’t they? The only difference now is you will always have things to say because there’s always a topic to generate using AI. Copy and paste whatever you want for as long as you remain in the conversation leading the community into something eye-opening or engaging!
AI will support my Web3 Marketing work and not overtake it! (for now)
With AI dominating 2023 and beyond, the content will be increasingly overwhelming, for sure! People will find it harder to distinguish fake content, AI-generated content, from accurate and trustworthy content. And just last night, I saw a job ad for an AI-assisted blog writer! So, that’s working with AI as your tool to actually finish a ton of your work. All you have to ensure is that you know the principles and what you’re doing in using AI as your tool to aid your work. I’ve already started researching how to become an AI manager for Web3 marketing, and so far, I have yet to find anything. Becoming an AI manager or knowing how to manage AI will involve research to fact-check and manage AI-produced content and materials. I see myself investing time in learning more about managing AI, allowing it to support my work and not overtake it.
AI is here and it’s now mainstream!
Finally, I will make Web3 and AI easier to understand for Filipinos, guiding them as they navigate their way through this insane and overwhelming technology! Creating content around it to show it should be done the right way without replacing the actual “thinking process.” So, yes, I will be back to being in front of my good old Canon M50, trying to influence people to think far ahead for their future and their kid’s future because AI is here, and its now mainstream!
