Amandine Servain AMA: Successful Implementation Strategies for AI in Marketing

Is AI the silver bullet for B2B marketing success? Not quite... but there's a lot of promise, according to Amandine Servain, VP of Marketing at Wunderkind. In a recent AMA, she shared insights on navigating the overwhelming world of marketing technologies while emphasizing the enduring importance of human strategy and creativity. Amandine shared insights on her journey from the fashion industry to B2B marketing and how she's navigating the evolving world of AI-driven marketing strategies. Her experience spans executive roles at companies like Experian, Cheetah Digital, Marigold, and now Wunderkind giving her a unique perspective on the changing face of marketing across different industries. Here are some key takeaways from her proactive approach to evaluation, implementing, and measuring AI tools.


Amandine's transition from the fashion industry to B2B marketing was an unexpected but rewarding journey. She emphasized the importance of understanding the fundamental differences between B2C and B2B marketing processes. "As a consumer, you understand B2C because you consume goods... When you join B2B, you've likely never been exposed to selling to another company."  She also highlighted the rapid technological changes over the past 15 years, particularly the move from on-premise solutions to SaaS platforms, and now the emergence of AI tools. Here are some key insights:

  • Embrace Technological Changes: Stay open to new technologies and platforms as they emerge. The shift from on-premise to SaaS solutions has revolutionized marketing, and AI is poised to do the same.
  • Understand B2B Nuances: Recognize that B2B marketing requires a different approach than B2C. Focus on understanding the unique sales and marketing processes in the B2B world.
  • Continuous Learning: The marketing landscape is constantly evolving. Stay curious and be willing to adapt your skills and knowledge to keep pace with industry changes.
  • Bridge the Education Gap: Amandine noted that formal education often lags behind industry needs, especially in B2B marketing. Seek out opportunities for ongoing professional development to stay current.


As AI tools become more prevalent in marketing, Amandine shared insights on how her team at Wunderkind has been adopting and integrating these technologies. She emphasized the importance of identifying specific pain points before investing in AI solutions and ensuring seamless integration with existing technology stacks. "I looked at first what are the challenges that we have, not like going after let's find an AI tool without understanding what that AI tool do," Amandine explained. Here's some advice on effectively incorporating AI into your marketing strategy:

  • Start with Pain Points: Identify specific challenges in your marketing processes before seeking AI solutions. This ensures that any new tool addresses a real need.
  • Ensure Integration: Look for AI tools that can integrate seamlessly with your existing technology stack. This prevents the creation of data silos and improves overall efficiency.
  • Do POCs or Pilots: Before fully committing to an AI tool, run pilot programs to test its effectiveness and gather team feedback. This approach allows for informed decision-making.
  • Human Oversight: While AI can enhance efficiency, maintain human oversight, especially in areas like creative content creation. AI should complement, not replace, human creativity and strategic thinking.
    Measure Impact: Track improvements in engagement metrics and conduct A/B testing to measure the impact of AI tools on your marketing efforts.


Amandine stressed the importance of collaboration between marketing and sales teams, highlighting the effectiveness of a "pod" structure where representatives from each team work together closely. This approach fosters better alignment and more effective campaigns. She also shared insights on staying informed about new technologies and marketing trends:

  • Cross-functional Collaboration: Implement structures that encourage close collaboration between marketing and sales teams. This alignment ensures more effective and cohesive campaigns.
  • Diverse Information Sources: Subscribe to venture capital newsletters for investment insights, which can provide early indications of emerging marketing technologies.
  • Regular Team Feedback: Conduct quarterly surveys to identify pain points and potential solutions within your team. This bottom-up approach can uncover valuable insights and tool recommendations.

Amandine's approach to marketing at Wunderkind offers practical lessons for marketers adapting to AI technologies. Her experience provides a roadmap for effectively integrating AI into marketing strategies while maintaining a focus on core business objectives. To replicate her success, start by mapping your team's pain points and matching them with targeted AI solutions. Cultivate a culture of experimentation, running pilot programs to test new technologies before full implementation. Foster cross-functional "pods" that blend marketing and sales expertise, ensuring AI integrations serve both teams effectively. While embracing AI's potential, double down on uniquely human skills - craft compelling narratives, devise innovative strategies, and build genuine relationships. Remember, AI is a powerful tool, but it's the marketers who wield it creatively that will ultimately reshape the industry.
