The CEO of acquistion.com challenges his team to replace themselves with AI tools. In this video, he should how each department found AI tools to replace or streamline several time consuming tasks. Although AI tools are not perfect yet, it’s clear that they will drastically change the way we work in the near future.
Check out the video below:
Transcript: I told my entire team to replace themselves with AI in a week here's the nine AI tools they came back with across sales marketing HR training recruiting and operations let's start with sales our deal team talks to hundreds of prospective businesses every single month now they've implemented two AI tools to replace themselves first to increase show up rates for meetings we now send personalized videos of me using entirely AI hey Jordan hey Josh HeyKevin Hey Michael Nathan Ryan you passed our initial screen congratulations huzzah so this saved them all the time and missed calls and all the time I would have to spend manually saying heyJohnny hey Dave I never said any names now to do that they asked me to record one video just one the AI would cut in and replace my mouth and move it in the right way to say a name that I never spoke now on top of that the deal team does a lot of emailing so they wanted to have a more effective way to write email follow-ups which normally can take 10 to20 minutes a pop two hours plus per day and so they use compose.ai and so here's an example of what that looks like right after a call in action now if you think about the breakdown of how much they replaced two hours per day on a 40 HourWork Week means 25 percent more output for the same cost that's when for me it's a win for them because value is created next my content team came to me and how they were going to replace themselves they used three different tools to get 250 pieces of content outper week first off they wanted to give everybody in mosination more ways to consume my stuff so they added audio versions of any email or any tweet thatI post that I never actually read these are actually just me tweeting all day no one writes my tweets but me you could actually use the same voice over tool which was resemble AI to send voice memos to prospects create entirely custom text and then send it as a voice member that you can record in real time it's freakishly like me and it was only with about 10 minutes of training 90 of them come while I drink coffee in the morning in between sets when I work out and to give you a quick look into the future podcast at AI actually scraped all of Joe Rogan's podcasts to get his voice down it's entirely possible and this is a clip from the intro of one of their podcasts entirely generated by AI another episode of the Bro joganexperience on this episode I welcome my friend who's difficult to describe how's it going good to see you buddy it's been a long time since I've been on the show so in the future audiobooks may just be recorded entirely through AI because the author's voice can be duplicated and they don't have to spend three days recording the book or every blog post will have an audio version that everyone can listen to and the best part is for me is that the team doesn't have to kind of disrupt my day hey can you record this thing for it'll only take 30seconds that 30 second disruption might take 30 minutes for me to get back on track the second tool that they use to replace themselves is something calledrunway.ai This is for image editing andsome other stuff too but we're using itmostly for images right now so what usedto take 30 minutes to edit out an objector replace my shirt or change the colorof my hat we can now do in seconds onthe flip side you could also edit out anentire figure put whatever backgroundthey want behind it on top of that ifyou've ever needed to remove backgroundsound you ever have one of those you'relike where where was this massive fan inthe background in a few clicks you canremove all of the backgrounds sound ofan audio for any kind of video and theycan do it in seconds the third tool theyused was descript all right this ispretty slick for a couple reasons numberone is for editing it can get straightto the point of a video where I sayspecific things so if you've ever beenlike man I know there's this point inthis video that are recorded that's 38minutes long rather than mindlesslyclicking play and trying to speed it upand trying to pay attention while alsotrying not to doze off instead of allthat it transcribes the entire video andyou can just pick the part where you saythe thing and it goes straight to it sorather than trying to find it throughvideo watching you can find it straightin the text if they don't have to spendtwo hours today looking for differentclips sifting through like pause rewindpause rewind then they can spend therest of that time think about how theywant to package the video what sound orwhat music they want to use to evoke anemotion and that is going to take avideo from a hundred thousand views to amillion views eventually I was gonna beable to do that too though let's switchgears to training one of the mostexpensive things for any new company isthat they have to onboard new peopleafter you've already gone through theprocess of interviewing tons ofcandidates and taking them through firstround second round third roundinterviews now you've given them the jobthey're in they're still useless becausethey don't know how your company Worksthey don't know your values they don'tknow the Cadence they don't know thecommunication structure they don't havemeetings all these things they have torepeat over and over and over again andit's time consuming my director ofpeople came to me and said hey we canactually create all the onboardingvideos using AI thanks for applying withacquisition.com my name is Jessica I aman AI generated member of theacquisition.com team what's cool aboutthis is you can have a living documentthat you update as things change soinstead of going to a studio settingeverything up and then reshooting anentirely new video you just change thetext and boom make sure to click thatlike button the video changes instantlyif it's not perfect I wouldn't worryabout it because it will be soon if youspeed up AI videos I've noticed that itsounds a lot more human make sure toclick that like button all trainings canbe just done straight through text andthen the Avatar can deliver them this ishundreds of hours of human labor that isjust getting eliminated so there are twothings that increase productivity perworker one is education and the otherone is technology when you have ai basededucation you're actually using both theperson who was doing the training is nowusing technology to save the time theperson who's receiving the training isnow becoming educated and as a resultbecoming more productive now let's shiftgears over to recruiting our recruitersrecruit top talent for our portfoliocompanies check out how our recruitersare using Tavis to create morepersonalized Outreach I was talking withAlex ramosi and they said you shouldtotally check out acquisition.com if youonly go through using job boards to getyour talent then you're only gettingpeople who are dissatisfied and want toleave but the highest producing peopleare always employed and so if you wantto have personalized Outreach to get thebest talent consider using stuff likethis then they hop on a candidateinterview after every candid interviewyou take notes on the candidate and thatserves two purposes one is if the personisn't a good fit you send them notesabout why they're not a good fit and youwish them the best on the flip side ifthey are a good fit you want to takethose notes and pass them on to the nextperson so they have more context otterAI solve that by taking notes on theseinterviews and timestamps this saves ourrecruiters 10 to 15 minutes per call perday if you can now get more productiveinterviews then it means you can getmore productive people into yourbusiness and then the savings on thatare probably incalculable now let'sshift to my operations team so our adminfor internal meetings began using AI toattend meetings and take notes on herbehalf now instead of having to sit onmeeting after meeting after meeting totake notes so they could report back tothe executives fireflies AI will takemeetings and they can just look at themeeting notes in probably a tenth of thetime compared to sitting in on each ofthose meetings and then they canconsolidate them they use chat GPT forthat and they can send it to us you cannow have visibility into your entireorganization in a way that you couldn'tever before now let's talk about themost expensive resource in every companytime and the number one time waster oftime those awkward like 30 15 minute 45minute white spaces between meetings andit's not enough time to do any deepworks you just basically sit there andwaste your time waiting for the nextthing to start that doesn't have tohappen anymore so what our Ops team didwas get the entire team under reclaim AIto reshuffle calendars in real time tomaximize output of an entire Company bywait for it 40 rather than havethousands of emails every single daysimply trying to coordinate times it cando that by seeing everyone'stransparently and then making it it sothat there are as few blank spaces aspossible on everyone's calendars and thebiggest project that we're using robotsand AI for at acquisition.com isbuilding our new holdco headquarters wefigure if we use robots we can have themwork around the clock not need to taketime off not have sexual harassmentcomplaints and we have no fear of themgetting injured okay that one was a jokebut in the not too far future it won'tbe
