Senior Account Executive

San Fransisco, CA

Beehive AI creates a mass open dialogue with consumers to help marketers understand customers and increase conversion and sales. Our SaaS artificial intelligence platform interprets conversations at scale in order to uncover customer motivations and needs that can not be uncovered through traditional methods.

The platform knows which open-ended questions to ask customers during their research, purchase, or usage of a product/service in order to foster an ongoing dialogue. Then, using artificial intelligence, it can understand the customer’s motivations, preferences and desires over time. With such insights companies can tailor their marketing, discover new products, drive UX strategy and increase conversion, sales and return on marketing spend.

Current Beehive customers - from Fortune 500 retailers to direct-to-consumer SMBs -
have not only experienced significant increases in consumer engagement, but also have seen increases in conversion of nearly 30%, and up to a 350% increase on their return on ad spend. They have also been able to understand game-changing nuances among their customer segments that would have otherwise been impossible to uncover.
