What is AI Marketing?
Simply put, AI marketing applies something called “machine learning” toward the achievement of marketing goals. Rather than human reasoning, AI marketing leverages customer data and mathematical algorithms to anticipate customers’ needs and enhance the customer experience.
Artificial intelligence offers a way to organize large data sets and make use of it in quicker time. By providing information that allows marketers to plan efficiently and early, AI helps marketers become proactive planners instead of reactors.
Artificial Intelligence can speed up several different areas of marketing and can free up the time of marketers, so you can get more quality time invested in actual strategy instead of tedious tasks.
A few areas AI marketing can contribute to include the following:
As of right now, Google AdWords and Facebook get the majority of companies’ pay-per-click budgets. Marketers utilize AI for PPC because AI discovers new advertising channels and helps optimize the targeting for your ads. This means, by gathering this information, AI will help make sure your ads are getting to the proper people and save you money while providing a high click-through-rate.
Provide Quick Customer Insights
AI creates algorithms that can provide information about customers like:
- psychographic factors
- purchase information
- referral source
- Geo-specific events
Marketers can take this information and use it to create more targeted ads, send customized email newsletters, and essentially optimize all content to be more personalized for customers.
Better User Experience
Artificial intelligence can make a customer’s website experience better. By looking at information like device, location and demographics, AI evaluates all the data and displays the content that will be the most relevant to the user. By doing this, customers are more likely to find what they are searching for and return to the site for more information.
With natural-language automation, AI has the ability to create content for marketers. The copy will have human-like qualities to it because of the rules and data insights AI gathers based on previously written content. Content created by AI allows for customers to find more relevant information on a product/service and frees up time for marketers. This help creating content allows marketers, like the team at Hughes Media, to spend more time strategizing and optimizing campaigns so you can meet your business goals quicker.
For marketers, it is often difficult to have someone constantly available to connect with people sending chats on clients’ websites. AI provides easy personalized chat responses which makes users happy because they get fast responses that are customized to them. Having a chatbot is essential to keep current customers happy and gain new customers.
Through the efficiencies attained by AI, processes speed up and accuracies improve when analyzing tremendous volumes of data. This, in turn, generates stronger results for you, our client. According to Business Insider, only half of marketers are taking advantage of this innovative approach.
It is the hope that in the future, AI will be able to take over most of the time consuming tasks, so marketers have more time to focus solely on you and your goals.
