Are you ready to use AI in your marketing strategy?

AI can be a super helpful tool for marketers, but it's important to be mindful of how we use it and to be aware of any potential downsides too.

On the bright side, it is highly effective and can reduce costs. AI algorithms can analyze large amounts of data quickly and identify patterns that can help marketers make better decisions and save time. By automating certain tasks, AI can also reduce labor costs.

In advertising, AI is used to analyze consumer data and find the best type of ad for a given audience, generate personalized messages and even create digital art and design. For SEO purposes, AI can be very useful in generating keywords, meta tags, and high-quality content.

Looking for some interesting interaction with your audience? Chatbots are very popular AI powered tools that stimulate conversation with users and increase engagement.

H&M created a chatbot called Lars that could assist customers with their purchases by answering questions, providing assistance and recommendations, which resulted in an increase in sales.  

Another example is Netflix, they use AI to personalize and optimize the content they show to their users according to their viewing habits and preferences.

But it’s not all digital rainbows and roses. Some marketing campaigns using AI also went wrong, proving how important it is that they are properly designed and monitored.  In 2016, Microsoft's chatbot, Tay was released on Twitter to learn from interactions with humans. Within 24 hours of its release, Tay began making racist, sexist, and other offensive remarks. This incident demonstrated the potential for AI to perpetuate and even amplify biases that exist in human society.

We shouldn’t leave it to AI and turn our heads the other way. As a new tool, there’s still a lot to learn and explore and so it requires our care and attention. Here are a few challenges to consider:

  • Complexity: Implementing AI can be complex and requires a certain level of technical expertise.
  • Data quality: AI algorithms rely on high-quality data to make accurate predictions. If the data is incomplete or inaccurate, the results will be as well.
  • Lack of creativity: While AI can help with data analysis and personalization, it can't replace the human touch when it comes to coming up with new and creative ideas.
  • Lack of diversity: AI algorithms are only as diverse as the data sets they are trained on, which can lead to a lack of diversity in the output and could perpetuate existing biases and stereotypes.
