What is artificial intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that develops intelligent agents. These are systems that can reason, learn, and act autonomously. AI has been used in a wide range of applications, including robotics, natural language processing, computer vision, and now, marketing.
But does this mean that AI will replace marketing? The answer is no. AI is a powerful tool that can help companies and brands become more effective, but it cannot replace human creativity, intuition, and the ability to connect with people.
How AI Impacts Digital Marketing
Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the marketing landscape, and digital marketing is no exception. AI can be used to automate tasks, analyze data, and create personalized marketing campaigns. This can help brands to reach their target audience more effectively and generate more leads and sales.
How can AI improve customer data relevance?
For people, it is highly cumbersome and complicated to analyze large amounts of data to identify the interests and needs of your audience. Things like segmenting the audience by age, taste, or income can take a person several hours of hard work.
This is where AI shines, as it can, in a matter of seconds, analyze large amounts of data, organize it according to the parameters you set, and present it in such a way that you can make much more effective use of the data you have on your potential customers. With it, you can design more effective campaigns and create more relevant and attractive content that is more likely to be shared by people and attract potential customers.
What are the types of data that AI can analyze and that can be of relevance to your marketing campaigns?
- Customer behavior: The information found in social networks and websites that customers interact with provides information such as behavioral patterns and consumer trends. When AI analyzes this data, we can tailor the messages, content, and offers we can make to each user. In other words, we could treat each user in a very individualized way, which increases the possibility of converting.
- Campaign performance: When you have an ads campaign running on your product or service, you want to know as soon as possible how effective that campaign has been and if it requires some revisions or adaptations to make it more effective. You can get that information in shorter timeframes through the use of AI. Management indicators such as the open rate or conversion rate are analyzed by AI instantly, meaning you can adjust and optimize your marketing strategy quickly and effectively.
- Market trends: One of the greatest desires of every entrepreneur is to know the market trends to take advantage of opportunities to offer products or services that are trending among consumers. If we know what the potential customer will be looking for before our competitors do, we have already gained some ground. Plus, customers are grateful for the services or products that adapt to their changing needs. AI analyzes these customer preferences, showing the much-valued market trends and allowing you to improve the effectiveness of your campaigns or modify your product according to what the market is starting to demand.
- Purchase data: The previous point of market trends is closely related to purchase data. What the consumer is buying, the prices being driven, the quantities, the locations where these purchases are being made, the personal data of the buyers, etc. All this is analyzed by AI to guide us on our marketing campaign targets and customers. We can even predict how many products we will sell to optimize inventories.
- Customer communication: All companies handle information coming from customers in the form of requests or complaints. This information is essential to know how current customers perceive our product or service and how we can improve it to avoid or minimize future complaints. In this case, AI can evaluate, organize, and present information about customer complaints and requests to make it easier for us to make decisions about our products or target marketing campaigns. Similarly, AI can analyze customer complaints from our competitors and enable us to prevent them.
In short, AI is a powerful tool that, instead of replacing marketing agencies, will empower them to be more effective in their jobs, achieving better results in less time.
