✦ Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Marketing are not as unlikely bedfellows as you may think. They may just be the best Batman-Robin combination that could make a difference to your business!
Veronica Lind, Business and Marketing Strategist of Vermilion Pinstripes, and CEO of our very Brilliant-Online, has been working in the field of technology since she was 18. For her, technological advancements are not something to be feared, but to be harnessed and used for a better cause. Today she shares some insights into why businesses can consider making friends with AI and get to know it better.
Whether it's AI-driven tools to ace data analysis or craft spot-on content, AI can help businesses to level up their marketing. AI can help you get to know your customers, and even help curate unique experiences they will enjoy. AI can help your message reach the right people at the right timing.
But where do I start?
Businesses can start with trying out ChatGPT, which is a text-based AI developed by OpenAI and Microsoft. You can find a free version 3.5 ChatGPT and a paid version 4 which is faster with more features and advancements for $20/month. Do take note though, that the free version is on a server with information up to 2021.
What is AI in marketing?
AI in marketing refers to the use of artificial intelligence techniques and technologies to enhance different aspects of marketing strategies and activities.
With AI, marketers can analyse large amounts of data, automate tasks, and gain valuable insights to optimise marketing campaigns, improve customer experiences, and achieve better business outcomes.
AI can be applied in various ways:
automate repetitive marketing tasks e.g. data analysis, campaign management, A/B testing, and email marketing
This not only saves time and improves efficiency but also allows marketers to focus on strategic decision-making and unleash their creativity.
By harnessing the power of AI, marketers can gain a deeper understanding of their target audience, make data-driven decisions, and deliver more relevant and impactful marketing messages. AI empowers marketers to stay ahead in a rapidly evolving digital landscape and create meaningful HUMAN connections with their customers.
