When we think of AI, we think of it eliminating annoying tasks such as paperwork or a robot replacing us completely and doing our jobs, but the fact is that AI will soon be part of our everyday lives whether we like it or not.

 

One of the biggest trends in business today is the steady growth of artificial intelligence (AI). When we think of AI, we think of it eliminating annoying tasks such as paperwork or a robot replacing us completely and doing our jobs, but the fact is that AI will soon be part of our everyday lives whether we like it or not.

AI is doing much more than simply providing companies with virtual assistants – it is changing every aspect of business, including marketing. Due to the vast amount of knowledge at our fingertips, digital marketers have a plethora of tools available to them to provide more insight into what consumers are searching for and buying. This correlates directly with the strategy marketers need to take to tailor their services and approach.

With technology changing at lightning speed, let’s delve deeper into future trends:

 

Educated Marketing

Digital marketers use as much data as possible to fine-tune the many ad campaigns they run but it still takes educated guesswork. With the rapid growth of AI, this will allow for more truly data-driven advertisements where data will be integrated deeply into each ad campaign. AI will also seek out patterns that will demystify client choices.

 

Personalized Marketing

With more targeted information becoming available to marketers, AI will allow digital marketers to reach consumers at every stage of the process based on interests and demographics. This will allow marketers to easily segment customers into distinct groups to allow highly targeted campaigns.

From a content point of view, AI will allow websites to be curated for each individual. It will lead to more conversions by offering customers unique shopping experiences.

 

Broader Focus

AI will allow marketers to look at the bigger picture better. Rather than spending company time and resources on sifting through data, marketers can focus on applying what they learn from the data which allows creativity to flow. However, marketers will still need to ensure that the correct data is captured by AI mechanisms.

Artificial intelligence will certainly shake up the marketing world but change does not need to be a bad thing. AI will assist marketers with more personalized campaigns that will reach the right customers which is possibly the biggest gain for any company.
