How to use AI in marketing
Many marketers have been exploring the world of artificial intelligence marketing tactics, and it’s exciting to see that a lot of you are already integrating it with your marketing. At Instapage, we believe that AI empowers marketers to do more, and that’s what we want to dive into today.
If you haven’t used AI to support your marketing efforts yet, some of the benefits related to AI are things such as automating tasks, personalization, creating content, improving targeting and segmentation, and also reducing cost and improving efficiencies.
Let’s dive into the 5 areas of marketing that can be enriched by AI support.
Five areas of marketing that can be enriched by AI
- Content ideation and creation
While AI can’t create content on its own, it can be a valuable tool for helping marketers identify blind spots in their writing and to generate new ideas. One popular AI tool for content creation is Jasper, which allows users to input prompts and receive suggestions for how to expand on them.
However, it’s important to remember that the quality of what you put into AI will determine what you get out of it. Don’t rely on AI to write an entire piece for you; instead, use it to identify key points and perspectives that you might have missed on your own. By combining your own ideas with those generated by AI, you can create content that is more comprehensive and engaging for your audience.
Here are some of our favorite examples (some of which you can see in action in our webinar, How Marketers Should Leverage AI):
- Use AI to help you identify the most important points and ideas in your long-form content, and then adapt them for different organic social platforms, like Twitter or LinkedIn.
- Use AI to help decide headings for your blog posts.
- Use an AI tool like Instapage’s AI Generator to generate additional ideas for headlines and content.
- Use AI to turn a transcript from a podcast into a blog post.
- Personalize customer experiences
Marketers can leverage AI technology to support personalization in several ways. One effective approach is through hyper-personalization, which involves using AI-powered tools to personalize content based on the source of traffic and the specific keywords entered by visitors. This can help marketers tailor their messaging to the unique needs and interests of each individual prospect, increasing engagement and driving conversions.
Additionally, AI can be used to analyze vast amounts of data on customer behavior and preferences, allowing marketers to create more targeted and relevant campaigns.
Overall, AI presents a powerful opportunity for marketers to improve personalization and deliver more effective marketing messages to their target audiences.
- Make data-driven decisions
Laddering up to hyper-personalization, sorting through that data and making key decisions with ease is another benefit that leveraging AI can provide to marketers.
With the increasing amount of data available, it can be challenging to analyze and make sense of it all. AI tools can assist in this process by analyzing vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, providing insights and recommendations that marketers can use to make informed decisions. By using AI to analyze customer behavior, marketers can identify trends and patterns that might have gone unnoticed otherwise.
These insights can then be used to optimize marketing strategies and campaigns, resulting in better overall performance and increased ROI. AI-driven decision-making can also save marketers time and effort, allowing them to focus on other essential tasks, such as creative work and relationship building.
- AI-driven digital marketing
AI technology can be a powerful ally when it comes to organizing and optimizing digital marketing campaigns. Marketers often employ thousands of keywords across ad campaigns, search campaigns, SEO efforts, and more. The management can become very labor intensive, especially for small marketing teams.
With AI-powered keyword tools, marketers can analyze search terms and determine which keywords are driving traffic and conversions. AI can also help marketers identify gaps in their keyword strategies and suggest new keywords to target. By streamlining the keyword research process, AI can help marketers save time and effort while improving the effectiveness of their campaigns.
Additionally, AI can help with campaign organization by analyzing past performance data and suggesting adjustments to ad copywriting, targeting, and other campaign settings to improve overall performance.
- AI for A/B Testing & Optimization
As a marketer, you know that testing is a critical component of optimizing your digital campaigns. However, it can also be one of the most time-consuming tasks, from identifying what to test, to creating new versions of a page, and running the test itself. This is where AI comes in, offering the potential to speed up, scale, and improve each of these tasks.
With AI-powered tools, you can quickly identify what elements of your page to test using analytics, heatmaps, and other tools. These elements could include headlines that catch attention, body text describing value, or CTA buttons that prompt action. With AI’s assistance, you can create test variations faster and more efficiently, breaking through writer’s block and identifying new options for page content. This method can also be used to create A/B/n tests quickly and easily, allowing you to optimize your digital campaigns faster than ever before.
AI is rapidly transforming the marketing industry, and as a marketer, it’s essential to stay ahead of the curve. By leveraging AI tools and strategies, you can improve the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns and drive better results. Remember, the key is to start small, be patient, and stay curious about what AI can do for your business.
