Of course, human skill and intelligence is required to set up the campaign, after which the AI takes over and keeps optimising the campaign by interpreting campaign reports and analytics in real time.
Content Creation & Curation
Content Marketing is at the heart of Digital Marketing, which is why continuously creating, promoting and optimising content across different properties like websites, micro sites, blogs, social media, videos, infographics and audio is the core function of a digital marketer. Fresh and unique content plays an important role in optimising search results for keywords and key phrases which define the brand’s premise and enable it to gainfully connect and engage prospective customers for the brand’s products and services. AI possesses the capability to instantly curate and generate content as per the data fed into the system. What’s more, it can also determine in real time, the right users for the content and the best channels for its precise delivery. AI is also used for generating topics for blog articles and even writing the first drafts based on the input of keywords, desired content flow and other parameters.
AI-powered Digital Advertising
Gone are the days when digital marketers had to manually work on setting up, running and optimising digital advertising campaigns. In today’s age, AI powers Programmatic Advertising, which dynamically interprets and utilises multiple complex algorithms along with humongous demographic, psychographic, geographic and interest targeted data for delivering the digital ads to the respective audience clusters, thus eliminating wastage and optimising the campaign on the parameters of reach, engagement, response and cost, while eliminating ad avoidance to a great extent.
Automated Customer Service
AI powered Chatbots are the biggest game changers in the customer engagement sector. All the possible frequently asked questions are fed into the system, which uses AI to match the answer to the respective question. In addition to this, AI also uses NLP, or Natural Language Processing, to answer other questions outside the purview of FAQS, almost like a human customer service executive. Websites are increasingly deploying Chatbots to profitably engage website visitors by talking them through to the purchase path. What’s more, Chatbots do not any temperament, which is why they are always polite and courteous, attributes which sometimes do lack in their human counterparts.
