Artificial intelligence is the gold standard for technology right now. Marketing is just one of the many areas of business heavily influenced by the growth of artificial intelligence. Businesses must be aware of and adjust to the implementation of artificial intelligence in the marketing arena.
These are the main points you need to know.
Marketing is about to become more visual
You already know that visuals are important when it comes to searching for items, from the consumer point of view. Retailers must adapt to this. Artificial intelligence is allowing people to upload images of something they want and products that look like that picture will be returned.
It’s not yet clear what retailers can do to make it more likely that their products are going to be returned in such searches, but it’s something to be aware of. Artificial intelligence is making image search more accurate and you’re going to have no choice but to have lots of visuals for every product in your store.
Automation is getting more prominent – is this the end of human marketers?
One of the big changes brought by artificial intelligence is a new level of automation. Marketing tasks considered to be mechanical are going to be handled entirely by artificial intelligence. You may already know this, but a lot of marketers are asking whether they’re about to become obsolete.
No matter how advanced artificial intelligence becomes it’s never going to replace marketers. Marketers will still be required to control the overall direction of a campaign. Only a human can understand another human’s motives and behaviors.
The coming of artificial intelligence should be considered a benefit, not a drawback, for human marketers.
A better way of giving customers what they want
The heart of artificial intelligence is to consistently give people what they want. Brands need to be consistent in the level of service they offer their target audience. Artificial intelligence is helping marketers to make sure they’re marketing the right products to the right people.
Take collaborative filters as an example of this. They’re an early example of artificial intelligence in the modern marketing arena.
