Artificial intelligence (AI) isn’t a new concept, but it may seem somewhat unfamiliar to the marketing industry. With new platforms emerging and changing consumer preferences, it is becoming increasingly challenging for marketers to predict which ads will work for each audience. The good news is that AI and AI-powered solutions don’t have to be scary when used correctly. Instead, AI can augment a marketer’s job by automating time-consuming manual processes that will improve creative effectiveness and boost ROI on creative investments.


According to Marketing Week, over 50% of surveyed marketers are finding it more difficult to predict consumer preferences. As digital channels multiply and data privacy laws are updated, you can expect your ability to predict consumer preferences to decrease even more if you’re using vanity metrics of traditional marketing. Although most platforms have the ability to utilize insights to optimize ad placements, they aren’t able to tell you why something is working. Without the why, you’re stuck. 


AI provides marketers with the opportunity to translate an ad’s creative attributes into digestible data points, an option that was never before available within traditional marketing tactics. How? Let’s use the example of a video ad that’s performing badly and you don’t know why. AI can evaluate the ad in seconds to see that there’s a drop-off at the 12-second mark and that at that 12-second mark, there’s a sad puppy. Now, multiply that analysis across all your video assets and AI can show a data-driven insight that sad puppies are hurting your ad performance. Of course, you can manually write down what elements appear at each second mark in each creative and then create a regression model to determine what is causing lower performance and probably deduce that sad puppies are consistent in low-performing videos. But who has time for that? AI can “read” the creative elements in the video, analyze them, and come up with a conclusion faster than your UberEats order – giving you more time to eat that sandwich and work on more productive areas of your role.
