The answer depends on who you ask. Tools like Hubspot, Salesforce, DropBox are common in the digital marketing world. Here is a good list of the most popular tools in marketing.

What AI tools to use?

There are no definite answers to what or which AI tools digital marketers should use. This is because you best know which one your business needs to scale up at any particular time. 

For any marketer or business to stay on top of their game, one must understand there are many options when it comes to using AI software. Here are two excellent categories: 

  • Scheduler – Helps schedule events between multiple platforms.
  • Task Manager – This tool allows users to see how their time has been spent across different projects. 

Which companies are using AI for marketing?

Amazon, Alibaba, Starbuck, and a host of other companies are just a few popular brands that use AI for marketing. Almost all the top brands and businesses are using AI for marketing in one way or the other. See the best 10 examples by Forbes.

How will AI help make better marketing decisions?

AI is quickly becoming one of the most effective tools for making better marketing decisions. 

AI can help us with sector-specific targeting, personalization based on customer interest, and more personalized offers than ever before — all while reducing overall spending. 

Through CRM, many businesses can communicate effectively with their potential clients and customers. 

Several of these functions are easily identifiable in brands like Netflix and Spotify, which use AI to personalized users’ recommendations. 

What’s the best way to use social media AI?

Considering that the market value of AI in social media was worth $815.33 million in 2020, The use of social media AI is becoming more and more popular. Social Media AI is used to help businesses with their social media marketing. 

It can automate tasks like posting, scheduling posts for specific times or dates. This AI will optimize posts based on what the algorithm believes are the most important factors, such as engagement rate, etc. Here are other ways to use social media AI:

What role can artificial intelligence play in digital marketing?

The role of artificial intelligence in digital marketing can be incredibly valuable. AI is becoming more and more sophisticated, improving what many would say are the most tedious parts of our job. From keyword research to competitive analysis, AI generates insights that would be impossible for humans to find on their own.

There are certain roles in digital marketing — like SEO, SEM, and content marketing — that human hands can’t possibly do as quickly or accurately as AI. This is especially true if you consider these technologies as a team, each working off its strengths. Consider these ways:

  • AI speeds up the production of content in various formats and types
  • AI can hyper-personalize the customer experience by analyzing their profiles to cater to individual needs
  • AI has been deployed and effectively improved customer experience through the chatbox
  • AI makes it a snap to A/B test your ads so you can optimize them and see what works best
  • AI is an effective tool for advertisers who want more control over how they market their products or services

And as you’ve noticed, the entire article is centered on how AI can be used in digital marketing.

Is digital marketing going to be automated?

Digital marketing is not going to be fully automated. And yes, some of its tasks could and have become automated with the help of AI tools. However, since change is the only constant and how people interact with brands is evolving at quantum rates, it is hard to tell what the future holds.

Automation is the process of using machines to do things that people would generally do. It is commonly used in industries like production and packaging, reducing the number of workers needed and increasing efficiency. 

Digital marketing AI can be used in marketing strategies and automating tasks such as emailing or social media advertising. This enables marketers to focus on more complex functions like overseeing large marketing campaigns or conducting market research.

Will AI take away marketing jobs?

No, AI will only take over repetitive tasks that are not satisfying to human minds.

The majority of jobs currently done by marketers are not like this and thus will stay in the hands of humans.

Marketing is about coming up with creative ideas for products that people want to buy. It asks questions like “How can we get more customers?” “How can our product stand out amongst the competition?” These insights take deep consideration of the human psyche, which is something that AI cannot mimic.

What’s the future of digital marketing?

It’s hard to say what digital marketing will look like in the future. There are several factors to consider, and there is no clear, discernible pattern that we could reverse engineer. Here’s our best guess:

Here is an interesting article on what the future of digital marketing looks like.

What jobs can AI not replace?

AIs are getting smarter, and people are asking reasonable questions. They want to know whether or not AI will replace or can’t replace their job. Hubspot.com made a list of ten jobs AI can’t replace. Here you have them:

  1. Human Resource Managers
  2. Sales Managers
  3. Marketing Managers
  4. Public Relations Managers
  5. Chief Executives
  6. Event Planners
  7. Writers
  8. Software Developers
  9. Editors
  10. Graphic Designers

AI will always need some degree of human intervention. Even if robots had enough intelligence to replace all but the most complex jobs on their own, society would never allow it. The bottom line is that not only can’t AI take your job away—it probably shouldn’t.

Which jobs will survive artificial intelligence?

We’re still so early in the development of artificial intelligence that it’s hard to say for sure which jobs will survive and which won’t. But we do know what some of the AI can already do, and it could lead to a dramatic shift in the workforce as more and more tasks become automated.

AI is starting to take over many of the tasks that humans have traditionally done, including ones like data entry, translation, and even writing. That means we’ll need fewer people doing those kinds of jobs — and eventually, we may be able to automate entire professions altogether.

Kai-Fu Lee, an AI expert and CEO of Sinovation Ventures and author of “AI Superpowers,” said AI will take over 50% of jobs in the next 15 years. However, humanistic tasks that involve personal, creative, and compassionate tasks will survive.

What are the disadvantages of using AI in Marketing?

Like every good thing, there is always the other side, and AI is not an exception. Here are some of the disadvantages of the use of AI in marketing:

  • AI may not be able to understand the customer’s preferences.
  • AI cannot distinguish between quality products and poorly made products.
  • AI cannot build up trust with customers over time due to a lack of empathy and compassion.
  • AI only has the potential to learn from data from one perspective.
  • Inaccurate data can affect AI in ways so that it does not work properly, processing information incorrectly, or being unable to process certain information at all.
  • Inaccurate data can also lead to operational malfunctions in the machine learning system, which makes it difficult for the agents within a company to work with it because of the increased risk of errors in decision making.

You may want to consider the limitations of AI in marketing to learn more further.

Conclusion

The world of artificial intelligence is evolving. In the past, AI has been used to automate tasks and make humans more efficient. Now it can be leveraged by marketers for various digital marketing purposes, including improving search rankings, creating personalized content, or increasing customer conversions. 

We hope that we’ve provided some insight into the world of AI marketing and what it can do for your business. This list should help you narrow down your search for a marketing tool that meets your needs and budget. Which one would you start with?
