Technology has advanced rapidly over the years. It has made a huge impact on the global economy. There has been a major shift from offline channels to the digital platforms, giving the consumers an omnichannel experience. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the intelligence displayed by machines, which is equal or better than that of humans, and is being used rampantly in various technologies. According to a survey 51% of marketers are already using AI and by end of 2019, 27% more are planning to incorporate it. The reason is that initially marketers hesitated to use AI as they found it ambiguous, but recently after seeing the success rate, they thought of incorporating it in digital marketing. Now it has improved marketing strategies and boosted many businesses. AI keeps evolving and is essential for any digital products these days.
AI technology is an asset and it has made lives easier for marketers, as it automates work, enhances the performance and reduces errors. It is designed to understand the preferences, needs and purchasing pattern of the customers, in order to serve them better and help them make the right purchasing decision. This personalized interaction enhances the customer experience.
Let us look at how digital marketers use AI:

AI tools are an asset to marketers as it aids them not only in email campaigns but also the web, as they are constantly evolving, learning, improving and analyzing. The integration of AI helps the marketer in improving the customer experience, by optimizing ad campaigns and push notifications. It predicts the market trends too.

AI technology also boosts SEO’s, as it aids the marketers to analyze customer data and create predictive strategies.

Digital Marketers these days are improving user experience by using AI powered live chatbots. They have certain features like: they respond and solve issues instantly; they have human like conversations that are highly interactive as well as courteous to their customers, they are available 24×7, and can handle multiple requests and queries simultaneously keeping in mind the customers details, so they don’t have to repeat themselves. To assist the customer in a better way, marketers use these chatbots in websites, apps, text messages and emails. Such factors make the customer journey simple and delightful.
4. Optimizing Text and Voice Search
With the advancement of AI, most of the digital products have transitioned from text to voice. Digital marketers are optimizing websites for voice search, and simultaneously keeping the text-based search too. They are also incorporating voice search queries that can answer directly to the searcher by directing them to web pages that give them direct answers to questions or probable questions. Marketers use this technology to also create local landing pages based on various locations to target the customer.
