2020 has been one roller coaster ride, but nothing could curtail the zest within us as we accepted the challenges 2020 put forward with the innovative ideas and enthusiasm being the only weapons on our side. Eventually, at the end of the year, we can proudly confess that 2020 has become a year of transformations- transformations in the lifestyle, business, marketing, technology, education, and probably in every sector.
As consumers worldwide are adapting to the new normal, their sentiments and behaviors have been impacted variedly. There is a sense of caution among them and also a significant change in how people work, how they shop, and how they entertain themselves. There are varied shopping patterns, including cost-cutting where consumers are primarily focussed on purchasing only the essentials. These consumer attitudes and shopping habits will retain even as 2021 progresses.
Hence, when the consumer behavioral patterns have varied considerably, it is necessary to streamline the Marketing strategies that suitably align with the user’s updated shopping trends.
So let’s dig around on what strategies should be included in our Marketing campaigns of 2021 that influence consumers to respond positively to our products and services.
The primary goal of Marketing is to enhance the brand’s value with enhanced customer experience, and this is done by leveraging AI in the marketing campaigns and boosting the ROI. It is not further that AI will become quintessential for Marketing as 80% of business and tech leaders say AI already boosts productivity according to the reports of Narrative Science. Here is an in-depth overview of how is AI winning the game.

  • Automated Data Collection and Analysis: Research from Callcredit shows that 96% of senior marketers waste an average of 5 hours and 36 minutes every week to improve their data analysis process. This time gets saved considerably by using AI that makes automated decisions based on data collection and data analysis.

  • Analyze Consumer Persona: Consumer persona is a crucial factor, and it is not only determined from the demographic data but also integrates psychographic and behavior metrics. But 76% of marketers fail to use behavioral metrics for online ad targeting according to the reports of Adweek because they are using older technologies to drive customer segmentation and fail to translate the collected data into more customized user experiences. With AI, these data can be collected and well-analyzed to clearly understand the consumer persona and serve them with personalized messages, relevant services, and products.

  • Boost ROI in display advertising: People feel annoyed when they find irrelevant ads popping up during their online activity, and this drops the brand’s ROI. As per PointSource’s reports, when AI is deployed, 49% of consumers are willing to shop more frequently while 34% will spend more money. True to that, we use AI to display the ads to the relevant audience, thereby boosting the ROI.

  • Natural Language Processing: Natural Language Processing(NLP) is another asset of AI that is constantly changing the trends in Marketing. AI can generate short sales copy for you based on your previous winning traits after scrutinizing what words were used and which CTAs performed better. A chatbot is also an application of NLP where it understands the user queries by matching the words with the ones in the database and facilitate a human-like conversation with users.

  • Chatbot Answering Consumer Queries: Customers have questions pondering their minds before making a purchase, and they expect the seller to answer every question of theirs. Limited human resources cannot answer each customer query, and this could be overcome by using a Chatbot. Chatbots lay the initial ground for the conversation, collect user queries, and a human executive can conveniently come up with a solution. Chatbots also inform them about the latest offers, solve simple queries using the FAQs and update them about their orders.

  • AI Retargeting of ads: According to the reports of Marketing Sherpa, around 72% of all online shopping carts are left abandoned. AI is used for retargeting ads to the people who visited your website or landing page but left without bringing a successful conversion. AI can also be used in email marketing to retarget the inbox of people who left the cart abandoned.

So the early adopters of AI in marketing are undoubtedly far ahead of others in the field of marketing.
As per Statista’s reports, 45% of respondents aged below 25 use adblockers, and 42% of people from the age of 26 to 55 also use them. This would deprive the marketers of their primary stream of traffic, including the PPC campaigns. 70%-80% of users ignore sponsored search results as per the reports of Search Engine Land. When your ads fall victim to these, it’s time to switch to alternate potential marketing techniques.
Humanistic Marketing Approach: Your workload is reduced with the introduction of AI, but to bring a realistic H2H approach to your brand and retain the customers you must brainstorm strategies to attract the audience with more humanistic approaches and interactivity, try to drive organic traffic, build a long-lasting relationship with the customers and establish a unique identity.
