Recently I was asked, “as an agency, how are you using ai within your marketing?” and honestly, the question gave me pause. I know we are using ai, but could not answer exactly how. Since it was (and is) a really valid question, I wanted to have a really good answer the next time someone asks.

While ai, by definition, seems quite simple, the execution and process are not. Developing a program that can mimic the human brain, solve problems and apply reasoning is actually quite complex.

Dynamic ads: use predictive analytics to serve the most relevant online ad to your prospective customers, and your ad buys will become exponentially more successful. For us, this means providing google a list of landing pages we would like to use in an ad campaign. The program will then scan the pages and identify critical phrases and keywords for each page. Often, when dynamic ads are incorporated into a campaign, we realize a three-to-four-point increase in ad engagement.
