AI Applications in Digital Marketing
Some of the main applications of AI in the field of digital marketing are:
Companies can adapt to the user’s needs, anticipating them to offer them the product or service they need when they are looking for it. Predictive analytics is based on algorithms, data, and machine learning techniques to determine the probability of something happening using historical data.
Through AI, original and interesting content can be created using certain tools. They do so based on basic information and certain data. Several major media outlets use technology to create news and drive traffic to their website.
With Artificial Intelligence, personalized content can be offered to each user automatically. 90% of the world’s data has been generated in the last two years thanks to digitization, and the Internet is used more than before.
This creates the need to develop more information, but this is of such magnitude that it would take people a long time to process it. Hence the need for Big Data and AI systems with infinite data processing capacity.
Programmatic advertising uses AI to automate the purchase of ad space, making ads reach more specific population segments and lowering the cost of acquisition with greater advertising effectiveness.
More and more companies are turning to them to offer effective 24-hour communication to customers. They allow managing many queries simultaneously with a high level of quality in this service and improving customer service.
AI makes it possible to automate marketing thanks to human intervention, responsible for applying rules and determining flows. However, it is expected that these tools will soon be autonomous and adapt to users thanks to their profile and historical data.

Knowing the causes of the investment is one of the advantages of AI, which allows you to improve marketing actions by knowing what works best. This knowledge is also very useful for understanding the best way to sell the product through customization and enhancing customer satisfaction.
Several tools use artificial language processing to improve email marketing results, complementing marketers’ actions. Therefore, it is a good complement to other email marketing strategies.

Some tools apply AI to design web pages based on information provided by the user, generating good web results.
Thanks to the prediction of trends and better user knowledge, AI facilitates the creation for the launch of products and services.
