How generative AI can be used to create content, analyse data, and personalise campaigns

February 23, 20244 min read

Generative AI and Its Applications

Generative artificial intelligence (AI) refers to machine learning models that can generate new content, rather than simply categorising or analysing existing data. Two key categories of generative AI gaining widespread adoption are generative text models like GPT-3 and generative image/video models like DALL-E 2. These models can ingest training data like millions of webpages or images and then generate brand new, human-like outputs based on prompts and parameters provided by users. Generative AI is revolutionising many industries by automating time-consuming creative and analytical tasks that previously required extensive human effort from content teams at digital marketing agencies.

Generating Written Content

One of the most practical applications of generative text models is automating content creation. Rather than manually researching and writing blogs, social media posts, product descriptions, emails, and other marketing copy, generative AI can produce draft content simply based on a few prompt words and desired tone/style parameters.

This has major advantages for content marketers and teams:

- Huge time savings - Content can be drafted in seconds rather than hours/days

- Scale creation - Generate 100 product descriptions or blog posts in the time it takes to manually do one

- Consistent branding - Models can precisely emulate your brand's tone and voice

- Data-driven - Generated content can incorporate latest stats, facts, and figures

- Personalisation - Content can be tailored for specific users and scenarios

Leading generative text models like GPT-3 can be quickly fine-tuned on a company's unique dataset of past content to produce relevant, high-quality drafts that capture your brand style. Human creators then review, edit where needed, and approve final copy. But it drastically cuts down initial creation time.


Analysing Data and Insights

Generative AI models can also ingest datasets - like customer data, sales figures, web traffic, social media activity - and generate natural language summaries and insights from the data. This has applications like:

- Data analysis reports - Models can analyse trends in data and highlight key takeaways in a report format

- Competitive intelligence briefings - Analyse a competitor's web traffic, social media growth, and other data points and generate an intelligence briefing

- Content strategy insights - Analyse engagement on past content and recommend high-level strategic insights

- Product analytics - Analyse usage data and app feedback to highlight ways to improve the product

- Social media sentiment analysis - Analyse social conversations and comments related to a brand and summarise sentiment and suggestions

Rather than having human analysts painstakingly review datasets to create reports and briefings, generative AI dramatically expedites the process by programmatically identifying key data points and communicating insights.

Personalisation and Recommendations

Generative AI also shows promise for personalising content, product recommendations, and other experiences for customers. Models can take data like:

- Purchase history

- Browsing behavior

- Demographic info

- Location

- Platform/device

And generate personalised experiences like:

- Customised product recommendations - Ex. Recommending sizes/colors based on past purchases

- Tailored content - Generating blogs, emails, web pages customised to a user's interests

- Personalised special offers - Creating discount codes and promotions tailored to a user's behavior

- AI avatars - Generate custom 3D avatars tailored to user attributes

- Location-specific recommendations - Suggesting local stores, events based on user's city

This level of personalisation at scale is only possible with generative AI. The models create customised interactions versus a rigid, one-size-fits-all experience.

Key Advantages of Generative AI

Generative AI

The applications of generative text, image, video, and data AI models share some key advantages:

- Automates repetitive, time-intensive tasks - Whether it's writing product copy or analysing data, generative AI speeds the process from hours to seconds

- Scales instantly - Want 100 variations of an ad? Generative AI can create more content, insights, recommendations at scale

- Learns and improves over time - Models continually get better at tasks as they ingest more data

- Democratises creation - Enables anyone to generate content vs. needing creative/analytical experts

- Unlocks creativity - Models can come up with ideas and content a human may never think of

- Cost-effective - Pricing models are a fraction of hiring more in-house marketers and analysts

As the technology improves, generative AI will become an indispensable asset for content creation, data analysis, personalisation, and optimised marketing results. With the right human guidance, it has revolutionary potential to transform the customer experience by delivering hyper-personalized interactions.
