How Start with AI Marketing

“I’ve never used AI to improve my marketing, I’ve played a bit with a couple of AI Tools. I could never go back to a pre-AI age.”

In which category do you fit?

For me, I definitely fit in the ‘I’m in love with AI’ category.

In this guide, I want to share how to make good use of AI tools so you can bridge the gap as fast as possible.

The more complex a tool, the more powerful it is.

It’s easier to learn to ride a tricycle, but a bicycle is much faster after you’ve mastered it.

I’ve spent hundreds of hours (maybe even thousands of hours) and I’m the co-founder of StoryLab.ai, A future-proof AI Marketing Toolkit with almost 100,000 users and discovered years ago how powerful AI Tools are and I’m constantly learning how to apply it to the best of my abilities to help reach my goals.

Because… O boy! This tech is going FAST!

When we started StoryLab.ai and the AI Marketing Copy Generators were running on GPT3, the ability for AI to help was cool, but when we went to GPT 3.5 and now GPT4, my goodness. What a difference. The same goes for AI Text To Image Generators and I’m really looking forward to improvements in the AI Text To Video space.

In this guide, I want to help you apply AI Marketing Tools to help achieve your goals much faster than ever before.

Create variations with AI so you can select and perfect the best piece

One of the cool powers of AI is that it can help you come up with variations from different angles.

Regardless if you’re a seasoned copywriter or not a copywriter at all; producing good, sticky, punchy copy from a variety of angles can get pretty exhausting.

Think about your Google ads. How difficult it is to come up with 5 headline variations. What if you’re running dozens of Google ads? Would it not be awesome to get help from AI to come up with variations and you simply select the ones you love most and perfect those?

Creating variations and getting insights from different angles is not just great for ads. Also for your headlines, your social posts, your email subject lines, and even email body text. AI can do it. AI can help you brainstorm. 24/7. Whenever you need it.

And here’s the cool thing.

AI can not just help to come up with Marketing Copy Variations. Also Visuals! 

You have no idea how many visuals we’ve generated for this blog post. At the end of the day, we’ve selected just a handful. The best ones 😉

Use one of the AI Marketing Copy Generators we shared above to create awesome copy variations and try one of the AI Tools below to create awesome visuals. Some AI Platforms (like StoryLab.ai, Writersonic, etc. offer both in one platform).

Scale Content Production with AI

Of course, the coolest thing (in my opinion) is the fact that AI can help you achieve your dreams much faster.

When I have a plan, it’s never; ‘I need to create this one piece of content’. It’s a much bigger plan / strategy and I need quite some pieces of content and it’s quite daunting just thinking about it.

For instance.

The guide you’re reading right now is just one small piece of the bigger strategy of helping people to become more effective with their marketing. AI is just a part of that yet again.

With the help of AI, I can achieve my dream a lot faster because creating a piece of content can be 10x faster. And the quality will be even better than if I would not use AI.

In my book ‘How to get 1,000,000 website traffic with the help of AI‘ I go over how AI can fit into your overarching Content and SEO Strategy. Be sure to check it out! Simply creating more content (even with the help of AI) will not mean you’ll achieve your goals if the pieces of content you’re creating do not fit into your SEO strategy. 

When we talk about scaling content with the help of AI, we’re not simply talking about written articles. It’s also your YouTube videos and getting AI to help your write or refine your script. Create variations for your YouTube Titles, Write YouTube Descriptions faster than ever before so you can get back to creating your next video faster, and much more.

Next to your articles and video content, AI can also help with content distribution so you can get back to creating more content faster and so you can engage on Social Media instead of wasting time on creating social media captions and visuals. The opportunities are endless.
