According to Oxford Insights, AI technologies are expected to contribute $15 billion to the world economy by 2030.
Today’s big companies like Amazon, Netflix, Google, Facebook, Uber have been using artificial intelligence as a part of their branding and marketing strategies, especially in recent years. In the near future, customer experiences are expected to be completely controlled by artificial intelligence.
Companies that use AI techniques in their organizations are already working smarter and benefiting from increased efficiency. The tools that were previously suitable for enterprise-level companies have become affordable and accessible for medium and small-sized businesses today.
In this article, we will examine how artificial intelligence is a game-changer in the field of branding and marketing.
What is Artificial Intelligence in Brief
We can define Artificial intelligence as the ability of a computer or machine to mimic human capabilities ( recognizing objects, understanding and responding to language, making decisions, solving problems ) without any human intervention.
AI works by processing large amounts of data and combining it with intelligent algorithms at high speed. This allows the software to learn automatically from patterns or features in the data. That way, AI can be used to recognize data, make predictions, or even to make recommendations.
Examples of AI techniques in our daily life are :
Since we briefly talked about artificial intelligence, now let’s look at the impacts of artificial intelligence on branding and marketing.
AI and Digital Advertising
You may have heard the terms Programmatic Advertising and Cognitive Advertising before. Now get ready to learn about AI Advertising. While we used to make ads ourselves, it is no longer necessary thanks to artificial intelligence.
One of the great examples of this is Coca-Cola and Quartz, partnered with DigitasLBi Hewlett Packard Enterprise. With such a win-win situation, they poised to win the market.
Let’s look at Albert, Harley-Davidson’s AI-driven platform for marketing.
Albert increased sales rates by 2,930 percent, which was great for Harley-Davidson marketers. Thus, time and effort were gained. According to Albert’s study, he discovered that the word “call” was 450 percent more effective than the word “buy.” The improvement was obvious.
Real - Time Customer Support
Fast responses and providing effective solutions are the most important features sought in good digital support for customers. Chatbots developed with artificial intelligence technology provide a fast and good service 24/7, creating an effective experience in customer support.
Chatbots can answer questions, perform simple transactions, and take orders. In this way, it can be in constant engagement with customers. For this reason, chatbots play an important role in today’s marketing field.

Best Content or Product Recommendations
Like we said earlier with Netflix Example, Amazon, Youtube, Spotify and many other big companies created their own recommendation systems. Customer profile information, demographics, and similar information as well as likes and dislikes data are constantly updated in the databases, and the most relevant products are constantly recommended to users.
The point to note here is that customers get used to these services and expect other companies to do the same.

Real - Time Customer Support
With AI technology, the user experience on websites can be increased with the help of intelligent personalization. For Example :
The 2017 Real-Time Personalization Survey by Evergage reported that 33% of marketers use artificial intelligence in personalized web experiences. According to the response of 63% of respondents, it reported increasing conversion rates by 51%.
Many publisher brands such as The Wall Street Journal, Pandora, La Redoute, and TopFan also stated that they are using artificial intelligence to increase their conversion rates.
For example, Pandora brings together machine learning algorithms and human curators to offer users new songs they might like. Music services provide us with many benefits in this area. One of them is that the algorithms work on a lot of content, and more relevant content can be recommended.
