The 8 AI tools for marketers

With AI, you can improve your company’s marketing. It can support you in several areas, allowing you to work more efficiently. In this blog, discover more about what AI is, how it can be used in marketing and the 8 commonly used AI tools.


AI stands for artificial/artificial intelligence and refers to the machines capable of performing tasks normally performed by humans. The aim is to make computers and devices think and act in a way similar to human intelligence, but faster and more accurately without human intervention.

Using AI in marketing

AI has transformed the marketing world. You can use it for various things which gives marketers a new way to understand customers, create fun experiences, create targeted content and much more!

What can AI be used for in marketing?

Customer insight

You can gain deeper insights into customer behaviour through large-scale data analysis. This allows marketers to better understand how customers interact with brands, what content works better, create targeted campaigns and then optimise them for good results. So AI can help you get easier customer insight.


This is one of the most powerful applications of AI. You can create unique experiences for customers based on their behaviour, preferences and previous interactions. This increases engagement and conversion rates. You can do this by sending customer-centric emails, dynamic content on your website based on previous purchases or browser sessions, birthday offers, and much more.

Chatbots and client service

Chatbots are often powered by AI and enable companies to have real-time interactions with customers by using language processing and machine learning. These bots can answer questions, provide support and even influence purchase decisions. So through these chatbots, you can ensure good customer service so they don’t have to wait hours for an answer.

You can also use AI as a marketer to support content creation and optimisation. It can help with writing ad copy and determining which content is most effective for certain audiences.

Example of how to edit images in Canva

The ‘Magic Edit’ tool lets you edit photos in Canva. For example, you can change the colour of a polo shirt. Very handy if you don’t want a certain colour in your photo. So you can also use this tool to change background, etc.

Through these applications, AI can help marketers work more efficiently, gain better insights into their target audiences and develop more personalised and effective marketing strategies.

Besides these applications, AI also has a major limitation and that is reliability. Never believe what AI tells you. E.g. if you ask in ChatGPT: write me a blog on topic. Then you will get a blog on the subject, but it may not contain accurate information. So be sure to check this before posting anything online. So AI is definitely interesting as support for your work and not to be used depending on it.

Commonly used AI tools in marketing

Additional tip

How to write a good prompt for ChatGPT

To have good results, it is very important to also write a good prompt. The better your prompt is, the better the answer/result will be.

That’s how you’re going to get the information you want. So a prompt can certainly be long as long as it adds value.

  1. Be clear and specific about the information/text you want to obtain,
  2. Give background contact about what kind of company you are, what products/services you sell, etc.nd anything important to the prompt,
  3. ask maximum one thing at a time,
  4. avoid personal questions
  5. try your prompt. Is it not yet fully what you want? Then provide additional information to arrive at the result you want.

AI will undoubtedly continue to evolve, so these tools will improve and even be added. Be careful! If you have texts written by an AI tool read them carefully first, check if the facts are correct and also rewrite the text because search engines like Google penalise web pages written entirely by AI.
