19 April 2023
Every day there seems to be a new development in what AI can do, from predicting the future and writing poetry to identifying diseases, it looks like AI advancement will continue to dominate the tech industry (and news cycle) for the foreseeable future. But what does that mean for affiliate marketing?
Well, we deep dived into what other AI tools affiliates can easily integrate into their work lives. Tools to help with creatives, copywriting, automation, and data analyses, we’ve sifted through the internet to come up with the 7 best AI tools you should be using to optimise your campaigns.
In our last blog post, we looked at how marketers could utilise ChatGPT to streamline and optimise their campaigns. We specifically requested ChatGPT to write a blog post focusing on how affiliates and advertisers can effectively utilise it in their daily work. The result was impressive, despite needing a few minor tweaks, the blog was almost ready to go, reducing this copywriter’s writing time by more than 50% (win!). If you haven’t checked it out, you can find the complete blog post here.
But which AI tools are right for me?
When picking an AI tool for your business, remember to think about what you need and want to achieve. Take a second to think about what tasks you do that could be automated. Then, find the things that are time-consuming and don’t need much human input or strategy. Those are the perfect jobs for an AI tool.
Note: While most of these AI tools are not free, most offer free trials so you can test whether the tool works for you and your workflow. Let’s get into it:
If you run Facebook Ads you know what a rabbit hole Ads Manager can be. On top of this, it can be a challenge to figure out which ad copy, imagery and audience targeting bring you the highest ROI. You can waste hours (and hundreds of dollars) working out the best combination of audience, ad images, copy, and devices. This is where Adcook comes in. The AI software tests different combinations to find the most profitable ad and provides you with actionable insights to optimise your campaigns and conversions.
Yep we can’t make one of these lists without our old faithful friend, ChatGPT. Not only is the program easy to use, but it’s free! Use it to create snappy, ‘clickbaity’ short copy or give it a specific brief for a longer, SEO-heavy blog post. As mentioned earlier, we wrote a blog highlighting the impressive capabilities of ChatGPT. We asked it some hard-hitting questions, then to change the writing style, before finally asking it to translate everything into French. It took less than 10 minutes to complete, an impressive feat if you ask us. Check it out here.
