Sometimes it appears that all of the advertisements we encounter on the internet are generated by AI, and this may be the case in the near future.
LinkedIn has joined Google and Meta in developing generative AI-powered solutions for advertisers. People Who Hustle (derogatory) social media site announced the debut of a set of generative AI-based tools to suggest fresh ad material. According to the company’s own study, 55 percent of marketers intend to employ Generative AI in their job, so they’re ahead of them. When users are composing their articles, the new tool, which was deployed in beta to a select set of consumers in North America, recommends up to five headlines and ad copy.
“We know you’re stretched to do more with fewer resources while driving ROI for your company,” said Abhishek Shrivastava, LinkedIn’s vice president of product, in a blog post announcing the new tool(opens in a new tab). “AI Copy Suggestions can help jumpstart your creativity and reduce the time you spend on day-to-day tasks so that you can continue to focus on what matters-continuing to produce memorable campaigns and building your brand.”
It’s hardly shocking that LinkedIn would release this feature – it’s almost expected. Every firm is launching a new generative AI tool right now, and the first way in for social media platforms appears to be by assisting marketers in creating new commercials. Google just released Product Studio(opens in a new tab), a platform that helps sellers produce product graphics using generative AI – think of it as the visual equivalent of this LinkedIn update. Prior to that, Meta introduced AI Sandbox(opens in a new tab), which assists advertisers in creating fresh copy, background pictures, and image cropping for Facebook and Instagram advertising.
AI has long been utilized in marketing, but it has mostly been employed to target specific audiences with customised adverts. These kinds of tools make it more easier and more efficient — but, as with audience targeting, human control is essential.
“As marketers prepare to [use] these new AI-powered tools, such as Sandbox,” Nicole Greene, an analyst at Gartner, told TechTarget(opens in a new tab) following Meta’s AI Sandbox release. “AI-developed variants should still be subject to human oversight before being delivered to consumers.”
