Artificial Intelligence (AI) has many uses, especially for online marketers and social media managers. If you have a social media strategy already in place, or you’re still building yours – have you taken into consideration AI tools that can help?
One of the most significant drawbacks when running campaigns is slogging through the mundane, repetitive tasks, as well as examining the vast amount of performance data from different sources.
If you have a horde of interns and data scientists at your disposal, it’s not such an issue. But if you’re managing campaigns with a low headcount, or even by yourself, then you may want to check out these AI tools, which will make your life much easier.

If you’re struggling to develop quality copy for your online ads, you can either hire a copywriter or turn to Phrasee.

AI may seem like a complicated topic to tackle and understand, but it’s pretty simple. You can split AI tools into two separate camps. The first is automation, whereby the AI completes all of your tasks for you. This is useful if you need to post on more than one account as it disregards the needs to login to multiple platforms and upload the images and content yourself.
The second type of AI is machine learning, where the AI program can receive new data and information to produce recommendations and give valuable insights. The more data it collects, the better the output.
These are just some of the most popular AI tools you can currently use. Before you decide to use any of them, first identify the weakness(or even weaknesses) of your social media strategy, and then decide if using an AI tool will benefit you.
The benefit can be either increasing your overall ROI or reducing the required time needed to spend on a task. And if necessitated, adjust your strategy to get the most out of using automation and machine learning AI.
