How to Use AI to Improve Your Marketing Personalization

Personalization is a must for effective marketing campaigns. We talked to Tim Cakir, CEO of TaskDrive, on the latest episode of the Hot Pursuit Podcast. TaskDrive is a company that pairs businesses with AI-powered human virtual assistants. We discussed the use of generative AI for personalization in marketing campaigns.

Tim explained how generative AI can be used on both manual and automated levels to personalize messages and content. Tim also shared insights on using the OpenAI platform and connecting APIs with ChatGPT.

How TaskDrive Leverages AI

TaskDrive is at the forefront of leveraging artificial intelligence to delegate repetitive tasks, enabling businesses to focus on more important things. The heart of our discussion centered around a pivotal question: How can generative AI, like GPT-4, transform personalization in our marketing campaigns?

We’ve all been subjected to personalization efforts that get it wrong. The wrong name, the wrong school, mentioning a connection we don’t actually know. Besides being annoying, it will have the opposite result of what we intended. It makes our campaigns seem even less personal than if we hadn’t tried to personalize them in the first place.

Tim shared invaluable insights into the blend of manual and automated processes in achieving personalization at scale. From extracting facts about a potential lead to enriching databases with the latest social media posts or interests, the possibilities are vast. What struck me most was the underlying theme of using available online data ethically and creatively to craft messages that resonate on a personal level.

Moreover, the conversation delved into the technical side of things, exploring how the integration of APIs with AI assistants can automate and personalize marketing campaigns like never before.
