How to Get Started with AI Marketing in 2023
Check out our AI Marketing Examples, Use Cases, Ethics, and More.
AI is coming for my job!
No it isn’t.
Just like tractors, factory conveyor belts, and PC’s did not, neither will AI.
As marketers, we always need to improve and keep learning. The same goes for using AI in your Marketing Strategy and daily content creation work.
We’ve created a Hub to help you understand how to Use AI to improve your marketing with a focus on AI Marketing Copy Generators.
There is a lot to cover on this topic and if you’re actually looking to learn how AI can help, and you’re looking to implement AI Tools, I would not advise to try six different AI Tools at the same time and only scratch the surface of learning about the capabilities. Focus on understanding the playing field, and then testing out and understanding one platform, first.
As the provider of many AI Marketing Copy Generator tools, we’re constantly talking with our users and figuring out how AI can help improve their marketing.
At the same time, we ourselves are using our AI daily to improve our own markting. Finally – although we don’t believe AI is coming for all of our jobs – we do feel that it’s important to think about and prepare for the possible societal and ethical implications of this technology being adopted on a large scale.

When provided with any new marketing tool without context, it’s difficult to use it to its fullest. That’s what we’ve built this hub for: for you to be able to understand this technology better, and to get the most out of it. And out of yourself, at the same time.
Whenever someone else who uses AI Marketing Copy Generators tells you they’re using them, and that they love it or hate it, you’ll know exactly what to ask and what to share about your successes and use cases.
Let’s get into it!

What is AI Marketing
AI Marketing is using the power of AI (Artificial Intelligence) to reach Marketing Goals Faster.
Marketers always relied on static marketing tools that did not learn and did not help take away any of the thinking part of their work. Then came predictive marketing tools that were less static and now AI can be added to the Marketing Tool Stack, which is a lot more dynamic.
The Future of AI Marketing
What does the future of AI Marketing look like? AI will help marketers to make better desicions, create work outputs, improve collaboration and much more.
AI will be a great addition to any marketing team. It’s an assistant that you can ask questions and will deliver answers, where in our experience most people will be amazed about how ‘smart’ the AI actually is.
AI Marketing has been around for quite some time. Just check your Gmail. It’s been a while since Gmail’s AI predicted what you would like to write and suggested to auto complete the entire sentence for you.
At the moment, we’re seeing a big emergence of new and better AI Marketing Tools and of Digital Marketers embracing the technology. We’re pretty confident that StoryLab.ai is at the cutting edge of this developing trend.
Are you one of these marketers and content creators that are already using AI to help you create more and better content?
Econsultancy reports 18% of North America-based marketers currently use AI for content creation. Meanwhile, 23% use it for creative and design work.
How much content can we expect to be created with the help of AI marketing copy generators in the near future?
A large study and forecast by Fortune Business Insights predicted that by the end of this year already, 30% of digital content will be generated with the help of AI-based technology. And that by 2027 the AI market is expected to reach $267 Billion.
Imagine a world where 30% of online content is created by or with the help of AI systems like GPT-3, which is capable of creating copy that is almost indistinguishable from copy created by human authors.
Is AI the future of Digital Marketing?
This question is based on the notion that AI will eventually become so smart that it will take over all human inputs and AI will automate all marketing campaigns.
This is a very important question.
Will there be a time that AI is so smart that a company can basically just ‘turn on a marketing switch’. Just a simple ‘yes’ checkmark and AI will take over and not one human marketer would need to interfere?
Would that be a good thing?
Good for whom? Business owners? Society?
Would that be a bad thing?
As of today, many marketing desicions are already based on algorithms and a/b testing to find out what people react to and what makes them purchase or take an action.
Setting up these tests and seeing what works best, and then set up another 100 tests and having an ultimate landing page or ad could be something AI could take on easily. For sure.
It will also be able to, based on learnings, create marketing copy, images, videos, you name it. So in other words, it would not be a stretch to believe that there could be an ‘on button’ for AI marketing.
The question is: apart from that being possible, and possibly very cheap – will it be the wise, ethical, responsible thing to do?
Here at StoryLab.ai, we don’t believe in AI doing everything all by its robot self. We believe in human creativity, connection, and discernment – and we believe in amplifying that with the help of technology.
We believe marketers and content creators have more impact on society than most of us really realize. To decide how and to what extent we want to be implementing AI in our marketing and content creation process –
A crucial question will be:
What kind of society do we want to build if AI Marketing goes on Autopilot?
Let’s say that in a couple of years from now, anyone starting a business can press that marketing switch and have AI test, create, predict, publish, and analyze everything there is to know and do – all by itself.
Who will this AI be trying to influence?
People with hopes and dreams and people with problems. AI will test new ads and offerings untill it understands and pushes out exactly what makes us tick. Is that what we want for our society?
We’ve already seen the harmful effects that data and emergent digital technologies can have when applied in the realms of marketing and even in the democratic process. [Online marketing and (EU) elections in the digital age — your choices are not your own | by Erwin Lima | HackerNoon.com | Medium]
The question of whether the choices we make are, in fact, our own choices is already becoming more and more difficult to answer.
But no worries, some will say: as with every new technology, society will adapt.
The big question is, who will be faster? AI or Society?
Will Society be reshaped in time, to not see every human being simply as a consumer before AI can take over the marketing department?
Will AI take over the marketing department before society is reshaped and help business owners to optimize the goals of these business owners – often to the detriment of the broader public?
AI Marketing in 2023
Let’s not overestimate, but please, let’s also not underestimate how powerful AI Marketing can become. Marketing always was one of the most powerful tools for businesses and governments. Remember, Propaganda is also a form of marketing (the two fields were founded almost simultaneously and strongly influenced each other) and we all know very well how powerful that can be.
Let’s take a look at what you as a marketer can do today to start implementing AI in your Marketing Strategy. How to it in the smartest, most effective, and most responsible way.
As mentioned, marketers and content creators; storytellers, have always had immense powers over people’s lives. That’s why governments often stepped in to regulate. With AI it’s no different.
You as a marketer are either using your powers as ethically as possible or you’re not.
As an AI Marketing Copy provider, we saught to put on paper what standards we want to hold ourselves and our users accountable to. Check out how you can use AI Copywriters for good.
And always check yourself on the three points mentioned on that page, as a rule of thumb.
How to get the most out of your AI Copy generators, and yourself
We said it before: don’t overestimate the power of new technologies such as AI. In the case of AI copy generators, there’s a specific field of worry: AI language processors such as GPT-3 can’t actually think, and thereby don’t actually understand what they’re saying.
How do you circumvent this problem, and how do you get the most out of your AI copywriting assistant?
It’s actually fairly simple.
Use AI Copy generators to generate ideas for stories. Ideas for titles, outlines, intros, for entire blocks of text for ads, videos, e-mails, and what have you.
Getting decent, relevant ideas and copy down is what AI copy generators are actually very good at.
But then: let your unique, human creativity and insight come to play.
Use the ideas and other outputs the AI tool is giving you as writing prompts. Use them to have something to riff off of. Edit, add, rearrange using your own unique insights, knowledge, experience, thoughts, and feelings — to create something of actual value for your audience.
When you’re done, let a human reader read your story. Keep fishing for feedback and make your stories better — and make yourself a better writer and teller of stories.
That’s how you get the most out of your AI Marketing and copy generator.
And out of yourself.

At StoryLab.ai, we believe that humans can reach their full potential by telling effective stories. The same goes for businesses, because what are business if not humans organized toward a common goal?
These goals often have something to do with growth. Growth in terms of expansion, or growth in terms of innovation, evolution; Growth in terms of ‘more sustainable value created.’ – Our personal favorite.

Our AI Marketing Copy Generators help you achieve just that. But there is much more that you as a marketer should do to have a real positive impact.
In our vision article, we’ve gone over what Growth Storytelling is and why it will, in time, replace Conent Marketing. Why it’s a more sustainable, more sensible approach and why it will give marketers and content creators better results than the old approach of ‘marketing content’.
Check out our Growth Storytelling introduction article.
We’ve also created a Growth Storytelling Framework to help you take this more holistic view of and approach to Content Creation from theory to practice.
