AI has been a buzzword in marketing for over a decade, but it used to be reserved for the largest companies with the biggest budgets.

But thanks to innovation and competition over the last few years, there are plenty of AI tools for marketing teams of all sizes.

If you’re looking to take advantage of the power of AI to get more out of your marketing budgets and team members, look no further. This list covers the ten best marketing AI tools in 2024.

What are AI marketing tools?

AI marketing tools are software tools and platforms that leverage some form of artificial intelligence to complete marketing-related tasks.

For example, an algorithm can help you quickly identify key insights from your marketing analytics rather than sifting through the data manually.

The many applications of generative AI in marketing

In a 2023 survey, 1,000+ professional marketers singled out market and performance analytics, segmentation, campaign creation, and personalization as top use cases.

These marketers have been working with AI for years — like the ad targeting algorithms on Google and Facebook. So they understand the breadth of application.

There are almost no areas of marketing where some form of AI couldn’t help boost productivity in some way.

How AI marketing tools help companies boost productivity

82% of marketing professionals believe AI will help boost the productivity of marketing teams.

‎It makes sense. In the marketing team of the future, you no longer have underpaid interns doing data entry and menial tasks — AI can handle that. But is that the only way AI will positively impact your marketing team?

The majority of surveyed marketers also agreed that AI will improve learning and development, marketing ROI, and innovation. Many (43%) also felt it would improve the work quality.

We’re not discussing some sci-fi future where AI handles everything from start to finish. Instead, it can be an assistant in various roles — from copywriting ideation to proofreading, report creation, and design.

Key considerations for choosing an AI marketing tool

Thanks to the increase in public interest and investment dollars ($34 billion invested in AI startups in quarters 1-3 in 2023), there are plenty of options on the market. However, not every tool is right for every team because they have many use cases.

To help you make an educated and helpful choice, you need to consider these three factors:

  • Your priority marketing channels
  • The most time-consuming tasks of you and your marketing team members
  • Your existing MarTech stack and crucial integrations

Diagram of the key considerations for choosing an AI marketing tool

‎What marketing channels are you most invested in?

Where do you spend the biggest part of your marketing budget? If you have a large social media marketing team and spend little on ads, tools focused on organic social media make sense. But you need to go even deeper than that.

Which social media platform are you most successful or most invested in? Different tools specialize on different platforms, and this should impact your decision.

You should naturally consider different tools if you’re more focused on bottom-of-funnel PPC campaigns.

What tasks do your marketing team members spend the most time on?

Within the channels you’ve chosen to focus on, what tasks do you spend the most time on?

If you use a project management platform and do time tracking, you can look at the analytics. If not, creating a process map with the actual team members is a good place to start. Remember, you’re not just trying to optimize how you work. You want to increase the efficiency and output of everyone on the team.

Once you have figured out these tasks, you may find that there are very specific AI tools designed to help you with them. For example, there are AI tools for making small adjustments to PPC campaigns, creating specialized reports, or designing new creative.

Integrations and your existing MarTech stack

Finally, you need to consider the scope of what you’re trying to automate. If that includes analytics or personalization, you need to consider your existing MarTech stack and how these tools integrate.

The last thing you want is to invest months and thousands of dollars to figure out an API-based solution.

To help you choose useful software, we’ve handpicked and categorized different AI marketing tools by use case.
