How Marketers Should Evaluate and Select AI Tools

How do you sift through the noise?

Establish Clear Goals

Before stepping foot into the vast marketplace of AI marketing tools, define your business goal. Are you hoping to:

  • Improve customer engagement?
  • Optimize a process?
  • Increase content output?
  • Automate repetitive tasks?

Once you know exactly what problem you need solved, the range of options shrinks from overwhelming to more manageable. For example, say a head of growth wants to increase content production efficiency and sets a goal of reducing the time it takes to create and publish content by 30%. In light of this, turning to tools that center on: 

  • Content editing 
  • Content scheduling 
  • Content optimization

While knowing the goal is crucial,  there’s still more to consider. 

Research Available  Integrations

AI tools should make your life easier. So it’s crucial to evaluate one based on how it would fit into You deserve an AI tool that plays well with others 🤝. 

If there are certain tools your team uses and relies on heavily,  ensure your potential AI marketing tools can integrate with them. For example, if you already rely on a marketing automation platform like Marketo, you could start your search by looking for tools that have direct integrations with Marekto. Ask things like: 

  • Are there costs attached to integrating the tool with our systems? 
  • Are there APIs or webhooks available for custom integrations?
  • How well does the tool’s API integrate with our current tools?

Ease of integration is another metric you can use when evaluating tools. White some tools are out of the box integrations, others may demand technical work to fully integrate. So determine what resources your team can set aside for integration and decide accordingly. 

Consider The Learning Curve

A lot of AI marketing tools boast ease of use and intuitive platforms. But it’s still essential to determine how steep the learning curve for the tool will be. Look to the tool to see if onboarding materials are provided and whether there is a support system for troubleshooting in case problems arise 🤖. 

Here are a few handy questions to keep in mind when evaluating AI tools: 

  • Can this AI tool be used by marketers without extensive technical knowledge? 
  • What type of technical support is offered and how quickly can issues be resolved?
  • How much time is required to integrate the tool into existing workflows?

Evaluate Scalability 

Your business (and your tech stack) will continue to evolve. For this reason, keep an eye on the future 🔮as you evaluate AI marketing tools. Consider the tools in light of long-term plans and decide whether they are built to scale. Ask questions like:

  • Is this tool built to handle large amounts of data as our customer base grows?
  • Does the tool offer enough flexibility to work with new channels we’re planning to integrate with in the future? 
  • Are there customization options and features that can change as our business needs change?
