As marketing becomes an increasingly data-driven discipline, companies across all industries and sectors are integrating some form of AI technology into their sales and marketing strategies. With new AI tools entering the market constantly, companies of all sizes and budgets can generate valuable insights and improve productivity across the customer lifecycle, whilst freeing up time for creativity and strategic decision making.

According to Deloitte, 83% of early AI adopters have already achieved substantial or moderate economic benefits. Whether your business is looking to improve personalisation, customer service efforts, content optimisation, ad targeting, brand sentiment or all of the above, an AI tool can help both quickly and at scale.

If you’re looking to up your marketing game, here are some AI tools worth checking out…
