Shedding Light on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Content Marketing

Valuable Insights to Drive Your Content Strategy
As human beings, we always endeavour to find easier and more efficient ways to do something. Even as the field of content marketing continues to expand, it brings to light many aspects of the industry that are ripe for change. It is no surprise that the content marketing field is seeing transformative developments in the last one or two years.

To keep up with the ever-evolving and crowded landscape of content marketing, several new companies are creating Artificial Intelligence-powered applications and technologies to help content marketing teams produce and distribute hyper-targeted, streamlined content that can dramatically improve results. Rather than the threat of “Robots taking over the world”, AI is being looked upon favourably in the content marketing arena, and the reason is clear. While marketers have only a finite capacity to parse through data generated from numerous formats and channels in order to build a strategy, AI has infinite ability to comb through pages and pages of content in quick time, and come up with precise insights and predictions.

h2>How Artificial Intelligence Helps Content Marketing

For a while, there was mild panic about the coming of AI into content marketing and publishing. However, with time, marketers have understood that robots can actually eliminate guesswork from the content marketing process and make the field extremely powerful through cognitive knowledge. Also, AI frees up time for marketers to concentrate on creating high-value content rather than be involved in time-consuming activities like keyword research and measurement.

Here are some ways in which AI is influencing content publishing:

  1. Journalist Robots:
    Many publishers and content marketers are now using automated writing - machine-written content with inputs from humans - to generate a continuous stream of fact-based information. Associated Press uses automated writing for their quarterly earning updates, as well for some data-heavy sports reportage. While earlier, AP could only cover 300 company quarterly reports, it now generates 3000 articles with the help of automation. Many real-estate companies and e-commerce websites also use automated content to achieve scale, save time and costs, and increase clicks. Automated content is well-suited to areas where information is repetitive, tedious and human subjectivity is not imperative.
  2. Predictive Intelligence:
    It is overwhelming for any content marketing team to keep track of user data being generated daily from all its channels and platforms. Most marketers, therefore, depend on their intuition for segmentation and lead scoring models. This means content is seldom precisely targeted. Companies like Boomtrain and Atomic Reach offer AI-powered Predictive Intelligence that gives its clients the advantage of understanding each customer on an individual level. Content is triggered based on the action taken by the users on your website or other media, taking them one step further down the buying cycle. The right content reaches the right user at the right time.
  3. Quality content:
    AI can also give content marketers insight into the language, tone and structure they must adopt to attract their audience. Toronto-based company, Atomic Reach recently launched a new software product called Atomic AI that allows anyone publishing digital content to pinpoint the readability level of their audience. In some fields like parenting, where users want to aggressively educate themselves, they are ready to apply an advanced readability level, but they may desire a more general reading level for another technical field. Atomic AI’s software offers real-time feedback on language, structure and readability to enhance user engagement and interaction.

AI-powered content marketing is here to stay, and will only grow in the years to come.

What You Need to Know

If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that Google is going to update its search algorithm. Some experts estimate that Google makes 500 to 600 updates annually, or once or twice each day. Most of these changes don’t have a significant impact on your SEO strategy, but every now and then, one comes along that can have serious repercussions. Learn more about two new features of Google search that help users verify and evaluate search results.

Google, one of the largest companies in the world, relies on artificial intelligence for hundreds of it projects. It can seem a little hypocritical for Google to tell businesses that they can’t use AI-generated content on their website. Back in 2010, Google’s John Mueller said that using automated translation tools to create content for your website “could be viewed as being against our Webmaster guidelines.” Here we are, over 10 years later, and Mueller just tweeted that “content generators have been around since the start of the web…Most sites…don’t need help creating low-quality content.” There’s a big discussion in the SEO industry about AI-generated content.

One of the toughest things about creating content is coming up with ideas. You can research keywords all day long, but if you can’t come up with topics around those keywords, your content may fall flat. If your in-house copywriter is struggling to keep up with a content calendar, you might be thinking about working with a content agency. Use these questions to prepare for a meeting with the project manager or as starting points to create your own content.

There just isn't a 'softer' way to say this; it's bad. Duplicate content, as defined by Google, “refers to substantive blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content in the same language or are appreciably similar.” Google highly recommends avoiding duplicate content. The key reason is that the ranking of the page on search engine results may suffer. This means, your audiences will not find your content, and when they do, they are unlikely to consider it useful. Understanding how Google handles duplicate content can help you elevate user experience and create a better content marketing plan.

If you just keep churning out content without reviewing what you’ve already done, you’re missing out on opportunities to make your content perform better. A content audit exercise involves systematically reviewing what you’ve published on your website and blog. As you adjust your content marketing plan to your business goals, this audit can help you find gaps in your content and see what’s been successful.

Search has changed a lot over the years. Search results are displayed to be more efficient for users. Users search for information differently than they used to. There’s still a lot that search can’t do right now. Google aims to change the power of search again with their latest update, Multitask Unified Model, aka MUM. This new update will expand search capability to make search deliver more accurate and relevant information in seconds. Here’s what your content writers need to know about MUM.

Refine Your Content So it Resonates with Your Audience

Many websites churn out content as part of their online digital strategy without considering how their audience will respond to the content. Contextualizing content is a way of adding value to the reader. But what does it mean to put your content in context? It’s a way of approaching content that considers the why and when of your content, not just the person who is reading it. A person who needs a plumber to fix a leak needs different content than someone who is thinking about how to install a new toilet. The first customer needs access to a list of quick tips to prevent damage until a plumber can help while the second customer may want to read through a detailed outline of updating a bathroom for aging-in-place.
