CMO copilot — v1.1

Testing B2B Content Marketing + AI: Results, pt. 3

Whos using AI at work?


According to Microsoft's 2024 Work Trend Index, the answer is everybody. But instead of using AI provided by employers, the majority are bringing their own AI copilots and tools to work — BYOAI, as the index notes.


That's the reason for this three-part series: to test using AI for marketing and marketing management by trying to get a sense of just how much of the traditional marketing process of segmenting and targeting can be augmented, enhanced and/or replaced by AI.


You can find part 1 here and part 2 here, but the upshot is that AI seems to do a pretty good job in both (1) identifying potential audiences and (2) suggesting specific strategies and tactics that help to engage and convert them.


AI-generated messaging suggestions for a specific target audience from CMO Copilot
Here's an example of messaging suggestions from an AI-enhanced Ideal Customer Profile

Here in part 3, the question is "How well AI can do when it's trying to generate personalized content?"


The intention isn't some kind of John Henry-type contest, where a copywriter goes head-to-head with a soulless AI, but really just to see if AI can remove some of the drudgery marketers and content creators face every day, whether that means helping us get unstuck when we're blocked, generating alternate versions of a headline, paragraph or call-to-action, or suggesting different angles, approaches and POVs we might not get around to thinking up until an hour after our deadline has come and gone.


Test Results, Pt 3:


After starting with eight AI suggestions in part one, narrowing them down to three and then using AI to enhance and expand them in part two, here in part three I'm using AI to generate personalized content both marketing materials and marketing management materials.


Even though I generated a lot of test content, I'm only going to post a few examples and my takeaways because I assume that if you find the results compelling, you'll just sign up for an AI copilot or AI content generator like OpenAI, Anthropic, etc., and try it yourself, using prompts built around your product to create content targeting your audience.


And... just because it worked for me doesn't mean it'll work for you. (Though I would almost guarantee you it will.)


One disclosure: I used CMO Copilot for both ICPs and to generate content. Because it incorporates extensive audience parameters and product parameters directly into the prompt, I've simplified the prompts listed here so this article doesn't turn into an eBook.

And the winner is?


If I was a journeyman copywriter I might be worried.


If I was a market researcher, I might also be worried, but I'd probably be outwardly dismissive, too, since AI isn't 100% there yet in terms of research, and doesn't really provide the data-based validation I've always thought was at least half the reason marketers are willing to pay so much for primary research.


On the other hand, if I was a creative director, agency owner, marketing manager, CMO, VP of Marketing, product marketer, sales manager or any kind of content strategist, I'd be trying to figure out how to incorporate generative AI into my workflow.


As for the AI-generated copy I've included above, I think all of it is workable.


I'd definitely tweak a lot of it here and there, and make sure I fact-checked all the claims and stats, since it made some of those up, but rewriting is always easier than writing, so being able to not start from a completely blank page would be a huge time saver.


Not to mention the fact that everybody in marketing has those days where they just don't have time to sit down, clear their head, tune out the daily chaos and bang out... an email... a blog post... a creative brief... an opportunity assessment... a landing page... an industry overview, etc.


But finding five minutes to have AI do the first draft? That's always doable.


++++++++++++++++++++++


B2B Content Marketing + AI:


TL;DR


AI is definitely a must-have tool for marketers and content creators.


It's great for drafts of just about anything, especially personalized content for specific audiences/languages. You do have to fact-check everything, and revise the occasionally-clunky phrase or paragraph, but it definitely saves a lot of time when you're busy, blocked or struggling with the 32nd draft of something you're sick of working on.


Marketing materials AI produces are generally good, unless you're very particular about how things are framed and/or formatted, since it isn't always consistent that way.


Research? It defintely passes the smell test in most cases, but it's important to view any suggestions with a critical eye. Not because they're wrong, but because AI doesn't qualify, quantify, or validate its conclusions.


As for generating fresh ideas and perspectives, it's hit and miss. (Then again, I've been in plenty of brainstorming sessions that took more time and effort, but didn't produce anything better than what a "brainstorm ideas for..." prompt gets you in just a couple of seconds.)
