Some of the biggest brands like Google, IBM, and Airbnb are using AI marketing tools to gain a competitive edge. We’ve uncovered some of the best AI marketing tools on the market today and listed them below.

The arcane art of marketing has been irrevocably changed by the invention of AI software. Hundreds of these tools have sprung up in recent years, so it can be trick to know which of them will provide best value.

It’s important to zero in on what you want your AI marketing tool to achieve, so let’s start by identifying what artificial intelligence is especially useful for, and what it can do for your business.

What is AI used for in marketing?

In 2024, marketing is all about data — information on your competitors, on market trends, and on what your customers (and potential customers) are saying about your product. There’s a lot of information out there but it’s hard to manually source.  AI makes this process much simpler. It does quickly, and at scale, what would be onerous to achieve by hand.

Techniques including sentiment analysis can be used to aggregate positive and critical product reviews. Competitor intelligence can keep you up to date with what rival brands are doing. You can improve the ROI of your marketing campaigns with better targeting. There are even AI-driven systems to write creative copy, helping you keep up with the internet’s incessant demand for content (SEO optimization).

It’s likely that you’ll use more than one AI-powered software solution. In fact, most data manipulation tools now use the power of machine-learning and automation to achieve impressive results at scale. In this rundown of some of the best AI-driven apps and platforms, we’ll explain exactly what each one does, what its benefits are, as well as any limitations it might have.

Okay, let’s dive a bit deeper into each one.

1. Jasper AI (for copywriting)

Jasper AI

The people behind Jasper, the best-known of the various AI-powered copywriting systems, quickly became a victim of their own success. Marvel sent them a cease-and-desist letter after they had secured more than 350,000 users. Their AI was previously known as Jarvis, cheekily inspired by Tony Stark (AKA Iron Man)’s virtual assistant. And so, Jasper was reborn.

Jasper, this human writer must grudgingly accept, is remarkably good at creating copy, in a range of tones and styles, on any topic you can throw at it. Its creators say it has “read” 10% of the internet. How well does Jasper work?  Using a free trial, I asked Jasper to write 40 words about AI in business automation. It came up with:

AI is the next step in business automation. AI had been instrumental in improving business processes. AI can be deployed to an organization’s business process for a particular strategic purpose to increase efficiencies, cut costs and improve customer service.

This is certainly a decent start, although you still require human intervention to make sense of the flow of the copy, and there’s an element of repetition. Jasper’s natural language processing is perhaps best seen as a tool to create early drafts for later polishing by human copywriters.

Whether you’re looking to write copy for email campaigns, product descriptions for ecommerce products, blog posts, or landing page copy, Jasper can do it all.

It has a simple and intuitive dashboard, is inexpensive to implement, and will certainly speed up the content creation process. Jasper, which boasts over 5,000 5-star product reviews, won’t turn you into Tolstoy, but it will keep those vital SEO page scores high.

2. Lexica Art (for blog thumbnails)

Lexica Art

Lexica Art is a high-quality AI image generator that's one of the best I've seen. It creates some of the most realistic AI images and you can generate marketing content for almost anything. I've personally used this generative AI-powered tool to create blog thumbnail images for my SEO (search engine optimization) clients. There are different prompts you can use and save so all the images it generates are "on brand" with whatever brand guidelines you have. Some brands even use it for their social media posts.

If you're looking to move away from standard stock images for your blog thumbnails, this is a tool you definitely need to check out.

3. Surfer SEO (for content writing)

Surfer SEO

Surfer SEO is a content optimization tool that helps you create copy for ranking on search engines — a worthy goal for any content strategy. While you do the writing, Surfer assesses and scores your content according to its keyword density, readability, length, use of headers, and other aspects which push content up the rankings.

To use Surfer SEO, first you choose your domain, niche, and target audience. The system will then give you actionable insights by highlighting the top-ranking keywords, suggest a content outline structure, and even define image density for your piece. You can work directly on Surfer SEO, which has its own text editor, or copy-paste for quick analysis. As you edit your work, you’ll see the SEO improving in real time.

Integrations are available with other content marketing tools like Jasper, WordPress, Google Docs, and more. Surfer SEO promises hit your organic growth metrics for Google search, and satisfied clients include FedEx, Shopify, Quantas, and Viacom.

4. Notion AI (for productivity)

Notion AI

Notion AI is a cool new feature that Notion recently added to their popular productivity platform. It uses AI to make getting stuff done in Notion a breeze. Basically, you can ask questions in plain English about anything in your Notion workspace — whether it's your notes, projects, docs or wikis — and Notion AI will automatically pull up the answer. It's like having a personal assistant built into the project management tool.

The AI can also help you write, brainstorm ideas, fill out tables automatically, and more. So it takes a lot of the manual busywork out of using Notion.

This feature costs either $8 or $10 per member per month depending on if you pay annually or monthly. It's available for any paid Notion plan, and can even be added to free plans.

Notion takes privacy and security seriously too. Your data is encrypted and they comply with data protection laws like GDPR. The AI doesn't use customer data to train itself unless you specifically opt-in to that.

You can try Notion AI free for a while, with the number of free responses you get depending on your workspace membership. The plan is for the AI integration to expand over time and add even more capabilities. Since it works seamlessly with Notion's existing text editor and features, it should feel like a natural upgrade.

The bottom line is that Notion AI makes it even easier to stay organized and work smarter using this popular tool. The AI handles a lot of tedious tasks so you can focus on getting meaningful work done.

5. Content at Scale (for generating SEO blog posts)

Content at Scale

Content at Scale is a platform I've been experimenting with for the past few months and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. Out of all the AI writing tools that I've used, this is one of the few that passes AI detectors. Any time I generate an article with this tool, and run it through an AI detector, it usually comes out at least 70% human-written — which is quite impressive.

The platform is still quite new and the UI can be a bit buggy. But the content it generates is some of the best I've seen when it comes to AI content generation. It's not as flexible like Surfer is in terms of being able to label H2 and H3 headings in your articles, but the actual content it generates is a bit more higher quality than that of Surfer and even Jasper. I definitely recommend playing around with this tool if you're looking to generate SEO blog posts. Of course, you always want a real human to review the final draft.

6. Originality AI (for AI content detection)

Originality AI

Originality AI is an AI content detector and plagiarism tool. I run almost every piece of content through this tool these days to make sure it passes has being written by a human. Of course, I won't run actual human writing through it. But I'll generally run AI generated content, from a tool like Content at Scale, through this just to double check what areas need some work.

This is also a good tool to run your content through if you're working with freelance writers and want to make sure they're not using ChatGPT to generate large portions of text. Of course, take these detectors with a grain of salt. There have been reports of it falsely accusing human writing as AI writing. But, out of most of the AI content detectors out there, I found this one to be one of the best.

7. Writer (content writing for teams)


First off, Writer has secured a high value URL, indicating lofty ambitions. They position their platform as a writer’s assistant for marketing teams. Writer is a collaborative efficiency tool which takes some of the features of a traditional text editor like Word and turbocharges them.

Features include autocorrect, autocomplete, grammar and clarity checks, and there are often-used snippets to paste in. There’s also a suite of intelligence tools to maintain house style, including a database of approved terminology (vital for tech, legal and financial firms). Their AI is light touch, sitting in the background making recommendations rather than rewriting block of copy.

When you have a virtual or hybrid team working with minimal in-person supervision, this AI writer could provide all the reassurance you need that your copy remains professional and accurate across all uses. Clients include Deloitte, Accenture, Twitter and Vistaprint.

8. Undetectable AI (for rewriting AI content)

Undetectable AI

Undetectable AI is another AI content detector similar to Originality AI. What makes this one different is that it can actually rewrite AI generate content from ChatGPT to make it sound like a human. I've tested this by creating a paragraph of text in ChatGPT, running it through Undetectable AI to rewrite it, then double checking it with Originality AI. To my surprise, it does a pretty good job.

Again, you want to take these AI detectors and rewriters with a grain of salt. Sometimes this tool will rewrite things that don't totally make sense. Or it will purposely mess up in terms of grammar. So, you'll still want to read everything it generates to make sure there are no errors.

9. Fullstory (for digital experiences)


By digital experience, Fullstory mean the journey a site visitor goes through from their first visit to conversion (or dismissal). They make the valuable point that you can learn a huge amount from the unpredictable things users do, which couldn’t have been anticipated.

To make this level of insight possible, Fullstory employ an AI to track every cursor move, click, and page visit across a visitor’s journey to create their “story”. This can then be compared with thousands of other visitors’ stories to derive insight. Fullstory leverage the processing power and scalability of AI automation to discover opportunities and errors much more quickly than any human observer would.

Fullstory claim users will make cost savings, retain more customers, and improve the UX of their site significantly. Their current client roster includes GAP, Zipcar, Icelandair, and Forbes.

10. Zapier (for automating tasks)


Zapier is really the Lego of tech stack and process integration. Using it you can build connections and marketing automations between thousands of different systems, saving time, promoting efficiency, reducing repetitive tasks, and making cost savings. You build customized workflows to link actions in one system to automated processes in one or more others. The salient data is pulled from the right place each time.

These automations can be written without coding, and there are templates to speed things up. Zapier calls its automations zaps, and it features over 3,000 integrations at time of writing. You can even create branching workflows, dependent on logical criteria you set.

The AI is at work behind the scenes interpreting signals which trigger processes with a speed and efficiency no human team could master. Clients rave about the time savings these zaps create. There’s excellent support too, including a blog, webinars, online no-code community, and Zapier University for training.

11. Hemingway App (for content editing)

Hemingway Editor

Even if you only want to use human writers to create your copy, AI can at least help edit it for maximum readability and clarity. Named after a writer who was famously sparing with words, Hemingway highlights aspects of “poor” style including overlong sentences, passive voice, and excessive adverb use.

Hemingway also awards a readability score, based upon US educational grades. To reach the largest audience, grade 9 or lower is considered ideal. It’s exceptionally easy to use — just copy and paste your text into the online app and hit return.

Best of all — it’s free! The app was created by Ben and Adam Long in emulation of their favourite writer. Although there’s a $20 version including PDF exports, offline usability and instant publish features, the free version is still immensely useful.

That said, a perfectly optimized Hemingway piece might feel too simplistic for some purposes, such as annual reports, white papers, opinion pieces and other types of writing where personal style carries more weight than raw readability.

12. Chatfuel (for chatbots)


Vital AI assistants or irritating nuisance — whatever you think of chatbots, they are here to stay. Of course, a chatbot’s usefulness depends upon how you build it, which is where Chatfuel comes in. Rather than buying an off-the-shelf solution, the platform allows you to create a bespoke virtual personality yourself, using an intuitive drag and drop interface.

Whether you’re looking to replace a mundane FAQ page or drive potential leads down the funnel by offering discount codes, Chatfuel’s bots are remarkably good at interpreting even misspelt or non-grammatical responses. The AI here is doing a lot of sophisticated linguistic processing and it can easily spot keywords which trigger appropriate and helpful responses.

They’re an official partner with Meta (formerly Facebook), which should provide some reassurance that their AI is top-flight.

13. Grammarly (for content editing)


Like Hemingway, Grammarly will also analyze your content for ways in which it can be improved. Unlike Hemingway, it doesn’t make so many assumptions about style, and focuses its attention instead on traditional rules of syntax and grammar.

One great feature is that you can use Grammarly whilst working in many different apps, including Gmail, Word, Twitter, Facebook and more. Its AI will highlight errors and suggest corrections, which you are free to adopt or ignore. Going beyond mere grammar and punctuation, Grammarly can spot redundant words, inconsistencies in style and offer word choice alternatives.

It works by highlighting and color-coding errors or potential improvements (similar to Hemingway) and has been featured in such august publications as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and Forbes.

14. Albert.ai (for digital advertising)


Advertising is inherently hit-and-miss, or at least it was prior to the dawn of AI. Albert personalizes and optimizes ad content at scale, across social media and paid search platforms, including Facebook, YouTube, Google Ads, Bing and more. Albert call their methodology “data-powered creativity”, and founder Om Shani believes in using AI and automation to free up human creatives to make campaigns that connect on a human level.

Albert.ai functions as a laboratory for testing and tweaking campaigns to take advantage of unseen channel opportunities, unthought of demographics or new markets. It helps makes ad campaigns more relevant and lest wasteful.

Albert’s adopters include Crabtree & Evelyn, Telenor, and Harley Davidson. The latter enjoyed a five-fold swell in site traffic and an enormous 2,930% increase in leads per month.

15. Headlime (for landing pages)


Landing page copy is vital — it’s the storefront of the digital realm. Headlime is an AI-powered content-writing system designed to perfect the art of the landing page.

Powered by the deep learning abilities of GPT-3 from OpenAI, Headlime uses machine learning to help predict and complete text you type, potentially saving significant time. It suggests high performing subject lines, optimizes word count, and can write copy in multiple tones and languages.

Like Jasper, it can write blog content, but it’s integrated with a simple landing page builder so you don’t have to copy-paste constantly. Most importantly, it’s constantly focused on the task at hand — optimizing time on page and conversions. With over 1,700 copy templates and 11 languages, you could have a global landing page up and running in no time.

16. Userbot.ai (for conversation management)


At first Userbot might seem like just another chatbot but it’s much cleverer than that. When Userbot can’t parse a customer’s query, it hands over to a human operator but continues to monitor and learn from the rest of the conversation. Userbot then uses what it learns to improve and add the new user query to its repertoire.

Over time, therefore, Userbot should become more and more intuitive and effective, although you may still have to reply on human operators a fair bit when you first implement it. I tried it with the question “who are your top clients?” and it was unable to provide a meaningful response. For the record, they include Aboca, SSG, and Vivactis Group.

The system provides useful customer data, which you can use to monitor the effectiveness of your sales team or customer support department (it also integrates with many popular CRM platforms).

17. Browse AI (for scraping web pages)

Browse AI

Competitive Intelligence (CI) is one of the most powerful weapons in the digital marketer’s armory. It lets you to assess competitor brands and spot new trends, pricing strategies, reviews, and product launches. To do CI at scale, you need to use data scraping, employing algorithms (aka “spiders” or bots) which crawl competitor sites and extract useful data.

Browse AI allows you to quickly train a bot to source data for you, automatically filling in a spreadsheet with everything you need. You might get it to look for one- or two-star reviews of competitor products in order to spot possible product improvements, or check the current price of similar products on ecommerce sites, for instance.

Browse’s creators say their AI can mimic human behavior to fool Captcha and other bot-spotting protections. The product is used by over 2500 companies including Adobe, Amazon, Salesforce, and HubSpot.

18. Algolia (for search and recommendation APIs)


Search fields can either prove really helpful or endlessly frustrating. Rather than plug-in a “powered by Google” field, why not create a bespoke search facility of your own?

This is what Algolia enables, proving especially popular with entertainment companies or ecommerce firms with large inventories. The less time visitors have to spend fruitlessly scanning your catalogue the more likely they are to buy from you.

Create your own search filter to enable your customers to find exactly what they want at lightning speed. Algolia is already incorporated into the sales portals of Staples, Gymshark, NBCUniversal, Decathlon, Lacoste, and many more.

19. PhotoRoom (for removing image backgrounds)

PhotoRoom app

Here’s a neat (and free) specialist tool — it selectively removes the background of any photo, leaving the human subject highlighted on a transparent background you can incorporate into other graphics. I tried it with several photos of my own and it worked beautifully.

This is a design tool which uses AI and machine learning to identify the subject of a portrait and separate it from the background. While it might previously have taken a designer ten minutes to patiently define the outline of an image, PhotoRoom does it in seconds. You can also drop in a colored background of your choice.

It’s an absolute blessing for anyone tasked with creating a “meet the team” page or creating an avatar to use in multiple locations. There’s a premium batch version, and an app for mobile users.

20. Reply.io’s AI Sales Email Assistant (for email replies)

Reply.io AI sales email assistant

Constructing standard email responses are another marketing task which can quickly become repetitive and labor-intensive. Reply.io’s AI Sales Email Assistant aims to remove much of that drudgery. But it also has many different use cases, describing itself as a “sales engagement platform.”

While the conversion rate for email marketing campaigns may be a lowly 1.22%, that can translate to a lot of promising leads when you scale up. To make the most of this technique, which can be fully automated, you need an AI-powered email marketing tool such as Reply.io.

Build cold email drip campaigns across multiple channels and Reply will automate the rest, applying AI-powered response scoring to help identify leads which hold potential. There are a host of CRM integrations and predictive analytics tools to track the progress of your campaigns.

21. Brand24 (for media monitoring)


If you want to find out how your brand is being mentioned all over the net where do you start? Brand24 scours news sites, social media, blogs, forums, video, and other locations to aggregate mentions. It then applies sentiment analysis to identify topics of conversation and the underlying emotions of reviewers and users.

You can respond quickly to criticism and intervene with customer support issues, improving customer retention and potentially spotting product and service flaws before they become crises. Much more efficiently than a Google keyword search, Brand24 will highlight problematic mentions and great reviews, weeding out irrelevancies.

There’s a great hashtag trend-spotting feature and good customer support including blogs and masterclasses to sharpen your marketing strategy and customer service skills. Clients include Uber, Stanford University, and Intel.

22. Influencity (for influencer marketing)

Influencity for influencer marketing

The use of influencers in social media marketing has been a major trend in recent years and isn’t showing signs of slowing. Whether its hauls, product reviews, sponsorship or traditional advertising, social media influencers are big business for brands, especially those aimed at niche or younger demographics.

Influencity bills itself as the “most complete influencer marketing platform” on the market, and it’s used by such giants as WPP, Kellogg’s and Samsung. It helps brands assess and contact influencers, collaborate on campaigns and then track their effectiveness.

All the major social media platforms are covered. There are plenty of stats and the ability to work at scale across multiple brands, making this a great agency solution.

AI-powered marketing is here to stay

Given the many benefits that AI algorithms can provide — scalability, reach, efficiency, cost savings, decision making, analytic power, better customer experience, and more — it’s clear that we are still only at the dawn of this AI technology revolution. Marketers have more exciting tools at their fingertips than ever before, allowing the tiniest startup to compete for global success alongside the most established brands.

Many of the above tools have freemium versions available, so be open-minded, give them a try, and they may become your best friend for future marketing efforts.
