AI Survey Reveals 72% of Marketers Embrace AI Tools Despite Doubts About Accuracy

In a recent survey conducted by Basis Technologies in July 2023, it was found that an impressive 72% of marketers are actively using AI-powered tools at least once a month. Despite harboring doubts about the output and accuracy of these tools, the majority of marketers are leveraging the potential of AI in their work.

The survey, which garnered responses from over 200 professionals across agencies, brands, and publishers, shed light on the current state of AI adoption in the marketing industry. Surprisingly, over half (52%) of the marketers revealed that they are using AI specifically for content creation, even though 70% of them admitted that AI-generated content falls short compared to content produced by human hands.

Generative AI tools are also gaining traction, with 49% of marketers using them at least once a week, and 11% incorporating them into their daily workflow. This highlights a growing interest in leveraging AI’s capabilities to streamline marketing efforts.

Moreover, a staggering 80% of the surveyed marketers expressed confidence that AI will significantly enhance their job efficiency within the next five years. This optimistic outlook contrasts with the opinions of C-Suite and VP-level executives (52%) and entry-to-mid-level employees (34.7%), who are less convinced about the extent of AI’s impact on their work.

Interestingly, concerns over the authenticity of brands using AI-generated content in their marketing or advertising campaigns were raised, with 55% of marketers believing it could be perceived as less genuine by consumers.

The survey also revealed that only 10% of organizations have replaced human tasks with AI solutions over the past year. However, a substantial 48.5% of respondents believe that AI could lead to significant job losses in their industry within the next 3 to 5 years, indicating a mix of excitement and apprehension about AI’s long-term implications on the job market.

Perhaps most strikingly, a vast majority (99.5%) of the marketers surveyed expressed concern over brand safety and misinformation risks associated with AI. This indicates that while AI offers great potential, there are still critical challenges that need to be addressed to ensure responsible and reliable use of this technology in marketing.

As AI continues to reshape the marketing landscape, marketers and organizations must tread carefully, striking a balance between embracing AI’s potential and addressing its limitations and risks.
