Microsoft is making waves again for digital advertising and search by rolling out some exciting new AI-driven features. These announcements came during Microsoft’s Surface and Copilot event in New York. They are kicking it up a notch by introducing generative AI tools designed to create more interactive and efficient experiences for advertisers. The new tools in the spotlight are Conversational Ad experiences, Ads for Chat API, and Copilot. But what do these changes mean for you, and how can they transform your digital marketing strategies?
Microsoft has partnered with Snapchat and Axel Springer to launch its new product, Ads for Chat API. This tool helps create a seamless advertising experience that feels natural to the content flow. For instance, Snapchat’s My AI chatbot, used by over 150 million people globally, uses this tech to offer Sponsored Links in a way that doesn’t interrupt the user experience. Axel Springer’s Hey_ product on BILD.de also leverages this API, allowing advertisers to connect with an impressive 17 million daily BILD.de users. Microsoft plans to keep refining the Ads for Chat API, based on advertiser and partner feedback and aims to bring in more partners in the future.
One of the most interesting announcements is the launch of Compare and Decide Ads. These ads are designed to work well with the Bing Chat experience and give online shoppers a chance to compare different products based on criteria that matter most to them. These new ads will work across various sectors with relevant feed data, like retail, travel, and auto. Slated for a closed beta launch in early 2024, Compare and Decide Ads offer a fresh and effective approach to consumer engagement.
Copilot is another new fascinating tool, specifically designed for advertisers and agencies looking to generate compelling ad content. It starts by describing the type of content you want, whether it’s an image, headline, or description, and Copilot will come up with suggestions. This new tool is currently being tested with a small group of advertisers, but Microsoft plans to bring it to open beta in the coming months.
AI can streamline many cumbersome tasks, such as data analysis, customer segmentation, and now, even content generation. These tools can take your advertising strategies to a whole new level by creating more personalized and effective campaigns. Instead of guessing what might appeal to your audience, these AI tools give you data-backed recommendations that can improve engagement and ultimately, ROI.
