Creating a Custom AI Marketing Assistant

Having immediate access to data can make or break your campaign’s success. 

Imagine being equipped with an expert consultant in Google Ads, Search Engine Optimization, Programmatic Advertising, or LinkedIn Campaigns. 

I have personally improved my own consulting by building AI assistants that draw from expert resources for each of these domains. This gives me access to detailed knowledge, including resources like Google’s documentation right at my fingertips. Additionally, I’ve used AI marketing assistants to create competitor researcher to better understand our competition.

In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of constructing a unique AI partner using TeamAI’s datastores and assistants. We’ll also explore the myriad of benefits this tool can bring to your marketing strategy.

Why Build a Custom AI Marketing Assistant

Generative AI won’t do the work for your marketing team, but it will give them superhuman abilities when it comes to finding new information or boosting overall effectiveness. Let’s look at a few benefits:

  • Access to Expert Knowledge: A custom AI assistant serves as a comprehensive library of knowledge. It has the advantage of accessing a wide, accurate, and current database of information that you’ve meticulously chosen. This ensures that every response it provides is well-informed, precise, and particularly relevant to your marketing 
  • Cost-Effective: An AI consultant is a cost-effective solution that offers significant value and ROI. The initial cost of setting up will likely be offset by the increased efficiency, improved marketing outcomes, and time savings it provides. This can improve your knowledge without needing to onboard a new expert for each channel.

Now, let’s dive into creating your personal AI marketing assistant:

Step 1: Use Datastores to Access Expert Knowledge

The fundamental step in creating your AI assistant is to compile a comprehensive knowledge base that you can pull from when chatting with your assistant.

 This could include brand guidelines, product brochures and whitepapers, product specs, best practice information from the likes of Google or Meta, or any internal resources you can think of.

This is achieved by establishing a datastore in TeamAI, which is a compiled collection of text resources that you’ve validated for accuracy and relevance to your marketing topics.

Creating a Datastore to Chat with Your Marketing Docs

  • Resource Identification: Kickstart the process by identifying resources that will be beneficial for your marketing team. This could include marketing strategies from authoritative sources, insightful blog posts, or detailed transcripts from YouTube on marketing training.
  • Datastore Creation: In TeamAI, navigate to the datastore section and create a new datastore. Populate it with the resources you’ve gathered. For web pages, merely copy and paste the URLs, separating each with a comma. Connect to your Google Drive to swiftly import documents, or simply drag and drop PDFs and files into the TeamAI interface.
  • Engaging with Your Documents: Now, within any chat, you can select your documents and start interacting with them. This pulls your information into the chat!

With a bit more technical knowledge you can take this to the next level by integrating your own custom plugins. Custom Plugins allow you to pull in your databases of customer data, company info, or most API endpoints you can think of.

Once your Datastore is set up, the next step is to craft an assistant that will act as your bespoke marketing consultant.

How to Create Your AI Marketing Assistant:

  1. Category Choice: Visit the assistant creation page and select a relevant category, such as marketing consultation. If your specific category isn’t available, create a new one.
  2. Assistant Setup: Assign a title and description for your assistant. This will be visible in the chat when you engage with the assistant.
  3. Instruction Development: A key step where you direct the assistant on how you want it to behave to meet your needs. For instance, you may want your assistant to always respond with a bullet list of Product USPs, or you might want it to always include a list of potential questions for a client to maintain the conversation flow.
  4. Model Choice: Depending on your need for speed or depth of response, choose an appropriate AI model. Options include GPT-4 Turbo for extensive datasets or faster models like GPT-3.5 for quicker, but possibly less comprehensive, responses.
  5. Datastore Linking: Connect your newly created datastore to the assistant. This enables the assistant to access your curated resources, allowing it to deliver informed responses.
  6. Assistant Verification: Before deploying it in real-world scenarios, test the assistant with various questions to ensure it produces accurate and useful information.
