A Gardener and a Turtle Walk into a Bar…

Bridget Johnston February 18, 2021

Think about the most random images you can include in your next ad campaign. A gardener, a sea turtle and a nightclub are my examples. 

Including any of these things in your ads could really enhance, or possibly tank, your campaign’s performance. The only way to know which of these decisions will actually help is by using artificial intelligence to project their future performance. 

It’s actually possible to see into the creative future! A.I. has the ability to analyze hundreds of billions of data points every day, and find statistically significant patterns and trends within those data points. Studying these past trends and patterns gives the A.I. the ability to project future performance, even while assessing outlier campaigns and events. 

So how would your random images actually perform? We can find out pretty easily…
