Chat GPT is all the hype right now. But to get to where it is right now, AI has faced some hiccups along the way. Experimenting with “conversational understanding,” Microsoft unveiled its AI Twitter chatbot called ‘Tay’ in 2016. Tay was supposed to chat with people and get smarter the more they engaged and conversed. However, within 24 hours of its launch, Tay began to make racist, sexist, and offensive remarks.
This incident illustrates the potential for AI to learn and repeat harmful biases present in the data it’s trained on. Therefore, realizing the importance of human intervention to monitor and control. Still, think your marketing automation can run on autopilot? Think again...
Optimize Your Marketing Automation: The Key to a Better ROI 💰
Automation is a great way to tackle repetitive marketing processes, but the general set-it and forget-it mindset toward your marketing strategy can cause more harm than good. Over time, as your users and their preferences evolve, so should your strategy and approach. Hence, it's beneficial to constantly experiment and optimize your automation to garner maximum ROI.
A/B Split within the Journey Designer allows you to identify different paths for a user in the workflow, find the best-performing branch and optimize your strategy accordingly! Here are some best practices to consider:
1. Bifurcate your audience across different engagement channels to understand which performs better, such as response to Push notifications versus SMS, and
2. Test between different send times for your campaigns to understand the optimum time to get maximum responses, such as response to running a cart abandonment campaign after a wait time of 15 mins versus 5 hours.

1. Create a live segment or include it as an additional filter to existing segments to send targeted campaigns to your users.
