At Affogato, we're harnessing the power of AI to revolutionize digital marketing. Our AI-powered products, including AI Headshots and AI Social Media content, are designed to help individuals and companies create a digital-first presence. But that's not all. We're also using AI to optimize our marketing strategies, particularly in the realm of Facebook Ads.

The Power of Facebook Ads

394 ads created over a 58 day period for launch

Over the course of 89 days, we generated 334 leads based on 26,200 ad combinations, all created and deployed with the help of our AI product. This iterative process allowed us to conduct market research on our target audience, identifying messaging, themes, and products that resonate with them.

Just eight days ago, we identified a niche that's now converting customers at a 3.43 Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) for our AI Headshots product. These leads were generated at a cost of $5.56 each, showcasing the efficiency and effectiveness of our AI-driven approach.

The Problem with Traditional Email Campaigns

Traditionally, email campaigns have been a go-to strategy for marketers. However, they come with their own set of challenges. For one, cold-email campaigns often result in a high number of unsubscribes. Worse still, they can lead to negative responses, which can be both hurtful and detrimental to our performance.

The Solution: AI-Powered Campaigns

To overcome these challenges, we've been experimenting with AI-powered campaigns. By leveraging the power of AI, we've been able to create more personalized and effective campaigns.

We've been testing this approach with Facebook ads, using the same talking points, messaging, and angles that have proven successful in this platform. After testing against an audience of 218,295 impressions, we've obtained statistically significant results that we can now apply to our email campaigns.

Here are some of the ad copies we're planning to test:

  • "Your secret is safe with us. AI Headshots may make you appear better than normal."
  • "Your Clients will LOVE the way you look."
  • "Professional Photography - Captured Anywhere with AI."
  • "Forget Scheduling Photographers."

Introducing a New Approach to Email Marketing

We are taking the messaging that works in Facebook ads and applying it to Apollo outreach

While email marketing remains a powerful tool, we're introducing a different approach that preserves your inbox and identifies Product-Market-Fit first in a more accessible and scalable channel: Facebook Ads. This approach, powered by Apollo.io, allows us to expand into email marketing with a solid foundation of market understanding and customer engagement.

Our technology is built to get smarter with each generation of content, and while we don't yet have the results to prove this new approach, we're confident in our process and excited about the potential it holds.

The Future is Here

The use of AI in digital marketing is no longer a thing of the future. It's happening now, and it's revolutionizing the way we reach and engage with our audience. By leveraging AI, we can create more personalized, effective, and engaging campaigns, driving better results for our business.
