Revolutionising marketing sales with AI text-to-video generators: Everything you need to know

May 12, 2023 Written by Abby Kury

Like it or not, AI is here to stay AND change the marketing game for good. With the emergence of AI tools such as Midjourney and the current hot commodity that is ChatGPT, there are so many ways brands and businesses can leverage AI in stepping up their marketing playbook.

In our previous article, we covered how the AI-powered chatbot can be used to boost UX design. Today, we’re taking the topic up a notch by exploring other forms of AI tools such as text-to-video generators that amplify your content marketing game.

What is a text-to-video AI generator?

Simply put, text-to-video AI generators are AI tools that allow users to create videos from scratch by inputting text-based instructions on the tool, which is then processed by the AI into developing video content.

These tools typically come with ready templates and visual elements that you can then add further customisation and generate a video from.

Opportunities for marketers

As made known by various studies, the human mind retains 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to reading a piece of text. With more and more text-to-video AI generators penetrating the market, there are solid opportunities here for marketers to leverage these tools when it comes to content marketing.

Here’s a quick look at how this is so and how it can help you – a business owner, a brand manager or an agency – do things more efficiently:

  1. Create video content quickly

Platforms like InVideo are highly popular as it provides all the elements a marketer needs to put together a quick video.

From templates to royalty-free music, there is definitely room for you to play and explore here.

  1. Use more video content across your social media channels

The ability to create videos quickly will enable you to include more dynamic content on your social media channels, which are well suited for the type of content consumption favoured by the target audience.

  1. Educate and explain your product or services dynamically

The good part about video content is that it provides not just a visual cue to a piece of content, but also helps put forth a more robust and cohesive story-telling that can guide an audience from one end to another in a much clearer way.

However, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine…

Noting some of the opportunities above, much like how AI chatbots still have such long ways to go before they can actually serve to replace human workers, do not mistake text-to-video AI generators as your virtual video graphics designer.

Some obvious gaps you need to be mindful of when using these text-to-video AI generators are:

  1. Lack of personalisation

Most, if not all of the tools provide a quick way to create video content by offering ready templates and elements for you to just piece together. This means that nothing is custom-made for your brand. Every single element provided are used by thousands of other brands as well for their content – making your content’s branding generic.

  1. Inaccuracy in AI interpretation

As you’re required to input textual briefs for the AI to then process and develop content from, much like its predecessors ChatGPT or even Google’s Bard, the AI isn’t always accurate.

From factual errors to unverified sources of information, you still need an expert to oversee the usage and creations coming off of these tools. If you are not a graphics design expert yourself, you may easily miss fine details or design elements (like minor differences in colour hues) that affect your overall content quality.

  1. Text-to-video AI generators are not free

Don’t be mistaken, these tools do come with a cost! While there are basic features and options made available, much like any other tool, you truly have to fork out quite a fair bit in order to access the goods.

Conclusion: Are these tools worth trying? Of course, but here’s something to bear in mind…

When utilised strategically, text-to-video AI generators can definitely help you with content marketing in the short term.

However, while they are undoubtedly going to be key tools for marketers, it doesn’t eliminate the need for human expertise and you may find it unsustainable as you scale your brand.

While text-to-video AI generators offer a quick and efficient solution for content creation, they lack the creativity and critical thinking skills that humans possess. These machines may be able to generate videos, but they cannot match the unique perspectives and emotions that come with human storytelling.

Furthermore, as your brand grows and your content requirements become more complex, relying solely on AI-generated videos may not be sustainable in the long run. In addition, text-to-video AI generators are limited by the quality of the data they are trained on.

If the training data is biased or incomplete, the AI-generated videos may perpetuate harmful stereotypes or inaccuracies that can harm your brand reputation. Human expertise is necessary to ensure that the content being produced is ethical and aligned with your brand values.

Ultimately, while text-to-video AI generators can certainly be helpful in the short term, they should be viewed as a tool to supplement human creativity and expertise, rather than a replacement.

The best content marketing strategies are those that blend the power of technology with the unique perspectives and insights that only humans can bring to the table.
