🦾How You Can Leverage:

You might have no clue what's happening before you hit that buy button. 🤑

(Hint: There’s a lot of AI.)

Whether you're spending your hard-earned cash online or trying to get an e-commerce side hustle off the ground, you've gotta understand the role AI plays when buying and selling online. 

Today, we had the help of an industry expert in the e-commerce space. 

Jo Lambadjieva joined Everyday AI to talk about how AI is impacting the ecomm space. Jo is the Founder and CEO of Amazing Wave, an agency that helps e-commerce shops grow with AI. 

So what kind of AI is going on before you click that buy button? 

A lot. 

The e-commerce industry is using Generative AI in just about every step of the process, from product development and customer persona research to tech giants changing the way products are sold online. 

Whether you’re selling things online or just clicking that ‘buy’ button, AI has already changed the entire process. 

And it’s gonna get even crazier. 

Here’s the 1-2-3 treatment on what you need to know about today’s episode. 👇

1 – Keyword search is going buh-bye 👋

Whether you’re selling or buying online, it’s always been a keyword game.

If you’re selling an adjustable standing desk converter for laptops, you’d want to rank for “Adjustable standing desk converter for laptops.”

And if you’re buying said converter (wait… we want that, too!) you’d be searching for something like, “Adjustable standing desk converter for laptops.”

That keyword game has already started to change, Jo said. 

The two online shopping tech titans (Amazon and Google) have already started to roll-out AI based chat shopping in lieu of traditional keyword search. 

Try this: 
Google has started testing SGE in its shopping experience, or Search Generative Experience.

Amazon has started testing its Amazon Rufus AI chatbot. In short, consumers will more or less be chatting with AI assistants to find their products, Jo said. Not searching by keyword.

Go dive into this article on how AI is changing the way online transactions will be done. 

2 – AI is everywhere in ecomm 🛍

That product image that convinced you to buy? 

Probably AI. 

That sparkling text that convinced you to add to cart? 

Probably AI. 

Even the product that’s got your eye? 

Very well coulda been developed and brought to market with AI. 

Jo gave us the rundown of how AI is already used in just about every aspect of the e-commerce process. 

Try this:
Wanna see how this is done live?

A while back, we had Charles Chakkalo on to talk about e-commerce. In that show, Charles showed us in real time how he uses AI for everything from generating images to creating product descriptions. 

3 – The human touch still sells 🙋

Point #2 above is kinda cool and also kinda dangerous.

If you’re an e-commerce shop owner relying on AI TOO much, you might end up with product listings like this. 

Or, you might have a product or service that feels more AI than human. Jo suggested that e-commerce owners find the balance.

AI can still be used every step of the way, she said, but too much AI + automation can lead to your product collecting dust on the digital shelf. 

Try this:
How can you strike a balance?

This article shows you some tangible ways to leverage AI for e-commerce while still keeping the human connection that sells.
