How AI Can Boost Your Campground’s Marketing Content

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just science fiction; it's revolutionizing various industries, and campground marketing is no exception. But with so much buzz surrounding it, campground owners might wonder: what exactly is AI, and how can it help me market my property? 

Imagine AI as a knowledgeable digital assistant, ready to support your marketing efforts using data from all over the internet. Here's how you can leverage AI to create compelling content for your outdoor property’s emails, blogs, and social media posts: 


Embracing the Learning Curve 

Using AI for the first time can be intimidating, but remember: the quality of the output depends on the quality of the input. Start by defining goals and target audiences for your content. Are you trying to increase occupancy during your slow months? Do you want to spread the world about the unique features of your property in an area with several camping options? Are you trying to reach long-term stay campers? Once you have this roadmap, explore different AI tools and prompts to find the perfect fit. 


The Ever-Expanding AI Toolbox 

New AI tools are emerging constantly so it can be difficult to figure out which ones to use. According to a McKinsey study, the number of AI tools used by organizations doubled between 2022 and 2023. The AI industry is blowing up and the number of tools out there is growing rapidly. Here are two platforms we've tested that can be valuable assets for your campground marketing efforts: 

  1. General AI chatbots: Google Bard AI and ChatGPT answer your general questions on various topics, offering excellent starting points for content like emails and statistics. They’re marketing budget friendly too - you can currently access these programs by signing up for a free account. 
  2. Marketing-specific AI: and writesonic are designed explicitly for crafting marketing content that aims to optimize SEO and prospecting. 


AI Best Practices 

While AI is a powerful tool, it's not a replacement for the human touch. Here are some best practices to ensure you use AI effectively: 

  1. Define your goals and audience: Before you start creating any marketing content with AI, it's important to define your goals and audience. What do you want to achieve with your content? Who are you trying to reach? Once you know your goals and audience, you can choose the AI tools and techniques that will be most effective. 
  2. Brainstorming and Ideation: Use AI platforms to spark new ideas for blog posts, email subject lines, and social media content. For instance, AI can generate keyword lists related to your park or to come up with attention-grabbing and creative ways to phrase your ideas. 
  3. Generate Draft Content: Once you have some ideas for your content, you can use AI to generate draft copy. For example, you can use AI to generate a full blog post outline on the latest upgrades to your property or to write a draft of an email or social media post. 
  4. Review and Edit AI-generated Content: It's important to review and edit AI-generated content before you publish it. AI can sometimes generate content that is grammatically incorrect or that just doesn't make sense. It's also important to make sure that the content you publish is consistent with your brand voice and style. 
  5. Track and Measure Your Results: Once you've published your AI-generated content, it's important to track and measure your results. This data will help you see what's working and what's not, so you can adjust your strategy accordingly.  


Here are some additional tips for using AI to help create marketing content: 

  • Don't Stifle Creativity: AI can be a great tool for helping you create marketing content, but it's important to remember that it's a tool, not a replacement for human creativity. If you don’t like the way something sounds – change it! This is your business and your brand. 
  • Augment and Streamline Existing Workflows: Leverage AI to generate drafts that you can then edit and polish, optimizing workflows that might be underperforming.  
  • Be Transparent: If you're using AI to generate marketing content, it's important to be upfront with your audience. This will help to build trust with your readers and avoid any potential negativity. (AI helped improve this blog!)
