This report shows we are in a new era of AI-driven marketing, and understanding customer perceptions of AI is now essential for marketers looking to enhance the consumer experience and increase customer lifetime value (CLV).
AI-driven personalization had 51% percent of respondents noting it was an overall positive experience. Among this group, 27% find it “very positive” because it significantly enhances their shopping experience. Even among those who view AI personalization as “somewhat positive,” its helpfulness is recognized despite occasional inaccuracies. A quarter of respondents remained indifferent, while 24% expressed negative sentiments, with 13% finding it intrusive and 11% preferring brands not to use AI.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of consumers claimed they can detect when AI is used in marketing campaigns, highlighting the need for transparent AI integration. Instead of concealing AI’s role, retailers can build further trust with their customers’ acceptance of AI by openly incorporating it into their strategies.
