Post 28444 updated: Research related to AIAD. . .

Thought I'd take some time to put together details that have appeared in Company related information, PR's and disclosures that I have come across over the last 18 months as part of my due diligence concerning AIAD. A small portion, at the beginning, is relative to occurrences during the week of Oct. 25th in association with Parscale Strategy which was not part of the August 1st 2017 acquisitions.

One of Cloudcommerce's, (known now as AIAdvertising), subsidiaries is Parscale Digital which merged with Parscale Creative as a result of an acquisition dated August 1st 2017. The total purchase price of $7,945,000, was paid in the form of the issuance of ninety thousand (90,000) shares of the Company's Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. This business acquisition interrelation spawned a new subsidiary named Data Propria which the Company (AIAD) launched on February 1st 2018. The key component related to the new subsidiary was the employment of four former Cambridge Analytica staffers.

Quotes from the Cambridge Analytica Website:

"Communication has changed. Blanket advertising no longer provides viable ROI for every campaign. Big data revolutionized the way organizations identify and locate their best prospects. But data alone isn't enough. Cambridge Analytica is building a future where every individual can have a truly personal relationship with their favorite brands and causes by showing organizations not just where people are, but what they really care about and what drives their behavior."

"At Cambridge Analytica we use data modeling and psychographic profiling (Behavioral Science) to grow audiences, identify key influencers, and connect with people in ways that move them to action. Our unique data sets and unparalleled modeling techniques help organizations across America build better relationships with their target audience across all media platforms."

Sound familiar?

Since the advent of the internet. . . businesses, companies and corporations have accumulated a monumental amount of customer first party data. It's estimated that in the U.S. there are somewhere close to four or five thousand data points on every individual. This degree of digital footprinting is a gold mine leading to significant revenue growth for those that can disseminate and incorporate this information in the most efficient manner. The only problem is the enormous cost to try and develop a method internally to try and accomplish this objective. This is where AIAD comes in:

SWARM was developed based on the concept of first-party data resources which is information directly related to an enterprises customer that comes directly from its own sources. It’s incredibly important when it comes to building customer personas and behavioral profiles. Which eliminates the reliance on the use of browser cookies. The SWARM platform uses AI to manage “personas."

A persona is a proxy for a brand’s target audience. A proxy represents someone who has the same interests, priorities and concerns as the brand’s buyers. Within the brand’s target market, there are several ideal customer profiles, and each ideal customer profile could have a multiple number of personas. Developing these personas is based on extensive research and requires the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning tools.

For brands of all types, artificial intelligence, through the invention on how persona building works will make buyer personas more valuable than ever by developing them to be precisionally accurate and personalized.

SWARMS AI driven platform is capable of collecting and analyzing prospect and customer data on a massive scale; delivering accurate, human-like associations from a vast array of data; fine tuning the digital experience for customers; and continually updating all personas in real time. The entire process is automated and can interface with existing marketing stacks.


A couple AI technologies added to the SWARM tech stack over the last year worth noting that has resulted in further refinement of the SWARM platform:

Pattern89, a leading developer of artificial intelligence solutions for marketers, offers a predictive creative performance platform that allows advertisers to know the performance of ads before the launch of a campaign.

By adding Patter89 to its growing tech stack, AiAdvertising's SWARM will allow the Company’s clients to know why some creative elements work better than others and how to construct media that performs. With the Predict89 layer in place, SWARM will analyze 2,900+ creative dimensions of a client’s ads. It will cross-analyze billions of Facebook advertiser data points, within its proprietary data set.

Also, the addition of the WRENCH.AI customized personalization engine to enhance the Company’s AI-enabled SWARM platform. Adding this critical AI -driven component will allow the Company to speed the development of SWARM to dramatically reduce the cost of advertising.

Using machine learning and artificial intelligence, WRENCH.AI makes it easier for advertisers to harness the power of their data to automate the process of creating personas to optimize marketing and advertising efforts. Allowing to further develop SWARM to integrate with customer relationship management (CRM) tools to translate the data into insights that will help inform the creative direction in order to deliver highly targeted and personalized ads.
