Motivation and Goals

Why did we start Variant Marketing?

Our Observation:

Most of the work of any serious Digital Marketer consists in analyzing data from the accounts he is managing, and make strategic decisions based on these data. But the growing amount of data makes this task more and more difficult. Most of the time, the analysis is not deep enough, because it takes too much time to go through all the available data, and not precise enough, because it is impossible for a human to find the patterns and correlations that are hidden in this large amount of data.

Our Projection:

The recent collision of Data Science and Web Marketing has now only compounded this problem. With the increase of data, the chance of making wrong DM choices has also increased. The endless possibilities of data has now rendered itself as either largely going underutilised or overlooked. It soon will be impossible for a humans to deal with these challenges and taking valuable action on data will ever increasingly become harder.

Our Hypothesis:

With even more data to come in the future, Digital marketers will need help from AI to be competitive in their Digital Marketing accounts. We believe the winners will be those who fully master their data in a way that brings value and efficiencies to their bottom line.

Our Goal:

Our main goals is to design and build the smartest SEM Robots to excel in a new Web Marketing paradigm. They will dedicate 100% of their time to optimizing accounts, not 1 hour per week as conventionally practiced today, but 24 hours a day / 7 days per week.
