Generative AI is a remarkable technology that employs artificial intelligence to produce images, designs, or content. When it comes to product imagery, generative AI can automatically generate visuals, often utilizing templates or patterns, without requiring direct involvement from human designers.

However, despite its technological brilliance, AI still falls short of the creative prowess that agencies like Outshinery possess when it comes to brand marketing. In this article, we will delve into why Outshinery serves as a compelling alternative to generative AI in the realm of brand marketing.

Tap into boundless creativity

Considering that alcoholic beverage marketing is a specialized niche, it requires a creative approach that can showcase your brand's unique selling proposition. Generative AI can only generate imagery based on the data fed into it. However, Outshinery's in-house creative team utilizes a unique perspective to create visually creative content specific to your brand and product, ensuring that your brand identity stands out from the crowd. 

And did you know that images created with generative AI can’t feature people? Our team works with skilled photographers and professional models so that you can show your drinks being enjoyed by a diverse population in a range of settings. Outshinery has thousands of different Lifestyle Images and many different solutions for depicting your portfolio in exactly the right way, no matter where you show off your images.

No compromising attention to detail

Outshinery's meticulous attention to detail ensures that your product imagery is flawless. We mean absolutely perfect—liquid color, label detail, closure style—down to every tiny bit. This is because the technology we use is totally current and better than consumer-grade. We work in a professional realm to deliver looks that pack the most progressive quality.

Get a streamlined process

Creating a streamlined marketing campaign is important in today's marketing landscape. Outshinery has a well-structured system in place that makes our process highly efficient and results-driven.

These are all vital for a comprehensive marketing strategy for your brand. Imagine trusting generative AI, which creates images based on data models rather than your product, to create all of these elements with the quality that customers expect from your brand.

Generative AI has drawbacks

Don’t get us wrong. We love working with generative AI. It’s a cool slice of tech that promises to make life easier. We’ve even written about how today’s top tools can be prompted to help you reach our audience in unique ways. However, relying on generative AI to create the visuals you use to promote your wine brand can have some costly drawbacks. As a highly regulated product, and alcohol brands must adhere to strict branding guidelines and image standards. Relying solely on AI to produce marketing materials can result in brand image inconsistency and misrepresentation.

Furthermore, AI-generated images may lack the emotional and sensory appeal that consumers crave from alcohol advertisements. By utilizing human creativity and expertise, wine brands can produce authentic and visually stunning marketing content that resonates with their target audience, ultimately leading to higher brand loyalty and sales.

In conclusion

Marketing is a crucial aspect of any brand's success, and creating visually attractive imagery is central to that. Although generative AI may seem like a cheaper solution, it does not provide the customization or nuanced approach that Outshinery offers (and that your product deserves).
