In the ever-evolving world of influencer marketing, a new and exciting tool has emerged: AI-generated storyboards. These intelligent systems can revolutionize the way brands and influencers collaborate, allowing for more efficient and effective campaigns. Follow along as we dive into what AI-generated storyboards are and how you can successfully incorporate them into your influencer marketing strategies.
What is AI-generated storyboarding?
AI-generated storyboards on platforms like IZEA Flex allow marketers to use AI to help them visualize their marketing campaigns with storyboards and photo inspiration. AI-generated storyboards bring the text to life by generating corresponding images that can be used to communicate the campaign vision pre-production. Storyboards are essentially sketches to help your team brainstorm and provide artistic direction for your influencer campaign’s visuals.
What are some online tools for creating storyboards?

Benefits of AI-generated storyboarding for influencer marketing
A major benefit of AI storyboards is that they allow your brand to bring your visual inspiration to life while saving on production costs by potentially eliminating costly rounds of edits and revisions. Storyboards allow brands to bring their concepts to life and enhance the creative process.
Agencies can wow potential customers by showcasing their campaign in a one-of-a-kind way, free from generic stock photos or relying on influencer content. Elevate your pitch deck by including pre-selected images or engage clients in a live session with a screen share, allowing them to be an active part of the creative process.
How to use AI storyboards in your influencer marketing campaigns
By using the Storyboards feature in IZEA Flex, your brand can fully harness the power of AI and refresh your influencer marketing campaigns. Here is how to use AI Storyboards to your advantage:
1. Start with a detailed writing prompt
In the A.I. Storyboards module in Flex, enter a specific writing prompt that covers the basis of the content you wish to generate. This should include the subject/contents of the image, any action being taken, and the setting.
2. Choose your style, size, aspect ratio, and model
Flex allows brands to adjust the image style through a variety of different mediums like pencil, charcoal, vector, painting, and freeform. You can change the sizes, aspect ratios, models, and images all through just a few clicks. You can also choose the number of images generated at once. Keep in mind that if you have a particular aesthetic you’d like to achieve in your campaign’s visuals, you can use the Storyboards tool to create example sketches for your team and creators.
3. Add to your prompt
After generating your original image, add more descriptive words to your prompt to fully bring your creativity to life and adjust the Storyboard how you wish. This includes the type of art style, color scheme, and lighting.
Choose whether you want an extreme close-up (ECU), medium close-up (MCU), medium-full shot (MFS), full shot (FS), or extreme long shot (ELS), for example.
Artistic descriptions can be wording such as:
- Sharp focus
- 3D render
- Natural lighting
- Film grain
- Octane render
- The mood of the image
- Oil painting
- Textile art
