Enhancing Email Marketing with AI: Elevating Customer Engagement through Better Connections

email marketing AI

In the fast-paced world of ecommerce, successful email marketing is all about making meaningful connections with your customers.

Enter Artificial Intelligence (AI), a game-changing tool that can supercharge your email campaigns.

Embracing AI can significantly enhance your email marketing preparation and delivery, leading to increased customer engagement and stronger connections.

Here are 3 ways we’re using AI with our clients to streamline processes, provide insights, and deliver personalised experiences that resonate with your customers.

  1. Elevate Your Email Preparation
  • Segmentation Perfection: AI can analyse vast amounts of customer data to segment your audience effectively. This segmentation enables you to send highly relevant content that resonates with different customer groups.

Tools such as Iota-ML can even help you find ‘look-a-likes’ of your chosen segments based on previous behaviour and purchase data to expand your segments to the next level out who haven’t taken actions yet but have similar characteristics to those that have.

  • Content Creation Assistance: From subject lines to email body content, AI tools can offer suggestions and improvements based on previous campaign performance, ensuring your message is compelling and impactful.
  • A/B Split Test Idea Generation: Use AI to generate alternative versions of your subject lines, copy, CTA’s and more, based on your audience profile, to accelerate your testing strategy and find what works for your audience.
  1. Elevating Engagement through AI-Driven Delivery
  • Optimal Timing: AI can analyse customer behaviour patterns and historical data to determine the best times to send emails. This can increase the likelihood of your emails being opened and read. – certainly when it comes to trans-continental sends and optimising the timing for different countries.
  • Personalisation Precision: AI-driven personalisation goes beyond using a recipient’s first name. It considers browsing history, purchase behaviour, and preferences to craft emails that truly resonate.
  1. Building Stronger Customer Connections with AI
  • Predictive Recommendations: AI can anticipate customer preferences and suggest products they’re likely to be interested in, based on products people like them have previously browsed/bought, to offer relevant inspiration; increasing cross-selling and upselling opportunities.
  • Behavioural Retargeting: Leveraging AI, you can retarget customers who abandoned their carts by sending tailored follow-up emails, reminding them of the products they left behind – and adding those relevant suggestions, when appropriate in the series.
