  • AI-​generated copy: 34%

Yes, you can use AI to generate personalized copy. A previous SalesFuel blog based on data from Deloitte, found 55.28% of companies using AI do so for content personalization. Make sure that when you edit the AI-​generated copy, it highlights content consumers are most likely to engage with, including:

  • Loyalty program promotions: 84% of consumers are likely to engage with these emails
  • Discounts and coupon codes: 84%
  • Sales promotions and holiday coupons: 80%
  • Offers tailored to each recipient’s interests: 78%

  • Exclusive VIP offers: 75%”

Bonus: Using AI for email copy creation doesn’t just benefit consumers. It saves you and your client a ton of time that can be put toward other marketing efforts. That’s why it’s quickly becoming an effective email marketing strategy.


If your client is still working their way toward hyper-​personalized emails, don’t worry. There are still strategies you can lean on in the meantime. One is email segmentation.

According to Litmus, almost all (over 90%) of email marketers say that segmentation boosts their email performance at least some. You can segment your client’s upcoming emails based on:

  • Demographics: Use this information to send relevant content and offers
  • Geography and time zone: Use this to customize copy language and email send times
  • Purchase history: Use this for inspiration for special offers
  • Email engagement: Use to primarily engage with subscribers who actively interact with your client’s emails
  • Devices and email clients: “Experiment with more or less text-​heavy messages between devices
  • Self-​selected preferences: “Let subscribers opt-​in and out of content for holidays, events, or product categories”

Email segmentation is the simplest way to ensure you’re sending the right messages to the right person at the right time. You don’t need any technical skills to create segments of your audience, either. The only thing you need to decide is what segments you want to create.”
