How AI Will Boost Email Marketing In 2019
Artificial Intelligence is one of the big technological developments. New ways to incorporate the technology into marketing are being developed and how email marketing can benefit is going to be specifically interesting. The results from email marketing being influenced by AI can be outstanding, and for little investment can really help to boost your revenues from campaigns.
Here are some of the ways that AI will boost email marketing and how you can incorporate it into your marketing campaigns.
Personalisation is a standard way to increase conversions within an email. However, customers are now becoming more aware of how personalisation within large email marketing campaigns can be done. Therefore, just using a name on a campaign is becoming less effective.
Artificial Intelligence is going to change that. It will be able to select certain behaviours that it can target to deliver more relevant content to audiences. This will help to improve open rates and conversions from campaigns. This can all be done automatically and generate a better conversion rate and higher levels of profits for your campaigns.
Some of the behaviours that AI might be able to pick up is consumer trends, behaviours and any common purchases made together. Using this, your business can advertise the relevant products to specific customers.
Another benefit of this is that it can reduce the unsubscribe rate for your mailing list. Therefore, over the long term, your mailing list will become even more valuable.
2. Set Time To Proper Interaction Periods
Artificial Intelligence is one of the best ways you can ensure that your messages are received by the audience when they’re more receptive to reading your emails. When you can tailor messages to be delivered when your audience are more likely to open and read your emails. This will increase the number of sales that are made via campaigns.
The challenge is that different audiences will open emails at different times. Business leaders for instance are more likely to open emails during the working day, while those shopping for kids clothing are often shopping Sunday through to Monday. But this isn’t uniform. Different members of your audience have unique behaviours and artificial intelligence will be able to determine those behaviours to help.
3. Reduce Abandoned Carts
Nearly 70% of all people abandon their carts on your store. There are numerous reasons for this, including too high shipping costs, unexpected taxes, just researching purchases and being interrupted by every day distractions. Some of these can’t be avoided, but that doesn’t mean you’ve lost the sale.
Instead, you can use artificial intelligence to contact those who’ve left an email address to remind them about the purchase. At the same time, it can identify what the likely reason for the missed order was. For instance, if they abandoned on the delivery options, then the system might be able to offer them a deal to get better shipping rates.
This kind of option allows you to claim back some of the abandoned carts. This will increase revenues and help you to achieve better profitability. In addition, it allows you to continue keeping in contact with audiences that need a reminder to visit your store for the latest deals/offers.
4. Target The Right People With Offers
When you have a new offer, you can often end up sending it to your whole mailing list. This can be wasted. When selling shoes for instance, some people will only want one type of shoes. Artificial intelligence will be able to take your deal promotion to the next level by identifying those who are more likely to be interested.
This can have massive implications for your store. Firstly, it reduces the number of emails in campaigns, which reduces campaign costs. In addition, you can be sure that your audience are going to be happy with the relevant communications and not frustrated that you’ve sent them generic emails.
Artificial intelligence is going to change the way that you can market to your audience. It will have numerous functions that can help you produce campaigns in little to no time. This will save you countless hours in marketing that can be spent doing work you prefer to be doing and growing your business.
