Two decades ago, receiving an electronic mail was a complete novelty, while physical letters were the norm. Fast forward to today, and our online inboxes are completely flooded with marketing emails, often surpassing 10 to 20 per day. Just think about your own inbox and how many marketing emails you receive. 

The battle for attention in the inbox has intensified, posing a challenge for marketers and businesses to ensure their emails stand out amidst the crowd. But how can you make sure your emails are always interesting to your recipients?

In this blog post, we delve into the evolution of email marketing and explore the challenges marketers face in engaging their audience. We'll discuss the traditional methods of email marketing, the shortcomings they present, and introduce a groundbreaking solution to revolutionize your email campaigns.

The problem with Email marketing: 

Traditionally, email marketing has been conducted on the marketer's terms rather than the recipient's. 

What does this mean?

  • Mass newsletters are often sent without considering individual interests, leading to low engagement and high unsubscribe rates. 
  • This one-size-fits-all approach neglects the vast array of potential products that could drive significant profits. Because what suits one customer may not suit another.
  • However, marketers are often faced with limited options due to inadequate tools, which results in either generic emails, time-consuming manual customization, or complex automated workflows.

What is the solution?

Imagine having a robotic sales assistant who predicts precisely what products to showcase in your emails without any training required.
