In recent years, artificial intelligence has become increasingly valuable to email marketers.

Boosting email marketing’s return on investment (ROI) is a challenge for some businesses. Therefore, recent studies indicate that they will be adopting Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the near future.

Most marketers (69%) still only consider their email marketing strategy to be “somewhat successful,” according to data from the recently published “Email Marketing: Strategies, Tactics & Trends” report by Ascend2. Challenges have arisen for email marketers most often in the areas of increasing engagement (63%), measuring performance/ROI (44%), and developing an overarching strategy (38%).

As a result, more and more professionals in the field are beginning to recognize AI’s potential in the realm of email marketing. Three-quarters of respondents thought it might be helpful for email retargeting, and the same percentage thought it might be useful for creating customized newsletters. About a third of the population thinks it could help them learn more about their customers’ journeys through various stages of their lives.
