We are also able to share those insights with our clients so that they can intelligently plan their own content strategies.

ASAE sees innovation as the solution to an original program, product, service, or process that adds value. It can be incremental or radical, but it comes down to this: a new idea that is successfully implemented. In a world that seems to be evolving at the speed of light, continuous innovation seems essential for any association that expects to remain relevant. ASAE is committed to leading that effort as a catalyst, role model, and incubator.

The AI learned the reader’s behaviors and used those insights to automatically generate a relevant subject line. It then fed them the articles they are most interested in reading.

ASAE saw a dramatic increase in open and click rates, as well as a better understanding of their members. In addition to the automated personalization, the ASAE staff were able to easily access these behavioral insights on the platform. Trending topics, sources, and articles were all readily available on the platform in real-time. The results ASAE got by using were not only measurable, but they also made the process easier – and smarter, too.
