The Email Content Generator uses OpenAI and GPT technology to create on-brand content for you to share with your audience. Once you’ve accepted our additional terms for text generation, you’ll see the Prompt settings. Choose your content type, marketing goal, key points, and up to 3 tones.
We’ll generate 3 options at a time that you can choose from based on the content type you’ve selected.
