Tips for writing Predictive Content variants

Available on Professional and Enterprise plans.

In this article, we'll share tips and examples that you can use to create your own Predictive Content variants.

Predictive content writing guidelines

Here are some general guidelines to consider when writing variants for predictive content:

  • Place most of your text inside the predictive content block
    For best results with predictive content, put as much text as possible into the block so we can better learn your contacts' preferences.
  • Include a link or clickable call-to-action inside the predictive content block
    This will help us better understand your contacts' preferences so we can continue to send them the right content.
  • Keep paragraphs to three sentences in length
    This will optimize the readability of your content.
  • Keep the content conversational
    And use personalization!
  • Each variant should be a different length 
    This means that one variant will be short and use fewer words and sentences, while another variant will be longer, using more words and sentences. This will help us better learn which length each contact prefers.
  • Try to aim for an 8th-grade reading level
    This will help maximize engagement with your contacts. This can be done by using shorter sentences, a mix of longer and shorter words, the use of first and second person (“We” and “You”), and reduced use of adverbs and adjectives.
  • Each variant must be written in English
    This version of predictive content only supports the English language.
