Who would’ve ever thought we would use AI-powered copy for our Valentine’s Day cards?
Oh Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? That’s a famous line from Shakespere’s “Romeo and Juliet” written 400 years ago.
Unfortunately, the modern-day boyfriend (or girlfriend) is busy playing games on his iPhone. So why handwrite a Valentine’s Day card when a machine can do it for you?
Valentinesday.ai is a free artificial intelligence (AI) app that customizes a romantic message based on relationship dynamics with your partner. Just type a sentence describing your current relationship and you’ll get an AI-powered Valentine’s Day message for your partner.
Let’s say you’re bad at expressing feelings. Perhaps you have a habit of saying something cheesy or weird. That’s definitely not what you want to communicate on February 14.
Valentinesday.ai probably won’t make that mistake as long as you accurately tell the app your relationship dynamics.
The app is an offspring (no pun intended) of AI-startup copy.ai which automates marketing copy for businesses. Such AI-written content includes product descriptions, blog headlines and more.
Interestingly, Galentine’s Day (celebrated on February 13) is becoming more popular with women. Galentine’s refers to the celebration of female friendships the day before Valentine’s. If you’re a lady, you can also use the app for the Feb. 13 occasion.
AI is where the world is headed.
The global AI industry was valued at $39.9 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow annually at 42% until 2027. That’s because there are a range of non-business applications. Like Valentine’s Day cards.
Expressions of love can be costly in more ways than one. It’s efficient to have AI compose a Valentine’s Day card for a loved one.
According to the Greeting Card Association, Americans buy 6.5 billion greeting cards each year including Christmas and birthday cards. The annual retail spend is between $7 and $8 billion. By far, the most popular occasion is birthdays followed by (in no particular order) thank you, wedding, get well and new baby.
So how much effort (and money) do love-birds devote to each other on Cupid’s day?
According to data compiled by WallHub, Americans this year will spend $21.8 billion on Valentine’s. That includes $2 billion on flowers and another $2 billion on candy. And 1 in 6 marriages now start online.
So February 14 can be a catalyst for starting a new family. Studies show that men spend twice more than women. However, females buy 80% of greeting cards.
If you really need non-AI ideas, here are popular messages on Valentine’s. According to card-maker Hallmark, the top ones include:
“Wishing the sweetest, happiest day to my forever Valentine.”
“Especially today, I hope you feel how much I love you and how grateful I am to have you in my life.”
“My heart is all yours.”
“Thanks for being you and for being mine.”
“I love all the adventures we have together.”
“God is good. I know because he gave me you to love.”
I wonder what William Shakespeare would have written.
