How to Make a Smart Email in HubSpot 

Step 1: In your email editor, hover over the rich text that you'd like to make smart and click more

Step 2: Click add smart rule and you'll see you can show different content based on content list membership or contact lifecycle stage. Once you create a smart rule variation, you can create content based on that variation that will be present inside the rich text module. Note, to delete a rule, click on manage smart rules and click the trash icon next to the rule you want to remove. Make sure to save the change.

Step 3: To make your subject line smart, go to settings, scroll down to subject line and click add smart rule. Here you add a smart rule the same way you did with the rich text module.
