Customer Segmentation

Customer Segmentation is the practice of splitting your customer base into groups of individuals with relevant marketing similarities, such as age, gender, interests and spending habits. Although a popular practice for ecommerce giants like Amazon, the power to send highly targeted messages to your customers has been found to increase revenue by as much as 760%.

With customer segmentation at your disposal, you can now:

  1. Customize your automated marketing for particular subsets of customers
  2. Create a New Customer Offer that only applies to a subset of customers
  3. Upload contacts to a list
  4. Manually add contacts to a list in the Merchant Center
  5. Schedule a Custom Campaign to a specific list of customers
  6. Schedule a Loyalty Offer to a specific list of customers

The ROI of personalization is undeniable with data to validate lift in nearly every aspect of communication, including subject line, product offerings, promotions/offers, and more! However, despite such compelling returns, only 39% of online retailers utilize such targeting. Stay ahead of the curve by personalizing your emails and adding more value to your customers!
