Mastering Segmentation for Targeted Email Campaigns

The importance of segmentation

Email segmentation is essential for sending your subscribers tailored campaigns and flows, as it involves grouping subscribers based on criteria such as demographics, purchase history, and how they interact with your business. This allows for personalised content that resonates best with your subscribers such as preferences and interests can lead to an increase in the likelihood of engagement and conversion. By leveraging segmentation, you enhance your subscriber's experience by sending targeted campaigns, leading to deeper connections, reducing unsubscribe rates, and gaining valuable insights into audience behaviours. Ultimately, segmentation transforms your email marketing efforts, driving data-driven decisions.

Types of segmentation

Demographic Segmentation is based on factors such as gender, age and location. For instance, a shoe business can collect data on the gender of its subscribers, to send product-specific campaigns to the relevant segment.

Behavioural Segmentation relates to how your subscribers interact with your business such as orders places, website activity and open rate. For instance, your business can set up VIP segments for customers who have spent over a certain amount of money and therefore send tailored content to this group of subscribers.

Psychographic Segmentation is constructed from your customer interests and lifestyle. For example, a pet supply business which has products for dogs, cats, fish and birds could ask when their subscribers sign up what type of pet supplies they are interested in. With this information, they can use it to send tailored marketing emails.

Geographic Segmentation divides your subscribers by their location. For instance, a business with physical stores can send targeted campaigns about the shop to subscribers who have previously added this as an interest.

The benefit of segmenting your subscribers

Reduction in unsubscribe rates - Sending relevant content to your subscribers is beneficial to reducing their want to unsubscribe. Content that your subscribers see as valuable is less likely to come across as spammy, therefore your subscribers receive the content they relate to,

Personalisation - Using personalisation within email contributes to building strong and valuable relationships with your subscribers.

Improved engagement - Emails which are sent to segmented subscribers receive higher open and click rates because the recipient sees it as fitting their needs and will therefore respond positively to the content.

Techniques for Effective Segmentation

Data Collection

You can collect data from your subscribers from the moment they enter your website through a sign-up form. Using these forms effectively is vital to collecting the right data such as first name, birthday, interests and much more from your subscribers. After this data has been collected, use it to tailor content to your recipient to increase engagement and conversion.

This data goes a long way to help your email marketing platform target your audience with dynamic and personalised content.

Dynamic content 

Using dynamic content within your campaigns and flows allows you to customise sections of your emails for different segments. For example, you can send specific promotions and product recommendations tailored to each segment's interests and behaviours.

Testing and optimising

Conducting testing on your content is essential for continuously optimising email and improving performance. A/B testing is an excellent method to discover what resonates best with your audience. Using the results from these tests can help you make data-driven decisions.

In conclusion, using segmentation within your marketing strategies can reduce unsubscribe rates, increase engagement, and provide your subscribers with a personalized experience. By collecting data, incorporating dynamic content, and testing your content, you can achieve higher engagement and conversion rates.
