How to segment your email list?
You segmented contacts into active and inactive users as part of yesterday’s task. Today, we will focus on segmenting your list based on demographic (age, gender, etc.), geographic (city, country, etc.), or psychographic (interest, lifestyle, etc.) parameters.
Here's how you can do this. You can learn more about audience segmentation in this guide here.
If you do not have user data on age, gender, country, interests, etc., you can collect this via surveys, preference centers, data enrichment tools, CRMs, welcome emails, lead magnets, etc.
Once you have the required data, segment your list based on what is important for your brand.
💡 Here are some ideas to get you started-
- Segment users as per their timezone to ensure they receive newsletter and other emails during their respective business hours.
- Segment our users based on their industry to avoid sending them irrelevant content. For example, we send PLG-related content only to SaaS folks and not e-commerce folks using such industry segments.
- You can also classify based on age, gender, etc. A typical use case is sending emails with baby-related products to new moms.
- Once you process the required filters, add back the data to your ESP in different lists to send out targeted emails that are specific to each segment for your next campaign.
