Improve your open and clickthrough rates
Segmentation greatly improves the response of your email marketing campaigns, raising open rates from an average of 20% to 50%, and raising clickthroughs from 5% to 30%. This is because the message is more relevant to the reader's interests and needs. Improved email campaign response translates into increased productivity, return on marketing investment, and higher profitability.
Segmentation breaks your list into smaller groups based on demographic and activity data such as:
- Title & Role
- Survey Responses
- And more…
Once you have defined a set of criteria, the segment automatically includes the members with those attributes. People can belong to any number of segments, and you can use this information to tailor your email message for each group, or develop product and pricing strategies.
Your relationship with your clients is, without question, the most important factor in your success. With detailed knowledge about your clients needs and interests, your marketing campaigns can greatly improve by raising relevance and timeliness. Your email service provider should provide you with the tools to help you develop a detailed set of criteria and engage your email subscribers successfully.
