    Segmentation Improves Results

    Many ecommerce merchants rely on email marketing. But the results can be greatly improved if the emails are tailored to the specific circumstances of each recipient. For example, an email recipient in Alaska may respond differently than one in Florida. An infrequent customer typically requires a different message than a frequent one. And so on.

    Segmenting emails based on the habits and circumstances of each recipient may seem difficult. But it's not. Most every email service platform offers segmentation options. Even the smallest merchants can benefit from it ; as do the very largest.
    The Basics of Email Segmentation

    Carolyn Nye will explain four common email segmentation strategies for ecommerce merchants. She will address how to create the actual email templates and how to match the segments with your database.

    Date. There are purchase-anniversary dates, expected replenishment dates, birthdays, and holidays. We'll offer ideas for date-generated segments.

    Geographical. Where recipients live can greatly affect their buying habits. There are different states, different countries and even different parts of a city, such as the location to the nearest retail location.

    Past purchasing habits. Customers that purchase different products should receive different emails. In fact, past purchasing habits include the products, their prices, and the shopping traits that those habits convey.

    Email activity. A recipient's prior email activity such as opens and clicks can indicate the need for a new subject line, content, and offer. We'll explain.

    Q&A Follows Presentation

    Following her presentation, Nye will respond to questions for attendees.
