Creating a segment based on who opened last campaign.

Start simple and learn as you go

Just by identifying a single characteristic that you want to filter your audience by, you can start to be more intentional about what you say. And by sending more targeted messages to smaller segments, you’ll learn more from how these contacts interact with campaigns.

Layer on filters to tighten up your targeting

As your audience grows, you can layer up to 5 segmentation criteria to find exactly who you want to talk to. You can also save these search filters and they’ll update automatically with the latest data, so you'll always know you’re talking to the right people.

"I really believe segmentation helps us to prevent unsubscribes, because people aren't getting swarmed with email. We do see a correlation between our segmentation and increased sales."
