If you’ve been avoiding segmentation as a ‘someday’ item on your to-do list, you’re certainly not alone: We often hear from customers that segmentation is the area in which they need the most help.
The good news is the most difficult thing about ‘segmentation’ is the term itself. After all, a segment is just a filter that helps you find contacts within your audience with shared characteristics—and we’ve been working on tools to make using them even easier.
