When marketers segment an email list, they have the opportunity to provide recipients with more relevant content, which may provide better value and could lead to higher conversions and more profit.
In this 30-minute online seminar, which first aired on Jan. 23, 2018, we’ll recommend specific email list segmentation strategies for merchants selling in multiple channels, such as physical stores, ecommerce sites, and through marketplaces like Amazon, Walmart, and Ebay.
Email Segmentation Strategies for Multichannel Merchants
We’ll address the following key points.
- Mistakes to avoid. Where and how a merchant’s customers buy has a significant effect on which marketing messages will work for them. Sending brick-and-mortar-specific offers to someone who buys only online makes no sense, nor does sending ecommerce flash sale notifications to a shopper who joined your email list at a physical store. We’ll explain, with examples of what not to do.
- Segmentation results. Merchants that apply meaningful segments to their email marketing program typically see material increases — 60 percent or more — in opens, clicks, and conversions. We’ll cite examples, with the results.
- Identifying segments. Ecommerce merchants have many potential email segments. We’ll explain how to know which segments can produce the most return for your business — behavior, geography, apparent interest level, or something completely different.
- Testing and evaluating. Learning to test and evaluate the results from email campaigns is critical, to know which segments are producing and which are not. We provide a framework for monitoring — and improving.
- Amazon customers. Amazon sellers can email their Marketplace customers through approved third-party platforms. Sellers can segment those emails by SKU and then target the customers for related products. We’ll explain, with examples.
