Target market segmentation in XL.Today™

Target market segmentation in XL.Today™

The era of mass marketing is over. Databases are at their most powerful when segmented. Blasting your entire database is a guaranteed way of decreasing engagement rates and increasing opt-out rates.

If you want to increase engagement and conversion levels from your existing customer database, the simplest way to do this is through a database segment. If you want to know why read on.

Target your communication to specific audiences

Database segments allow you to target specific audiences with specific messages. Use existing data fields (e.g. sales history, engagement history, demographic and psychographic data) to segment your database, then create messaging that corresponds with the desires and needs of this segment. Almost without fail you will find that all of your KPI's will improve on campaigns.

Listen to what you're existing customers are telling you

If your marketing activity relates better to previous customer behaviour, then you have a greater chance of success. You may have collected this data through your e-Commerce store, Point of Sale or CRM. This is your chance to put it to work to deliver more meaningful messages to all of your customers, more often.  Once you start using more database segments that overlap individual customer profiles, you will start to build a much more accurate understanding of how to improve marketing activity.

'What does all of this mean?'

The more granular your marketing reports, the greater chance you have of understanding what works and doesn't work. Target market segmentation allows you to drill down to smaller and smaller market segments and identify specific activity that generates measurable results. It's how you take the guesswork out of your marketing strategy.

'Doesn't more segments create more work?'

The more segments you create, the more tailored content and campaigns you need to create. To a normal under-resourced Marketing team, this would be too much, however to a Marketing team using XL.Today™ they can take all of this in their stride.
