Creating segmentations

Create a group of customers that share the same features. Later, you can use this segmentation as a target for your marketing activities.

Requirements


  • You need to have customers on your contact list in CRM. You can either acquire them by website tracking or you can import them.
  • Or you can implement a tracking code into your website.

Procedure


Image presents the process of creating a segmentation

  1. Go to Analytics icon Analytics > Segmentations > Create new.

  2. Enter the name of the segmentation.

  3. Optionally, to help other users with identifying the purpose of the segmentation, you can add a description.

  4. To add the first step to the segmentation, click the Choose filters button.

  5. From the list, select the event on the basis of which you want to build a segmentation. Customers who performed the activity that triggers the event will be included in the segmentation.

    Note: Apart from events, you can use other elements, such as client attributes.

  6. If you want to specify the event parameters, click the + where button. This way you can narrow your analysis to only particular occurrences of a type of event

  7. To add more substeps to the segmentation, click the + Add funnel step button.

    Note: The order of steps is important. The customers are counted in the segmentation when they perform a sequence of steps within the time specified in the step 10. You can change the order of steps by dragging and dropping them.
  8. To add another step, click the Choose filter button and repeat the steps in points 5 and 6.

  9. To define the dependency between the main steps, choose either the OR or AND operator.

    • OR - Only one main step needs to be performed.
    • AND - All main steps need to be performed.
    Important: The order of the logic operators matters. The right side of the last operator is one operand and everything on the left side of the last operator is treated as the other operand. Analyze the following examples.

    Example
    This analysis shows the division of 8 customers who have been assigned with particular tags between 2 segmentations.

    • Segmentation 1: Customers labeled with the following tags: CHI or NY and LA. This means that in order to be part of the segment a customer needs to be tagged with LA, and simultaneously be tagged with CHI, or NY, or both CHI and NY.
    • Segmentation 2: Customers labeled with the following tags: CHI and NY or LA. This means that in order to be part of the segment a customer needs to either be tagged with only LA or they need to be tagged with CHI and NY simultaneously (and the LA tag doesn't matter in this case).

    List of customers:

    1. LA x  x
    2. LA NY x
    3. LA NY CHI
    4. x  NY x
    5. x  NY CHI
    6. x  x  CHI
    7. LA x  CHI
    8. x  x  x
    

    Results:

    • Customer 1 - Segmentation 2
    • Customer 2 - Segmentation 1
    • Customer 3 - Segmentation 1 and 2
    • Customer 4 - None
    • Customer 5 - Segmentation 2
    • Customer 6 - None
    • Customer 7 - Segmentation 1
    • Customer 8 - None
  10. To set the time needed to complete all steps in the segmentation, click the clock icon. Only when a customer performs a required order within the specified time, they will be included in the segmentation.

  11. To determine the time range from which the data will be analyzed, click the calendar icon. Confirm your choice with the Apply button.

  12. You can create another segmentation by clicking the Analytics icon button. Then, repeat the steps from 1 to 11. When a segmentation consists of two main segments, customers who fall into the first don't take part in the analysis of the second one.

    Tip: If you want your new segmentation to be visible in the client card of the customers who belong to this segment, switch the Show in client card option on.
  13. To complete the process, click the Save button. When you save the segmentation, you can find it on the list of segmentations under the given name.
