There are certain things we know to be true when it comes to email marketing. For one, segmented email marketing campaigns achieve way higher open and click-thru rates than non-segmented campaigns. We crunched the numbers using our very own customer data and concluded that campaigns segmented with our Smart Segment Builder saw a 20% higher open rate, 70% higher click-thru rate and 73% higher revenue per recipient than non-segmented campaigns.
With the release of our new Segment Builder, we have seen lots of creative ways that our customers have been segmenting their database to send more targeted, relevant campaigns and we wanted to share with you some of the best examples here.
