  11. 11. 2. SEGMENTATION Why do we perform Segmentation? SOME IDEAS ON SEGMENTATION: > Prospects vs. Clients > Active Clients (e.g. purchase/visit in the last 3 months) > Dormant Clients (e.g. purchase/visit 3 to 6 months) > Inactive clients (e.g. no purchase/no visit in the last 6 months) > High value/VIP clients: multi-buyers, addicts > B2B: big companies, small businesses > Recently joined people could be excluded from traditional campaigns > Use purchase behaviour to build lifecycle: - Subscribers with no purchase - 1 purchase only................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................my notes .........................

SEGMENTATION What is a Data File? >> A data file is an extract of your member database or an external list. >> It contains all the fields you will need to use as part of your campaigns: - Information you need to segment your database: opt-in, third party opt-in, age, gender, status (client/prospect/ suspect), country etc. - Fields needed to personalise your message: title, firstname, lastname, product name, interest, town >> You need to use a flat file to import into Campaign Commander™: - CSV file (semi colon or comma separated) - TEXT file (PIPE or TAB separated): we strongly recommend you use this format to avoid issues when importing your file (e.g. if you have , or ; in one of the fields address for instance) >> You need to get an extract from your database manager or IT department with all the fields you require for your campaign. >> If you have an excel spreadsheet, you.................................... need to convert the file into a text format:.................................... - SAVE AS.................................... - Select File Type Text....................................
