Creating and managing segments

Segment your contacts to run targeted campaigns to specific criteria groups. Segments can be created in your Salesfire dashboard to identify the criteria that a user must meet to be included in a data set, allowing you to send highly personalised email and SMS campaigns to users. 

Setting up segments

To create a new segment, select the Audiences option from the main nav menu in your Salesfire dashboard. 

The Create new segment button within the Audiences section of the Salesfire dashboard.

Segments best practices

Choose the Segments tab within the Audiences section. Here you will find some default-created lists to help with running targeted campaigns:

  • Known non-buyers - customers who have had data collected with no purchase history. 
  • Known one-time buyers - customers with one purchase since their data was collected.
  • Known repeat buyers - customers with more than one purchase since their data was collected. 

These default segments have been created with eCommerce best practices in mind and enable you to start segmenting your audiences based on data collected and buying history. 

Creating a new segment

To create a new segment for specific target campaigns select Create a new segment. 

This will open the segment modal where you can select the criteria required for your segmented campaigns. 

Select the Eligibility dropdown to set the focus for your segment group. The criteria can include the following rules:

  • Lifetime Spend - set the criteria of your segment to include a lifetime spend of a set value. 
  • Lifetime Purchases - set the criteria of your segment to include a total lifetime purchase value. 
  • AOV - set the segment criteria based on an average order value. Add the monetary value to the field and choose less than, greater than or equal to the amount set. 
  • CR - set the criteria to the conversion rate percentage desired for the segmented list. 
  • Last Purchased at  - set a timeframe for when a customer last purchased.
  • Last Contacted at - set a timeframe for when a contact was last contacted. 
  • Last Visited at  - set a timeframe for when a contact last visited your site.
  • Total Sessions - set a numerical value for the total number of sessions a data set must have in order to be added to a segment. 
  • Last Search Query - add a wording phrase that must match the last query searched by a contact in order to be added to a segment. Choose if this contains, does not contain or is not an exact match. 

Adding a condition 

Once you have selected the eligibility criteria for your segment you can choose a condition to further segment the data. This can be greater than, smaller than or equal to a value or contain or not contain a particular phrase.

The conditions available will differ depending on the eligibility attribute chosen.
