  1. Behaviour-Based Segmentation – Unveil Insights through Actions

Behaviour-based segmentation involves analysing how customers interact with your brand, allowing you to create tailored emails based on their engagement, purchase history, and browsing patterns.

  • Engagement Levels: Segment subscribers based on their level of interaction with your email campaigns – highly engaged, moderately engaged, or disengaged. Customise content to reignite interest or reward loyalty for each specifically.
  • Abandoned Browse Triggers: Set up automated emails triggered by specific behaviours when browsing on site and deliver relevant support to help move the prospect forward to their purchase.
  • Dynamic Content: Implement dynamic content blocks in your messages that display products similar to those previously purchased or browsed.
  • Abandoned Cart Recovery: Target those who abandon their carts with personalised emails showcasing the abandoned items, reminding them of the value, offering support and enticing them to complete the purchase.
  1. Predictive Analytics – Anticipate Customer Desires

Predictive analytics employ data to forecast future Behaviours. By analysing past actions, you can anticipate customers’ next moves and tailor your emails accordingly.

  • Recommended Products: Leverage predictive algorithms to suggest products that align with each customer’s preferences and browsing history.
  • Data Integration: Integrate your ecommerce platform with predictive analytics tools to leverage customer behaviour data.
  • Continuous Refinement: Regularly review and adjust your predictive models based on real-world results.
  • Replenishment Reminders: Predict when customers might need to repurchase consumable products (based on the size, amount and when they bought, for example) and send timely reminders.
  • Personalised Offers: Use predictions to send targeted discounts or offers to customers who are likely to respond positively.
  1. RFM Analysis Segmentation – Ranking Customers Through Recency, Frequency, Monetary Value

RFM (Recency, Frequency, Monetary) analysis is a data-driven technique that ranks customers based on their purchase behaviour. This approach helps identify the most valuable customers and tailor emails accordingly.

  • Segmentation by RFM Scores: Group customers into segments based on their RFM scores – high spenders, frequent shoppers, recent buyers, etc.
  • Segment-Specific Campaigns: Create email campaigns that cater to each RFM segment’s preferences and behaviours.
  • Lifecycle Stage Transition: Implement automated workflows to move customers between RFM segments as their behaviour changes, ensuring ongoing personalisation.
  1. Sentiment Analysis Segmentation – Understanding Emotional Triggers 

Sentiment analysis involves analysing customer responses, comments, and interactions to gauge their emotional state. By understanding emotions, you can tailor emails that resonate on a deeper level.

  • Emotionally Aligned Content: Craft emails that align with customers’ sentiments, using language and imagery that resonates positively with their emotional state.
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP): Utilize NLP tools to analyse customer feedback and interactions for sentiment indicators.
  • Customised Subject Lines: Adjust subject lines based on sentiment analysis, ensuring that they align with customers’ emotional preferences.
  • Emotion-Driven Offers: Create offers or content that address customers’ emotional needs, providing solutions that resonate with their current feelings.
