Smarter segments

Targeting contacts is easy with our segment builder

Inclusion and exclusion rules

Define clearly which rules you want to be included and excluded in your segmented groups. Group conditions together using ‘AND’ and ‘OR’ rules to create increasingly intelligent segments. The targeting options are endless.

Multiple conditions

Get as granular as you want when creating your segment. With up to 30 conditions available per segment, our smart segmentation builder helps you highly refine your audiences.

Segment templates

Get started with must-have segments; our templates mean you can reach the right customers in a single click. Quickly identify who your top spenders and lapsed subscribers are. Maybe you want to pool all of your SMS contacts for a broadcast promotion? No problem, we've got everything covered. 

Real-time count

No matter how simple or comprehensive your rules, our real-time refresh gives you a live count of how many contacts are currently sat within the segment pool.

Customer insight

Use data to drive relevant content and maximize ROI

Data fields

Segment your contacts with existing information populated in data fields; this could include basic gender or postcode, as well as more advanced tactics, such as contact score.


Create segments based on customer preferences. Save these pools of engaged contacts into unique address books, so you can easily target them whenever you need to.

Email activity

Segmenting by sends, opens and clicks is as easy as 1-2-3. Filtering on this basis pools the right people together and helps inform future email campaigns (i.e. who to follow up with or re-engage).

Web behavior

Our web tracking rules make it simple for you to leverage online behaviors, such as high-intent page views, for grouping contacts together.  

Order history

Order insight enables you to filter contacts based on their order history (i.e. purchase frequency, order value). Segmenting on this basis means you can easily target your die-hard customers and encourage them to spend more.

Connect with other systems

Integrate with Magento, Salesforce, or Microsoft Dynamics to deliver more compelling customer experiences. Basing segment rules on product data or CRM information will boost the relevancy of your messages.

Use cases

With data at the core, segmentation brings your marketing programs to life

Contact data

Use customers' individual contact data to drive more clicks. Start simple with gender-based or geolocational segments, and then work your way up to smarter segments. Include these in your automated lifecycle programs for healthier engagements.

Customer intent

Create segments based on customer actions to kick-start your automation programs. If a subscriber has requested a product demo, but hasn't progressed to a sales opportunity, use this action to enroll then onto a lapsed lead program.


Make the most of our omnichannel capabilities; segment inactive contacts based on their channel preference. Bring lapsed customers back into the fold by targeting them with Facebook ads or a well-timed SMS - their preferred communication channel.
