Segment your contacts using a pre-defined segment

The key to reaching the right people at the right time is organizing your contact database into targeted segments. While creating these segments manually can be a time-consuming and challenging task, pre-defined segments can save you time and effort by providing instant access to ready-made groups of contacts based on common criteria such as demographics, behavior, preferences, and engagement history.

What is a pre-defined segment?

A pre-defined segment refers to a ready-made group of contacts that have been categorized and organized based on specific criteria or characteristics. They can serve as a starting point for segmentation and can be further customized based on specific criteria that are unique to your business. 

Unlike manually creating segments from scratch, using pre-defined segments offer a convenient and time-saving solution. They eliminate the need for extensive data analysis and manual filtering, providing instant access to groups of contacts that share common traits or behaviors.

Using pre-defined segments, you can then enhance the precision and relevance of your campaigns. You can create personalized messages, offers, and experiences that resonate with the specific needs and interests of each segment, leading to higher customer engagement, improved conversion rates, and, ultimately, better business outcomes.
