How Do You Partition Your Email Subscriber List?

Sending the same content to everyone on your List is like walking in the dark and never really connecting with anything solid.

Your buyers and clients are diverse and won’t all respond to the same thing in the same manner. You need to dig deeper to determine what Your List wants and needs. Reshaping and customizing your communications to appeal to your contrasting subscriber lists will produce better results.

Businesses differ, and there’s no right or wrong way in how to segment your lists. Basically you want to divide your Email Subscribers into smaller lists based on specific criteria that you choose. The segmentation criteria should be identifying information that will help you send relevant communications to each list group.

Purchase Behavior: Seasonal, Monthly, Cancellations, Online/Offline or Both, etc

Business Type: Small Business, Non-Profit, Franchise, eCommerce, Retail, etc
