[01:59] What is List Segmentation?

  • List segmentation is like putting your subscribers into buckets or segments.
  • You do that using tags.
  •  Almost every email autoresponder software has a tagging system.

[02:32] How to use it?

  • You tag people based on their interests and their interactions with you.
  • Every time they interact with one of your emails, either click or buy something, you tag them.
  • There is no limit to how many tags you can assign to them

[03:01] Why do you do that?

  • It’s like you’re building a profile of what interests them
  • Next time you’re going to be mailing about something, you’ll have a segment that’s more responsive towards one type of offer or another.
  • There are times or should they say market segments or groups of people on your list that require more warm up, pre-framing, and bridging because we’re all driven by agendas.

[03:28] Some examples of list segmentation:

  • You can segment in an unlimited number of ways, but on the most basic level, is if you are collecting this information upfront, for example men and women.
  • You can ask your subscribers to tick some boxes before signing up to the email list, and that’s how you segment them based on the information they provide
  • It’s very common in the health niche for example, where the products that are promoted depend a lot on the gender of the person, or other details.
  • Another way to segment would be a buyer versus nonbuyer. 
  • If they’re a buyer and they bought through your link, have them reach out for a bonus. And once they do, you can tag them in your system and you can say these are my buyers, and you can choose to treat them differently
  • You could also segment based on a funnel

[05:13] Segmentation And Sequences:

  • You can send multiple emails every day, each to a different segment in your list
  • The reason you sometimes receive a million different sequences from the same marketer, is because you subscribed to their list through different funnels, so you are tagged with multiple tags and receive different campaigns simultaneously
  • Every time a person takes an action, that would classify them as a part of a different segment. So whether it’s an open or a click or purchase or give you a piece of information of some sort, you can then tag them using the tagging system in your software, and send them a different sequence.
