Create and manage intelligent segments of participants for your SaaSquatch programs. Improve personalization and ROI by using these segments to accurately promote each program to the correct group of users.
What is User Segment?
User Segmentation is the process of dividing your user-base into groups based on shared characteristics.
Common segmentation criteria include demographic factors like:
- Job Industry
- Place of employment
You might also segment users based on a number of characteristics related to their relationship with your business like, for example:
- Membership status
- Subscription plan tier
- Last purchase date
- Signup date
By segmenting your users you can better understand their interests, follow their activity, and more accurately provide value that matches their needs.
