How to Implement Segments in an Eloqua Campaign

Everything you wanted to know about segmentation (but were afraid to ask)

If you've been involved with email marketing for any amount of time, you already know that segmentation and buyer personas are crucial to your marketing success. If you're still unsure, read our post detailing 3 Reasons Why Segmentation is Vital for Email Marketing.

Customers don't want catch-all generic messaging. They want messaging that's custom-tailored to their specific wants and needs. They want to receive messages that show you understand their pain points, and they want to find out what solutions you offer for their specific situation.

To get personal with your contact list, you need to segment them into smaller, similar groups. Segments can be based on simple demographic and firmographic data, such as job function, job title, location, industry, company size. Examples of more advanced segments would include previous purchases, website activity, email interactions, or position in your sales funnel.

The fact is that the more precise the segment, the better the response rate will be, as long as your message is on point. Segments are an opportunity to speak to a specific type of contact on a personal level.

But how do you actually build segments in Eloqua?
