 How important is segmentation in SMS marketing?                                       

If in addition to sending a great SMS campaign your messages are segmented correctly, you’ll be able to achieve an even better response. Customers will identify more with the brand, as the messages they receive will be more focused to their personal profile. This, in turn, will improve customer response and increase your conversion rate.                                                                

Bulk SMS messaging vs email marketing

This is very similar to how email marketing campaigns work: marketers segment email lists according to the recipients and change key features of the email.

To correctly segment a list, first carefully analyze the data of the people that appear on your list of contacts. These database contacts can then be filtered according to the key features that are most important for the particular campaign you plan to send out.

How to segment with SMS?

You can segment an SMS list by various characteristics:

  1. Personal details: sex, age, where the customer lives…
  2. Previous interaction with messages: if they open SMS messages or not, or if they interact with a message once they open it (by clicking on a link, for example), or not.
  3. What types of products they buy.
  4. How often they buy products.
