Behavioral segmentation is a marketing strategy where prospective clients are shown content and targeted advertisements which are based on their previous behavior, choices, and actions.

This is an extremely effective marketing practice based on the concept that if the delivered content that is more relevant for the user, the probability of their reacting in a positive manner and converting will increase. Even though it sounds like a simple concept in order to make it happen it requires a lot of experience and technical wizardry.

How are user profiles constructed

In order to implement the concept of behavior segmentation, it is essential to create user profiles. These profiles are constructed on the basis of a number of factors and data. These factors include:

  • Website analytics
  • Browsing history
  • Cookies 
  • Search history
  • Purchase history
  • Social data
  • Login details
  • App data
  • IP addresses
  • etc.

To turn all the data collected on a particular user into something actionable, it needs to be compiled by a dedicated software. Creating a working behavior segmentation program, requires the use of elements such as marketing automation, CRM (Customer Relationship Management) or conversion rate optimization tools. Using behavioral segmentation is an effective way to enable the marketers to move beyond the usual ‘batch and blast’ marketing practices. It broadens the scope of marketing by sending personalized marketing messages to the target audience.

Behavioral Segmentation marketing practices have the following advantages:

  • Relevancy: It allows the marketers to send only relevant ads and digital content to the users.
  • Efficiency: The marketing process becomes more efficient as the behavioral segmentation increases conversion rates along the sales funnel.
  • ROI: Behavioral segmentation has been proven to deliver more ROI compared to the classic marketing approach of one-size-fits-all
