Five Examples of Small Businesses and Nonprofits That Are Segmenting Their Email Lists

By Blaise Lucey

Imagine, hypothetically, that you like comedy. You like seeing stand-up comedians and you enjoy going to a specific theater. So, you sign up to get email updates about upcoming shows. But the next three newsletters that come to your inbox are about opera performances. What are the odds you’re going to find these emails relevant? Pretty slim, right? Chances are you’re probably going to ignore future emails or unsubscribe altogether. That’s why—when you’re using email marketing services—it can pay off to segment subscribers into different contact lists. This allows you to send focused email marketing campaigns to your contacts with specific interests and provide content and offers that they’ll really, really like. Here are five examples of small businesses and nonprofits, and how they segment their lists effectively:

1. SpeechGear SpeechGear sells complex, enterprise-level software that translates speech into different languages in real time. The company has created 92 granular lists. The lists are divided into four main categories: a) State/Occupation b) Conference c) General d) Organization It’s important to note that SpeechGear isn’t sending emails to all 92 lists all the time. Instead, when there’s an upcoming tradeshow in Alabama, for example, the team can send a notice to educators in Alabama who they already know are interested in the product.
