  1. ECOMMERCE SEGMENTATION How to use a data-driven approach to optimize

    your eCommerce store for incredible results. Chris Lema, VP of Products, Liquid Web
  2. What it looks like on your store… What it looks

    like in real life… Purchases: 2,360 Total Revenue: $160,570 Customers: 2,108 Lifetime Value: $76 Avg. Order Value: $68
  3. What if you stepped away from averages? 32 Customers had

    Average Order Values of $195 (instead of $68). 210 Customers had LTVs of $185 (instead of $76).
  4. Everything on this homepage suggests they’re targeting women. What happens

    when I click and browse the men’s collection? Nothing.
  5. It’s the journey that matters. Every step and click that

    a customer makes tells you something about their intention and, more importantly, about themselves.
  6. Would you treat someone who comes to an article, then

    to your product, cart & checkout differently than someone who comes directly to your site, searches, finds and adds product to cart but never checks out? Sure you would. Organic buyers are more valuable than researchers.
  7. The point of segmentation is to figure out not only

    your various segments but your most profitable ones – so you can target them with better designs & better messaging.
  8. Look for the 5% that will drive your revenue growth!

  9. First Purchasers – customers who have made a single purchase

    Big Spenders – customers whose AOV is in the top 10% VIP Shoppers – customers in the top 10% based on their spend Most Active Customers – customers who have made 3 or more orders (<2% of customers, who bring in 24% of revenue) Coupon Lovers – customers who used a coupon for purchases Cart Abandoners – people who didn’t finish their transactions
  10. We suggest stores check out Glew.io It provides all of

    these segments (and more) automatically out of the box. Included in our Standard Managed Woo Plans.
  11. With or without Glew, the trick is tagging your customers

    in an Email/CRM system like ConvertKit, MailChimp, ActiveCampaign or AgileCRM. You can use their integrations, or a solution like WP Fusion.
  12. With WP Fusion, you can tag customers based on ordering

    specific products. And with tools like Beaver Builder, you can display items based on their tags.
  13. Change the homepage based on customer tags or onsite behavior.

    After browsing the men’s t-shirt collection (3 clicks), the homepage was completely transformed to show me ads and options for men instead of the default women’s selections.
  14. How? Right Message Monitoring clickstreams is easy with RightMessage and

    allows you to change just about anything, based on the segment.
  15. Just a Little Information Helps Notice how we can adjust

    the hero image without being explicit. Noise Cancelling Bluetooth
  16. Bring your best products to the top. If a Big

    Spender or VIP shows up to your store, you could change the sort order easily. /?orderby=price-desc
  17. Introduce “Lite” Pressure People who browse a lot, Researchers, need

    a little incentive to make a purchase. “60 others are viewing this property right now.” “74% booked. Rooms are selling out fast.”
  18. Deliver Coupons “Just in Time” Customers who are Coupon Lovers

    can be triggered with coupons based on what they put in their cart, or captured as they’re leaving the store. Check out Ahoy! https://useahoy.com/
  19. Reconnect with Cart Abandoners Everyone tagged as a Cart Abandoner

    represents free money! Use tools like Jilt to create multi-part campaigns to bring them back. Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce plans come with Jilt.
  20. Share the Love w/ Repeat Buyers This is a ConvertKit

    Automation. It basically monitors purchases and then updates a custom field. When “Total Purchases” is 0 and an order comes in, it changes it to 1. It keeps doing this until it updates to 3. Then it adds a Repeat Buyer tag. That’s when another automation can go out with a special coupon, based on a new tag (Repeat Buyer) being added.
