New Segmentation feature offers greater precision and speed to help retailers deliver more relevant messages to customers.

We redesigned our entire segmentation system to make it faster, more flexible, and easier for commerce marketers to use

Bronto Software, the leading marketing platform for commerce, today announced the availability of new targeting capabilities designed to help commerce marketers build more precise customer segments and campaigns based on the vast amount of data to which they now have access. This new feature set works seamlessly with Bronto’s drag-and-drop automation engine, making it easy for marketers to drive more revenue through dynamic, triggered campaigns.

“Studies show that targeted emails generate 70% more revenue than batch-and-blast messages. We view targeting as critical to driving revenue with email and cross-channel marketing,” said Joe Colopy, CEO of Bronto. Colopy adds, “We redesigned our entire segmentation system to make it faster, more flexible, and easier for commerce marketers to use.”

The foundation of Bronto’s new system is an innovative marketing database. Bronto offers marketers the ability to store detailed past-purchase information directly within the Bronto Marketing Platform and to use this data to build segments and create more relevant campaigns. Bronto provides various options for importing order information into Bronto, including APIs and JavaScript, as well as pre-built integrations with e-commerce platforms such as Magento and Demandware.

Bronto analyzes order data and calculates key metrics for each contact in the database. Knowing which products someone purchased recently, along with metrics such as Average Order Value and Total Spend, can make for a much more effective campaign.

“One of the things that makes the Bronto Marketing Platform so effective for us is the speed with which we can run segments,” says Gavin Jocius, Marketing Director at Canvas On Demand. “The processing power and speed that Bronto offers to run segments across multiple lists so we can execute really targeted emails is extremely helpful.”

A new segment interface makes it much easier and faster to create sophisticated segments. Among other features, the enhanced interface now includes a new criteria browser for selecting segment categories. Instead of having to click on a drop-down menu to find a segment category, users can simply click on the appropriate button marked by an icon, making the experience of creating segments more visual, while reducing the number of clicks.

Segment rules can be easily re-ordered with simple drag-and-drop motions, and criteria can be quickly moved from one rule to another. A new cloning feature allows marketers to easily copy rules and criteria to save time when building more complex segments.

Bronto also allows marketers to target consumers based on their geographic location; for example, their proximity to a specific postal or zip code. This can be very helpful for retailers who have brick-and-mortar locations and want to promote a sale event to only those consumers who are within a defined radius around the store location.
