Segmented marketing: discover the potential of your customers

For diversified companies as well as for those marketing a single product, a customer base is never homogeneous. Indeed, within a customer portfolio, motivations, purchasing habits, needs for advice or assistance, expectations concerning commercial discounts are different... It is this diversity of expectations and behaviours that imposes customer segmentation and justifies the relevance of segmented marketing.

To understand your customers and take appropriate action, segmentation is essential. In this way, you can implement marketing actions that are more relevant and have a greater impact. Furthermore, it is known that segmentation can effectively contribute to the development of efficient predictive models

The RFM segmentation method is one of the most widely proven segmentations. It allows you to establish a grouping of your customers according to their buying habits. It allows you to determine the quality of the customer from a marketing point of view and thus to optimise your targeting strategy to obtain the best ROI. This method is based on three marketing segmentation criteria:


Date of last purchase or last contact. The closer this date is, the more responsive the customer is.


The frequency of purchases over a specified reference period. This period is usually annual and divided into quarters.


Sum of cumulative purchases over the reference period. For certain sectors of activity such as audiovisual or online media, this criterion can be replaced by the Duration (of reading, viewing, etc.)

The criteria to be used depend on the objectives pursued and serve as a basis for the development of customer segments (for example: inactive, cold, hot, active, etc.).
