Configuring an Audience with DImension

Audience, a feature from the DImension module, is used to redivide the segmentation. We create a distribution on the horizontal axis that applies to all segments (that are on the vertical axis). The audiences are used to group individuals with similar characteristics from the segments created in the previous step of the configuration process of a DImension. These audiences can then be used to personalize contents and improve marketing campaigns' efficiency. 

Audiences can be categorized according to different criteria, depending on your marketing strategy's specific requirements and goals. You could choose criteria such as demographics (age, gender, region, country, education, revenue), buying behaviour (buying frequency, purchases value) or online behaviour (Website visitors, newsletters subscribers, email interactions). These categories are only examples, and it is possible to use a combination of criteria to create more complex and specific audiences. The purpose is to group contacts with similar characteristics and adapt contents and offers so they are more relevant.
