Creating a segment

Your primary work area is in the defining of segments area, which gives you some options to create the segment you want.

There is already added a segment group for you, that contains 1 condition for the e-mail field.

Let´s try out this condition, by selecting the type "Contains" in the 2. field (condition operator). Then write "hotmail" in the value field. This means, you only want to include contacts in your segment, that contains "hotmail" in their e-mail field.

If you already have contacts in your contact list, your most likely gonna see the first matching contacts showing up in the table below.

Segment group

Segment groups contains all the conditions you want to filter your contacts with. You can create more of these segments groups, by clicking the "Another segment" button.

By default, new segment groups is added as a "AND" condition. This means, that your contacts have to match both segment groups.

If you choose the "OR" condition for the segment group, then that means your contacts should match either one of them, and not necessarily both.

Conditions

Conditions can be used to set up filtrering on fields and values. You can add as many of these as you want, by clicking the "Add condition" button inside the segment groups.

You can achieve some extremely well targeted segments by combining multiple conditions and segment groups, so that you can send more personalized campaigns which would result in higher conversions.
