How Blackbaud Achieves Deeper Segmentation

Take Marketing to the Next Level

The idea of segmentation is familiar enough in the marketing world, but as in most things, some people just get it. Lisa Kenney, Sr. Demand Generation Marketing Manager at Blackbaud, is one of those people. She’s always looking for ways to take her marketing to the next level and has tremendous insight on how to do just that.
In her words, “Data is your best friend.” By putting effort into knowing your customers more deeply you can begin to segment them in ways that aren’t always immediately apparent.
With more segmentation comes more opportunity to structure your content in a more customized way, even developing various “personas” for different segments of your audience. This can be content explicitly created for each segment, or you might find that content you’ve already created can be reworked and adapted to a new segment.
This may sound daunting, but by utilizing the tips Lisa has to share and putting in a little effort, you can be well on your way to better segmentation and a more nuanced relationship with your customers.

Content Pros Lightning Round

What kind of dog do you have?
Lisa’s “baby,” as she calls him, is an English Bulldog.
Did you ever have any good stories when you were at Segway of people who were lazy enough to walk their dog on a Segway?
While she doesn’t have any dog-walking stories, there were plenty of cringe-worthy tricked out Segways that the staff would encounter.
See you next week!
