B. Creating a custom High Value customers segment
Apart from the default pre-built segment you can also tweak the segment conditions and use these three approaches to determine a high value customer:
- Frequent Buyers: Customers who have made a minimum number of purchases within a designated timeframe.
- High Spenders: Customers who have surpassed a specified threshold of spending over a certain period.
- Combined Criteria: Customers who meet either a minimum purchase count or expenditure limit within a defined time frame.
It is crucial to include a time-based constraint when defining your high value customers. Otherwise, you might include inactive or long-term customers who don't qualify as high value.
- Frequent Buyers Use the segment definition User shopify activity→ Placed order → occurred → more than → X in the last 365 days. Use a number X that is slightly higher than your average customer's number of orders per year.
2. High Spenders Use the segment definition -User shopify activity→ Placed order → occurred → atleast → 1 in the last 365 days→ where Total sum values of all orders →is greater than →X Use a revenue number X that is slightly higher than your average customer's yearly spend.
3. Combined Criteria Use the segment definition User shopify activity→ Placed order → occurred → more than → X in the last 365 days →where Total sum values of all orders →is greater than →Y . Use order frequency X and revenue Y that is slightly above average for a customer in a given year
