For now, only WooCommerce stores can run on Blue Odin.

As you’ve learned earlier in this course, email list segmentation is a must for successful email marketing campaigns.

By combining segmentation with email automation, i.e. sending scheduled campaigns and trigger-based email sequences, you can literally skyrocket your sales (provided you do all the other things we’ve taught so far!).

Most email service providers allow you to segment and automate your emails.

Blue Odin is one of them. But Blue Odin is not your run-of-the-mill email provider.

In addition to segmentation, email campaigns, and sequences, Blue Odin is also a full-featured WooCommerce dashboard.

It imports your WooCommerce data and offers robust analytics and insight, while at the same time, allowing you to send marketing emails to your customers.

We will divide this bonus chapter into 3 sections – list segmentation, email campaigns, and email sequences.

#1 – List Segmentation

Blue Odin’s list segmentation feature helps you reach the right customers. Linking your WooCommerce store to Blue Odin will import all of your store’s data, including the list of customers who purchased products from your site.

You can create as many customer segments as you like, so it’s great for hyper-targeted marketing campaigns!

Here’s how you get started:

1. Go to Segments > Customers. Then select the WooCommerce store in the site selector and click on the + button.

3. In the Criteria section, you can filter your customers by these variables:

  • Order count – the number of orders placed
  • Lifetime value – the dollar amount of total purchases made
  • Has ordered – the product name ordered

4. Click the blue Submit button to create your segment. You will now be able to use your segments in your email campaigns and email sequences!

Here’s how you create your first trigger-based email sequence:

1) Go to Email > Email Sequences and select the WooCommerce store from the site selector. Click the Add New button.
