Root Audiences: A scalable macro segmentation framework for personalization

Currently available on demand

About the Webinar

The rise of customer-centricity has given way to the concept that the closer to 1:1 brands become, the closer to their customer they will be. But what happens when this mentality translates into hundreds of micro-segments that are not only difficult to manage but also yield little-to-no learnings about what each cohort truly cares about?

In this talk, Dynamic Yield’s Director of Customer Success, Ben Malki, introduces Root Audiences, an internally-developed macro segmentation framework designed to bring personalization to life in a functional, repeatable, and scalable manner. Joining him is Robbie Reaves, Product Manager of Build.com, who shares his experience implementing the approach as the company focuses on its ability to build truly customer-centric experiences.
Topics up for conversation:

  • The challenges presented by micro-segmentation
  • Revisiting macro segmentation and why it works
  • Processes and guidelines to put in place to yield maximum business value
  • Institutionalizing insights and learnings for deeper personalization
  • How Build.com optimized sitewide recommendations with Root Audiences
