     It is important to know for how big part of your audience, attribute your insight is referring to is known for. It can happen that the attribute is known only for a small part of your audience (less than 1 % for example), in that case, your insight will not represent all your customers. Bigger the percentage is, the bigger part of your audience that insight represents.

    What I can learn from my insights and what I can do with that knowledge

    With insights, you can quickly dive into analytics  of your segmented audience, as well as the whole customer's dataset. 

    Depending on your marketing objectives and strategy it can be data connected to your revenue (average spending, max-min spending), customer engagement (highly engaged customers across the channels or within a particular channel), customer behaviour (most common URLs clicked, common locations, devices) and any other attribute that is available for your dataset.

    Simply define what data matters to you, setting this up lays within clicks away. 

    Knowing this will help you quickly understand your customers' behaviour that matters to you across data sources better, which will improve your marketing strategies.

    You may learn about behaviour that will inspire you to build other segments for your perfect audience. 

    Most common use cases:

    • Checking data quality (eg. whether segment contains a lot of customers with known PII/ with permission to contact).
    • Checking best channel for activation (eg. channel with the highest engagement).
    • Measure campaign performance (eg. most common UTM source/medium/campaign that brings web visitors). 
    • Identify the most common devices/country/OS which are useful for targeting.
