Content Staging of Enterprise Edition – Key to Efficient Content Publishing

Are there any extensions that enable you to create new shopping experiences faster and easier than before? It’s Magento 2 Content Staging that I need to mention first!

Basically, Magento 2 Content Staging is a great toolkit for merchants to manage multiple promotional campaigns. Especially it’s really helpful for consecutive campaigns where months of preparation in advance are required.

Magento 2 provided only Enterprise Edition with Content Staging feature. This feature gives your business team the ability to easily create, preview, and schedule a wide range of content updates directly from store admin.

With Magento 2 Content Staging, merchants might easily schedule a website design at a specific time in the future. This means the whole website can be set on autopilot, with different contents popping up in your site at the specified time frame. The campaign will automatically end on the end date of the campaign. All changes in design and content of a specific page will be reverted back to normal when the campaign ends, saving you from having to turn it off manually.

Changes can be made to the whole page or just a small element of the page, to the design or content of the page. You just need to set it up with content staging and leave it to run on the specified time. With no specified end date, these changes will go on forever. On the contrary, using an end date allow you to forget about these small elements and ensure the website will still function as normal when the campaign ends.

The best thing about Magento 2 Content Staging is the timeline view that it is created for easy management of website versions. Store managers can have a bird’s eye view of all change versions that have been made. They can easily view previous versions of the content or replicate multiple versions to create for different campaigns in the future.

Magento 2 Customer Segmentation for a new digital experience

In an era of big data, hyper-connected digital customer, and hyper-personalization, segmentation is the cornerstone of customer insight and understanding across the modern digital business. But the question is: Is your segmentation approached antiquated or advanced? Let’s take a look at Magento 2 customer segmentation then answer it yourself!

Basically, the concept of segmentation is so straight-forward.

You are brands. And of course, you don’t want to treat all your customers the same, because different customer groups have different needs and they contribute differently to the bottom line. Your job is develop insightful and distinct strategies for a diverse customer base.

You can create different customer segment based on their demographic data, their consumption behavior as well as their on-site behavior. Customer address, order history, products in shopping carts… are some examples of customer attribute data which can be used for segmentation. These customer segments will be utilized to create targeted marketing campaigns to the right customer group.

The downside is that demographics and brand usage patterns aren’t completely reliable predictors of which benefits are of the greatest appeal to customers. It’s more observing behaviors than understanding preferences.

With the technology evolution, it’s easier to get big data and customer analytics. Consequently, segmentation are all more valid. However, many organizations struggle with modernizing their segmentation approaches in light of the immense, multi-channel sources of customer intelligence generated each day.

The tools will tell you the best approach. Magento 2 Customer Segmentation will enable you to better understanding what each and every customer wants. With tons of extensions for Magento 2, segmentation and personalization for customers is an easy process. Magento Enterprise edition helps you with:

  • organize inventory by product groups

  • categorize price by customer segment and product type

  • segment customers by demographic criteria

  • distinguish between new and repeat customers and by shopping cart and buying history

  • track items that customers have previously searched for

  • send reminders about abandoned carts and wish lists

  • offer gift cards

  • customize gift registry

Those features help marketing managers can run campaigns and display contents dynamically to predefined segments. This ensures your marketing campaigns and initiatives are delivered to the right customers at the right time, maximizing the cost effectiveness of every single element of your promotion.

With real-time segmentation of Magento 2 customer segmentation, customers can be automatically added to or removed from a specific customer segment, based on their consumption behavior on merchant’s store. So your customer segments will always be kept up-to-date and your marketing programs will always be delivered to the right person.

Finally, you can also create a report showing all your customers and segments, as well as exporting them to a csv file for further analysis.
