I just want to make sure I’m under the correct understanding so I don’t do a bunch of work and have to re-do.
Overview: I have a company that provides a single point of contact for Cyber Security and Cloud Business solutions, basically an AppStore. Clients sign-up various services, which we’ll use the API to submit them to Mautic to Segment and Tag them. There are a significant cross-sell capability between many of these services, which we want to use Mautic to organize clients based on the services they use to deliver services updates and alerts, as well directly target them with cross-sell marketing messages for relevant services.
Based on the reading of Mautic documentation this is my current understanding how Mautic organizes data.
Categories - Acts like a folder to group topic/theme assets together, like emails, landing pages, forms, etc.
Segments - Creates groups of contacts based on a trait and is used for creating campaigns.
Tags - Additional differentiation or labeling of contacts within segments, but can’t be used for create campaigns.
So for structure I’m envisioning the following.
Category = Client Status
- New Lead
- Active Client
- Dead Client
Tags = (Number of employees)
- Industry (Government, Medical, Educational, …etc.)
Category = Services
Segments = (Each service is a segment.)
- SentinelOne XDR
- Private MS Exchange Email
- Acronis Backup & Recovery
Tags = (Service options.)
- Cloud Backup
- Advanced Management
- Disaster Recovery
Category = Hardware
Tags = (Manufacturer + Model)
- X1 Carbon
- VAIO Z
Am I on the right track and understanding or is there a better way?
