Magento 2 Milestone, better solution with great benefits
With numerous customers, it is very hard for store owners to manage without grouping customers. Segmenting customers and locate them into the same groups helps store owners manage customers better, and have the appropriate caring policies for customers.
Group customers to segment is to ensure that the right marketing messages are sent to the right people. This helps stores to decide on the right kind of promotion plans, promotional content sending to customers. As a result, this brings the efficiency in ROI after each campaign.
When customers are divided into different groups, store owners can estimate the number of targeted customers and workload for marketing tasks. This can save a lot of time and money for each marketing campaign.
When customers are divided into various groups based on different criteria, store admins can create welcome, discount, or loyalty programmes to build up, maintain and tighten the relationship with customers effectively.
All customers who have placed orders for the first time at the stores will be grouped into “New” Group. Based on that, store owners can create special policy and discounts to welcome and motivate such customers.
Customers who make the orders with large value such as the total amount exceeds 1000$ should be switched to a special VIP group, and there should be special offers for them.
Depending on the number of orders, store owners can know who the loyal customers are. For example, Loyalty group will include customers who have done 50 orders.
Loyal customers are very important to any stores and they should be grouped to be offered with the loyalty or reward programs
Easy to divide customers into groups based on categories. For example, who buy items belongs to Sport Categories will be grouped into “Sport Lovers”.

Milestone allows you to automatically switch shoppers to suitable groups based on a variety of customer attributes including customer data, customer default shipping address, customer group
- Customer Data such as date of birth, name, gender, email, VAT number, etc.

- Customer Group means the original groups of customers
For example, in May, you can switch the customers whose DOB is in May to “Discount In May” Group. This group becomes the data to help you in marketing campaigns in the upcoming May.
Flexibly switch customer groups
With Milestone, users will be switched to suitable customer groups automatically based on rules which are configured by store admins.

Depending on this, store can get the information the popularity of each item available in store and have the business strategies suitably.
Move customer groups by order data
The customer groups can be moved by the attributes of orders. Customers whose orders share the similarity will be moved to the same groups, such as the number of orders, total order amount, average order amount, etc. For example, all customers with the first order will belong to “New” group and receive welcome vouchers.
Store owners can take advantage of this feature to run loyalty campaigns for customers depending on order attributes.
Add coupons when joining a new group
Store owners can create a coupon rule to apply for the destined group. It can work as the benefits of customers when they join a new group. Customers will receive coupon information via email. This is the way to show store appreciation and motivate customers to make more purchases as well as become loyal shoppers.
For example, after customers join VIP groups, for each order at least $50, they will get free shipping.
