Best practices

To ensure that you maintain good deliverability, you should only send your first few email campaigns to an engaged segment of your list(s) from Campaign Monitor. Since you'll have open and click data from Campaign Monitor, you'll be able to use this to segment your list. You should also include open and click data from Klaviyo, as this will add engaged users that interact with your Klaviyo emails going forward. Last, be sure to add conditions that limit your sends to customers who have been added to your main list. This will ensure that your emails are targeting customers that have opted into receiving messages (by joining your list).

Build your engaged segment by using the conditions below. The open and click conditions below are scoped to 30 days. If you send emails less often, you can loosen these timeframes to 60 or even 90 days. Be sure to monitor your deliverability whenever increasing your engagement window. If you find your open and click rates decreasing, then tighten your engagement criteria by lowering the timeframe back to 30 days.

To create the segment:

  • Name: Engaged segment
  • If someone is in or not in a list > Person is > in Newsletter
  • AND What some has done (or not done) > Opened Email (Campaign Monitor) > at least once > in the last > 30 > days
  • OR What some has done (or not done) > Clicked Email (Campaign Monitor) > at least once > in the last > 30 > days
  • OR What some has done (or not done) > Opened Email (Klaviyo) > at least once > in the last > 30 > days
  • OR What some has done (or not done) > Clicked Email (Klaviyo) > at least once > in the last > 30 > days
  • OR If someone is in or not in a list > Person is > in Newsletter > and was added in the last > 7 > days
