Freshmarketer allows to segment the results with the help of filters and helps to acquire deeper insights about a specific category of visitors. The results of an experiment can be segmented conveniently to see
- how the segmented visitors drop off (Funnel analysis),
- how the segmented visitors engage with the site (Polls and Feedback),
- what variation is best suited (A/B testing and split URL)
Segmenting the results provides the essential insights on diverse groups of visitors and their behavior.
For instance, an experiment is run for an e-commerce site and to see the filtered narrowed down results based on visitors using Google Chrome browser in mobiles, segment the results by selecting Google chrome in browser and Phone in Device type.
