Contact tagging represents a huge part of email marketing that is about collecting data about your contacts.

A contact tag is a label that adds information to your email contact.
It can be:

  • Interest

  • Purchased product

  • Downloaded content

  • Geolocation

  • Attended event/webinar

  • Clicked in an email

  • Etc.

Tagging helps you: 

  • Avoid spamming your subscribers,

  • Know what type of content they are interested in,

  • Segment them according to their behavior,

  • Begin or end email automation,

  • Identify their life-cycle stage.

The information you collect strictly relies on your business needs but there are 2 main types: 

  • Behavior-based information

  • Data provided by your subscribers themselves

Data provided by your subscribers is self-explanatory. The information subscribers fill in the opt-in form.

Behavior-based information is the meta-information you add to your subscribers with contact tagging.
Such as: downloaded a specific ebook, attended your event/webinar, became a hot lead, paid, etc.
In other words, the information you collect from your contact through the customer journey.
