Can Celebrity Co-Branding Drive Repeat Purchases?


Each week we talk to many of you via email, chat, and account review calls to listen to your ideas and learn about your business. We collect the top questions from these conversations and anonymize them to bring you a new series we call: Questions of the week.

❓ I launched a celebrity-branded product a few months ago and I want to Know are the customers who purchased this product coming back to buy again? If so, what else did they buy? 

💡How to use Segments to answer this question: 

a. Create a segment with all the customers who bought these products:

  1. Go to the Segments app and open the Segment builder
  2. Click on add filter and select product title + contains + your celebrity-branded product names.
  3. Add a filter containing ordered date + after + campaign start date
  4. Click on apply filters and save your segment
