Among the demographic data which can be easily collected from your customers and will influence your communication's effectiveness is gender. After all, people of different genders tend to have different interests and pay attention to different aspects of a product. What attracts one does not necessarily attract the other.
With edrone, you can find your customers' gender in their Customer Profile. The available definitions are: male, female, refused to pass, unknown, and other.
How to collect gender data
There are five ways to add your customer's gender to their profile in edrone:

How to segment by gender

To do so, while creating a Dynamic Newsletter, go to the AUDIENCE section, select GENDER from the Audience type menu, and then select the desired gender from the Gender menu. That's all there is to it! Your email will be sent only to the customers assigned to the selected gender.
