What is Segment?
Who uses Segment?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Segment in their tech stack.
Hey all, I'm managing the implementation of a customer data platform and headless CMS for a digital consumer content publisher. We're weighing up the pros and cons of implementing an OTB activation platform like Optimizely Recommendations or Dynamic Yield vs developing a bespoke solution for personalising content recommendations. Use Case is CDP will house customers and personas, and headless CMS will contain the individual content assets. The intermediary solution will activate data between the two for personalisation of news content feeds. I saw GCP has some potentially applicable personalisation solutions such as recommendations AI, which seem to be targeted at retail, but would probably be relevant to this use case for all intents and purposes. The CDP is Segment and the CMS is Contentstack. Has anyone implemented an activation platform or personalisation solution under similar circumstances? Any advice or direction would be appreciated! Thank you
This is a question for best practice regarding Segment and Google Tag Manager. I would love to use Segment and GTM together when we need to implement a lot of additional tools, such as Amplitude, Appsfyler, or any other engagement tool since we can send event data without additional SDK implementation, etc.
So, my question is, if you use Segment and Google Tag Manager, how did you define what you will push through Segment and what will you push through Google Tag Manager? For example, when implementing a Facebook Pixel or any other 3rd party marketing tag?
From my point of view, implementing marketing pixels should stay in GTM because of the tag/trigger control.
If you are using Segment and GTM together, I would love to learn more about your best practice.
Hi there, we are a seed-stage startup in the personal development space. I am looking at building the marketing stack tool to have an accurate view of the user experience from acquisition through to adoption and retention for our upcoming React Native Mobile app. We qualify for the startup program of Segment and Mixpanel, which seems like a good option to get rolling and scale for free to learn how our current 60K free members will interact in the new subscription-based platform. I was considering AppsFlyer for attribution, and I am now looking at an affordable yet scalable Mobile Marketing tool vs. building in-house. Braze looks great, so does Leanplum, but the price points are 30K to start, which we can't do. I looked at OneSignal, but it doesn't have user flow visualization. I am now looking into Urban Airship and Iterable. Any advice would be much appreciated!
I'm looking to integrate a CDP into our Martech and eventually throughout the organization. We're starting to evaluate Segment, Tealium , and Adobe Experience Manager. Does anyone have experience with these tools? How easy was the onboarding/selection process? Was it challenging to explain the difference between DMP and CDP with leadership?
Does Segment have one set of code that would integrate Intercom and Amplitude? Or do I have to code in all 3 of them? Do you think it's necessary to have all three for a startup? (Im new here.. and new in the tech world too.)
