Step 3. Name and create the segment.

Use a name you and your peers can easily understand for your segment, for example – “Customers that have spent over £100”

Click the ‘create’ button to create your segment.

Boom!  You’ve just created a new segment to help you manage your audience.  From that day forth (until you decide otherwise), your customers will be segmented accordingly.
