By now, you've read a full summer's worth of posts on Segmentation.
Oh, the memories!
On a one-by-one basis, you can segment customers on the basis of the attributes illustrated over the past three months. It's big time fun, and you'll make a bunch of bacon in the process.

What about the online customer who buys after receiving direct mail that drove the customer to Google to search for the item that the customer purchased, causing you to pay twice for the right to encourage this customer to order merchandise?
