How to create a segment with more than 10 postal codes

How to create a segment with more than 10 postal codes

I want to segment my 15,000 contacts by by their zip/postal codes.  I would also like people to be automatically added to the correct area segment when they get added (thus why I am using segments vs lists).  What is the best way to create a segment when I have 10+ postal codes (the segment page doesn't allow for more than 10 criteria).


Re: How to create a segment with more than 10 postal codes

Hey there @RichS470 ,


While segments don't automatically update with changes to your overall contacts, they can be manually refreshed without changing criteria.


Additionally, could you elaborate a bit on what other criteria you're including in these segments, besides the zip codes?


I can get your requests passed on to our engineers, and any further elaborations and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Re: How to create a segment with more than 10 postal codes

Hi William,


Thank you for your quick response!  I talked with a Support Rep at Constant Contact and he has setup a meeting with a specialist for Monday.


Basically, I am covering the state of North Carolina.  With our previous provider, we segmented our contacts into one of 11 communities based on their zip code.  If I were to focus on one community there are 42 unique zip codes and 33 unique cities.  It was suggested a make a list for each zip code, buy my entire list of contacts that is close to 600 unique zip codes.


On a monthly basis, we receive a database update from our parent org and I was hoping to find a solution where members would automatically be aligned to the correct segment when they are imported into Constant Contact.
