Use the segment builder to upload a list of subscribers who have opted in to your SMS marketing. If you have collected these subscribers from a different marketing platform, please note that their phone numbers must go through a properly formatted CSV file before you use the segment builder.
Manual segments are static lists that do not change over time, such as subscribers who participated in last year's Memorial Day Sale. After you build the list, you can upload it as a CSV file. For more information, see How to format a CSV file.
Upload a segment
To upload a segment:
- Click Segments in the left navigation bar.
- Click + Create segment.
- Select Manually uploaded segment for the segment type, and then click Create.
- Fill in the required Name field. A Description is optional.

For all UK clients: Add +44 to the beginning of each phone number before uploading your .CSV file.
- Click Upload to add your .CSV file to the segment.
A success message appears once the process is complete. Your segment syncs until the segment size and match rate are determined.
- Refresh the page manually to check if syncing is complete.
