What are the differences between the Send To audience dropdown options?

You can segment your audience in a few different ways or just send the broadcast to everyone. Here are the options.

Through the “Send To” dropdown in the broadcast composer you can select one of three options, listed below.

All Subscribers

This is the default option. Use this option to send a broadcast to your entire audience of currently active subscribers.

Audience Segment (Subscribers can match any tag)

With this audience type selected, your broadcast will only be sent to your campaign’s currently active subscribers who have opted into at least one of the audience tags you specify. For instance, if you specified the tags coffee, new york, and weekend for your broadcast:
 
Subscriber Has These Tags
Broadcast Received?
Reason
Subscriber 1
coffee, tea
Yes
This subscriber matches one of the specified tags. Any other tags this subscriber has does not disqualify them from receiving the broadcast.
Subscriber 2
coffee, new york, weekend
Yes
This subscriber matches all of the specified tags, but they would still receive this broadcast if they only matched one tag.
Subscriber 3
tea, boston
No
This subscriber does not match any of the specified tags for this broadcast.
Subscriber 4
N/A (No tags)
No
This subscriber does not have any tags applied to them. They will only receive broadcasts set to All Subscribers.

Audience Segment (Subscribers must match all tags)

Use this option to create highly targeted broadcasts. With this audience type selected, your broadcast will only be sent to your campaign’s currently active subscribers who have opted into all of the audience tags you specify. For instance, if you specified the tags coffee, new york, and weekend for your broadcast:
 
Subscriber Has These Tags

Reason
Subscriber 1
coffee, tea
No
This subscriber matches only one of the specified tags. They need to match all specified tags to receive this broadcast.
Subscriber 2

This subscriber matches all of the specified tags. Only subscribers with all of these tags will receive this broadcast.
Subscriber 3
tea, boston
No
This subscriber does not match any of the specified tags for this broadcast.
Subscriber 4
N/A (No tags)

This subscriber does not have any tags applied to them. They will only receive broadcasts set to All Subscribers.
