A Custom Group is a group of contacts that aren't segmented by any UpLaunch-specific criteria. In other words, they're a group of contacts that you want to have in their own group for ANY reason. The benefit of adding contacts to Custom Groups is that you will now be able to Bulk Email, Bulk SMS, and Filter these contacts by their Custom Group.
Examples Of Custom Groups
You have a group of contacts who you consider your Brand Ambassadors / VIPs
You have a group of contacts who are participating in an internal challenge
You have a group of contacts who are in a supplemental service, such as a barbell club.
