Using campaigns in Personalization

Campaigns in Personalization describe how personalized information for your visitors displays on your website. Campaigns include settings for when the campaign is to be displayed to visitors and how its content is to be displayed. They can gauge which displayed content generates better results for certain actions. As an example, you may have a campaign that displays financial planning content to website visitors who scroll to the bottom of certain webpages for the next two months.

To view your available campaigns, or to change their settings, go to the Campaigns webpage. To do this:

  1. Sign in to Personalization.
  2. In the top menu, click Personalize.
  3. In the left menu, click Campaigns.

The following information is available about your campaigns:
