Promoted Content Settings (available only with Interaction Studio Promote)

When using promoted content, you first need to select the type of promoted content and configure the settings in Message Settings as detailed in Part 1 below. Then, you need to add dynamic content to your message to show the details about the product or content as detailed in Part 2 below.

There are three types of promoted content:

  • Static—promote a specific item or piece of content that doesn't change. For example, promoting a shovel that is on sale 
  • Dynamic—promote item(s) or content based on user behavior. For example, promoting several sale items based on the last item viewed 
  • Recommendations—similar to dynamic promoted content, you create a "recipe" for what the user will see

You must create a recipe in the CATALOG before you can use it to promote items or content

Part 1: Select the Type and Configure

  1. In Message Settings, on the Promoted Content tab, select the Type  
  2. Add rules based on the onscreen options

    Depending on the type of promoted content and the behavior you select, you may see other options. For example, if a time parameter is applicable, you will see that option.

  3. Select other options for Static or Dynamic Promoted Content
    1. Promote item even if being viewed—select this to help emphasize products or content 
    2. Skip previously viewed items—skip promoting any items or content the user has already viewed so they only see things they haven't looked at before 
    3. Skip previously purchased products—select this to help target products or content the user hasn't seen

Part 2: Add Dynamic Content to Your Message

Once you have selected the type of promoted content and selected options, you need to add dynamic content to your message to pull item or content attributes (name, description, price) into the message. For example, you want to show visitors the items they recently viewed. You can dynamically populate the product image and name based on what was last viewed by the visitor.

  1. Double click the text box in the message. The box around it will turn solid green
  2. Place your cursor where you want to add the attribute 
  3. Select 
  4. Select Promoted Item then select the attribute you want to include in the message (i.e. selecting Name will generate the name of the item or content in the message)
  5. Continue adding attributes as needed

Save Your Changes

  1. When you have finished updating Message Settings, click OK 
  2. Click SAVE or SAVE & CLOSE at the top right of the campaign window to save your campaign changes
