A marketing campaign is a coordinated series of steps, events and associated content, with the goal to achieve a particular result. Typically, a campaign includes promotion of products.
With Episerver you can create, plan and execute a campaign for multiple channels in one place, and coordinate large volumes of personalized messages. When the campaign is running, you can track your campaign’s performance and analyze the results. You have access to an entire set of marketing tools available from the same familiar user interface.
Managing campaign content
Create your landing pages and craft the marketing message in Episerver CMS. To create a landing page with campaign content, you simply drag and drop your text, images, video, and products right onto the page. You can use visitor groups to personalize content as desired.
Review and publish campaign items
Collaborate with your colleagues to review and adjust the message before going live. Use the Projects feature to get an overview of all campaign items, and add your review comments. Use Content Approvals for the final review and approval, and publish all campaign items simultaneously, or schedule a desired publishing time.
Optimize campaign content
When the campaign is running, you will want to know what content and channels are performing best, and use customer insights to make the campaign increasingly effective. Use A/B testing to create and test variations of, for example, pages, images and blocks, to decide which one creates the desired conversions. Self-Optimized Block is an add-on that randomly displays a block variant to visitors. The variant that generates the most conversions, is the one that is automatically displayed the most over time.
