Content audiences work together with Bloomreach Engagement to enable the personalization of pages. The following documentation assumes a working knowledge of managing segmentations and email campaigns in Bloomreach Engagement.



See the Bloomreach Engagement documentation for more information.

How does content personalization work?

You create segmentations and/or email campaigns in Bloomreach Engagement. With the segment-based content personalization integration, the Bloomreach Engagement projects that are assigned to Bloomreach Content Channels are automatically added to your Content Audiences.

Visitors to your site can be assigned a segment by Bloomreach Engagement by an email campaign the visit originated from and/or dynamically while they are browsing the site. In the latter case, it can take a few page visits before enough information about the visitor is available to assign them a segment.

Bloomreach Content serves personalized pages based on the segment or segments assigned to the visitor. Each component on a page can have personalized variants for any number of segments.

When a visitor visits a page, for each component on that page, the personalization engine tries to match the best component variant to that visitor in the following order:

  1. Campaign variant matching the visitor's profile
  2. Segmentation variant matching the visitor's profile
    (in case the visitor profile matches multiple segmentation variants for a component, the order of the
    segmentations in the _Content audiences
    app determines which variant will be used)_
  3. Default variant (no personalization)

It is possible that a single page contains a combination of two or even all three options above for the same visitor, depending on the availability of matching variants for each component on that page. You can Preview a Personalized Page such combinations using an "alter ego" in the Experience manager application.
