Introduction

Goal

Synchronize Bloomreach Engagement segmentations to Content audiences in order to personalize pages.

Background

For an engaging experience, Bloomreach Content enables personalization of pages using the Experience manager based on segmentations managed in Bloomreach Engagement. Visitors are assigned a segment dynamically by Bloomreach Engagement while browsing the site and are subsequently served personalized pages for that segment.

Watch the video below for an introduction:

This page explains how to prepare your segmentations in Bloomreach Engagement for page personalization. For integrating your exposed segmentations with your Content Audiences, follow our guide on the Content SaaS x Engagement integration.

Expose a segmentation in Bloomreach Engagement

Before you can personalize pages in the Experience manager, you must create a segmentation in Bloomreach Engagement if you haven't done so yet.

Additionally, the segmentation must be "exposed" to Bloomreach Content, so it's available for your channel to use to personalize pages for the current visitor.

In Bloomreach Engagement, use the Show only exposed switch to filter exposed segmentations:

In Bloomreach Content, open the Content audiences application, and click on your desired Engagement project. Select the Segmentations tab and the corresponding segmentations will be listed.

Click on the ⟲ Segmentations button in the top right to manually synchronize your segmentations.
